KOTD: Essence - Irreplaceable & M64


Today I will show you another Essence nail polish called "Irreplaceable" (I thought I showed you this before, so I didn't take pictures without the design). It is a nude polish with small golden shimmer.

Because Miu Miu reminded me of this design in her post, I added it from image plate M64 which I got from Bornprettystore, using Essence Stampy black polish!

Would you wear it?

Review: Travalo Excel - refillable atomizer

Hello everybody!

How many times have you wished you had your perfume with you, while being at work or going to a meeting? Or you simply wanted to freshen up a little bit when you are out? 

Well, this is possible now, without being necessary to carry your favorite perfume bottle with you.
Now you can use Travalo Excel, a refillable atomizer, which has a system that allows you to refill in seconds with a simple repeat pump action. 

It comes in a protective carry case, so it won't get scratched if you put it in your bag.
It is made of aluminium, so it's extremely light, lasts up to 65 sprays and it has only 8,5 cm and 20 grams.

It comes in a variety of colors, here you can see some examples:

Now, let me show you how it works!

First take you favourite perfume bottle (in my case: Davidoff - Cool Water). Travalo fills directly from almost any fragrance bottle with a removable spray head.

Simply remove the nozzle from your big fragrance bottle (you have to put it on a plan surface), pump Travalo up and down on the tube, and you can be ready to go in just a few seconds.

It is easier to fill it up with the lid on. In my pictures you can see that I did it with the lid off, but I didn't have any problems when refilling!

Travalo has an integrated fill level indicator window to show how much fragrance you have left.

Here you can also watch a movie to see how easy it is to refill Travalo!

I really like this product and I totally recommend it!
It's a must have for people who travel a lot or work a lot and need freshen up during the day! I think it's a great gift for both men and women!

Where can you buy Travalo?

Travalo Excel can be bought from http://www.travalo.com/index.html

You can also win a Travalo Excel by participating in their "Daily Spray" contest, on their Facebook page

Do you own a Travalo? Do you think it's usefull?

NOTD: China Glaze - Gaga for green

Hello everybody!

Here is the second China Glaze polish from Electropop collection, which I bought from BeautyInTheBottle.

It is called "Gaga for green" and it's a fresh, bright green. It's finish is somewhere between creme and jelly. 
In the pictures I'm wearing 2 coats. 

Here are some more pictures!

I love this green and I think it will be great for spring and summer!

Do you like wearing green?

NOTD: China Glaze - Wicked style


Because I am a nail polish addict, I couldn't resist the temptation and bought 2 polishes from China Glaze's Electropop spring collection.

I ordered them from BeautyInTheBottle and got them a few weeks ago!

Here is a picture of the two polishes I bought: Wicked Style and Gaga for Green:

And now, I want to show you one of them: Wicked style:


As you can see, it's a bright, tropical color, which will be perfect for spring and summer. I think it's a shade between pink and coral, and, although I am not a "pink person", I really like this one!

What do you think?

NOTD & KOTD: Valentine's Day nails

Hello everybody!

Here is my Valentine's Day manicure idea:

For this manicure, I used Orly - Crawford's Wine, which I won from Holly from Holly and Polish (Thanks Holly!), along with another Orly polish and an Orly nail treatment.

Now, let me show you the swatches:

After applying the polish, I added a design from Bundle Monster image plate BM02, using Essence Stampy polish - White.

What will you wear on your nails on Valentine's Day?

Comparison: China Glaze Below Deck vs. Essence Walk of Fame

Hello everybody!

Here is the comparison I promised: China Glaze - Below Deck versus Essence - Walk of Fame. I am wearing 2 coats of each polish. 

I thought that they would be similar when I bought Walk of fame, but I was wrong. 

Here are the pictures:

What do you think?
I love them both!

For my Romanian readers: you can buy China Glaze polishes from BeautyInTheBottle.
You can find some other shades there or you can order the one you'd like.
