p2 Summer Attack Green Palm Tree

Hello my lovelies! It's Wednesday again so it's time for another untried. This week's theme was "ugliest" and even though I don't think any of the polishes in my collection are ugly, there are some that could be considered a little less pretty by some people. These are usually shades of lime green or something similar. I had the perfect thing to show you today.

Monday Blues: Jessica Surfer Boyz 'n Berry

Hello my lovelies! I'm still in Germany so this is a scheduled post. I couldn't miss the Monday Blues of this week because I haven't missed one ever since I started, over a year ago. So today I have a lovely Jessica polish to show you. I was actually in doubt if I should post this one as a Monday Blue because it's somewhere on the border between blue and green. But a lot of people have named it blue so I'm gonna do the same.

Born Pretty Store Nail Skulls Review

Hello lovelies! When you'll be reading this, I will be in Germany. I have a few posts scheduled for the next week and I hope everything goes well with them. Today I want to show you something really cool. I think most of you are familiar with certain brands that sell sets with skulls and other 3D shapes to bling up your nails. They usually don't come cheap but luckily the Born Pretty Store now has these nail art accessories for a fraction of the price.

Nails Inc Sloane Gardens

Hello my lovelies! How are you all doing today? I'm leaving for Germany tomorrow so I will be away from the blog for a while. But I have prepared a few scheduled posts so I won't be missing any challenges during the next week. The theme for today's untried post was "most expensive", so I finally used the last Nails Inc polish from the blue set I got last year. These polishes retail for £11 in Europe, so technically this was my most expensive untried, even though I didn't pay full price for it.

Monday Blues: Born Pretty Store Blue Studs Review

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and that means I have some blue nails for you. You all know how much I love blue polish and how much I love studs. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that the Born Pretty Store now carries bright colored studs. I immediately had to try these blue ones that they kindly sent for review.

Orly Fancy Fuchsia

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! The sun is shining and it's very hot outside, yet I'm stuck in the city. I just wish I would be on a beach somewhere. At least the manicure I'm showing you today is perfect for summer. It's a color I don't often wear, but when I do it's usually in the summer.

My top 20 nail polishes

Hello lovelies! Today I have a fun post for you. Some of my fellow Romanian bloggers had the great idea of doing a post showing our favorite nail polishes of all time. Of course I had to join in, but it was very hard to choose 20 when I own about 350 polishes. My ultimate argument in favor of a certain polish was how many times I've used it and how versatile it is. That's why I preferred choosing more cremes and glitters instead of holos and textured polishes, just because I use those more.

Golden Stripes

Hello my lovelies! Just a quick post today to show you a manicure I did a while back and didn't have time to show you. I think by now you all know how much I like tape manicures. I've seen this type of design around and there's also a Konad stamp that has a similar pattern, so I decided to recreate it using my trusty striping tape.

Gabrini 3D 58

Hello my lovelies! Wednesday means another untried and this week we had to use our cheapest one, so I'm gonna show you a polish that I picked up for less than one buck. It comes from the brand Gabrini and it's blue. Yay for a double dose of blue this week!

Monday Blues: Shimmer Polish Jennifer

Hello my lovelies! I really hope this Monday is being kind to you. It's supposed to be rainy over here so I'm probably going to stay in an proofread my thesis. Even if you're at work or at school maybe, I have some gorgeous glitter to cheer you up today. Are you ready?

Purple Paisley

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! Today's post is all about nail art. I try to do at least one of these a week to keep you entertained. But the truth is that I've been really uninspired lately and I've only worn glitter manicures for the last week. Luckily, I still have some older photos to show you from when I was too busy with exams. This particular manicure has been very much enjoyed by me so I hope you will like it too.

Kiko Holographic 400

Hello lovelies! How is everyone doing today? This week I've been working on my thesis and I'm so happy that it's almost finished. I can't wait for a few weeks of relaxation because these last months have been crazy. It's Friday so naturally I will be showing you something fun. I know the holographic collection from Kiko is long discontinued and I didn't want to post these swatches so you could hate me for it, but the polish was so beautiful that I just couldn't help myself. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures and won't be too mad at me.

Sation Oh My Oceania

Hello my lovelies! This week's untried polish had to be the newest in our collection, and since I recently received an order of 6 polishes from, I could use whichever I wanted because technically they are all my newest untrieds. I've already showed you Essie In The Cab-ana on Monday, so I went for the most interesting of the 3 Sation polishes I picked up.

Monday Blues: Essie In The Cab-ana

Hello my lovelies! Today is my first Monday as a med school graduate. To celebrate I have a really gorgeous aqua blue to show you. I must confess that I'm not too crazy about the names of the latest Essie polishes and this one is no exception. But I'm really glad I ordered it because it's an incredible color.

Red Roses

Hello my lovelies! The title of today's post is very straightforward. I recently got some beautiful red roses as a gift and since they can't be preserved forever I thought I would paint them on my nails as well. Of course the nails don't last either, but now I have these pictures as a memory. I don't usually use props for my pictures but this time I did my best to photograph the actual roses together with my nails. First let's take a look at the nail art.

Revlon Radiant

Hello my lovelies! It's Wednesday so as usual I am showing you an untried. For today's challenge we had to use our oldest untried and for me it's a blue glitter from Revlon. The reason this remained in my untrieds for so long is a mistery. I definitely needed to try this blue glitter a long time ago.

June favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! The June favorites and haul post is a little later than usual, but I'm happy to announce that I'm done with my 6th year med school exams. Which means that I technically graduated and my ceremony is on Saturday. This month has been crazy busy and I hardly posted anything in the last weeks. So the favorites I'm showing you are mostly from the beginning of the month.

Monday Blues: Inglot 992

Hello my lovelies! Sorry I've been absent again. This week has been very busy with studying for my last med school exam that is tomorrow. I know I promised to post more but I just couldn't find the time and state of mind to write something up. Needless to say that nail pictures are piling up so I have a lot to show you. I will have my graduation on Saturday and hopefully things will slow down after that. Of course no matter how busy I may be, I always find time for Monday Blues. Today's beauty is another polish that is hard to photograph but I did my best.
