My first items from Sample room PH!


Hello, lovelies!

Not nail related for this post, today is Sample room appreciation day..at least on my blog.

First, let me introduce you to Sample room PH.


 

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY


Who wouldn't want to try the products first before buying them?
Sample Room is here to give you that option. And this is our inspiration.

Sample Room is a sampling site that banks on the power of free product sampling. It is an online community that changes
your beauty-shopping pattern; and an interactive community where your opinions matter and where all beauty lovers are valued.

You don't need to..
 
Take a risk at a full-sized product that may not work for you or may give you an allergic reaction.

 Rely on reviews alone that might not jive with your skin type (as you get to try the product yourself)

 Waste money on a product that might not work for you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ok, so I first learned about their site through instagram. Basically, that was the time when I can instagram for hours, but I was still hesitant to get into it. Maybe because I was focusing more on posting my nails.

Then came 2018, and I said to myself that it is the time for me to try something new and I was in the mood for a beauty mail. Haha!

So getting back to my empty account that has been there for ages, I checked out what to add to my cart for sampling. Many products are posted but not all of them are available which is totally understandable, as Sample room is not in any way, a store where the items are being restocked. 

I have my first 100 points provided upon registration and I need to use it wisely!
It is true that the items are free, what you have to pay for is the shipping fee. Mine is around 150 pesos which I paid through Globe Gcash. I paid around Thursday 5PM, and received the package Monday morning.


So I remembered the excitement as I was preparing to go outside after hearing the delivery guy outside our gate. It's like a surprise gift for myself!
Not surprise completely though, as I was the one who ordered it. 😂











So after opening this plastic package, I finally got my hands on the Sample room signature bag.

OMG, imagine the years I spent looking at it online and finally having the guts to order my samples.







These are the contents of the bag: Himalaya Apricot Scrub and Belo Tinted Sunscreen!!












I went for the products that are actually what I needed, as my face scrub is running out and the I needed the tinted moisturizer for an upcoming beach party.


Here's a flatlay of Belo moisturizer.. I posted this on my instagram page. instagram.com/jjencortel

All-in-all, I had a smooth transaction with Sample room. I did overthink about whether they have received my payment and I checked my e-mail constantly for the confirmation letter. It was just me being praning. 

On how the products work, it will be posted on a separate post.

Bornpretty Store BPX-L013 Stamping Plate

 

Hello and happy 2018 everyone!

Surely, I'm not too late for the greeting as it has only been 20 days since the new year.. We're still in January! So.. um. Let's start with my first review for today.

It's the lovely celebration plate from +BornPretty Store Nail Art  sent by Miss Cynthia. 


The first thing I liked with this plate, is it has every festive print- from Christmas, to new year, to spring! I did plenty of NYE nail designs in the past but I've never tried stamping with it so I'm really excited to try it out and prayed that my stamping skills will allow me to pull it off.





Here's the design I came up with BPX-L013, this lovely silhouette and the festive fireworks brought a burst of fabulousness over a light base color.




















I can honestly tell you that this is a must-have stamping plate! The images are unique and well-etched that even a newbie stamper like me had no problem picking up the polish from the plate.












A live demo and tutorial of this plate is up on my Youtube channel:

Beauty Bigbang Mermaid Nail Sequins


Hello, once again!

We have the last item to review from +Beautybigbang ,which is their mermaid nail sequins!


They are available on their website and retails for $1.99



Of course I knew what design to do with it, so I did a simple mermaid design.
After applying your base color, apply a clear top coat and with the help of my dotting tool or any other nail tool you can use, I added the sequins randomly on the side. It doesn't have to be very perfect, as long as it stays on position.


Here is my simple mermaid nails..


For my accent nail, I covered it completely with the sequins, sealed it with a top coat and applied a nail charm to make it stand out.

 

Thee sequins are sliced thinly, so it's very light to pickup and easily adheres to your nails. I never had any problem with using it, and you can store it for a long period of time under good condition.

Here's a tutorial from my Youtube channel:





And I hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Peel-Off Tape Nail Guide from Beauty Bigbang


Hi lovelies, how's it going?

I've been in and out of the social media world lately and being super productive in the real life, facing new challenges and tasks.

Anyway, we have a new blog post for gradient and water marble lovers out there.

This peel-off nail tape from +Beautybigbang would guarantee to make your next nail art interesting!


We may have heard of liquid tape and all, but it's really worth a try! I've heard excellent reviews for this product from my instagram friends.



Here is a tutorial on how I made this simple gradient design with no hassle of cleanup and mess! 

It's very easy to use. Just place it on where you normally would with a liquid tape. Make sure to seal it in position with your fingers.

 
I finished my gradient design quickly because there's less cleaning time required with Beauty Bigbang nail tape.



Very efficient and most of all, latex-free!

Beauty Bigbang Dark Green Holographic Nail Polish

Hi guys!

 Today we have +Beautybigbang  holo polish for demo & review!

Beauty Bigbang has a lot of holographic nail polish on their site which I will link in the bottom of this post.





It retails for $5.99, and free shipping worldwide!
 
For this review, I did an ikat design.
 
 
I truly love this color! It's a deep, emerald shade from the bottle and upon actually applying, you will notice the blue undertones and shimmering linear holo. This is an indoor shot, but nevertheless the amazing effect is there.
 
 
This is so easy to apply! I got full coverage in one coat, but I did two just to make the holo effect stronger. Here's a macro shot to show you why it's a personal favorite!
 
It is long lasting, to 4 days chip free with top coat but it can get worn out at the tips of your nails. 



It's perfect for any nail art though I haven't tried it with stamping. You can also wear it on it's own, and it's just as beautiful!


 
Here's a tutorial of this nail art using Beauty Bigbang dark green nail polish! Don't forget to give a thumbs up and subscribe.

Drag Marble Nail Art with Beauty Bigbang Nail Sequin


Hey everyone!

 

Guess what, I'm back to reviewing more nail stuff, this time it's from +Beautybigbang 

They offer a wide selection of items from nails to makeup and so on.Free worldwide shipping! I will link their website at the end of this post. 


The nail sequins contains different-sized glitter, thinly sliced for easy application and adherence to nails.


 More colors are available on their website!

I'm so in love with this nail sequin because it looks cool, and I love gold color combos.



I chose this drag marble design because it pairs well with the sequin, and who wouldn't want a quick mani design? It's chic and simple, not overpowering the sparkles.

 

These are very light and easy to apply, even the smaller sequins.
Check out my Youtube video on how I did this simple drag marble manicure. 😍
