My nail care routine


   Kiekviena karta po iraso "Nails of the day" sulaukiu daugybes komplimentu nagams ir dar daugiau klausimu, kaip juos priziuriu, kad pavyksta tokius uzsiauginti. Taigi, dalinuosi su jumis savo nagu prieziuros patarimais.
************
   Everytime after "Nails of the day" post I have so many compliments for my nails and even more questions about my nail care, what I am doing for to have nice, long and strong nails. So in this post I am sharing my nail care routine.

Nail care routine

Step one: treatment for my nails.


  Kiekviena karta pries lakuodama nagus, rankas pamirkau siltame vandenyje su druska 10-15 min. Priklausomai nuo to, ka turiu namuose, ispaudziu citrinos arba ilasinu alyvuogiu aliejaus.
**********
  Everytime before I do my nails, I put my nails in a warm water with salt for 10-15 min. Sometimes I add in to a water lemon juice or few drops of olive oil, it depends what I have at that moment at home.

Druska / Salt


  Geriausia tinka druska su jodu, juros druska, kurioje gausu kalcio. Druska stiprina nagus, veikia antibakteriskai. Jeigu neturit juros druskos puikiai tiks ir valgomoji druska.
**********
  The best salt is with iodine, sea salt witch is enriched with calcium. Salt strengthens your nails, has antibacterial effect.

Citrina / Lemon


Tai puiki nagu tvirtinimo priemone, kuri kartu sviesina ir balina pageltusius nagucius.
********
It is perfect thing for your nails strengthening. Also lemon juice can help whiten and brighten yellow nails.

Olive oil / Alyvuogiu aliejus


   Alyvuogiu aliejus stimuliuoja nagu augima, minKstina nagu odeles, jame daug vitamino E. Taip pat labai tinka nagams sezamu aliejus.
*********
   Olive oil stimulates nail growth and contains vitamin E which is great for your cuticles. Also you can use sesame oil which is great for your nails as well.

Step two:  giving a shape.


  Visuomet nagus dildinu stikline dilde: man ji patogiausia, o ir tikiu, kad maziau kenkia nagams. Kartais nagu odelems naudoju pilinga, kartais jas nukarpau specialiomis zirklutemis, kartais tiesiog atstumdau ir visada pabaigoje patepu aliejumi.
***********
  I always use glass nail file from glass: it is the most comfortable for me and I believe it's not so damaging for your nails. This step is optional, depending on your needs. I always do it in different ways as well. Sometimes I do my cuticles with special scrub, sometimes with scissors. But always in the end I apply some oils to make it soft and healthy.

Step 3: nail polishing!


  Visada, kartoju VISADA, be jokios isimties, pries lakuodama nagus spalvotu laku, pirmiausia juos nulakuoja belsvapliu, stiprinanciu nagus laku. Jis ne tik stiprina jusu nagus, bet is saugoja juos nuo pageltonavimo, kuris gali atsirasti del spalvotuose lakuose esanciu dazikliu.
************
  Everytime, I am telling you EVERY SINGLE TIME, before polishing nails I apply one coat of clear nail strengthener polish and only after that apply nail polish. This is the way to avoid yellow nails.

Choose your nail polish...


And it's done!


Grazaus savaitgalio visiems!

Have a nice weekend!

Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake

Coffee makes it possible to get out of bed, but cupcakes make it worthwhile



   Taip, man tai daugiau nei tiesiog desertas... Tai tarsi maistas akims!  Spalvoti, zaismingi, nuotaikingi, kvepiantys, saldus, tarsi magiski... Dazniausiai ilgai uztrunku kol pagaliau isdristu atsikasti, nes gaila sugadinti toki grozi. Ta zinodama viena mano drauge apdovanojo mane ilgalaikiais keksiukais!
***********
   Yes, for me it's more than desert... It's like food for my eyes! Colourful, funny, sweet and amazing smell - it's a kind of magic! I have to admit it takes long time before first bite - I am taking my time and enjoying by looking and smelling cupcakes, feel sorry to ruin such a beauty. This is why one my friend gave me long term cupcakes!

Just click in the middle and keep your hands warm with those self heating cupcakes.

**********
Love for cupcakes even inspired me to cook! To make real cupcakes with icing and decoration is too big challenge for me, so I enjoy muffins:) This time I made Blueberry muffins by Laura Vitale recipe. Delicious!!



Isbandykite, tikrai nesudetingas receptas.

Not only my personal life is changed at the moment I am changing my job as well.  It means, that I have to change my wardrobe as well.

The look: nail news

Nails inc magnetinis nagu lakas
Nails inc Fishnet magnetic polish


    Nails inc pristate nauja magnetini nagu laka, sukurianti zvejybinio tinklo ispudi. Nagu laka kol kas galima rinktis tik is triju spalvu:

  • Piccadilly (auksinio atspalvio);
  • Soho (metalo spalvos);
  • Spitafields (zalias smaragdinis atspalvis).
********
   Nails inc has announced the arrival of new magnetic nail polish which creates fishnet pattern look. The polish is currently available in three colours:
  • Piccadilly ( a gold shimmer);
  • Soho (chrome metallic);
  • Spitafields (emerald metallic).

 Labai tikiuosi, kad ateityje sio lako spalvu pasirinkimas bus didesnis, kadangi man pats Fishnet pattern sukuriamas ispudis labai grazus, taciau nelabai patinka nagu lako spalvos. Be to, viliuosi, kad kaina taip pat sumazes, kadangi dabar buteliuko kaina yra 13 svaru ( Nails inc Fishnet pattern lakas).
***********

  I really hope that in the future will be available wide range of colours, because I like the fishnet pattern look, but not really fancy current shades. Also, I hope it will be cheaper, because at the moment price is £13 (Nails inc Fishnet pattern nail polish).

Kokia jusu nuomone apie si laka? Gal esate bandziusios?
Kokia  nagu lako spalva siuo metu jusu megstamiausia?

Empties of the month

Empties of the month

Zinau, kad dazniausiai tokio pobudzio irasai pasirodo menesio pabaigoje, o ne jam vos ipusejus. Taciau prisikaupus daug "pribaigtu" produktu vienu metu, nusprendziau, kad dabar tokiam irasui puikus laikas:)
**********
I know that is more usual to see such a type of post in the end of the month, not in the middle. But I have so many empties, that I decided it's perfect time for Empties of the month post.


Garnier Fructis plauku kauke. Ne karta kartota ir naudojama n metu - puiki kokybe uz priimtina kaina. Esu is tu zmoniu, kuriems pabosta naudoti tuos pacius produktus, megstu keisti ir nuolat ieskoti, isbandyti kazka naujo. Taciau yra keletas produktu, kurie man labai patinka ir laikas is laiko as prie ju griztu. Si kauke viena is tokiu.
Pakeitimas:
Tigi S Factor Serious Conditioner su saulegrazu aliejumi.

************
Garnier Fructis hair mask. I have been using and repurchasing this mask for a years. It's a great quality for a good price. I am such a kind of person who gets bored by using the same products and I like to try something new. But there are some products that time after time I go back for. This mask is one of products I am repurchasing quite often.
Replacement:
Tigi S Factor Serious Conditioner with Sunflower seed oil.



Omnia Botanica valomoji veido kauke. Sia kauke irgi esu kartojusi keleta kartu - puikiai tinka misriai veido odai, valo uzsikimsusias poras, palieka gaivios ir svarios odos pojuti.
******
Omnia Botanica cleaning face mask. I repurchased this mask few times as well. It's suitable for combination skin type as it cleaning blocked pores quite well and leaves fresh and clean skin feeling.


Pakeitimas:
Lush Love Lettuce gaivi veido kauke.
*******
Replacement:
Lush Love Lettuce fresh face mask.


Baylis&Harding England gyvinantis oda graikiniu riesutu kuno sveitiklis. Negaleciau pasakyti, kad patiko ir rekomenduociau. Pats sveitiklis gana astrus, taciau nepasakyciau kad po eksfoliacijos isliktu malonus svelnios, nusveistos odos pojutis.
***********
Baylis&Harding England invigorating walnut body scrub. I couldn't say I liked this product and I would not recommend it. It quite harsh scrub, but does not scrub your skin very well - I just don't have that soft skin feeling after this scrub.


Pakeitimas:
The Body Shop Kokosinis kuno sveitiklis.
**********
Replacement:
The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub.


Tai dar ne visi isnaudoti produktai, taciau jei sukelciau visus gautusi nezmoniskai ilgas irasas:) Tad geriau juos paliksiu menesio pabaigai.
**********
And it's not the end of the list. I will leave other products to the end of the month, as I don't want this post to be too long:)


Grazaus savaitgalio visiems!

Have a nice weekend!

High impact

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Su sio menesio Marie Claire zurnalu gavau Clinique High Impact Mascara tuso meginuka. 
******
This month Marie Claire magazine comes with Clinique High Impact Mascara sample.



     Sis tusas naturaliai isryskina blakstienas. Clinique High Impact suteikia ilgesniu blakstienu ispudi ju neapsunkindamas. Konsistencija nera nei vandeninga, nei per tirsta, todel blakstienos nesulipinamos, nelieka gumuleliu. Kadangi tusas yra ilginantis blakstienas, norint isgauti tankesniu blakstienu ivaizdi reikia tepti kelis sluoksnius.
***********
     This mascara gives you natural looking full long lashes without  making your lashes feel hard. The formula is not too watery or too dry, so it's not clumpy and keeps lashes separated. This is lengthening mascara so several coats need to be applied to build up and thicken the lashes.

(Du sluoksniai /  Two coats)

    Mano nuomone tai labiau dieniniam makiazui skirtas tusas, kuris suteikia graziu, naturaliu blakstienu ispudi. Sakydama naturalu, turiu omenyje efekta, kuris tiesiog paryskina blakstienas, bet nesuteikia dramatisko vakariniam makiazui budingo ivaizdzio.
********
    In my opinion is more a daytime mascara as you can achieve a good natural look. Natural look - in the sense that it is more enhancing than dramatic effect.

The Intouchables

Jau seniai maciau toki gera filma, kuris taip patiktu. Rekomenduoju.
********
Haven't seen such a good film for a long time. Impressive, I recommend to see it.


Ar matete si filma? Gal turit parekomenduoti geru filmu lietingiems vakarams?
