Maybelline - The Colossal Big Shot

As you may noticed in the title, I am going to have a mixed post today. I have a nail art and besides that I tested the new Maybelline - The Colossal Big Shot mascara that I have received for review.

I have to say that I am always seeking mascaras that lengthen my lashes and this is why I was super anxious and curious to see if this new product will work for me. As you will see in the pictures the packaging of this product is bright and gold that certainly will caught your attention in any store. 

The size of the wand is medium and holds the perfect amount of formula needed for the lashes. The color of it is dark black and fully coats the lashes in a few moves. The most impressive thing was that my lashes were not full with clumps, they were fluttery and looked natural. So, if you need a mascara that does not overwhelm your lashes and it lengthens them, The Colossal Big Shot is for you! 







And now my nail art. I didn't made for such a long time matte nails and looking through my stash saw this pretty Golden Rose nail polish that was almost forgotten and used at least once. So I had to apply it to my nails and I combined it with a P2 glitter bomb. I like how my nails turned out.




I hope you liked my mixed post and just tell me if you already have the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot mascara and what is your opinion about it. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Sand nail powder review

Today I want to show you a very nice nail art product. I am talking about a pastel multicolored sand powder that can be used with classic nail polishes and even with UV nail products too. It is from the Born Pretty Store site and besides this multicolored one you will find 3 other colored ones too, HERE

I used the powder as an accent nail in my manicure and added on a pink base with the help of a fan brush, before it dried completely. The effect of the powder came out matte with a lovely sparkle and has a very fine texture. At the Born Pretty Store site, in the description of the product it is mentioned that it can be sealed with a top coat, but I tried it and I didn't liked the effect of it. I prefer it textured. 






I tried it on a UV soak-off gel polish too and it looks better when it is used before curing and not after it. So, use this powder after you apply a color base (cure it), than apply one layer of top coat and place the sand powder on it and than cure it. For the textured effect don't use any top coat again. 


I hope you like this product as I do, it comes in a small 10 ml box and if you use it carefully than it last for several manicures. Check it out HERE and if you buy any products from the site use my bellow seen discount code.

Water-marble stamping plate

Hello ladies. I don't know how much of you like water-marble nails but the technique makes you problems or you don't like the mess that comes with it. I am one of them and this is why I found the perfect plate that imitates the water-marble effect. The plate is form the Born Pretty Store and you can find it HERE

I made two manicures with it and I am already anxious to make new ones because I simply love all the patterns on it. The plate works very good but I had some issues at my first mani. It was an extremely hot day when I made my nails and I didn't had the quickest moves to apply the pattern on them, the transfer was not as sharp as I wished and on top of everything I smudged it with the top coat :( At the second mani everything worked perfectly. 













I am super curious which mani you like better and if you own this magnificent plate or not? If you don't, just check it out on the Born Pretty Store site HERE because it is on SALE now! The blue stamping nail polish is from the same site and you can find it HERE. You're welcome to use my bellow seen discount code for any of your purchase.

Soak-off gel nails

From about two years ago I made a manicure-pedicure school and after graduation I started to do nails for friends and acquaintances. I usually share my work on my personal FB page but I decided to make a blog-post about it and show you a few of my designs. I usually say that it is a work in progress, I can't call myself a professional manicurist, but I can tell you that I enjoy spending time with people and doing their nails in my free time.




























The next one are gel nails:





I hope I didn't bored you with so much photos. These are just a few that I found in my FB feed and phone. Please fell free to comment bellow about my work and tell me what is your opinion about soak-off gel polishes and gel nails in general!
