Blog sale!

Benvenuti! Ogni prodotto che vedete è stato usato, utilizzato per swatches o nuovo e conservo tutto nella maniera migliore possibile e in un ambiente pulito ed asciutto. Se un prodotto è nuovo o molto usato lo indicherò nello specifico. Igienizzerò tutto ciò che mi è possibile igienizzare con lo spray antibatterico della Beauty So Clean. A scopo puramente preventivo, vi invito a ripetere l'operazione una volta che ciò che acquisterete vi verrà recapitato. 

Ecco qualche regola:
  • Spedisco in Italia, ovviamente, ma anche all'estero. Consegna a mano in Torino (con delle restrizioni, meglio accordarsi via mail).
  • Costi di spedizione: vi rimando al sito di Poste Italiane, tutto dipende dal peso della busta/del pacco. Per favore, cercate di non chiedermi ulteriori sconti dato che i prezzi dei prodotti sono già ridicolmente bassi.
  • Nessun rimborso, nessun reso: una volta che il pacco viene spedito, qualsiasi eventuale danno o smarrimento o cambio di idea (vostro) non è sotto la mia responsabilità
  • Se siete interessate a qualcosa, scrivetemi a:
  • "Chi prima arriva, meglio alloggia"
  • Accetto pagamenti solo su Paypal (scrivetemi in caso di consegna a mano)
  • Invierò la richiesta di pagamento dopo esserci accordati tramite mail sui prodotti e la spedizione e dovrà essere pagata entro 48 ore, trascorse le quali il/i prodotto/i verranno rimessi in vendita
  • Mi spiace per le eventuali attese, ma spedirò solo di lunedì per motivi organizzativi


Welcome! Each item you see in this sale has been gently used, just swatched or never used and everything is stored in the best way possible (in a clean and dry place). If a product is new or very used I will clearly indicate it. I will sanitize all the sanitizable items with the Beauty So Clean Cosmetics Sanitizer Mist pictured below. Of course, just for the sake of it, I suggest you to repeat this step once the item will be in your hands.

And here are some rules:
  • This sale is INTERNATIONAL (I ship internationally at the buyer's own risks )
  • Shipping costs: see below! [The prices of the items are already low, please don't ask me to have an additional discount...]
  • No refunds, no returns: once I will ship the package, I won't be responsible for it if it gets damaged or lost or if you changed your mind..
  • If you're interested in some products send me an e-mail to:
  • First-come, first-served
  • An item will be reserved for you 24hrs and then go back to sale if I don't hear from you anymore.
  • Payment: Paypal only
  • I will send you an invoice after we've agreed on the sale and please pay the invoice within 48 hours or I will put the items back up for sale
  • I'm sorry, but I will only ship on Mondays for organizational reasons

The nailcare and handcare edit: my staples and some tips

It's been a minute since I started doing my own natural nails at home and I've tried *coughs* quite lot of products myself during this decade [you can check out my Flickr album for reference] and I think I've finally come to know how to take care of my nails. For this, I feel like I can share a couple of tips without feeling guilty for doing so (e.g. not feeling "entitled" to do so ahahah).

If you've read my previous post on nailcare, the way I perform my manicure hasn't drastically changed. As a matter of fact, many of the things I've talked about in that article (link here) are still relevant.
However, in these last few years, I've learnt some new things.

The best way to take care of my nails and hands, for me, is by three separate phases, each of which consists of different steps: 
  1. Dry phase
  2. Wet phase
  3. Oily/greasy phase

Random chit-chat

Hello beauties!
Today I'm doing something I think I've never done on this blog, and it is actually sharing some personal thoughts. Not on nihilistic philosophy or any weightier topic, but on the beauty community and my two cents on the subject.

First of all, my intention is not to throw shade on anyone nor criticize nobody's way of life or choices by any mean.
However, since I started watching beauty videos on Youtube or reading beauty and nail blogs almost... well, ten years ago, things have changed quite a bit.
The positive aspects of the change are better quality in photography, editing, videos, the fact that so much info is right at your fingertips.
But at the same time, I feel some of the content and creativity had been lost along the way.
Of course, blogs and Youtube channels are quite two distinct if not separate worlds.
Talking of the former, even though there are some beautiful blogs (Italian, British, American, French, Portuguese, Australian, etc...) that have amazing content, are well written and also happen to have excellent photos (I'm not going to pretend that I don't consider  aesthetics as well), I feel like some other blogs, for as beautiful or famous as they are, have lost that spark, that originality that made them grow and become interesting, to my eyes at least.
Blogs, especially nail polish related ones, are (kind of) losing the battle with Instagram. Images have a powerful impact, that's for sure, but shouldn't words have equal power?
I am certainly not a type of "blogger" (well, am I one, really?) that... types a lot (sorry, the pun was too much fun), but it doesn't mean I don't appreciate writing or reading.
I write on other subjects, more personal, on other platforms, but when it comes to nails, makeup and beauty I have a lot of things to say on my mind, but unfortunately not much desire to put said thoughts in written words. I guess I'm just lazy. I always tell myself to make videos or a podcast because chatting about beauty would be fun and then I never do it.

And this leads me to Youtube. Clickbait titles and thumbnails, same contents, same subjects, same topics, even the same styles sometimes! Not to mention fakeness, rudeness, bullying, hyper-drama and aggressiveness.
I don't need to make names, I don't even want to, but I long for those days when watching other girls' videos and reading their blogs was fun, engaging and was also a way to make connections, talk about your passions with other people like you.
I'm not saying it does not happen today as well, but... personally, I don't see that anymore. And that's such a shame. Above all, for the young girls that maybe move their first steps into the beauty world by watching some plasticky, fake bombshells that make them think all it takes to be happy or fulfilled is to be perfectly made up.
I'm not saying these people are bad role models or that they are shallow. Maybe there are some profound individuals. What I'm saying is that we need more spontaneity, less worrying about the "picture perfect" and more genuineness. Of course, wearing (or not) our favourite lipstick and nail polish.

I would really love to hear your opinion! Do you think the beauty community got better, worse? Do you prefer the "good ol' times" or you really enjoy how it is right now?
Let me know in the comments down below!
Thanks for stopping by, take care beauties!

Zoeva Plaisir Box photos

Hello beauties!
I wanted to share a review on these products but I just never got around to do it, so I figured I might share the photos I've taken of the Zoeva palettes last year, around Christmas time. My punctuality. Ahah. The Plaisir Box is still available on Zoeva's website and the palettes are also sold separately.

Ciao bellezze!
Volevo condividere una review di questi prodotti, ma alla fine rimando sempre, quindi ho pensato che tanto valesse mostrarvi almeno le foto che avevo fatto a Natale dell'anno scorso. La mia proverbiale puntualità. Ahaha
La Plaisir Box è disponibile sul sito della marca e le palette si possono comprare individualmente.

*No sponsored or affiliate links. Products were gifted to me by my BF. 
Link non affiliati nè sponsorizzati. I prodotti mi sono stati regalati dal mio ragazzo.
