Nicole Diary

Stamping Plate

Hi guys I'm so glad to be back with another stamping plate review for Nicole Diary. I have another round plate that has some fun images. ND020 is great for a more unusal stamped mani.

The single images would look great for a chalkboard mani, but for my review I have stamped the barcode, chains and zip.

Simple monochrome for the barcode, and you can see how well this plate stamped. The zip I stamped on silver over a denim blue polish, and it's a nice size to multi stamp as I did. The chains were stamped gold over a black leather look polish, simple yet still striking. Totally love this plate, and you can find Nicole Diary on Amazon.com 
or Aliexpress
Have you tried any plates from Nicole Diary? 
Stay safe and much love..

Born Pretty Chrome Glitters

Chrome Pigments 5 & 6

Hi guys, how you all doing? I'm good and what with swatching, family, kittens, kittens, family and swatching!! The days are over in the blink of an eye...
So anyways, onto the next 2 Chrome glitter pigments from Born Pretty Store. Both applied over a black gel base and no wipe topcoat. Buffed in using my finger. I do want to get one of the chisel silicone tools to try with these pigments, just to see if this makes a difference to the final chrome look.
Number 5 is a pretty deep sea green.

Number 6 is a blue that's shifts to purple in certain 6.

I do like these chromes, though they do seem a bit muted to others I've seen. This doesn't really bother me as they are super awesome in person, just hard to capture the true beauty in a photo (for me anyway!) 
My discount code is below for any order you make on Born Pretty Store website. 
I have numbers 7 and 8 left to do and hoping to have a silicone thingy tool, so come back to see if this makes these look more chrome.
Stay safe and much love...

Vivien Kondor Review

Bon Bon Scented Collection 

I can't believe how fast I'm getting through these polish collections from Vivien Kondor. But they are all great quality, super finishes and colours. Nice drying time and gorgeous finishes. The next 9 I have swatched are the Bon Bon Scented Collection. 8 very pretty shimmer glitter colours and a matte top coat. I'm not normally one for scented polishes as they give me a headache, however these ones from Vivien Kondor have the right amount of scent and not in your face over powering.
Lemon swatched with 2 coats and a glossy topcoat. You can make out the scent once the polish dries. These did have a quick-ish drying time. The scent is so lemony fresh! 
Orange again swatched with 2 coats and a very pretty shade. I guess the matte top coat comes in this collection as they do dry to a matted finish. A subtle citrus scent.
Orange with the Matte Topcoat.
Strawberry. A super red and not too sweet a scent. Swatched with 2 coats and no topcoat, so you can see the true finish of these polishes.
Wild Berries is a gorgeous deep wine shade and super vampy. Not a over powerful sweet scent.
Blue Berry is purply blue, but still stunning. A subtle berry scent.
Anise is a very lovely colour, and the scent reminded me of a herb garden.
Mint is a lime green that has a fresh scent.
Liquorice is a dark grey black and I was expecting my nails to smell like liquorice allsorts lol. I'm not sure I'd say it has true liquorice scent, but still nice smelling and subtle.
Vivien Kondor got these Bon Bon Scented Collection polishes perfectly right. I like the finish without a topcoat, which is slightly textured. The matte top coat is a good addition to anyone's polish collection, and even with a glossy topcoat the finish and sparkle on these is beautiful. So if you like a subtle scented polish then you'll love these.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are all the places you can find Vivien Kondor.
If you love purple polishes, be sure to visit soon to see the Glowing Lavender Collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and till next time stay safe and much love...

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.

As always stay safe and much love....

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 VBLine.co.uk or VBLine.com.
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!!
You can find VB Line over on Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter, and don't forget about my discount code.
Stay safe and much love...

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 Amazon.com 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...
