caviar for nails

I`ve bought this caviar decoration in the closest drugstore, it was very cheap about 1 $ for each bottle. I was not thinking that this caviar will last long on my nails. But it stays much time without fall offs and deformation. You could choose any colour of your favourite nail polish, even if it not match perfectly the colour of the caviar. I`ve chosen a deep purple and pastel beige colours as a foundation for my decorations.

It was a real fun to create my caviar nails. These little balls look so gorgeous:) So to start I put two layers of my nail polish and then, before it will start to dry out I put my caviar. It`s better to help yourself with a fan bruss or to put the caviar directly from a bottle. Then, to set it to your nail, press it carefully, but don`t move the balls on a surface of the polish. Caviar covers the nail plate very accurately. You can also use your fan brush to sweep off extra decoration.

To make the caviar on your nails stay longer you could put a layer of a clear nailpolish, but I really think it`s not necessary. If decoration will fall off in some places, just add a drop of nail polish in that area and fill with caviar again.

My Nail Care Routine

nail care, manicure,

Hi sweeties! I always had a very strong and good nails, they rarely exfoliate or brake down. I wish my hair was so nice as my nails. I always use glass nail file, it is the best variant for natural nails. It doesn`t destroy the nail plate and makes the edges smooth.

The first secret of my strong nails I`ve learned from my mother. It is iodine 5 % (that thing from pharmacy). I apply it on my cuticle with help of cotton swab. Don`t worry, it is easily removable with warm water and soap. It really makes your nails grow stronger and healthier. You could substitute this method with sea salt bath for your nails.

The second recipe is lemon juice with olive oil. It smells sooo gorgeous! It is also a good whitening for your nails. To make your nails look even more white clean them with tooth brush and tooth paste. It also works very well.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Hell (light) with Matte Effect


Some time time ago I`ve bought two B.B. creams by Garnier, so I want to do a review for both and to share my thoughts with you. Hope you`ll find it useful . Let's start:

1. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One B.B Light, SPF 15.
2. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Hell (light) with Matte Effect, SPF 20.

Package:

1. Daily all-in-one, 50 ml. It looks like usual hand cream, the cover is tight, you don`t need to twiss it off, it saves some time :) When you squeeze it out, the excess of product is coming off, not very comfortable, but the cover stays clean.
2. All-in-one with Matt-Effect 40 ml. Bottle is longer & thiner. It`s very comfortable to apply it, coz the package is really nice. Maybe my bottle was with some defects, but when you squeeze it out cover gets dirty , with excess of product.

Product:
1. First cream smells good, but has a strong fragrance of alcohol. It is very oily, sticky, feels like a mask on the face (gets inside pores and wrinkles), ewspecially after you set it with powder. You can forget to apply it with foundation brush.
The lightest tone didn`t match me, was more dark then my skin.
2. The second one is more light and watery. Has a strong smell of alcohol, but the flavour on skin is nice. Covers imperfections very nice. Looks great with powder.
This light tone feets perfectly on my skin.

Conclusion:

B.B. cream is a good alternative variant to expensive foundation. It does few tasks per one step : protects skin from sun, covers imperfections and moisturizes your skin. Both creams costs approximately the same price 10 $, but Matte Effect fits with my skin better. The first one is like a winter variant, or variant for dry and very dry skin. The second one is summer cream or variant for people with normal or oily skin. Both has alcohol inside, so it could irritate sensible skin.

If you find my article useful share it and follow my blog, I`ll be very glad, thank you ;)

Today I want to tell you about few cheap and simple remedies that will help you to take a good care of the skin by using products, which everyone has at home in the refrigerator. Before to use any of these products make sure that you don`t have an allergy on them or its components. I`m not a cosmetologist, but each of these recipes and remedies were tested by me and women from my family, so they are safe to use. Let`s start!

 Face Scrub `Honey & Salt`

This scrub is kind strong, so be gentle while treating your tender facial skin. It is very good and old method to remove the old and dry skin cells from your face. Skin will become very soft and smooth, right after the first usage of this scrub - salt removes the dirt from the pores and honey nourishes the skin. Don`t forget to use toner and a nice moisturizer, to calm down the skin.

 Face Scrub `Baking Soda & Face Gel`

This one is my mom`s recipe:) It is more gentle and fine, than a previous one, so it is very good for those who have dry and sensitive skin type. Just add some baking soda in your favourite facial wash product - gel, foam or cream and carefully rub it on your skin. Baking soda will softly exfoliate and polish the skin. Use an ice cube to calm down the redness after this procedure and a moisturizer.


Blackheads Removal Mask `Gelatin & Milk`

Everyone knows that famous drugstore blackheads removal strips, it`s kind expensive to use them all the time and they don`t work on my skin time.This method is very cheap and works even better than strips, try it yourself! Everything you need is to mix gelatin with milk and to put it in the microwave, until the gelatin will melt. After it will cool down, put the mask on your problematic areas - T-zone, chin area. When the mask will get absolutely dry, usually it takes about 15 - 20 minutes, carefully remove it from your face. You will enjoy the result, all the black and white heads will be removed. The skin is fresh & clean again :)

Mask For Large Pores

This mask will not only clean your face, but also will reduce the size of the pores. Make a mixture of a lemon juice, olive oil and 1 egg white and put the mask on zones, where you have an enlarged pores and after it will dry wash the face with warm water. The result will not be immediate, but after few procedures you`ll perceive the first changes. Areas, where the pores are larger than they should be will become less red and oily, the drastic changes won`t make you wait too long.

Oatmeal Water

The oatmeal water is a perfect homemade remedy for an acne prone and oily skin, but for those who fights with hormonal pimples and summer oiliness of the skin it will work as well. You will need a fine oatmeal, you can buy a regular oatmeal in a supermarket (without flavor and additional parts and seeds) and blend it for 3 mins in a blender, or you can buy an oatmeal flour, it will be even better. Add it to the warm water and mix very well, the water should become cloudy. Clean your face and wash it using this water. Oatmeal water will remove the access of oil from your skin and clean the dirty pores, make this procedure a part of your daily routine for a better result.


And what is your favourite homemade skin care remedy?

Lots of love,
Liza
