Orange glitter nails

I did this cute and super easy nail manicure.

This is the products that I used.

Seche Vite's dry fast top coat (my lifesaver, a blog post coming up), China glaze's free love (a gorgeous shimmering orange shade) and Sephora's traffic stopper copper (powerful glitter shade).

First I applied two coats of the free love and then a coat of the traffic stopper copper. I finished up the design with the Seche vite top coat.

Cute, huh? The Sephora's traffic stopper is just awesome. With it you can spice up any shade and give your nail design little of that something something :)

New in from asos

I just got a package from asos that I ordered less than a week ago.

I got a really cute skirt and a funky t-shirt.

I just could not resist this colorful t-shirt. It's super cute and perfect summer. It is a little bit sheer so I have yo wear a top under it. I can wear it with green and black skirts.

Can be found here.

I also got this mint green long skirt. Has anyone else noticed my obsession with mint green skirts? :D

The skirt can be found here. The best part... it's on sale!!!

Easy Caviar Manicure

Few weeks ago I got the Ciaté Caviar Manicure set from Sephora.

I got the white version which is called the mother of pearls.


You can also get it in Rainbow and Black Pearls.

The set comes with one nail polish, small nail beads, a small funnel and a plastic case to collect all the beads in. It also comes with a full set of instructions so it is really easy to use.

Something that I really like about Ciaté is the super cute nail polish bottles. Those little bows are just so adorable.

Now here is the result of my Ciaté manicure.

And here is how I did it.

1. Prepare your nails

As a base coat I used Orly's Nail Defense and treated my cuticles with Nail Trek cuticle oil.

2. Apply two coats of the Ciaté nails polish

Now, the instructions only tell you to apply nail polish but to make the manicure last longer I added a top coat as well.

I used the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat which I think is the best top coat around.

3. Quickly apply the beads before the nail polish dries off

This is where the plastic case comes into use. I mean it can be really messy when adding the beads. Those suckers just like to jump around.

Just place your finger over the plastic case, drizzle the beads on top of your nail and press them gently in. Do not press too much.

When you're done just simply put the nozzle on the nail polish bottle and pour all the fall out beads back to the bottle.

And there you go. Super easy and quick manicure.

Now, the manicure in itself does not last for very long (two or three days), especially if you did not use any top coat to really glue the beads on. But it is super cute, easy and quick manicure.

You can also do your own nail manicure set. Just use any nail polish that you have and mini beads from arts and crafts store. However, bare in mind that the beads are not meant to be used as nail decorations so they might have some toxicants in them which are not necessarily good for you.

What do you think? Have you tried the caviar manicure?

Mini make-up haul

Yesterday I did a small make-up haul. I got two nail polish and a face shimmering cream.

I got the Viva la Diva nails polish in mint green and Mavala nails polish in blue mint. I cannot wait to try these out. The colors are super cute and perfect for summer.

I also go the Lumene sun radiance skin tone perfector in honey glow.

You can mix it up with your foundation or just spread it on your face without anything else. It gives you that lovely summer glow and shine.

This is how it looks like on your skin.

When its spread, it gives you a nice sun kissed glow. Perfect for evening outs, days at the beach or for overall hanging out :)

Coastal Scents: 252 Ultimate Palette

Coastal Scents just launched their new eyeshadow palette called the 252 Ultimate Palette.

The palette has 252 different lushious colors variating from matte to super shimmer.

The palette can be found here.

I think the colors look wonderful and the fact that it has such a huge variety of colors makes it a definitely a good purchase. You can do so many different looks with this palette. My problem is that I already have the 88 original and shimmer palette, so I do not know if I actually have any need or use for this palette since it seems to have a lot of the colors I already have. 

If you have not heard about Coastal Scents before go and check out their site. They have some really cheap and quality palettes and other make-up as well, including brushes. They deliver all around the world and the shipping costs are not that bad either. I have purchased make up from their website many times, so I can assure you it's perfectly safe. You can pay with paypal or credit card.

This promo video makes me want to buy the palette....

I love Hannah Hart's my drunk kitchen videos. She is super funny and super talented. Anyone who has not had the pleasure of watching these videos, basically it's all about Hannah cooking and getting drunk :D

Check out this video where Hannah cooks with Shane Dawson. I mean these two are just absolutely hilarious.

Quick Update: Forget Your Boyfriend

I got these shoes a while ago from Nelly. They are called Forget Your Boyfriend and they are absolutely fantastic. Perfect for a night out or to spice up your outfit :)

The heel is 14 cm and the platform is 3 cm. So they are not that massive but if you're not used to walking with high heels you definitely need some practice. Best practice is just to put the shoes on and go out and look fabulous ;)

Forget Your Boyfriends can be found here. They can be found in blue, black, red and taupe. They seem to be on sale right now. However it confuses me, since I got these babies for the sale price ages ago...

What do you think?

My newesr shoe obsession is...

Nelly Fabulous shoes!! They have a whopping 16 cm heel and 5 cm platform! Which makes them almost impossible to walk with.. But do you actually need to walk with them. Isn't it enough if you just stand there and look pretty :D

 Can be found here

What do you think? Hot or not?

Addicted to Dior

One of my favorite lipsticks is Christian Dior Addict Lipstick. The reason I got it in the first place was due to the gorgeous promo pictures by Kate Moss.

She just looks amazing. The lipstick looks gorgeous on her. Well, actually I think, it's Kate Moss that makes the lipstick gorgeous :)

Dior has launched a never version of the lipstick. 

The case is just super cute, feminine and luxurious. When you take it out from your make-up bag you instantly feel gorgeous and maybe just a little bit more special :)

Hehe, awkward with the fingerprints...

I have it in shade 578 Dior Kiss which is a cute pink shade.

The reason why I love this lipstick is not just because Kate Moss is wearing it on the add :D But that it's actually a really good quality lipstick. It is soft, light to wear and it spreads like a dream on your lips. It just feels heavenly. 

Most importantly, it does not taste disgusting. This is a very important factor on lipsticks. I mean, no one really eats their lipstick on purpose (or at least they really should not) but it's a well know fact that you end up eating a lot of lipstick during your lifetime. Yes, it is a disgusting fact and very unhealthy but at least... hell, if I end up being victimized by the beauty industry and my life span is diminished due to eating lipstick at least make it not taste like crap! Sorry, my random rant :D

Now, the price is a bit more than on an average "drug store brand". But yet again, lipstick is something you should treat yourself with. It's the casing on this Dior lipstick that gives it a little bit more something special. I have not had the chance to try the never version of it but if anyone has, what do you think?
