BPS - Neon Nail Studs

Today's post is a special anniversary post with number 300 on!

When the colored nail studs started to appear, I wondered how the bloggers had so much patience to paint each and every stud... I am not joking, but some serious time went by until I realized that those were in fact colored studs!

Today I am going to show you a manicure made with neon colored studs. They have been sent to me by Born Pretty Store for a review.

For this manicure I have used:
  • Golden Rose with protein - Nr. 336. I have brought it from But it's an older Collection that's not available anymore in Romania. If you find polishes from this Collection, don't hesitate to buy them because they have an excellent formula. They are long lasting and have a great and saturated colors. 
  • Nail Studs from Born Pretty Store. It's item Nr. 12408 and you can find it here.

The wheal contains 2-3 mm nail studs in the form of dots, large squares, small squares and leafs. Every wheal contains 3 colors. I have chosen pink, neon green and blue, but Born Pretty Store offers 4 different color combinations. I am sure you will find the one that suits your needs best :-)

For this manicure I have used the dots and the small squares. I think they look nice in this combination :-)

What I really like about these nail studs is that they are only 2-3 mm wide and they stick well to your nails. I have tried bigger studs too, but they just won't follow the natural curvature of my nails and would fall off easily. It's not the case with these, though :-)

I Love Hean - Nr. 807 (pink)

At the beginning of the month I have shown you I Love Hean - Nr. 810, a really amazing blue polish. You can view it here. Today I am going to show you another polish from I Love Hean. It's nr. 807 and I got it from Magiq for a review. 

I find the name of this polish so cute, I had to apply some hearts on my nails to match it :-). The heart studs were sent by Born Pretty Store. You will find the here, item ID: 4993. Other manicures with these studs are this and this.

I Love Hean - Nr. 807

Just the color and a top coat:

With the hearts studs:

I think of this polish as the little sister of Nr. 810 :-). It has a similar shimmer like Nr. 810. As the sun shines directly ot it, you will see a nice purple shimmer appear on the surface of your nails.


Wear pink and have a nice day!

Golden Rose Nail Art - Nr. 117

I have told you a while ago that Golden Rose has sent me some polishes for review (first post -> here).
Today I am going to show you Golden Rose Nail Art - Nr. 117. To be short: it's a red polish with a really thin brush :-).

For this manicure I have used:
  • I love Hean - Nr. 810 (see it also -> here)
  • Flormar Nr. NA01
  • Flormar Nr. NA12
  • Golden Rose Nail Art - Nr. 117

I have used two other nail art polishes so I can test them one after the other and form an opinion.
Let's take a look at a close up:

It's true that the black and the white polishes are pretty old, but I had to sweat blood to get those lines as straight as possible! The lines are thicker, because I had to apply at least 2 or 3 coats to cover the whole length of the nail.

There are some reasons why I have worked easier with the Golden Rose liner:

  • it's new and the polish is still very fresh. It has a thick and pigmented formula which was a pleasant surprise for me. 
  • the brush is long (2 cm. The Flormar brush has only 1,5 cm and that extra 0,5 cm really makes a difference) 
  • the brush is thicker than the Flormar brush (it's more visible at the end of the brush).

As my Flomar liners are getting old and start to thicken, I decided to try the black (Nr. 106) and white (nr. 101) liner from Golden Rose next. Nr. 130 seems to be nice as well and it costs only 8 RON :-).

You can find all available colors at the official website -> or directly here.

I Love Hean - Nr. 810

The nail polish that I will be showing you today has really surprised me. I will be honest with you. I only ordered it because it was cheap :-). I wasn't looking for a new polish or a new shade, I just ordered it because I couldn't miss the chance to buy a new polish (beside the approx. 30 bottles I haven't tested yet).

I applied it without much enthusiasm, but once it was on my nails I fell in love with it!

This is I love Hean - Nr. 810. Well ... My point exactly! I Love Hean! :-) They couldn't find a better fitting name for this brand!

I have bought it from for only 7 RON (approx. 1.5 EUR / 2 USD).

It's not just a simple light blue, but it has a really nice somewhat darker, holographic blue shimmer in it.

Now I wonder ... is the whole I Love Hean Collection as beautiful as this one, or was I just lucky by choosing exactly this shade?
Nr. 810 is the second bottle from the first row.

And one more important thing: it's 3 Free! This polish contains no Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde.
