She Modern

Foil Water Decals 

The weather has become so mild and due to be unseasonaly warm, which I really don't mind at all, this also brings me nicely into showing you these foil water decals from She Modern.
They are perfect for both Spring and Summer, called Mixed Arts 15, in Silver holo but available in 17 different foil colours and finishes.
A mix of grass blades, ladybirds and flowers, with open parts perfect to colour in. I started with a blue to green gradient, and added the blades of grass. For the flowers and ladybirds I placed on a clear stamper and coloured in, them applied the decals to my nails using foil glue. Top coated with a water based top coat to protect the foil.

These decals apply just like normal decals, you just need to protect the foil with a water based polish. In a fabulous range of designs, and the newer 2 colour ones there is definitely something for everyone. The one thing I'd like to try is using pigments with these decals. I may try this soon!

Beauty Big Bang

Easter Stamping 

Hello! I had a nice day yesterday and received some nice gifts, no polish, but a nail dust fan, which I'll share very soon, but for now back to my Beauty Big Bang review. I'm sure time goes so quickly now as we start doing nails for different occasions.
BBBXL-058 is a fun Easter theme plate with cute chicks and rabbits as well as yummy chocolate eggs. I was only able to create 2 looks, the first taking a while as I used 4 different images and made reversed stamped decals.
Stamped with Beauty Big Bang black, this plate is etched well and so detailed.
For my final look, a more simple mani, but still very pretty.
Over a nude brown base I stamped with Brown SKU: J6415TM-4A, that is super pretty and very pigmented just like all the other stamping polishes from Beauty Big Bang.

Stamping Gel 

It's my birthday! I will be doing some bling birthday nails later today, as I'm writing this post at 5 in the morning, blasted cats woke me up!
So today I have a new to me brand who kindly sent me a whole bunch of stuff to review, so thank you to Rosalind.
If you've been following me for a while you'll know I don't do gel, and haven't for a few years now. But I've always been curious about trying gel again. So with this in mind, what harm would a stamped image in gel do. 
I have 2 5ml pots of stamping gel in white and blue, I also used a stamping plate and clear stamper from Rosalind. 
You see in my video, that I had a few problems at first. Stamping with gel is completely different than stamping with regular polish. The white gel is super pigmented and the stamper picked up nicely.

I tried the blue on tips, and found the best way to stamp with gel. Instead of rolling the stamper to pick the image off the plate and then roll over your nails, stamp straight down to pick the image up, and straight down to transfer to your nails.
These gels are UV/LED soak off and I cured for 60 seconds with my cute pink LED pen. I had no issues, and protected my skin with liquid latex while stamping.
You can also find Rosalind over on Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter.
I'm off to make a cuppa now.
Stay safe and much love...

Charlies Nail Art

Rhombus Nail Glitter

Rhombus Nail Glitter in Royal Blue. It also comes in 14 colours for 79p.
For my nails, I used a baby blue polish and applied the glitters with a clear base polish. A full covered accent nail and lines on my other nails. The glitters laid flat, and I top coated to protect them, which made didn't ruin the finish, just made it more glossy.

Hello peeps, Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
I'm super busy today, so will get right into this post.
I have 2 sets of foil water decals from She Modern, that I've used to create a simple yet utterly stunning Valentine's looks.
Spiral Hearts 2 is a two colour foil decal, and you can choose your colours over on the She Modern website, so great to customise to suit everyone! Lines is super fun, and a great look.
The spiral hearts I have are in Silver holo and purple, the lines are a beautiful pink foil.
I did a purple to white gradient and added a holo topcoat, then added the decals to my nails and sealed with a water based top coat to protect the foil.

To see how easy these are check out my video review too!

Born Pretty Store

Bling Nails

Welcome back to my tiny part of the world wide web! Today I have created two very different looking bling nails. One that's very dainty and the other full bling overload, and a look I've wanted to try for ages.
I used these stunning Rhinestones from Born Pretty Store.
You get 3 all sorted colours, silver, rose gold and an off white. They have a flat back and are all one size of 2mm with a stunning AB cut, so the glisten and shine. Item number 42634.
So onto my spring time look. Stamped flowers in pink and white over the opposite colour base, and added rhinestones to the middle of each flower.
This adds an extra dimension to this mani.  Next up I used my Silver holo polish, and added the silver rhinestones to each nail apart from my ring finger. I completely blinged this nail! The effect was awesome in person, I would have liked to have filled all my nails this way, but used I whole segment just on this nail!
In the sun it was absolutely amazeballs!!
I applied the rhinestones with a water based top coat, and happy to say they didn't loose their shine or go dull.
If you like bling nails, I would definitely recommend this wheel. Use my discount code BABX31 over on the Born Pretty Store website,
and take a look at their FacebookInstagram
and Twitter.
Stay safe and much love.....

Beauty Big Bang

Valentine Stamping

Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was okay. I think my mood is reflected by the gloomy weather, and I'm longing for some warm sunshine!
For Beauty Big Bang today, I have a romantic themed stamping plate.
BBBXL-046 has some beautiful designs that are just perfect for Valentine's day or even celebrating a romantic event.
For my first look I started with a light pink base, and stamped the lips in red, removing the script, then re-stamping the 'with love' in black.

For my next mani, I liked a few of the designs and created a romantic scene across my nails. Finished with a matte topcoat, I absolutely love this one!

The images are very detailed and etched well, they pick up and stamp beautifully. A perfect stamping plate for all those romantic people.
Use my discount code TRAB10 over on the Beauty Big Bang website and if its used more than 6 times then Beauty Big Bang will kindly host a giveaway with me over on IG. You can pay by PayPal and credit card with free worldwide delivery.
