Charlies Nail Art

Snowmen Nails 

Are the weeks going quicker or is it just me? I mean it only seems like the other day I posted my Charlies Nail Art review. Well hello again, and welcome to my next Friday review with these super cute Friendly Snowman nail wraps. These wraps are water decals and are priced at 89p.
The difference between these and regular water decals are that these are solid and on a white backing. There are 5 different sizes and 2 of the same image, with one side showing a reversed image. Now even for my long nails these were fine, I did add a tiny bit of white polish at the tip of 2 nails to blend in with the snow effect of the wrap, but it hardly noticeable!  I found a matte finish suited these better than a glossy one. What do you think?

Super cute and so sweet, I especially like the pinky finger one with the snowman cuddling a teddy bear! For these and any item Christmas related or not, my 15% discount code is below for you to use.

Moyou Nails Fashion

New XL Plates

Hope you are all well, I'll get right on with this post as I have three mani's to share with you all and a busy day ahead.
The next stamping plate from the new XL range from Moyou Nails Fashion is Glam 1.
With 8 full nail images and a nice mix of stars and hearts this is a very versilte plate. With the help of a clear jelly stamper, even with my long nails I was able to double stamp the full nail images. I started out with 2 coats of
Celestial Blue a gorgeous metallic blue, I them stamped with Light Blue a pretty creme. The contrast between the 2 blues is super pretty.

Next up I wanted to try the stars, so started off with 2 coats of Black and added a matte top coat. Then stamped various stars with Silver. This look reminds me of a chalk board.

Finally to the hearts, the 2 animal print ones really caught my eye. 2 coats of Chilean Fire, then with a Clear Jelly Stamper and black, I stamped the hearts.

You can see how well the images from this plate stamped so clean and crisp.

Kiara Sky

Marbled Dip 

Ahoy Matey! Sorry I'm in a silly mood as I've been playing with the little fur babies who can now all climb out of their box, and they are so funny that they have put me in a great and silly mood lol.
I also had so much fun with two dipping powders from Kiara Sky. I wanted to try a marbled dip powder nail look. It's super super easy to do. My colours were one I've previously reviewed, Black to Black and an in your face neon yellow called New Yolk City.
Not only did I want to try this technique, but with summer now officially over, I thought the neon would look better paired with another colour. To create a dipped powder marble look is so easy. You take your main colour, and add your second, putting a little line of powder over the top of the first. Gently swirl and mix till your happy with the effect, and just dip like regular dip powder application. I used a scoop from the Kiara Sky Recycle System to place my powders. And here is the finished look....

I really like how each nail has a different and unique look. If you'd like a video tutorial on creating this mani just let me know in the comments below.

Stay safe and much love.....

Born Pretty Store

Holo Chameleon Pigment

Hello again it's only me! How I'm managing to get anything done with three 4 week old bundles of fluff who can now climb out of their box and cause mischief, I don't know! 
You can check out my video below to see how well these 2 Holographic Chameleon Pigments from Born Pretty Store apply over regular polish, and what I use for perfect application. The 2 have are LG04 and LG10.
LG04 is a blue to purple pigment.
LG10 is a deep red to green pigment.
My black base was completely dry before I applied my tacky polish. I applied the pigments in a light dabbling motion them gently burnished into the polish with my finger. A water based topcoat so not to ruin the finish of these pigments.
And just look at the shift ♡
Under artificial lighting to show the holo hill in these.

Then I wanted to try something I saw Ten Little Canvases do with gel polish, so I wasn't sure if it would work.
I mixed a tiny bit of the pigment with some clear polish then over wet polish I dotting on pigment mix to create a dotticure look.

Beauty Big Bang

Rainbow Stripes

Hello lovlies, did you all have a nice weekend? Mine was a proper lazy, relaxing one. I really couldn't be bothered to do anything!
It's been a while since I last shared a review for Beauty Big Bang, that being because for some unknown reason my parcel was sent back to them! But this was quickly resolved and re posted to me. So for my first post I have some glitter rainbow striped Striping Tape, it comes in solid glitter colours or a multi coloured rainbow one, which is the one I have, and is so pretty. It's 2mm and is only £1.89. Product number J1478-MC.
I had my nails painted black and totally dry, and cut sections of this tape. How pretty does this look and the glitter effect is awesome.
I placed 3 pieces on in each nail in different directions and clipped on the over hanging parts with cuticle nippers. On top coating I did notice 2 things, firstly the colours in each strip became more vibrant. You can see this in my photo below.
Secondly you need to float the topcoat just like you would with a stamped mani, as the colours from the glitters will smear.

I love how well the colours stand out over the black base, it really didn't bother me that the colours changed with topcoat, if anything it makes the look better. This tape has the right amount of stick and didn't feel thicker than other striping tapes. I normally use them to get thin lines on my nails, you you place them, paint over them then peel them off. 
This is a great item to have and can be used in many different ways.
TRAB10 is my discount code for you all to use over on the Beauty Big Bang website, with free worldwide shipping and payment by PayPal or credit card, and don't forget you can keep up to date with them on FacebookInstagram
Thanks for stopping by and as always stay safe, much love.....

Charlies Nail Art

O Christmas Tree

Happy Friday guys! Have you started planning for the fast approaching holidays? Me...nope, it's just going to be a quite relaxing one here for a change.
But just to get you a tiny bit more inspired, I have the cute tiny golden Christmas Tree decals from Charlies Nail Art. 
You get 25 decals for 75p that measure 6mm x 4mm and they can be bent and shape to fit perfectly on nails and are gold on in both sides. For my look I went for a Christmas green polish and placed the trees in different angles with top coat, then I added a few golden dots in the gaps.
I love the contrast between the gold and green, and it really brings out the tiny details in the decals.
A great look for a Christmas party, or the big day itself! For these or any other Christmas nail art accessories head over to Charlies Nail Art website and should you place an order please use my discount code below.

Born Pretty Store

Geometric Stamping

Well hello again! How are you all? I'm good, just busy as usual and kitties are now 3 weeks old and becoming more playful! 
So for my next Born Pretty Store review, I have a square stamping plate BP X36 with some very pretty designs on.

If I'm honest I much prefer the full nail images on this plate, something about a grid design and the flowers really appeals to me!
Great for reverse stamping and leadlighting,  which is exactly what I did. Stamping with Born Pretty Black I coloured in with a green and pink red sheer polish.

I did try a neural look with the images at the top of this plate. Maybe in different colours this would look better, think I'm having another off day!!
A great versatile plate for all year round. The full nail images are a nice size even for my long nails, and the other geometrical top images are a nice size and a great assortment of designs which are etched well and stamped with a nice clean crisp look.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are all the places you can check out Born Pretty and should you place an order please use my discount code BABX31.
Stay safe and much love....
