Nail art

✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯


♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

"Nail art is a way of adding beautiful colours to your life."

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡


Nail art is a form of artwork, a creative way to paint, decorate, embellish and even enhance the nails on both fingers and toes.

The decoration of nails looks back on a long history and the exact origin of nail treatments is unclear, but the decoration of fingernails has been around since the time before Christ.
In ancient Egypt, women dyed their nails with henna, which indicated their social status. The women of the lower class wore pastel, pale and neutral tones, while the upper class wore deep, bright tones.
In Babylonia, men coloured their nails with black and green kohl, which again indicated a difference in status. Black was for the nobility and green for the common man.
Around the same time, 3000 before Christ, the first nail polish was created in ancient China.
The above examples mainly reflected differences in status, but the Incas (15-16th century) decorated their nails by painting eagles on them, which can be seen as nail design. It is said that modern nail art has its roots in the nineteenth century Europe.
Today nail art and nail care is a booming industry. With different tools such as brushes and using different techniques, a variety of designs can be achieved.

StylesNails.com as a wholesaler offers a wide range of products related to the nail. The products range from nail polishes to artificial nails and nail brushes. In the picture below I have collected some stylesnails brushes from different brands. The tools are available in different shapes and have been created in simple to eye-catching designs. 

The painting pens in the lower right corner are equipped with a cleanable and reusable sponge head and are made in several colours. They are manufactured by the brand Monja. Please note the different packaging contents when purchasing. Either 1 sponge pen with 4 spare sponge heads is included, or only the pen or only the sponge heads. Shop it here.

Do you like to paint your nails? Are you a fan of nail art? Which is your favourite nail polish shade?

Lots of love,

A henley shirt is a collarless polo shirt, with short or long sleeves, characterized by a placket under the round neckline and usually with 2-5 buttons.
Harem pants are baggy, long trousers caught at the ankle. They are inspired by Middle Eastern styles and Turkish trousers.

Da Weihnachten bald vor der Tür steht, ist es an der Zeit, darüber nachzudenken, die Online-Einkäufe fertigzustellen – besonders wenn dies auch andere Länder betrifft.

Shape it!

"Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel."

Shapewear and also corsets look back on a long history and are popular from time to time. It is an undergarment worn under the dress and is intended to alter the body shape of the wearer to achieve a figure, which some consider to be more fashionable.
It is mostly preferred by women, but there are also designs for men. The garments are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. You can buy if for the area you would like to improve. There are briefs, camisoles, tights for example, but a full bodysuit is also available. The levels are also different depending on what result you would like to achieve, whether you want an ultra or a light slimming effect. So there is a variety of products available to find the best shapewear for you.

Since body shapers are used to give the wearer the illusion of a flat stomach and a curvy waist, wearing them of course has its own benefits and disadvantages. 

+ A shapewear makes you look lighter and smooths your body, giving it a clear silhouette. 
+ Based on that, it builds confidence. 

-- On the other hand, if wearing it gives you the illusion of being light, you may feel heavier and more uncomfortable not wearing it. 
-- Shapewears mess with our body image and make us feel more insecure. 
-- It puts so much pressure on body parts and organs that it can cause health problems. It can affect the stomach, lung function or blood circulation, but numbness in the legs can also occur. 

Considering the pros and cons, it is important to get a good fit and ensure that it is neither too tight nor too loose. Since the effect is temporary and long-term use can be harmful to the body, wear it for a limited period of time to avoid unnecessary health problems. It should also be accompanied by proper diet and exercise

The models on the picture are from Lover-Beauty, that offers lingerie in many types from panties through babydolls to adult costumes. 

Have you ever worn a shapewear? How have you felt? If you have no experience with them, would you consider buying one for yourself?
As always, feel free to leave a comment below, and if you would like to have a look at some more shapewear for women wholesale, visit their website.

Set your goals and make them happen

I believe that a positive word or action - received or given - can change your entire day. Every little step counts, a smile, a door kept open, a beautiful note or a friendly word.
If you've read my article about the kindness and happiness challenge, this article might also be of interest to you. And if you haven't read it yet, I suggest that you read it and, if possible, even take part in the challenge.

I love any kind of stationery. If they spread a bit of kindness, it's even better, and I've always wanted to try happiness diaries and similar things, but I haven't found a suitable one yet. When I was contacted by a small, UK-based company that published their first planner, of course I visited their website, and after seeing their products, I immediately said yes to participate in their journey.
The planners from Mål Paper are available in 3 colours: black, grey and pink (like peach flowers).
The cover is very simple and clean, just a title with small golden letters breaks the colour.
The notebook contains some quotes, a few at the bottom of the pages, while others have their own pages. They can help you look at the situation from a different angle, or just to make you smile.


In the planner you can list your long and short term goals and the things for which you are grateful. You have the space to review your month and week, you can even rate your day (1 to 10). The notebook gives you the opportunity to list today's tasks, add notes, and at the end of the planner there is space for notes and calendars, and even a small envelope to add your little memories, like a ticket. 


The Daily Goal Setter is a gratitude journal and productivity planner in one. It helps you to focus on the positive things in your life and become more mindful and productive. 
It has a PU faux leather softback cover with gold embossed details. The size of the planner is approx. 142x205mm and has 256 pages. To check it out, just visit their website. 

What do you think of this planner? Do you have one or something similar?

Wishing you a great week.  :)

In most cases we use Arabic numbers, but the Roman numerals are also common in some applications. They can be seen on watches and clock faces, they can be found in books on prefaces and chapters, they can be seen in movies and at major events, but they are also used to name monarchs or to indicate the year on monuments and buildings. 

In this number system, which originated in ancient Rome, there are seven letters, each with a fixed integer value, which, when combined in different forms, produce new numbers. The Roman numerals consist of a combination of the letters I, V, X, L, C, D and M, whose symbols stand for 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 in the Hindu-Arabic number system. 
The position of the letters in relation to each other determines the value of the Roman numeral itself. 

These Roman numerals, which were the usual way of writing numbers throughout Europe in the late Middle Ages, were later replaced by the already mentioned Hindu-Arabic number system. 

Beside the mentioned items, you can also see these numbers on the Roman numeral date necklace below. Its 3x0.6cm pendant can be personalized with your own date. The necklace from www.getnamenecklace.com is available in 3 colours: sterling silver 925, 18K gold plated silver and platinum plated silver. You can choose a chain length from 35 to 55 cm.
By selecting the number, please make sure that you are using the correct form, which by default corresponds to the American style: mm/dd/yy.


A memorial necklace with picture can also be considered when it comes to personal keepsakes. There are different designs that can be customized with your own photo. Some allow you to engrave the back of your pendant or place your photo on the back instead of the front.

Which pendant is your favourite from the picture above? Do you have a personal keepsake? If so, what it is?
