Vivien Kondor

Water Permeable Polish

Hi guys, hope you had a good weekend? Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I did, as though I'm not a true royal, I have a soft spot for William and Harry as their Mum was a beautiful person.
So today I bring you some exciting news. I'll start with my swatches first as these 2 are from the old Water Permeable collection from Vivien Kondor and are on sale as a collection of 40 brand new shades has now been released.
No base coat or top coat is needed for these polishes, otherwise that beats the point of it being water permeable. But saying that, it doesn't stop you wearing these as normal polishes if you don't need the water permeable for religious reasons. They are beautiful creme polishes and perfectly opaque in 2 coats and dry quickly to a lovely glossy finish.


So as I said these 2 are from the old collection. Now look at the stunning selection of newer colours as well as new packaging!


 Over the coming weeks I'll be fetching you my swatches and thoughts on each shade, plus I now have a discount for you all to use over on the Vivien Kondor website, with UK and international delivery, why not treat yourself! And be sure to watch out for my post on the new collections.
Plus you can keep up to date with Vivien Kondor on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
Stay safe and much love....

Charlies Nail Art

Pearly Studs

Yay for Friday, I'm feeling so much better too, which is so nice after 4 weeks! 
I'm also super excited to share my mani with you, it's one of those times that the idea I had in mind actually worked! And is super pretty.
Today I have these Pearly Studs from Charlies Nail Art. They come in cream and black, with golden trim, 20 in a bag for 79p and measure 4mm round with a flat back. 
So as I have the cream ones, I knew red polish would compliment them perfectly, but I didn't want full out red, and painted 2 nails with a cream polish. Added gold striping tape, a few dots of pink and green and a pink flower water decal, then placed the pearly studs with topcoat to finish the look. Central on the red nails and off set on the cream really adds to the final mani, which I totally love!!


Perfect size studs, even for my pinky! They adhere well, so elegant and a great item to have. BNM15 is my discount code for you to use over on Charlies Nail Art website.
You can also find them on FacebookInstagram
and Twitter. New items are regularly being added so make sure you go take a look.
Have a great weekend and as always stay safe and much love.....

Moyou Nails Fashion

XL Stamping Plates

Almost the end of another week, and I'm so looking forward to a lay in at the weekend! 
Ok so on with this review for Moyou Nails Fashion and continuing with their new XL stamping plates. Today's plate is from the Vintage collection and comes packaged in a vintage style envelope. The plate measures 12.5cm x 6.5cm and has 18 full nail designs.
A nice mix of images from more true vintage, to floral and even animal print! Admittedly these images are too small for my long nails, but that's where the clear stamper comes into play perfectly. Double stamping is now super easy! For each of my mani's I have double stamped all nails apart from pinky. All polishes used for base colour and stamping are from Moyou Nails Fashion, even my gradient. I really can't recommend these polishes enough for the use of making the easiest, smoothest and stunning gradients. They are so pigmented and blend so nicely, with a quick drying time too. Anyway here are my 4 different looks....



Now looking at my nails could you tell if I hadn't mentioned that I had double stamped? So even if your nails are long don't be put off by the size of these designs, the Moyou Nails Fashion Clear Jelly Stamper works perfectly with these plates and polishes and also great as the stamper head is slightly smaller more of the image goes on your nails and not on your skin, so clean up is so minimal.

Beauty Big Bang

Petal Water Decals 

Hello all, how's your week going so far?
I'm plodding along at a snails pace, as the medication I'm on has really knocked me for six! But I'm trying to stay as active as I can, that's why I'm here today with my next review for Beauty Big Bang
Such an easy look to create with these stunning Petal Water Decals.
BBB001 item number J6464TM has 12 allsorted size full nail water decals each with a delicate pastel floral design. They are on a transparent background so could be used over any colour polish. But I think white is best as it really makes the flowers pop, yet still look so delicate.
The one thing I did notice with these decals is they are super duper thin! So once on your nails they looks flawless. Clean up was easy and added a glossy topcoat.
Then I added a matte top coat and think I prefer this finish. What do you think?
There are many other gorgeous design water decals from Beauty Big Bang so why not check them out, plus please use my discount code below, as if it's used 6 times Beauty Big Bang with host a giveaway with me over on IG.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter is where you can find Beauty Big Bang.
Stay safe and much love.....

Revel Nail

Sun Colors Dip Powder 

Hi guys, I'm going to be taking things easy this week, and luckily I have a few posts ready to go so you won't miss me lol.
Today I have another sun color dip powder from Revel Nail. I took advantage of the sun to use another one of these dipping powders, though saying that they are so sensitive to light, that even without bright sunshine you will still notice a shift in colour. 
Morocco is today's colour, a gorgeous pot of shimmery chocolate powder!
Pictured here with the Pro Base, Activator and Finish Gel. This pot is 1oz, and comes with a protective seal. Just check out that shimmer!
As promised in my previous post I have a full application tutorial, and even a live colour change.
                      
I'm not sure how well the colour change showed up on camera, so check out my pics below. First shown in its natural shade.
Now look at the transformation! Another squishy looking colour that reminds me of milk and dark chocolate lol. Such a stunner! Plus dip powders are super easy to use. I mean if I apply it on my cindy hand using my non dominant hand and get such a smooth finish it goes to show how simple the application is!
 

FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to keep up to date with Revel Nail and join me again soon for another amazing Sun Colors Dip Powder.
Stay safe and much love....

Born Pretty Store

Rainbow Water Decals 

Hey friends, how was your weekend? A nice quiet one for me, which to be honest I was thankful for as I wasn't feeling that great, and hoping to get a doctor's appointment today.
I'm hoping I'm still gonna be able to carry on with my reviews, but health comes first!
Luckily I did these mani's a few days ago for today's post. My last for Born Pretty Store until I receive my next items, and I have these gorgeous Rainbow Water Decals.
This is sheet number 3 and there are 4 to choose from, each with 3 lots of different images per sheet all with a beautiful colourful rainbow gradient. Lots of allsorted sizes and on a transparent background. They can be used in many different ways and even mix and match them. Here are the 2 looks I created...



So easy to use and don't need long in water to slide off the backing, a great size for all length nails, even mine! Adhere well with enough slide for perfect placement. Excess clean up is also easy with acetone. Glossy or matte top coat both give a pretty finish aswell as protect these decals.
BABX31 is my discount code for you to use if you make a purchase from Born Pretty Store and you can keep up to date with them on
FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
Stay safe and much love.....

Charlies Nail Art

Mylar Glitter

Happy Friday peeps! Have you any plans for the weekend? Me, I'm going to relax and watch the F1. Especially after the bust bank holiday. 
I'm sure your aware by now that Charlies Nail Art stocks an amazing variety of nail art items.
They have added some new items, one of which I have reviewed today. 
This bag of Mylar Glitter comes in a resealable bag for 75p and there are 8 colours to choose from. I have the white/clear.
The irredesent sparkle is so pretty. You can use these with gel, encapsulate in acrylic or dip powder or like I did today with regular polish. I created 2 totally different looks that have totally different effects with the same Mylar Glitter.

You wouldn't believe I used the same glitter, the contrast how this shimmers over white polish with the delicate pinks and blues, to the green over black polish is just amazing. It's also nice that the Mylar is already cut into pieces and shapes of all sizes.
 
You can check out Charlies Nail Art over on
FacebookInstagram and Twitter and should you place an order then use my discount code BNM15.
Have a great weekend and as always stay safe and much love.....
