Firmoo Sunglasses on a Sunday Funday

Today I will present something that is not exactly a nail accessory but it looks great next to my nails. If you're a regular reader of my posts, you probably know by now that I like to hold different interesting objects in my hand while taking pictures of my nails. This time will be no exception. Also, I'm planning to start a new blog soon, on which I will describe products that are outside the nail care family. So consider this post a transition towards that :) The new blog will soon be available at Do not worry though, I will continue to dedicate the same kind of attention to as until now and you'll be able to look at wonderful new manicures again and again, just like until now ;)

So what is this mysterious object that I wish to present today? A few weeks ago I received a special package from In case you haven't heard about them yet, they sell optical solutions, namely prescription glasses and sunglasses. What is special about them is that they do it worldwide and online. You just send them your measurements (and optionally your prescription from an ophthalmologist), choose your favorite model from, and they send you your glasses. The great thing that is that you can upload a picture of your face to their site and you can try on their glasses (on your picture) in a virtual manner, online. You can this way try on glasses from the comfort of your home before deciding to buy anything. If you decide to buy some of their products, know that they offer free shipping to virtually any part of the world, although your own country might charge you with import taxes (VAT). In Romania the package price limit under which you won't be charged with the 24% VAT is 45 EUR.

Fortunately I have perfect vision and do not wear prescription glasses, but I tried our one of their sunglasses:

I have worn them for a few weeks now and I'm very satisfied with them. The lenses are of high quality and perfectly clear. I've used them for driving, for walking on sunny mountains and also in the city. They have served me well in all conditions, so I'm happy that I have them.

Firmoo was kind enough to send me some accessories for free: a box a cloth bag for for the glasses, a microfiber and a tool for tightening the screws.

I personally prefer to use the box instead of the cloth bag. Although very sturdy it's also surprisingly compact and fits nicely in my purse. 

Don't forget to pay attention to the nails, though. They look great with the sunglasses in my hand!

The polish I am wearing is Essie's Sunday Funday (Nr. 268), a light coral shade with some silver particles that look great in the sun. 

One final detail picture about the sunglasses. The model I have chosen is available here
