New in: Mini make up and polish haul

Hello sweethearts,Happy Monday :) I have a mini haul to share with you today,a few make up items and polishes I got in the past week. I will not talk in detail about the products,since some of them I haven't tested yet,but if you are interested I will do reviews :)

First I got a cute set that comes with a mascara and a black kohl eye pencil from Pupa, and it comes in a pretty silver pouch.It was on sale,plus it looked so festive I just couldn't pass it. Mascara is Pupalash Mascara Energizer and the kohl pencil comes in black with a smudge sponge at the end.I used the mascara only once,just to try it out,so far so good,but I want to test it out more :)

This is my little purple and glitter bunch :) Golden Rose Extreme sparkle eyeliner in 01 (silver glitter),Avon Super Shock gel eyeliner in plum (these I heard so so much about that I finally decided to try them ) Golden Rose Holiday in number 58,a beautiful purple/burgundy sand polish with gold and bronze glitter.And last but not least Golden Rose Rich Color in number 27- rich dark cream purple. You will see the nail polish swatches soon :)

I already have one of the Golden Rose extreme sparkle glitter eyeliners in blue and I love it,so when I saw they are on sale for 1,50 I was so happy.All I can say is I am in Love with this silver beauty,I already have made a make up look using it and I want this eyeliner in every existing color <3

Schwarzkopf Gliss hair repair leave in spray conditioner for long hair prone to split ends- I love the Gliss line and use shampoos,conditioners and masks for years,I am a huge fan of these spray leave in treatments.They smell nice and work great :)

The last thing I got is this cute Christmas ornament like bubble bath from Avon.It looked so festive and Christmasy plus I love the white lilly scent.

That was my mini haul for today,hope you liked it :)

Love and kisses :***

Sprinkle some gold dust

Gold,sparkles,glitter...what better way to get in the holiday spirit :) To kick start the countdown to Christmas I have a beautiful gold sparkly nail polish,to lift your mood and get you started singing "Jingle bells" :)

Like you can see from the pics above,this beauty is "Bellaoggi" Strass Effect in number 05 (I would call it gold dust,but that's just me :) Its a perfect holiday nail polish,opaque in two coats,applies with no problem thanks to its wide brush. I was surprised  to see it dries to a sand finish,but you can still see the glitter <3

There are a few more colors in their Strass Effect collection and I can't wait to get the silver one too :)  After all its that magical time of the year when you can use and abuse glitter.I know I will :)

Hope you have your holiday mood and Santa hats on :)

Love and kisses :***

Summer recap - beach,pastel pink hair,nails and dogs

Hello my sweethearts,I feel like I haven't blogged in ages...but I really needed some time apart from blogging and social networking just to spend time with my loved ones and enjoy the sunny days. This post will be a little recap of my summer :)

Spent a lot of time doing nails this summer,practicing and perfecting my nail art :) I even started working with acrylic powder and I did a first acrylic set of nails on myself and my BFF :)
Some of the nail art

Snake skin print- these are one of my all time favorites <3

Do what you love and it will never feel like work - I feel really blessed that I am doing what I love and am passionate about and I enjoy every new day at the salon :)

For the longest time I wanted to try out pastel hair colors so I went for pastel pink,and LOVED IT !!!

Spent a lot of time working,but still got to go to the beach and have some fun :)

My lil man loves making sand castles <3

Flok loves the beach too :) (My Bff's dog )

I left the best for last :) My fav part of the Summer 2013- adopting Nina,amazing labrador from the animal shelter. If you follow me on twitter,you know we wanted a dog for a really long time,just couldn't decide on the breed or if we want a puppy or an adult dog and so on.But since our son's birthday was getting closer we thought the moment is perfect.We went to the animal shelter and fell in love with 2 year old labrador we call Nina. She is a little more then 3 weeks with us and we love her,she is such a good, well behaved,sweet and loving dog.

First time we met in the shelter,she just jumped at me and I knew she would come home with us :)

She sometimes comes to the salon to visit me and check the nail art :D

Lol,this is how we look when we wake up :D

And that's how I spent my summer, how was yours? Are you excited for Fall?

Love and kisses :***

Random Sunday: Nail art Seminar,day at the beach,yoga and dreams that came true

Hello my sweethearts,long time no see :) I feel I haven't blogged in so long I just don't know from where to start. So,let me just say a few words about the Gel,Acrylic and Nail art Seminar I attended. It was a two day  day event with presentation of IBD and Galaxy products and it was great,I am so grateful I had the chance to learn so much. I started practicing nail art on a daily basis,I fell in love with acrylic paints and tried nail art using UV gel.
The seminar made me think of how much I love the beauty industry,how much I enjoy doing hair and nails,and anything beauty related really. I was always good with hair so I finally decided to step it up and make a career change and start doing what I really love.I am currently at my BFF's salon (she is a hairstylist and a nail technician for 15 years) where I am training for a hairstylist (and practicing my nail art).All I can say is that I am so happy and I am loving every minute of it.

Practice,practice ... :)

The roses and flower petals I did on my friend's nails :)

Last weekend I took some time off and went to the beach with hubby and friends.We did a 13 km walk along the beach,had lunch and took a yoga class at sunset.It was a great relaxing day,it was so much fun :)

Paradise <3

For the end of this post I leave you with my latest mani,tropical inspired flowers I am in love <3

That is all for today,hope you all have an amazing Summer <3

Love and kisses:***

Roses for the sunshine :)

Hello my lovelies,hope you are having a great day :) We are in the month of June already,summer is just around the corner,but we had so much rain it felt more like November lately.I am tired of wearing rubber rain boots and always fussing with an umbrella. I want sunshine,and I want it NOW! And what better way to call up the Sun then with some flower manicure?
I am no expert in flower nail art,I admire ladies who do some amazing flower designs and I wanted to try it myself for the longest time. I have been practicing a little and yesterday I came up with the design I am happy with.I liked it so much I did the same nail art on my toes as well :)

My first roses <3 Aren't they cute? I added some polka dots just to mix and match. Like I said,I still need a lot of practice with my roses/flowers but I love how these turned out.All painted with nail polish.
The weather was so gloomy and I am sorry I couldn't take better pics outside #bbloggerproblems

As a base I used baby blue polish by Londesa called Flert polish,for roses I mixed opaque white by Golden Rose Protein (#242) and neon pink by Yes Love (#44),for leaves I used Bellaoggi Sixty seconds green polish (#18).Top coat is Eveline 3in1.

For the weekend I will be attending a 2 day seminar about gel and acrilic nails and nail art and I am so excited too see the new techniques and nail art experts at work :)

 I will try to take pics so you can expect a blog post on that too.

That is all for today,hope you liked it:)

Love and kisses:***

Latest obsession: Bright pink lipstick

Hello my sweethearts,Happy Monday :) Today I want to talk about my latest obsession - bright barbie pink lipstick <3 I was always a nude lippie kinda girl,then around Christmas I fell in love with classic red lipsticks and now Spring time has inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and try something new :)

I was really into trying it out to see how I feel about it,didn't want to spend a lot of money on a lipstick that I may not end up liking and using so I went to the drugstore trying to find some not so expensive lipstick. On the Miss Sporty display this pink beauty caught my eye. I have never tried any make up products from this brand before,but I liked the color so much,the fact that its a cream formula is a plus and the price combo was total win.
Miss Sporty - 009 Innocence - Perfect Color Lipstick line- (I love that they didn't just put a number but also gave the name to the lipstick)

Simple and sleek dark blue classic lipstick packaging,cream formula,well pigmented. The lipstick doesn't dry out my lips but if you already have flakie or lips that are more on the dry side I would recommend to use a lip scrub and a lip balm before applying. The staying power is ok,after all this is not a long lasting or long wear formula lipstick so you will have to reapply during the day.Now the only thing I am not that crazy about is the scent,it has a watermelon scent (or at least it reminds me of watermelon) and its pretty strong,but once you apply it it fades away quickly.

To sum it up,I have really been liking this lipstick and since I got it I wore it almost every day. I feel like I don't need much make up,just my pink lippie some sunglasses and I am ready to go :)

Have you tried this lipstick ? What are your favorite affordable drugstore lipsticks?

Colorful summer mani

Hello my sweethearts,hope you are having an amazing day :) I have a quick post for you today,just to show you my fun and bright summer inspired manicure. Since the weather here is pretty crazy lately (from 30 degrees,rain,cloudy,storms,you name it we have it all) I wanted to have something bright and funky,something summery on my nails.This is what I came up with

Leopard design with neons make it summer perfect <3 Opaque white polish I used as a base is by Golden Rose,all the neons are by Yes Love.

Have to admit,its not the most neat nail art I have done,and its far from perfect,but I love it anyway <3It made a gloomy day so much brighter and better :)

Hope you like it too :)

Love and kisses:***

Review - Golden Rose Stick Concealer

Hello my sweethearts,hope you are having a great day :) Let's talk about concealer today. I think its a must have in every woman's make up bag,and its an essential weather we want to cover up dark under eye circles, hide blemishes or play up the contour. I will show you my new favorite concealer I found at the drugstore not so long ago and I fell in love.It is Golden Rose stick concealer 

Now lets start from the packaging- This is to be honest the only thing I don't like about this concealer. It has a small lipstick like transparent plastic packaging,that looks like it can break really easy if it falls,and I will not lie,it does look kinda cheap.Another issue I have is that when you try to twist it back after use it doesn't go all the way down back in the tube,and if you are not careful you can ruin the concealer.

It contains 4,5 g of product and I got mine in shade 04.I noticed on their display in the drugstore that there are quite a few shades to choose,and that is a big plus.They even have a pure white shade which I think can be great to use as eye shadow base.(I think I will go back to the drugstore to pick it up)

The concealer is super creamy,it goes on your skin so smooth, amazingly pigmented.It blends so easy,you can use a brush,sponge (I like to use a classic wedge make up sponge) or your fingers. I tried all three and it works well no matter what application technique you choose,it blends like a dream.
I use it under my eyes to highlight the area when contouring and to hide the lack of sleep,then set it with my tr Stay Matte powder by Rimmel.It does not crease at all,it stays for hours and that is one of the main reasons I love this concealer.

It also covers up smaller blemishes,but my skin is clear now (thank God) so I don't know about acne or scars. I tried is as eye shadow primer/base and it is amazing! The eye shadow stayed put in place without the slightest hint of creasing the entire day (I put my make up on around 9 am and took it of at night before bed and the eye shadow still looked perfect).
One more great thing is the price - The drugstore was having some of Golden Rose products on discount and I payed around 1,70 euros #win Even without discount the concealer is super affordable and it costs less then 3 euros.

So if you are looking for a good concealer for under your eyes,to cover up smaller blemishes,contouring and a great eye shadow primer I would recommend you to try Golden Rose stick concealer.

Hope this review was helpful.

Have you tried Golden Rose stick concealer? What is your favorite concealer?
