Gold Studs Nail Art

Today I would like to show you a simple and elegant design, that I've created with the use of studs from Born Pretty Store. I love having studs on my nails because they do not only match my style, but the application is super easy. All you need to do is apply them on wet nail polish and you're good to go. So simple, yet the final effect is extremely awesome. This time I've decided for a box of silver and golden studs in various sizes (1.2mm, 2mm, 3mm). On my nails you can see the golden ones in the biggest size. I hope you like my another studded nail art design!

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Preview

LIKES
  • Better interior comfort
  • Bigger tow rating
  • 10-speed automatic on diesel engine
  • Better competes with rivals
DISLIKES
  • Divisive styling
  • How much will it cost?
  • Interior seems too conservative
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is the truckmaker’s toughest heavy-duty pickup yet.

Don’t be fooled by the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD’s wall-o’-chrome grille, brick-in-the wind styling, and muscular 6.6-liter V-8 engines—this jock is a better mathlete.


That’s because the heavy-duty pickup arms race among crosstown rivals Ford, Ram, and General Motors is about numbers. And the newest heavy-duty Chevy truck figures among the top.

When properly equipped, the new heavy-duty Silverado can tow up to 35,500 pounds with a 6.6-liter turbodiesel that makes 910 pound-feet of torque and mates with a new 10-speed automatic transmission with up to 15 cameras watching the action around the truck. And that’s just in one of up to 22 powertrain specs.

When it goes on sale later this year, the 2020 Silverado HD will be available in Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. Chevy hasn’t yet said how much the truck will cost. (Another number that matters, too.)

Like last year, the truck will be available in three-quarter ton 2500HD configuration, or one-ton 3500HD spec. The latter is available in dual-rear-wheel setup. Rear-wheel drive is standard on every pickup and four-wheel drive is available. A new transfer case offers automatic four-wheel drive that can be used on dry roads (previously a GMC-only feature) and there are multiple rear axle configurations available, depending on need.

Chevy Silverado 2500HD styling and performance
The newest Chevy heavy-duty pickup made a splash when it was unveiled in 2018, and its styling is still growing on us. Depending on configuration, the large grille moves a wall of air up front or moves our lunch around in our stomachs.

Work Truck trims gets a black plastic grille that’s tough and presumably cheap to replace, top trim High Country versions get more chrome than Google computers.

The sides largely follow the Silverado 1500 truck’s look, which was new last year. The heavy-duty and light-duty truck share multiple parts, including basic cab designs.

Around back, a big “Chevrolet” embossed tailgate closes a bigger bed this year that’s exclusive to the heavy-duty pickup. A bigger bumper step and more room in the box appeal to work buyers.

Under the hood is where the new Chevy heavy-duty will make its bones. A 6.6-liter gas V-8 is standard on all trucks and is rated at 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, up last year from 360 hp and 380 lb-ft. Compared to the outgoing 6.0-liter V-8, the new 6.6-liter V-8 offers direct injection and higher compression. It’s paired exclusively to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

An optional 6.6-liter turbodiesel returns from last year and makes 445 hp and 910 lb-ft. Its trick this year are injectors that vary fuel delivery for better refinement and a diesel-exhaust fluid tank that’s better tucked into the truck’s body. A new 10-speed automatic transmission is paired with the diesel engine for long-haul comfort—and presumably mileage.

This year, the Silverado HD better competes with the Ford Super Duty and Ram heavy duty in max towing figures: 35,500 pounds from the big Chevy. That increase of more than 50 percent is due to tougher driveline components including bigger ring gears, beefier front and rear axles, a propshaft that’s 30 percent larger, and better cooling.

The diesel engine offers a chain-driven Power Takeoff System from the engine that can run farm machinery, compressors, pumps, and other equipment.

Chevy Silverado 2500HD comfort, safety, and features
Like the Silverado 1500, the new heavy-duty Chevy offers more room in most cab configurations and an updated interior. Four-door crew cabs will be the most popular and are nearly 3 inches longer than the outgoing cabs. Regular cab and double cab configurations are available as well.

The heavy-duty Silverado sports a new bed that’s unique to the big rigs. An 8-foot and 6-foot-9 bed are available on most trucks and are more spacious. The 8-foot bed offers more than 80 cubic feet of storage beneath the rails, up more than 7 cubic feet from last year. The 6-foot-9 bed offers nearly 70 cubic feet of storage, which is up more than 8 cubic feet from last year.

Between the wheels, the heavy-duty Chevy boxes offer more than 50 inches of space to lay building materials flat.

Chevy didn’t specify the new heavy-duty’s available options or standard equipment, including safety equipment. We expect to hear more closer to the truck’s arrival in dealerships, which is this summer.

Fuel economy for the Chevy heavy-duty truck (or any heavy-duty truck, actually) wasn’t specified, but the new Silverado heavy duty is equipped with a 36-gallon gasoline tank or up to a 36-gallon diesel tank on long-bed versions.

Asus ZenFone 6 Review

Has Asus cracked the bezel-less design with the ZenFone 6? We think so - read our review and find out why.
Should I Buy The Asus ZenFone 6?
The ZenFone 6 is a phenomenal smartphone, offering an innovative Flip Camera system that not only provides high-end front- and rear-facing cameras, but allows for a full-screen display free of hole-punch cameras or notches. Combine that with high-end internals and all-day battery life, and you've got a great, all-round smartphone. 

Huawei MateBook 14 Review

The MateBook 14 is one of Huawei's new laptops for 2019 and is the perfect all-rounder. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Huawei MateBook 14?
The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter Review

We test Xiaomi's electric scooter, which will keep the big kids entertained for hours. It's now officially available in the UK, too, which makes it even more appealing.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Electric Scooter?
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is expensive and not allowed on UK roads out the box, but if you have somewhere to take it this toy is an awful lot of fun. It's fast, smooth and almost entirely silent, with a battery that just keeps on going and decent brakes that stop you quickly but safely. This scooter is best reserved for the big kids, but that's no bad thing.

DJ Khaled - Father of Asahd Music Album Reviews

DJ Khaled has ranged from summertime hitmaker to self-help guru, but neither are all that interesting on his latest guest-filled album. There are plenty of voices but no clear message or intention.
The creep of positivity culture has been steady and relentless. It has become a dominant modality of Instagram influence and global culture ever since the publication of Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret and among its most ardent benefactors (and beneficiaries) is DJ Khaled. For years, he has blended be-your-best-self mantras with middling music to great fame and, presumably, growing wealth; he even published a book detailing his “keys to success.” In the Snapchat era, Khaled’s vague, emphatic preaching made him an intriguing public figure beyond music. But unfortunately, as in the arena of emotional development, shouting aphorisms does little to prompt significant artistic growth.
