New matte circle glitter review and design




Hello everyone!

Recently I participated in a product suggestion event held by Daisy from  www.bornprettystore.com and I suggested they added in the store some neon matte circle glitter, cause it's really hard to find outside etsy and rakuten. To my surprise they put out this amazing product almost imediately! I was thrilled and I got my own jar now to share with you all.


I loveeeeeeee it. Words cannot describe how much I adore this product. It's so cute and easy to use. If they put out black ones too I'm never using the dotting tool ever again lol.



The glitter shows a little bit of the color under it if it's dark. It's neon over white colors. The sheets are super thin, so they curve imediately to the natural curve of your nail.

The jar is 6g and it has mixed colors of glitter of 1mm and 2mm.

Once put over top coat you won't be able to slide it around and adjust its position unless it's on UV topcoat. It sticks to it imediately.

I have no idea if it's solvent resistant and if you'd be able to use it for franken polishes, but with clear acrylic it works fine.

By the time I received this, other colors became available, so head over to their site (or click the banner on the side bar) and check them out. I'm sure they have something you'll like.

Now about this design. It was super easy to do.

I used some no brand gold shimmer polish I found in my stash as base color.

 I used a black polish from LA colors Art Deco to paint the area where the glitter goes. In my video I used my non dominant hand, so sorry for the mess. If you have trouble you can always use a flat (gel) brush with acetone to clean up around the cuticles.

I put the glitter on my nails over wet top coat and then sealed it with another layer.

I used a matte top coat from BPS over the gold polish to fade the shimmer and make those vibrant colors kick.

The video is not the best, but it shows step by step what I did.

I hope you enjoyed it and if you like this glitter as much as me have fun with it!

Thank you for stopping by!

Under the sea




Hi everyone!

Today I'll be showing you a very simple manicure that I'm still wearing now cause I love it so much.

The center piece of this mani are the shell shaped metal studs from born pretty store. You can find them here for $2.79 in packs of 20 pcs of 3/5mm in gold and silver.


Use code DILIC10 for 10% discount and free shipping.

I started with 2 coats of Broadway Nails- Aquarius on 8 nails and 1 coat of Pure Ice- Strapless over black polish for my accent nails.

I painted the water bubbles with acrylic paint using a small detail brush.

You can find the paints I used here

I have an old tutorial on how to paint the bubbles from my previous little mermaid inspired nail art . Click the link for step by step pictures.


I sealed the paint in one layer of top coat and after it completely dried I stuck the shells at the base of my nails with a little top coat. They are completely reusable as long as they're not sealed, which is a plus considering they're only 20 in a pack.

I find this design adorable and practical as well. The 3D studs don't catch on anything and they're not too raised on the nail.

It's perfect for summer and seems to be trending, if you care about trends. I personally don't.

The shell studs have been provided for review by Daisy from www.bornprettystore.com

Black and white mani


Hey everyone!

Today I did Brenda's manicure again. She opted for something really classy.

I started with 2 coats of white polish from Broadway nails called "snow white".

Since I Cannot do french with polish at all I chose to do it with acrylic paint. For that I sealed the white with a layer of top coat and used a fine brush to create the french with black paint.

The paint has to dry completely. I applied 2mm clear rhinestones on the black tips for a bling effect.

To seal I used UV top coat and cured 2 minutes under 9w UV lamp.

Products were bought from bornprettystore and you can find them at the following links:

Hello kitty 40 years anniversary manicure



Hello everyone!

I'm a little late with this post..but hello kitty is celebrating her anniversary the whole year, so that's fine.

This was my anniversary manicure, really fun to do and easy. I love hello kitty, even if I'm 24 , I prefer to stay a big kid.

I don't have a video for this one, I tried making one, but my camera would not catch the hearts and the holo effect in any way, so I gave up on it.


Here are the polishes and materials I used. Click the links to see where you can get them.



Paint your nails white using a good white polish, preferably one that is opaque after 1 coat so you avoid building up polsih.

Paint 2 layers of a sheer silver holographic polish



After the polish dries completely, stamp a full pattern of hearts on all nails using white french polish. I used one from wet n wild.



Draw the hello kitty bows with red acrylic paint.



Outline the bows with black acrylic paint using a fine nail art brush.



On the accent nail you can use stickers or decals with hello kitty. Mine are from BPS but I dont think they sell them anymore. Add rhinestones in the middle of the bows.




Seal with top coat or gel top coat and voila!

Enjoy your super cute nails and wish hello kitty happy birthday!!

Thank you for stopping by! xoxo

Neutrogena Visibly even/ Healthy skin review

Hello everyone!

I waited quite a while to make this review for these 2 cleansers. I wanted to know 100% that they don't affect my skin in any way through a longer period of time. I've tested them for about 2 months, before I even decided to write a review for them.

I have part oily/part dry skin. It's a very problematic type of skin. My cheek bones and my nose, even my chin are very oily. My forehead and around my eyes I get dry skin that peels and flakes very easy. I get acnee from hell without anything significant happening to my face. I believe is stress related, but not many products help me. I've tried everything to make it go away and stay away.

My experience with Neutrogena cleansers started last year when I received a travel size sample of Visibly Bright cleanser. I loved it so much that I wanted to purchase a full size when I ran out, but couldn't find it at my local store anymore, so I decided to get the Visibly Even instead.

I read reviews on the product website page before even attempting to get it. The full size of 150ml is about 8 dollars, so I gave it a try.

I have red splotches all over my face and scars from acnee. This cleanser is actually a scrub. I had no idea at first. I'm seriously not friends with scrubs. I have the bad habit to get it in my eyes all the time. I started using it everyday, once a day, when I was showering. The results kinda amazed me. My red patches of skin started fading after few days. In about 10 days they were pretty much gone.




It came with a side effect as well. The dry skin on my face turned even drier. I was looking for something else to use with this cleanser. I didnt want an alternative since this one was making my spots go away. So I went back to the store and looked through their products and found Healthy Skin.

I have fine lines around my eyes, those stress related as well, and the smoking also doesn't help. The bottle says "anti wrinkle/ anti blemish" so I got it without even reading reviews.

I started using it togheter with Visibly Even. The consistency of this one is a white cream, almost jelly. It's a little hard to form a foam in your palms with it. I squeeze a drop of it on a  facial brush and gently massage it on the skin and around my eyes. I tend to insist with this cleanser in the areas where fine lines are more visible.



Using these 2 togheter made my acnee go away completely in about 2 weeks of everyday use once a day. I still got some scars on my forehead but they faded a lot already.

Overall Im super happy with the combination Im using right now. I probably wouldnt be able to constantly use Visibly Even by itself because of my very picky skin type, but it does what it says it will. Healthy Skin moisturisez my skin after I use Visibly Even, I think thats why this combination works so good for me.

No matter how good these work for me, as soon as I stop using them, my acnee returns with a vengeance. I tested not using them for about a week, and my acnee returned. As soon as I started using them again, my acnee started to fade.

It might not work for you or it might. After all we're all very different. But if you had other types of experience with any of these 2 cleansers or one of them, feel free to share it with me.

Thank you for stopping by!
