  • White Stamping Polish, Item Nr. 1381, that you find here. For only 3.41 $ you will get a white and a black stamping polish.

BPS - Sweet Color - Nr. 005

Today I want to show you a nice lilac polish, that reminds me of how beautiful the summer was. While outside is cold and raining, I am dreaming of hot sunny days.

This polish was sent to me by Born Pretty Store for a review.  

For this manicure I have used Sweet Color - Nr. 005. You can find this polish at www.bornprettystore.com, item nr. 15727 or by clicking here.

I have applyed it in 2 coats + top coat to get this shade.

Beauty Bloggers Meeting Cluj 3rd Edition - Manicure

As written in my previous post, for the 3rd Edition of the beauty Bloggers Meeting in Cluj I wore a black and white dress with red shoes.

My manicure consisted of these colors too:

For this manicure I have used:
  • Bourjois - Rouge in style (red base, in 1 coat)
  • Flormar - M103 (white base, in 2 coats)
  • Golden Rose Nail Art Nr. 101 (white), 106 (black) and 117 (red)

Of course, Gilbert also had to inspect to polish :-)


Without knowing that at the Beauty Bloggers Meeting we will have a goodie bag from Rouge Boutique, I have used their cuticle pen. I like it because it's based on jojoba oil and it's not sticky.

Beauty Bloggers Meeting Cluj 3rd Edition


On the 8th of November, 2014 I was invited to the 3rd Edition of the Beauty Bloggers Meeting in Cluj.



The event was organized by Cleopatra Coman (http://passionforstylishlife.com/),
Anca Pop (http://aquashells.blogspot.ro/) and Laura Opris (http://classyandpink.com/) with the help of the co-organizer Farmec, at the Centrul de frumusete Farmec.
 

For the first time, the event also had a dressing code: Celebrity Inspired. I have chosen a simple black and white dress with red shoes. I have seen this outfit on Olivia Wilde :-)



The evening began with a short introduction of the participants. Although this is the 3rd edition of the Beauty Bloggers Meeting in Cluj, from year to year there are always new faces.
It was nice to hear that some of the bloggers have managed to transform their hobbies into a business and it's staring to work for them.

In the coffee break we had the chance to taste the delicious raw sweets made by Rawana. Their web site is at the moment under construction, but you can find them near the food court in Iulius Mall.

Rawana Raw Sweets

The event had a guest speaker, Luiza from Oriflame. She is the Online Communications Manager at Oriflame and revealed how the companies think about the collaborations with the bloggers, what expectations they have, and how they (at least at Oriflame Roamnia) are trying to turn the one time collaborations into long term relationships.


I also took a picture with the nail bloggers from Cluj :-)

With Iulia Beldean (http://iuliabeldean.blogspot.ro/) and Mihaela Dobosi (http://www.lacquerbuzz.com/)
The evening couldn't end without the goodie bags! Yeah!
All the participants got the following goodies:

Pantene: Anti Hair Fall Shampoo

C-THRU: Deodorant body spray + Eau de toilette Pure Illusion

Oriflame: the new perfume Possess and a whole True Perfection face care program (day cream, night cream, face serum and eye creme). I already started using it and I LOVE it.

Dove: Shower gel and Body Lotion

Elmiplant: Anti Wrinkle Cream and CC Cream. I wanted to try this CC Cream for a long time and now I have the chance to do it!

Yves Rocher:  a lot of goodies :-). Body Lotion with Olive Oil, eye shadow, Body and Hair Oil, Shower gel with roses, Gentle Make-up Remover, Evidence Eau de Parfum and a Clay Mask for face and hair.

Sephora: CC Cream, Tinted Wash Off Tan Lotion and the polish I was looking for a looong time: a simple silver glitter topper (Silver Fever)

Sephora: Silver Fever

Melkior: Liquid Eye Liner, Extra Volume Mascara, Lipstick, a mirror. I have never ever worn a red lipstick. It's about time I try it :-)

Farmec (my favorites): the whole autumn-winter collection and a wrinkle blur creme. The Polishes, from left to right are: Your Highness, Go Get the Girl, Stanta's Here, It's Freezing out There, Enjoy Your dark Side, Honey I'm Home, Tree's Rock. Of course, a new and detailed post about these polishes will follow!

Rouge Boutique: Cuticle Balsam, Post Waxing & Shaving Serum
 The organizers have also thought about giving us a diploma. I received one for being the "Best Nail Artist". Thank you!

During the event, refreshments were offered by Aqua Carpatica.  At home I only drink this kind of water, it's really the best I found on our market! Totally recommend it!

Once again:

In Mood For Black

I have missed Halloween this year... I just wasn't in the mood for it.

My nails aren't in their best shape either. For the past 3 weeks I only wore base coats and applied vitamin A oil daily, before going to sleep. My hair feels always dry, no matter what and how much hair mask, hair conditioner or different nourishing oils I apply.

Now I am taking some supplements (I have done this once a few years ago and it really did help), Beauty Complex from Doppelherz (more info here).

Today I was in mood for black. I think dark colors look great on short nails:


For this manicure I have used:
  • Flormar True Color - Nr. 027 (1 coat of black polish used as a base color)
  • China Glaze - Get Carried Away (2 coats)
  • Astor Pro Manicure - Already dry! (top coat)


I haven't used Get Carried Away for approximately a year, but now I am in love with it! I will be wearing it the whole week!


Get Carried Away has a light black base, with tiny silver glitters, medium sized silver and copper hexagonal glitters. It's a nice combination. 

Let yourself Get carried Away! It's still week-end :-)


What do you think about Gilbert? He did grow from the list time I have shown him to you, isn't he?

Essie - Full Steam Ahead

Although it's the end of September, we had a lovely weather this weekend. I took advantage of it and planted some tulips that will hopefully bloom in the spring. I have ordered the bulbs online, from here. It's a really cute site, and you don't have to worry about planting at the right time, because they will only deliver your order when the time is right :-)

Today's manicure is not a typical autumn manicure, but the tulips and the lovely weather did not let me use other colors :-)


For this manicure I have used:
  • Essie - Full Steam Ahead, a timid lilac shade with tiny little silver shining particles,  from the 2013 Summer Collection
  • Green and blue neon nail studs from Born Pretty Store. Item Nr.12408 , available here

After the first two coats of the Essie polish have dried, I have applied a third coat in which I have immediately placed the studs. After drying I have added a top coat to make sure that I won't lose the studs.



Gilbert was of course also present. He found the polish in the grass and decided that it belongs to him :-)


One more quick look at him :-)
