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!

Oral-B Genius X Review: Hands-on

The Oral-B Genius X might just be the first Genius brush to live up to the name thanks to machine learning trained on thousands of users

Should I Buy The Oral-B Genius X?
Smart toothbrushes tend to over-promise and under-deliver, so I’m sceptical about heaping too much praise on the Genius X until we’ve tested it more.

But after one brushing session I’m cautiously impressed. Tracking seemed more accurate than any other smart brush so far, with feedback at the end that really seemed like it might be useful - all in the sort of premium package you’d expect from a brush at this level.


Price When Reviewed
  • To be confirmed

Oral-B isn’t the first company to claim to have packed artificial intelligence into a toothbrush - and like most of the others, it’s really stretching the term to get away with it - but that doesn’t change the fact that on first impressions the Oral-B Genius X is one of the most impressive smart toothbrushes we’ve seen yet.

The Genius X takes advantage of data recorded from the brushing habits of thousands of people to better recognise brushing habits and techniques and give you surprisingly accurate real-time feedback on where you’re brushing - and how well.

Price And Availability
The Genius X doesn’t come out until July, which means there’s a little while to wait, so don’t throw away your current brush just yet.

Pricing hasn’t been confirmed, but we can make an educated guess. The Oral-B Genius 9000 has an RRP of £300, so the Genius X will likely sit at a similar point, if not slightly higher. Bear in mind though that most retailers tend to discount high-end electric brushes heavily, so you probably won’t actually ever need to pay that much. 
Enamel Intelligence
Smart toothbrushes have been around for a few years, but Oral-B seems to have a fairly good claim to having made the smartest one yet.

The Genius X doesn’t really have proper AI, of course, but instead Oral-B has used machine learning to train the brush - or to be more precise, the accompanying app - on thousands of users’ diverse brushing styles.

The idea is that no matter how you hold the brush, which order you brush in, or how you angle your head, the Genius X will still be able to tell which region of your mouth you’re brushing at any given time, using a combination of internal gyroscopes and the app’s algorithm.

Other brushes can already do this of course, and up until now Oral-B was lagging behind - the previous Genius brushes all required you to prop up your phone to use its camera to monitor your brushing - but none are as accurate and responsive as the Genius X seemed in my first test.

No matter how I moved the brush or my head around, it quickly caught where it was and updated the on-screen graphic. What’s even more impressive is that unlike similar devices from Philips and other rivals, the app doesn’t tell you which part of your mouth to brush when (giving it a helping hand in figuring out where your brush is likely to be), so it’s figuring it out purely thanks to gyroscopic data and machine learning smarts.

At the end of each brushing session you’ll get a score based on how long you brushed for, how consistently you covered every part of your mouth, and whether you used too much pressure, along with tips on how to do better next time.

Elsewhere, the brush is about what you’d expect from a top-end Oral-B brush: there’s a range of colours, fancy customisable lights to let you know when to move to the next section of your mouth, and a range of different brushing modes like whitening or tongue care.

Plus there’s a fancy new travel case which Oral-B says will not only charge the brush, but also has a port to charge other USB devices - like your phone - which could be handy while travelling.

Early Verdict
Smart toothbrushes tend to over-promise and under-deliver, so I’m sceptical about heaping too much praise on the Genius X until we’ve tested it more.

But after one brushing session I’m cautiously impressed. Tracking seemed more accurate than any other smart brush so far, with feedback at the end that really seemed like it might be useful - all in the sort of premium package you’d expect from a brush at this level.

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.
