Getting Ready For Christmas #10: Christmas Party!

   Hello everyone!
   So... it's Christmas Eve! And this is my last Christmas themed manicure, Christmas Party!, from the one and only Getting Ready For Christmas challenge. 
   I feel proud of myself because I managed to complete this challenge, a thing I haven't done since last year's Halloween challenge, which I created. I'm glad Christmas is finally here, although there is no snow and I didn't quite get into the Christmas mood. I'm sad this challenge is over because I really enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. Thanks Elsa! :)
   Enjoy the pictures and have a nice Christmas!

Getting Ready For Christmas #6: Snowflakes Manicure

   Hello pretty girls!

   If you are interested, go here to see all the manicures I've done for this challenge :).
   I will (virtually) see you tomorrow. Until then, click on Read More, in order to see more pictures for today's topic.

Getting Ready For Christmas #9: Christmas Movie Inspired

   Hello ladies!
   Time for another Christmas themed manicure! The next topic from Elsa's challenge, Getting Ready For Christmas, I chose to do is the Christmas Movie Inspired one. 
   I chose Elf, which is a really funny Christmas movie you should definitely watch this year (or every year :) )!

Getting Ready For Christmas #8: The Christmas Red

   Hello ladies!
   Christmas is quickly approaching and there are only 3 manicures left for the Getting Ready For Christmas challenge. Today's theme is The Christmas Red
   I used Flormar Supershine U14, which is a glittery red nail polish I bought last year, sometime around Christmas. This is my perfect red shade for this holiday. I know that you can't see much glitter in those pictures. My camera could not catch all the details, but I really like it and I hope you will too. :)

Getting Ready For Christmas #7: All I Want For Christmas…

   Hello ladies!
   I'm a little late... I know. I didn't want to skip a day or mix the order of the topics in the Getting Ready For Christmas challenge, but, in the end, I had to because I didn't manage to make my snowflakes manicure, yet. If I had waited more, I wouldn't have had time to post the other ones I have done because there are just a few days left 'till Christmas. Therefore, today's post is about my Christmas wish list.

Getting Ready For Christmas #5: Blue and Silver

   Hello girls!
   Am I the only one who feels as if there were just a few days left until Christmas? lol
   Anyway, today I come to show you my 5th Christmas manicure: Blue and Silver. You can definitely see the blue, while the silver isn't that noticeable, I think, but I am totally in love with my new Flormar 392 nail polish that I just had to use it again! =D
   I hope you like it. I invite you to click on Read more in order to see all the pictures and to take a look at what theme comes next ;).

Getting Ready For Christmas #4: Red and Gold

   Hello pretty girls! :)
   I finally managed to pick up some photos, edit them and upload them to my blog, in order to post the 4th theme of the Getting Ready For Christmas challenge.
   For today's red and gold theme, I've decided to put some no-name gold glitter over a red base (Farmasi 48) and keep it simple.
   I hope you'll enjoy the pictures :).

Getting Ready For Christmas #3: Under The Mistletoe

   Hello everyone!
   Today, I'm posting the third themed manicure form Elsa's Getting Ready For Christmas challenge, which is called Under The Mistletoe. I didn't have to much time to come up with something better than this, even if I would've liked to make it more interesting.
   Well, I hope you'll enjoy it and I'll "see" you next time. :)

Getting Ready For Christmas #2: Glitter Overload!

   Hello pretty girls!
   The second day of the lovely Getting Ready For Christmas challenge is here. So today's topic was Glitter Overload, for which I mostly used my new Flormar nail polish (my absolute favourite nail polish ever!) because I was really excited to try it and I thought it fits the topic.
   I like the manicure I chose doing, but now, when I'm looking at the  photos I've taken, I don't think it's too Christmasy. I'm not sure if it's glittery enough, either... Also, I've added a little snowflake to make it more winter themed.
   What do you think?

Getting Ready For Christmas #1: Not Yet, But Almost!

   Holidays are coming! Holidays are coming!
   Well, hello everyone!
   So, today is the day I start a new challenge! It's been such a long time since I've done my last one... This challenge is a collaboration with other blogger girls, it's called Getting Ready For Christmas and was created by Elsa. I forgot to say it is AMAZING! I absolutely love it and I can't wait to do all the topics. :)
   It doesn't have exact dates when we all should post our nail designs, which I find great, since I'm always having trouble with finding some spare time. Everyone can post their designs whenever they want, as long as it's before Christmas (obviously). 
   If you are curious to see more pictures of my Not Yet, But Almost manicure, along with the names of the other topics, feel free to click on Read More. :)

NOTD: La mulţi ani România!

   În primul rând, la mulţi ani România! La mulţi ani tuturor românilor!
   Anul trecut nu am postat nimic cu această ocazie şi mi-a părut rău, aşa că anul ăsta m-am gândit că ar trebui să pregătesc o minichiură tematică, pentru că aşa ar fi frumos. :)

NOTD: KKCenterHK Stamping Plate

   Some time ago KKCenterHK sent me some pretty-pretty flowery water decals, which you can see here, and a stamping plate.
   It took me a little to long to post this because of all the thigs I had to do for school. 
   Anyway, the nail design is here now and I'm very pleased with how well this stamping plate works. In fact, all the KKCenterHK stamping plates I tried, were great.

Tag: The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger (RO)


   Hello ladies,

   Astăzi este vremea unui tag, pentru că nu am mai făcut unul de foarte mult timp. Nici nu-mi mai amintesc când l-am postat pe ultimul :)).
   Tag-ul l-am preluat de la  Dee

NOTD: Neutral with a bow

   Nothing too fancy for today, just some neutral nails and a black bow (done with this stamping plate) with a rhinestone to make it prettier.

NOTD: Flowers with Water Decals

   KKCenterHK had sent me these water decals some time ago and I've thought it was about time I'd post them on my blog. I think they are so pretty. I still have them on my nails and I don't plan on removing them too soon lol. 
   This was the first time I have ever used water decals so it was a bit tricky to apply them, but, in the end, it was ok.

NOTD: Purple Leopard

   Hello ladies,

   I don't remember posting too many animal print nail designs, but I must admit I'm crazy about leopard print!
   I've done this manicure at the same time I've done the swatch to Essence Colour & Go 132 Break Through (link), which makes it a pretty old one lol. I had to take advantage of that swatch and turn into a cute design.
   I really like how it turned out. It's easy to make and eye-catching, at the same time.

NOTD: Striped french

   Well, hello darlings!
   For today's nail design, I thought I should post a striped french. This is actually the manicure I wore at my cousins wedding in August. I know, I know. It took me so much time to post it because I was to lazy to organise my photos, files, whatever. I'll try to keep up from now on. 
   I would also like to adopt an idea from a blogger I follow. She posts a french manicure every Friday. I'm not sure I can make it happen, but I might just give it a try and see what happens. :)
   Until next time, make sure you go see the other picstures.

Swatch: Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 112

   This is the second time I post a swatch of this nail polish. The first time was in the summer, but at that time I really had to post it for a collab and, unfortunately, I couldn't upload pictures from my camera, so I used my mobile phone and those weren't great quality.
   I believe I had to put up some pics where you can see the real beauty of this glitter polish. It's definitely my favourite from the three Jolly Jewels nail polishes I own (115, 102, 112(this one)).
   Click on Read more for all the pictures. :)

NOTD: Halloween 2013

   This is the nail design I'll be wearing this year for Halloween. I wish I had done more nail designs on this theme, but I didn't have enough time, so I only did 3: this one, the Voodoo Doll (with tutorial here) and The Bride of Frankenstein
   I hope you liked those, even though they weren't many.

Halloween: Voodoo Doll Nails Video Tutorial

   Here's a tutorial to my voodoo doll nails, which you can see here. I can't even remember when was the last time I have done one. I really hope you like it :).

Halloween: Voodoo Nails

   So it's Halloween again! Even though we don't really celebrate it in Romania, I've always liked this holiday. 
   It was obvious I'd do something for this year's Halloween and this is only the first post. Unfortunately, I wasn't as organised as last year when I did 7 halloween nail designs, which you can see here. I had a lot of ideas in both, nail art and makeup, for this year, but I didn't have enough time to do them. 
   This year I've been thinking about posting some halloween makeup, but I'm not sure yet if I'm going to, since I'm no makeup genius and I don't want to horify you. We'll see...

   Iată că a sosit şi Halloweenul! Păi puteam eu să nu fac nimic? Păi nu!
   Îmi pare rău că anul ăsta nu am reuşit să mă organizez aşa cum trebuie. Anul trecut am reuşit să fac 7 modele pe care le puteţi vedea aici. Am vrut să fac o groază de chestii acum, dar nu am mai avut suficient timp.
  Anul ăsta mi-am propus să mă joc şi cu machiajul de halloween dar nu sunt sigură că vreau să-mi vadă toată lumea „capodoperele” :)).

Review: Gerovital H3 Evolution - Cremă lift hidratantă de zi, cu SPF 15

   Crema a fost primita spre testare, de la Farmec. La fel ca în cazul gelului, am folosit-o o lună întreagă înainte de a mă apuca să scriu acest review.

Review: Gel anticearcăn Aslavital Mineralactiv

   În urmă cu ceva timp am primit spre testare două produse de la Farmec: gelul anticearcăn si crema lift hidratantă de zi. A sosit şi ziua review-ului acesta. Am tot amânat postarea lui şi am cam întârziat; ştiu asta şi-mi pare rău. Gelul l-am folosit timp de o lună conform indicaţiilor înainte de a vă spune părerea mea.

NOTD: Studs and a Neon Gradient

   În postarea de astăzi, pe lângă manichiura în sine, care mie mi-a plăcut tare mult, vreau să scot în evidenţă capsele pe care le-am primit de la KKCenterHK.
   In today's post, aside from the mani, which I really liked, I want to show you the nail studs I got from KKCenter HK.

Review: Keratina lichidă Anian


   Hello ladies,

   A venit şi ziua în care postez review-ul keratinei lichide de la Anian, pe care am testat-o timp de o lună. Nu cred că produsul mai are nevoie de prezentare. Presupun că toată lumea a auzit până acum de keratina lichidă şi de beneficiile acesteia pentru păr.
   De mult timp îmi doream să încerc acest produs şi până la urmă, iată că mi-a picat în mânuţe. Mulţumesc celor de la Triodeluxe pentru această şansă.
   Şi voi puteţi câştiga o keratină lichidă, plus o mască regeneratoare de la Anian, dacă participaţi la giveaway-ul meu, aiciGrăbiţi-vă totuşi! Mai puteţi să vă înscrieţi doar azi şi mâine până la ora 00:00.

NOTD: Sunset

   A trecut ceva timp de la ultimul NOTD postat şi m-am gândit că ar cam fi cazul să mai revin şi cu astfel de postări.
   Modelul nu e fascinant, nu e dificil, e doar o improvizaţie ce s-a vrut a fi, la momentul respectiv, un gradient. Rezultatul final pe mine m-a dus cu gândul la un apus de soare. O fi, n-o fi apus de soare, nici nu mai contează :)). 
   Manichiura e făcută vara asta (deci stă de ceva timp prin calculator în aşteptarea editărilor) şi sper să vă ofere o mică senzaţie de căldură, în contrast cu vremea asta capricioasă.

Movie Of The Week #3: Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

   În săptămâna 3, renunţ la filmele, să zicem, siropoase, pentru o porţie de luptă împotriva vrăjitoarelor. 
   Filmul l-am văzut în timpul verii şi vă spun că mi-a plăcut teribil de mult. Din punctul meu de vedere este realizat super! Toate elementele se combină perfect şi se completează reciproc pentru a crea ceea ce, eu îndrăznesc să numesc, un film bun (dar nu cel mai bun!). Personajele sunt plăcute, scenele de luptă spectaculoase, iar muzica completează perfect atmosfera.

Review: Pudră Compactă Happy Face de la Farmasi

   Pudra am cumpărat-o pe la începutul verii când, datorită căldurii, tenul meu era mult prea lucios. Până în momentul acela nu am mai folosit nicio altă pudră, deci nu o pot compara cu niciun alt produs. Nu a făcut mari minuni, dar a fost ok. Acum, neavând experienţă cu astfel de produse nu ştiu ce aşteptări ar fi trebuit să am.
   M-a tentat deoarece am fost foarte mulţumită de fondul de ten Stay Matte şi de corectorul lichid (pe care l-am ales într-o nuanţă muuult prea deschisă) de la Farmasi şi pentru că am încredere în produsele acestei firme.

Movie Of The Week #2: Tres Metros Sobre El Cielo 2: Tengo ganas de ti

   Se pare că am reuşi să scriu şi săptămâna asta despre un film, deşi am întârziat o zi :)). M-am gândit că dacă săptămâna trecută v-am vorbit despre Tres Metros Sobre El Cielo, săptămâna asta să vă zic două vorbe despre partea a doua.
