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 GMC Acadia Preview

LIKES
  • Good looks
  • Infotainment upgrades worthwhile
  • Intriguing new turbo-4
DISLIKES
  • Active safety tech should be standard
  • A little narrow inside
  • Push-button shifters not our favorite
The 2020 GMC Acadia’s expanded lineup and new styling look worth the wait.

A newly optional engine, upgraded infotainment, and revised styling mark the 2020 GMC Acadia.

The three-row crossover SUV goes on sale this fall with a new 2.0-liter turbo-4 sandwiched between carryover base 2.5-liter inline-4 and optional 3.6-liter V-6 engines. The new turbo-4’s 230-horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque rating puts it between the 193-hp base engine and the 310-hp V-6.

The turbo-4 is standard on 2020 Acadia SLT and Denali trim levels, while the base inline-4 comes on the Acadia SL and SLE and the V-6 is included with the new off-road-oriented Acadia AT4 trim level. The new turbo-4 can shut down two of its four cylinders in low-load situations to conserve fuel, too.

Regardless of what’s underhood, the 2020 GMC Acadia’s engines put power to the wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission instead of last year’s standard 6-speed. The new transmission and a standard stop/start system could improve fuel economy on all Acadias, but the refreshed Acadia has not been tested by the EPA.

GMC did not say how much the new turbo-4 will be rated to tow. The automaker said that suspension tweaks will improve ride and handling on its crossover SUV.

Outside, the updated Acadia has new LED headlights and a revised grille design that give it a boxier look than last year’s model. Stretching about 194 inches from bumper to bumper, the three-row Acadia slots in above the automaker’s five-seat Terrain and below its trucky Yukon.

The new Acadia AT4 features dark exterior trim and all-terrain tires wrapped around 17-inch alloy wheels, although 20-inch wheels are optional.

All Acadias feature new exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, and the power liftgate on SLT, AT4, and Denali trims projects the GMC logo onto the ground at night.

Inside, new infotainment software is complemented by a redesigned center console that discards last year’s conventional shift lever for a button setup like that used in the Terrain.

The Acadia Denali has a new interior color scheme that includes a blue-hued dashboard and now comes with open-pore wood trim rather than the faux wood trim in last year’s model.

2019 GMC Acadia technology and safety

An 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment replaces last year’s standard 7.0-inch unit. For 2020, the Acadia’s key fobs are linked to the infotainment software and can automatically reset certain preferences such as audio presets, climate settings, and favorite destinations for the optional navigation system.

GMC added two USB Type-C ports to the Acadia’s center console, bringing its total count of USB inputs to five. An upgraded 15-watt wireless charging pad and a head-up display system have also been added to the options list.

A new high-resolution rearview camera is optional on SLE and standard on SLT and higher trim levels. On the Acadia Denali, a rearview mirror that doubles as a display for a high-resolution camera is newly optional.

Surprisingly, automatic emergency braking is standard only on the Acadia Denali. It’s optional on the Acadia SLT and the AT4 but not available on the SL and SLE trims.

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.
