La Femme

Fluo Gift Set 

Making the most of this amazing warm, sunny weather, and what better than to share with you all these stunning neon polishes, perfect for Summer. These cute 6ml bottles come in a pretty gift set and can be purchased from Vivien Kondor website,
Fluo come in 10 rainbow colours for £10.
How pretty does these all look. For my swatches I have applied 2 coats of each colour over a white base, and no topcoat.
Each have been photographed in the sun and shade, and look awesome! As there are lots of pics, I'll talk about these polishes at the end..



















A perfect rainbow of shades that really pop over a white base. The first coat is quite jelly looking, so I will try these with a leadlight mani. The second coat made the colour more opaque and just lush. The finish without a topcoat was so shiny, and not bad drying time either. A lovely gust set of polishes that would make anyone happy.
Thank you for stopping by.
Stay safe and much love....

Charlies Nail Art

Nail Foil

Oh what glorious weather we've been treated to here in the UK. I just love the warmer, sunnier weather! Also another half term holiday, boy this year is going so quickly. 
So Friday again and time for my regular review for Charlies Nail Art. I have this stunning strip of gold shattered nail foil that comes in 7 colours for only 39p. The strip measures 13mm x 4mm, so plenty for all 10 nails.
Looks at those stunning rainbow sparkles!
I painted my nails with a polish as close as possible to the colour of the foil. And used foil glue. Check out my Instagram for a quick video tutorial.
Over all the application of this foil was perfect. These 2 photos are before any topcoat.

Now regular topcoat will spoil the look of nail foil, especially if you wish to wear it for longer than a day. So I first applied a water based top coat, then my regular topcoat, photographed below..
Then just for fun, I painted some black diagonals to create a nail art look with this foil.
So versatile and easy to apply. For this or any other items from Charlies Nail Art website, use my discount code below to receive 15% off your order.

Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend and as always stay safe, much love....

Beauty Big Bang

Golden Floral Nail Stickers

Well hello, and welcome back to my little corner of the internet! I received another lot of items to review for a new up and coming company Beauty Big Bang. They not only sell nail items, but a whole range of make up. Maybe one day if I'm feeling braver I'll ask to review some!!
For today though I have these 3D Gold floral nail stickers.
These stickers are on a clear backing with open images so your base colour will show through. You can see you get a nice mix of various flowers and butterflies, and plenty to create a few mani's.
For mine I painted my ring finger white and the other nails black. The stickers peeled easily from the backing sheet, and had loads of stick to adhere to my nails. For the white nail, I added colour to the open parts of the flower, just to show another way this type of nail sticker can be used. They pressed completely flat over my nails, and I secured them with a layer of top coat.

Such an elegant look and such an easy way to add detail to any mani. TRAB10 is my 10% discount code, and why not check out Beauty Big Bang over on FacebookTwitter,
Instagram and Google+.
Stay safe and much love....

Milvart

Full Nail Water Decals 

Howdy! I'm so loving water decals at the moment. Such a quick and easy way to brighten any mani, and these full nail decals from Milvart are the best and easiest I've used. Not only are they a great size for any nail length or shape, but with the huge range of different designs and finishes, there's surely something for everyone. 
Today I've tried another 2 sets.
I really like how N609 has a different but complimentary design for each nail, and although you wouldn't think so, a white base really makes the darker colours pop.

N650 is more delicate looking with these pretty coloured flowers, and once up and topcoated they look truly stunning.

I've found these decals adhere better over freshly painted nails, but you can still apply them over polish that has been painted the day before, for example. You get enough slide to position them into place without sliding straight off your nails.  Easy clean up with a brush and acetone,  and I've not had any peeling or lifting.
If you haven't, you should go take a look and treat yourself to some of these full nail water decals, and you can also find Milvart on Facebook and Instagram.
Stay safe and much love....

Indigo Nails

Mermaid Glitters

Hello all, today I have these gorgeous bright neon mermaid glitters from Indigo. I purchased these myself from 2 eBay sellers. Though they can be bought from the indigo website. 
I have all 5 colours, Neon Pink, Neon Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Green and Neon Lila.
I first saw these when Nail Career Education used them with gel polish. I knew I needed them lol and have tried them today with regular topcoat and they worked fine. I applied a slow drying topcoat and sprinkled the different colours over each nail, working on one nail at a time. Topcoat twice to leave a smooth and super sparkly finish. Though for a textured finish, no top coat would be needed.

Just so pretty and I new I needed to stamp over with the rose image from Uberchic 1 plate 2.

Lastly I added a holo topcoat.
Swoon ♡ just love this. I found these glitters so much easier to remove from surrounding skin, as they are much much finer. You can see the full application in my video below.

Have you tried these or any Indigo products?
Stay safe and much love...
