In a galaxy far far away - First attempt

Hey girls!

For today's manicure I have a "first attempt" technique again wich is Galaxy nails. I've been meaning to try this for a long time and the 10 days of nail art challenge gave me the chance to finally do it.

Pentru manichiura de azi v-am pregătit din nou o tehnică la "prima încercare" și anume unghiuțe galactice. Am vrut să  fac modelul acesta de multă vreme și iată că provocarea 10 zile the nail art mi-a dat șansa să o fac în sfârșit.
I'm pretty pleased with the result although I've seen on my fellow bloggers so many awesome designs so I feel such a rookie ^^

Illusory shades of pink - Contest entry

Hello ladies!

I was saying a while ago that I'll try to write my posts in both languages (romanian & english), although I know it'll be more time consuming I think it's better this way plus I'm showing a little national spirit.

Vă spuneam acum ceva timp că voi incerca să scriu  în ambele limbi( română  și engleză), deși știu că îmi va lua mai mult timp cred că e mai bine așa, dau  și eu dovada de puțin spirit național
Now that things are on the right track concerning me I can focus more on my blog, be more hardworking and I'm hoping to get done all the projects I had in mind.

A little more love - Collaboration

Hei girls!

Let me just start by saying this is the first time I'm wearing my nails all black and I'm pretty sure it's going to be the last time too. This whole manicure was kind of an experiment I've used a matifying top-coat for the first time and I'm not very pleased by it (a product by Flormar) because my nails aren't that matte and I can't figure out what I did wrong because I did exactly what the instructions said. Also the design looked so much better in my head :)) and I'm a bit disappointed by the end result of this mani. But anyways here they are:
This design is part of the 31 weeks collaboration and I had to be inspired by a song in this theme. So I picked my newest all time favourite song Moya - A Little More love.

Sweet pink cupcakes

Hello readers!

As promised, today I'm showing you my first design on someone else's nails. I have to admit I enjoyed it and I hope I'll have the chance to do it again if my friends would agree to be my guinea pigs (no offense intended^^)
So moving on to the nails. They're for a special occassion - my friends birthday so I couldn't resist the temptation of doing cupcakes again.

Gray mood with a dash of pink

Hello pretty ladies!

It finally feels like I can breathe a little! I have a lot of catching up to do but I'm pretty sure things will go back to normal now that my exams are over ^^ I have a ton of plans for this blog and for my nails so I hope to keep you busy with my ramblings but just a bit.
Now moving on to my nails for today - I had in mind a gray shade that I haven't used in a long time and I thought it would be a nice change of pace after all that glitter/color/techniques madness.

Birthday nails


As promised here I am with my birthday nails ^^ I turned 21!!
I had so many ideas for this manicure maybe to many :)) I wanted to do something special and for a long time now I wanted to try some cupcakes on my nails so these are my first ones. Also I couldn't leave the glitter out for this occasion and on my thumb I tried to paint some roses and some lace but I'm not very pleased with the result. But let's not spoil the fun from the beginning!
I'm sorry I don't have some pics in natural light but I had such a busy weekend and by the time I had the chance to do so they were not that pretty after 2 days of reckless behaviour -regarding the nails I mean :))

Colored crayons - Colaborare

Hei hei!

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend ^^ Today I'm showing you a design which was fun to wear and received  a few compliments. Maybe I went a little crazy using so many colors but I think the milky base tonned everything down a little.
This mani is also part of the usual Saturday collaboration and the theme is as you've probably guessed - stripes.

Valentine's Day Series - My vision of love

So hello ladies!

I'm again fashionably late I'm sorry for that, again but all would be over soon and I will be able to dedicate more time for this blog ^^ So let's talk about my vision of love now...well I was going to make some really cute newspaper nails with a special dedication actually but I didn't like how those came out so I ended up with this design below wich is rather simple yet elegant.
I've used a darker shade of red - Farmasi #47 (which I just love) and on the index fingers I've combined Essence - Make it golden (#67) with a Chissa #204. Then with a template I made those cute hearts ^^ and then of course added the rhinestones and the microbeads.

Valentine's Day Series - Childish Love


I have to admit I wanted to skip this one and redirect you to this one. I still am short on time so my mani isn't elaborate or wow's cute and childish which is what was supposed to be in the first place right?
Since I'm pretty stressed out I couldn't come up with something cooler than this. But if you add a little something from you I'm sure you can create a cute mani.

Rivers of sunny colors - Colaborare

Hello pretty ladies!

I guess lately only the collaborations keep me going but I like doing nails based on a theme ^^ So today came the turn of the orange nails. I must say orange is not my favourite color but somehow I have like five or six polishes of this shade. I can't even figure out if it goes well with my skin fact I can't figure out if my skin tone is warm or cold. What do you say girls? How do you figure out what kind of skin tone you have? I would love to hear your thoughts, does orange go well on my nails? Help me here ^^
If you wonder what's with the title, let me enlighten you!

Valentine's Day Series - The Unreachable

Hellou lovely ladies!

I'm glad you're still here with me reading my ramblings. I thought I should thank you all from time to time for your constance presence. Even though I don't always deliver my posts in time with the other girls (go easy on me ^^) I do my best to do some nail art that will wow you so you'll forget my delay.
Going back to the theme - I think this unreachable girl is very powerful and she's playing hard to get so Vday isn't something she celebrates.

Liebster award!

Hello ladies!

Imagine my surprise when WoW nail art (don't forget to check out her cute blog) told me she had given me a Liebster award. Now, as you know I haven't been around for long (nearly 2 months) so I was very happy to receive such news. I think it's a wonderful idea to circulate these kind of awards because it's a great way to know each other and to discover more people with same affinities ^^
The rules that come along with this prize:

Valentine's Day Series - The broken hearted girl

Hello darlings!

Time really flys by me, it's already February and the middle of my Valentine's Day series which I'm really glad I'm not doing it alone ^^
Today's turn is of the broken hearted girl, well is this supposed to be a sad theme? If you think of what a broken hearted girl feels and how Valentine's Day goes by....yes. But instead of going down that road I thought let's think of what this girl needs (maybe I'm wrong and what I going to propose is far from truth but bear with me) and I guess she would like roses and some apologies from that special someone.

Mint patterns - Colaborare

Hello Hello!

Today is Saturday, and if it's Saturday it's in fact exciting Saturday you all know why so I won't repeat myself (I've already done it three times in my first scentence this post ^^). So let's get back to bussiness!!
Today's theme is Inspired by a color, boy this one gave me a little something something to think about and you know me (just a figure o speach I haven't been around for long only a month or so..hihi) I wanted to do something special. And when I say special I actually mean anything else but plain color.
For this theme I could've done anything, use any technique but I then when the right Saturday for that technique will come what would I have done?
