T.P.A Group Challenge: 30. Match your outfit

Hello ladies

Sorry for being late with this mani (the challenge time was yesterday), I have some time management issues and one of my nails broke, had to file them off. But here is my mani for this theme, I have chosen a dress from Pinterest (I found no link to it) and tried to match my nails to it. I hope you like it.


The products I used.






La multi ani tuturor care au nume de floare!

Retro nails with MoYou London

As I promised in my last post I will show you a fantastic place called Dragons Garden. But first my mani.



I used for this design: GOSH - 550 Purple Heart, which is a duo-chrome polish. When you look at the polish directly, you see purple, but on the edges, it's a very dark grey-green. It doesn't look anywhere near as impressive as it does in the bottle though. The duo-chrome shows up best in lower lighting. I combined it with the metallic silver toned polish from Nails Inc. Soho Silver and I stamped it with my beloved MoYou London, Time Traveller Plate - Back to the 70's.







And now about the Dragons Garden, it is a Natural Reserve located in Gâlgău Almaşului (Sălaj County Transylvania). It is a protected reserve that covers almost three hectares, a unique place that impresses by the shape of the complex rock founded here. These rocks are the result of a wide destructive sliding and erosion process of the sandstones and they gather in odd forms. All these strange rock formations are having names like: Captain and Soldiers, The Dragon and the Dragon Lady and so on. It is a very interesting place, if you visit it take a good hiking shoe with you!








I live you with my retro nails! And if you liked the stamping pattern just look up for the plate at MoYouLondon. I am sure you will find something special!

Spring nails and a wonderful road trip

Today's post will be a little bit different because I will include some information's and pictures from a wonderful Botanical Garden that I visited with my family at the weekend. So I warn you this post is picture heavy!

But first I will show you my manicure that I've created with these wonderful flower blossom water decals combined with a dark and mysterious color by Leighton Denny - No Comment. This polish has a deep plum undertone, superb depth and electrifying shimmer. It is an autumn, winter color but combined with these decals I found it glamorous and elegant and appropriate for spring too!






The Jibou Botanical Garden Vasile Fati is located in Salaj county Transylvania, 1 hour distance from my city, Cluj-Napoca. It has a surface of 25 acres and has been arranged round the Wesselényi Castle, that was build in 1779 by count Wessélenyi Miklós. Unfortunately the castle it is unused and can not be visited, but the place and the garden it is magical. This castle is the biggest baroque structure in Romania.

In 1970 the place, it became an independent facility as an education and research area for biologists and an area for the public.





The garden has greenhouses, an aquarium, a zoological park and a beautiful Japanese garden. The greenhouses have a lot of tropical and subtropical plants, all sort of orchids and cactus's too. The dome called 'AQUARIUM' accommodates all sort of fish species in 23 small and big aquariums. This beautiful place has also a zoological park with deers, does, boars and an aviary.










In the way home we stooped at a natural reserve called Dragons Garden, but the pictures from there I will show you in my next post. I will leave you with my mani and thank you for stopping by!

Essence - Special Effect Topper - Glorious Aquarius

Today I am going to show you the most beautiful special effect topper from Essence. I feel in love instantly when the lovely Mihaela (www.lacquerbuzz.com), gifted me with this beauty. I can not thank her enough. 

Glorious Aquarius is a clear base polish with turquoise and silver hexagonal and fine glitter. I applied a black base from Gabrini and put on the tips the 3D special effect topper. The different sized glitters don't feel rough after drying and it does not create bumps and has a great shinny finish.





I was curious how it will look with a matte finish so I added the Rimmel top coat. It is something very special about matte glitters, though I love the shinny effect too but matte shows the individual glitters better.
There's just something awesome about matte glitters! I liked them shiny as well though, but this shows the individual glitters better. - See more at: http://www.ooohshinies.com/2013/10/the-previous-mani-but-now-mattified.html#sthash.16tvTyfG.dpuf
