Charlies Nail Art

3D Nail Art

Who doesn't love a nice yummy iced donut?
My favourite icing has to be chocolate. I do really like freshly cooked donuts from the seafront too! That's enough day dreaming lol, back to this review. 
I have a pack of 2 3D Donut decals from Charlies Nail Art , that are only 29p and look so tasty. 
The detail of these decals is super, right down to the sugar sprinkle decoration. Which inspired me to paint my nails the same way, using the donut as an accent nail.

So fun and perfect for a day at the beach or a picnic. Feel free to use my discount code below to receive 15% off your order on Charlies Nail Art website.

VB Line Gel

Swatches and Review

How you all doing? I'm super busy here with reviews, loving the few days of decent hot weather here and looking after 5 kittens who are now 5 weeks old! So well and truly being kept on my toes..
I have another 10 gel polishes from VB Line, but I'll start this review with my 25% discount code that you can use on either or
So into the swatches. All with 2 coats and topcoat, curing in between each coat.
599 Dark Blue Shiny Metallic. Oh my this shade is utterly amazing. The right amount of shimmer and perfect in every way.
582 Purple Rose Mirror Glitter is a very pretty and delicate shade, the glitters are perfectly distributed for even coverage.
664 Light Peach Pink Pastel is an awesome neutral creme.
588 Light Rose Mirror Glitter is super special, so elegant with silver glitters.
578 White Pearl Gold Glitter is another beautiful shimmer shade, so unique and bling.
994 Neon Super Blue...Wowzers! This is one vibrant colour and completely and utterly me.
808 Super Neon Pink Rose is again a super bright shade and another of my fav colours.
696 Shiny Yellow Sun is more transparent than the previous 2 neons, but still a pretty colour.
810 Super Neon Hot Orange... back to the in your face shades! Absolutely loving how bright this Orange is.
922 Purple Pearl Metallic is a lovely pinky purple colour. The shimmer is simply beautiful.
As you can see the amazing range of finishes and colours you can purchase from VB Line. All great quality and I love how the colour of each gel is at the top of the lid, to make choosing a colour easier. Though with the amount to choose from it could also be difficult!!

Nicole Diary

Stamping Plate 

Hi guys, I'm excited about this post as I'm back to Stamping!! After all the swatch posts I'm doing, stamping my nails again makes a nice change. I was asked to choose 5 Plates from Nicole Diary, and delivery was super fast :)
I also received 2 cute scrapers. On first look the images seem crisp and well etched, and some lovely designs. First up I used Plate ND 007 a very pretty floral one.

Both images stamped perfectly straight on my nails and for decals. I really like the contrast of both these mani's, 2 completely different looks yet equally stunning.
You can find Nicole Diary on or Aliexpress and over on
I can't wait to try the next plate, come back to see how I get on!
Stay safe and much love...

Vivien Kondor

Holographic Collection 

The next 9 polishes I have swatched are holographic and they are all super pretty and look so beautiful in sunlight. These Vivien Kondor polishes are the only round bottles with a silver lid, priced at £4.99.
Purple Haze.
Royal Blue.
Midnight Blue.
Perfect Pink.
Sunset Gold.
Dark Blush.
Maybe not the strongest of holo polishes, but this scattered holo is still absolutely amazing. All swatched with 2 coats and topcoat, though Evergreen could have possibly done with 3 coats. The drying time is quite fast, and even without topcoat they have a very shiny finish.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are all the places you need to keep up to date with Vivien Kondor.
Join me soon for the next collection of polishes.
Stay safe and much love...

Born Pretty Store

Chrome Glitter Pigment 

Hello, I'm here to review the next 2 colours of Chrome Glitter from Born Pretty Store. These chromes are hard to capture their true beauty, but in person they are extremely pretty and very shiny. Maybe for some, the chrome look isn't as mirror finished as they'd like, but for me these glitters are awesome. So with colours 3 and 4, both applied over a black gel base and no wipe topcoat, using my finger to buff the glitter into the polish, and a dry clean lint free wipe to buff and shine.
My photos with the white flowers are before applying another coat of no wipe topcoat. The blue flowers are with topcoat.

The final application of topcoat doesn't make much difference to the chrome look. Then I tried over normal polish, for those who don't use gel and asked me if it would still work. I am aware I'm not the first to try this, but I'm using different polishes.

Using a cheap black polish from Saffron as a base I applied just 1 coat. When dry I applied Essence Fast Dry Topics and waited till it was almost dry. Applied chrome pigment number 3 using my finger. The effect is nice, and I only top coated my pinky and ring finger, which as you can see does change the look. So yes you could use these chromes with normal polish, but you can't really topcoat them.
I'm really liking these glitter pigments, and will share 5 and 6 with you soon. My 10% discount code is below.

VB Line Gel Polishes

Swatches and Review 

I will say hello, but get right into this post for VB Line gel polishes. Today I have 15 gels all with different finishes, I was going to split this into 2 separate posts, but as I'm swatching so many I need to catch up on myself! 
344 Plum Blue Purple a very pretty colour. Creme finish and super glossy even before topcoat. 
494 Plum Purple Shiny another creme finish and a lush shade.
574 Light Pink Rose Pastel is a very delicate creme.
388 Line Green Metallic is sheer gel, but a lovely light colour.
343 Blue Plum Purple looks more of a dusky purple, but a super creme gel.
560 Hot Green Super Summer is such a vibrant shade, perfect for Summer.
445 Pink Rose is the perfect name for this shade, as it is so pretty.
551 Coral Red Nude Pastel is a beautiful more neutral shade.
349 Red Pink Glitter is a lush and bright gel, more of a shimmer than glitter.
297 Dark Green Metallic is a completely awesome colour, and for someone who doesn't normally wear green polish, I love it!
301 Light Brown, is more of a light toffee colour, but a great neutral base.
315 Light Plum Purple is a very pretty shade, reminds me of grapes!
319 Plum Purple to me is more of a wine red colour, and very sassy.
356 Light Green, more of a mid green shade than light.
543 Beige Nude Pastel is my favourite of the neutral shades, very delicate.
These polishes are great to apply and quality, and cure to a very beautiful and glossy finish. Use my discount code below to receive 25% from your order on either or
