As I announced on Facebook, I extracted the winners on December 18th at 18.00. There were 104 subscriptions. Of course, we had again some adventure, the second winner I extracted was not eligible, cause she didn,t Like the FB pages of Glossy Lala and Laqa&Co. So I had to chose another winner from 103 participants, cause I took out from the list the eligible winner.
Another adventure is that our sponsorLaqa&Codidn,t respond yet to our emails and our FB messages, so I am asking the winners to have a little patience. I will keep you post it.
I decided to publish the name of the winners, cause I saw on their FB pages that they Liked Glossy Lala and Laqa&Co and also they met all the other contest rules. I will send you an email but you will have 48 hours to send me the contact info, otherwise I will extract someone else.
So, CONGRATULATIONS to both winners!!! Buda Dana and Marianna Bennici.
Don`t be sad if you didn`t win, we`ll have many more attractive contests on the blog. I am waiting you to write me, cause I love your comments.
I used a new and easy method in making those nails. I applied 2 layers of white polish from L`Oreal and over them I applied a layer of dark blue nail polish also from L`Oreal. I didn`t wait to dry and immediately I formed a little ball from plastic wrap (see photo below) and I roll it over the nail for forming various designs. It is a very fast method, the designs are great and they look a lot like Water Marble, but without any mess:) In the end I applied a transparent top coat for shininess, although the nail polishes from the new L`Oreal collection are already very shinny, but because I played a lot with them, I had to apply extra coat:)
You can also apply the polish directly to the plastic wrap and then dab it over the nail if it`s easier for you.
I hope you like it and if you will try it, please show me your model:) You can make any color combination.
I am in the blue period now and you will see from now on many posts with this color:) This makeup is made with the Sleek Bad Girl Palette, its review you can find it here. I just love this palette, mostly that I am a big fan of Smokey Eyes. The dark blue shades are great for this winter period. I have a feeling I will use them a lot:)
Hope you will like it!
What you think of the Sleek Palettes? I am waiting to write me.
This is the palette I use a lot in this period and it is one of my favorites. I have it from some time now but I couldn`t make its review so far:)
I love the dark colors and smokey eyes so it`s perfect for me. I like very much the dark blues from this palette, but also the shades of purple and grey. The white from this palette is the only one from Sleek palettes I can use it as a highlighter, cause all the others were too pale or too dusty and I couldn`t apply them.
Like all the Sleek palettes, the colors are very pigmented and they resist for a long time.
Bag Girl Palette contains also shimmery and matte shades. I love the name of the colors: Innocence, Gullible, Blade, Gun Metal, Underground, Noir, Intoxicated, Envy, Obnoxious, Abyss, Twilight, Rebel.
Do you have this palette? What`s your opinion about it? I am waiting to write me:)
It is very hard to find the perfect tweezers, I`ve tried many of them so far but majority were disappointing.
Beauty Stop Online sent me for testing the Tweezerman Slant Tweezer Midnight Sky. It is a "Best Beauty" winner chosen by Allure editors for 9 years and is the top choice of make-up artists and beauty professionals for over 25 years. It`s by far the finest tweezer ever produced.
It is perfectly aligned, with diagonal ends, made of stainless steel with a durable enamel color finish. The slanted tips effectively grab every hair, every time with the smoothest, true precision.
It is guaranteed for life, because the ends can be sharpened any time is needed.
Be careful not to drop it, because this will dull the tip and throw tweezers out of alignment. Clean it after each use. If you want to increase spring tension of your tweezers you can gently pull the two halves of the tweezers slightly apart, but once yu increased the tension, there is no way decrease it.
It is a really good investment cause it lasts for life and it worth the money.
