>A week ago I ordered my sample pack from VivaLaNails.co.uk. They offer free sample packs for beauty/nail art blogs and channels, and shipping is also free. The order was processed incredibly fast, I got the package within 4 days.
My package consisted of stickers, water decals, crushed shells, rhinestones, glitters, pearls and dazzlings.


(Crushed shells are not pictured here)

Today I tried some of the products and did a fun manicure. I used pink star dazzlings, dark blue rhinestones and butterfly stickers.


I used Pastel #23 (Pastel is a Turkish brand) on all fingers, except ring fingers, which I painted with Rimmel Your Majesty. Then I stamped on top of the blue with Your Majesty and the halftone image from plate m60. I added some pink star dazzlings randomly, and applied butterfly stickers and dark blue rhinestones on ring fingers.




Right hand:


I really like the variety and quality of the products. The only thing that bothered me is that when applying topcoat over dazzlings, their color bleeds out. And without topcoat they get caught by everything. My solution was adding topcoat very quickly, just like over Konad.
I definitely want to order various rhinestones, pearls and stickers from their site in the future. Although I love dazzlings, I don’t think they’re easy to manage. Their round and hexagonal glitters are beautiful, too, and yet to be shown in the second part of this review.

Bir hafta önce, VivaLaNails.co.uk‘den deneme seti ısmarladım. Güzellik/tırnak ile ilgili bloglara ya da youtube kanallarına ücretsiz deneme setleri gönderiyorlar, ve kargo da ücretsiz. Siparişim hemen gönderildi ve 4 gün içinde teslim aldım.
Bana gönderdikleri set; çıkartmalar, suyla uygulanan süsler, deniz kabuğu kırıkları, taşlar, simler, inciler ve pırıltılı süslemelerden oluşuyordu.
Bugün bazı ürünleri denedim ve eğlenceli bir manikür yaptım. Pembe yıldızlar, taşlar ve kelebek çıkartmaları kullandım.
Baz olarak Pastel #23 sürdüm, sadece yüzük parmaklarımın tırnağında Rimmel Your Majesty kullandım. Sonra lacivertlerin üzerine m60 diski ve Your Majesty kullanarak damga yaptım. Aralara pembe yıldızlar yapıştırdım ve yüzük parmaklarımda kelebek çıkartmaları ve koyu mavi taşlar kullandım.
Ürünlerin çeşitliliğini ve kalitesini beğendim. Tek rahatsız eden şey pembe yıldızların üzerine cila sürdüğümde renklerinin cilayla beraber dağılması oldu. Cilasız ise tırnakta bir yere takılmadan durmaları imkansız. Çözümü cilayı çok hızlı ve fazla sürüklemeden sürmekte buldum.
İleride sitelerinden başka tırnak süsleri de almak istiyorum. Özellikle pembe yıldız süsleri çok sevdiğim halde, başetmesinin biraz zor olduğunu düşünüyorum. Yuvarlak ve altıgen simleri ise bir harika, onları bu tanıtımın ikinci kısmında görebileceksiniz.

>When mom first saw what Konad was and what I was doing to my nails, she thought I finally lost my marbles. =) But then she started to visit my room every sunday, to get her nails done! =D She says everybody’s asking her where she’s getting her nails done. She is not easily satisfied, and sometimes she claims that I do my own nails better than I do hers =) For example last week she wanted the same starry design as I did for New Year’s, in pink and blue. When I stamped her nails with repeated stars, she said I had aligned my stars better. For some reason I couldn’t be as precise as I am with my own nails… I guess practise makes it perfect. But most of the time she is happy with my work. I let her pick the design she wants, and suggest a color to stamp it with. This week she painted her nails with Rimmel Funky Diva. She picked the vine design from m73, and I stamped it using konad special polish in pastel pink. The pictures are with flash, because she is not as patient as I am =D She wiggles with her fingers like a small child! LOL



You can expect more mom nails in the future =)
Oh, and her nails break so easily, she recently started treating them after seeing my obsession with my nails, but she’s more active with her hands and didn’t really know how to protect them till recently. She is allergic to strange stuff and in summer her nails break severely. I’m still thinking about a solution.

>Today, my thumb nail broke painfully. It was really nice and long, and I was keeping my tips very strong with Mavala Scientifique, but it had a tear on one side, and when it got stuck while opening a box, it ripped painfully. Now I have it very very short.

PhotobucketI filed all my nails down, and I hope they finally grow out without tearing on the sides this time. They always say thumbnails grow the slowest, but it doesn’t seem to be the case with me, luckily. And my fastest growing nails are my ring fingers.
Anyway, I was kinda unwilling to do a manicure, but I did it anyway, because bare nails are the weakest. The base is Rimmel Your Majesty, and I stamped it with Konad special polish in red, and zebra pattern of m57. The result: Funky Robo-Zebra!

The stamping was complete in 20 seconds. Can you believe that? It’s a personal record!
