Matching Manicures - polka dots

Hi guys! Hope you're having great Sunday. .
Today is the day to do a Matching manicures with my friends from Balkan Beauty bloggers group.
The time is come to do polka dots :)

Everyone who follows my Blog or Instagram, Facebook or Twitter could already see me doing dots in all kinds od ways..but for this occasion I did brand new ones. 

For this design , I was inspire by a picture I found on Google... it's from  I'm Anaa.
It takes some time and patience to do this but I think it's worth it!




For the base I've used  Alpine snow by O.P.I, and for the dots: I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw and He blue it this time! both by O.P.I




Hope you liked today's manicures. Till the next time xoxo

Back to school nail art tutorials

Hello guys =) how are you doing?
Since the school is just about to start I decided to do 2 easy designs that I taught will be cool for going back to school (rime lol)

First design is actually very popular and I was planing to do it for like a year now .
It's Argyle inspired nail art!


Recently I bought 2 O.P.I polishes from the coca-cola collection on eBay and I immediately  think of this design when I saw them. I will be posting review for them soon so stay tuned!

So how I did it?!
...


 1 I painted my nails with silver polish
2 I put striping tape in X shape, I've bought mine on eBay for like a 1$ ( lot)
3 I painted one side of X in black and other in this peachy-pink color
4 I've immediately removed stripes after step 3 ( don't wait until the polish dries)
5 and 6  I've used a white striper to do the lines, to complete the design.
at the end I've added a top coat and that's it =)


For second design I was inspired by my notebooks. I always scribble something when I'm bored =)


 This one is even easier then first one.


 
1 paint your nails white then make blue stripes with nail striper
2 make coral/red stripe across the blue ones
3 on this step you can make pretty much what ever you want with black striper or toothpick =)

and that's it =)))


These are my 2 easy back to school designs =) hope you've liked them and you'll try them =)

Little Mermaid inspired nail art

Hi guys I hope you're doing great. I just got back from a vacation and the first thing I had to do is, of course, a manicure lol.. and share it with you =)
The nail art that I'll be showing you today is LITTLE MERMAID nail art inspired by the Mermaid collection by Paint Shop Polish (PSP) that I reviewed not so long ago. If you've missed that one and want to check it out here is the LINK.
 Although this design is inspired by this collection, they're not the only polishes I've used. I'll list all the polishes and tools that I used bellow =)

Here's what I did...


 As you can see I did an ombre on my thumb and index finger using O.P.I's "HE BLUE IT THIS TIME!" (I posted swatches of this one on my INSTAGRAM) , China Glaze FOR AUDREY (yet to be swatched) and O.P.I's DON'T BOSSA NOVA ME AROUND (review here). I done the starfishes with a doting tool and then I toped the thumb with SEAWEED GARDENS by PSP from their mermaid collection and index with MERMAID'S GOLD. They gave the most amazing shine and perleascent effect.

On the middle finger I decided to do some seaweed in the sea lol  .. as a base I've used O.P.I's "HE BLUE IT THIS TIME!" again, and then I painted the seaweed with nail striper using gorgeous sparkling green polish by Northern Star called SPARKLING SEAWEED. This polish actually was the inspiration for this finger and I also did a review on it that you can check out HERE! At the end I topped it with UNDER THE SEA by PSP (from mermaid collection).

On the ring finger I've done little mermaid's bikini top and just the top of her tail. As a base I used O.P.I's DON'T BOSSA NOVA ME AROUND. For the bikini top I've used Lilacism by Essie , A GRAPE FIT! by O.P.I an SIREN SONG by PSP and a nail striper. For the tail I used the perfect mermaid tail color - FISHTAIL by PSP.

And last but not the least is my pinky finger =) I was inspired by the Ariel's (little mermaid's) hair so I just painted it red! But not just any red, it's sparkling red by Northern Star called BURNING EMBERS ( read a full review HERE)

more pictures =)) ...

 And that's it guys =) I hope you've enjoyed reading and watching my design as much as I've enjoyed doing it :*

Till the next time xoxo

Matching Manicures - glitters

Hi guys , how are you today?
Recently I joined a facebook group called Matching manicures- Balkan Beauty Bloggers and the first "assignment" after I joined in was to create glitter manicures :)

The one that I did is very simple and it includes my 2  favorite polishes :Essie Lilacism as a base and Shimmer Polish - Nicole ( gorgeous glitter polish read a review on that one here).




These types of manicures are so easy and fast to do and doesn't require any additional tools.
Since this is my first Matching Manicures post I hope I did it good :)

Let's talk make-up #2 - Beauty UK

I just realized I didn't do a make-up post for a looong time, so I decide to show you one eyeshadow pallet, eyebrow set and blush from a brand called BeautyUK that I absolutely love. I already talked about this brand in the post about some of their lipsticks and crayons that you can find HERE. Although this is really affordable drugstore brand the quality of their products is amazing and its great both for beginners and more advance make-up artists.
They're based in UK but they have an online shop as well and they do ship worldwide =)

Let me first show you this gorgeous eyeshadow palette that I have..


 This is a part of the Posh palettes.  They are available in four sensational collections, this one is the newest no.4 called Galaxy. This palettes are well pigmented and perfectly presented and they are the new generation of Beauty UK’s famous, award-winning eye palettes. 
It contains 10 mostly shimmery shades. The case is made of a hard white plastic so it wont break easily, and it has a useful mirror on the inside of the lid plus the 2 side applicator. 
The colors are stunning, they go from nudes to purples, blues and blacks. Perfect for darker night looks but also more lighter, natural day looks. I simply love it. The only downside for me is the applicator because I don't really like these sponged ones :/ But I do have my own brushes so this isn't that big of a deal.

Let me show you how they swatch ...





The second thing I want to show you today is ALL IN ONE BROW DEFINITION KIT from the same brand. The set comes in a cute little packaging that's made from hard plastic as well.  It contains 3 shades and one colorless wax  that helps keeping the brows in their place. The set also includes some really good tweezers and double ended application brush. I love how cute and little they are but jet so efficient.




In the back of the packaging you can find the instructions, and they said:

step 1- Shape and define your brows using the angled brush. Dip in the soft, colorless wax and use smooth, angled strokes.
step 2- Use the soft blending brush to apply the setting powder. This will fill in any sparse areas and lock the brow in place.
step 3- Perfect your look by using the precision tweezers to remove any stray hairs. Done! 

I love this set because it suitable for all hair types and colors , you can easily mix the 3 shades to get exactly what you need. As you can see on the photo I use the lightest color the most  =)
If you don't already own some sort of brow kit I think you can give this one a go for only £3.99!


Last thing I have to show you for today is my favorite  highlighter/blush  =) . It's a baked-box blush by Beauty UK no.3 called HALO (great name)



 Although the box says it's a blush in my opinion it's more of a highlighter because it gives you amazing glow and not much color. But I like it that way because you can use it just like a highlighter or blush in the summer when you only want something sparkling on your cheeks =)
 The packaging is made from cardboard slim, square box with a square mirror within the flip lid.  The cardboard compact closes  tight thanks to a magnet. The baked blush contains 4,4g of product which is really good for the price of £3.99. 

look how gorgeous this is

amazing glow

This is an absolute must have for all of us girls. It's so wearable and usable in more ways, for such an affordable price. 

Overall I obviously love all of the  products I've show you today and really think every girl should have something like this in her make-up bag, whether you do your make-up a lot or from time to time like me =)

In case you don't have BeautyUK in your country, don't worry they have an online shop that ships worldwide and here's the LINK =
