Born Pretty Store

Pearlescent Matte Series 

So the other day I received a parcel from Born Pretty Store that I wasn't expecting. I knew they were kindly sending me items to try out, other than my review package. But what I got wasn't what I was told I'd be getting, if that makes sense!
Inside were 2 polishes from the Pearlescent Matte Series, and a skin guard liquid latex.
While I'm patiently waiting for my review items I thought I share these with you. Also be sure to check out my quick video review too.
This is called Drop in Ocean, item number 45573, BP-PM04. I just love the frosted glass bottle and such a beautiful colour that's highly pigmented. Application was nice and this is easy a 1 coater. My first photo shows the beautiful pearl matte finish.
Then I added a glossy topcoat.
All in all a stunning polish and I'm so happy I received it and can't wait to try the other colour from the same collection.

She Modern

Foil Water Decals and Pigments 

Hey all, I have a fun and exciting look to share with you all today using items from She Modern. I've some 2 colour floral foil water decals and 2 pigments.
She Modern has a stunning selection of foil water decals and Pigments, if you not had a look, head on over to their website and take a look.
I stupidly deleted the pic of the items I used, but if you take a look at my video review, you will see.
But for now here's a look at my finished mani, under artificial lighting and natural daylight. 
I applied foil glue to my nails and sponged on the pigments the added the flowers water decals. Added some black freehand stripes and top coated with a water based top coat.

I absolutely love how this came out and that both decals and Pigments work beautifully together.

Beauty Big Bang

Chameleon Cat Eye Polish 

So the day has come. Today after 4 years my daughter gets her invisaline retainer! She had her braces off last week, and it's made her look so much older!!
I have another Chameleon Cat Eye Polish from Beauty Big Bang, I'll get on with this post as I took so many photos..
Item number SKU J6512TM-3C, a stunning green, blue to purple shift in colour. My swatches are over black and this is just one coat.

I then applied a second coat and held the magnet as close to my nail without touching for 10 seconds. Top coated and done!

I hope I did this beautiful polish justice with my photos, I find it best to capture the shift with no flash, in case you were wondering.

Polish and Stamping

So it's the school Easter holidays for the next 2 weeks, so no early morning alarm, apart from my body clock lol, so yes I'll still end up waking up super early!
I'm here today with another absolutely stunning regular polish from Momo, you can find them over on Aliexpress, the shade number I have used is 812, and is an awesome golden brown metallic. 
My swatches below are with 2 coats and no top coat, the application is just so smooth and easy with the nice size brush, check out my 2 videos, I made a quick one for IG and the full video on YouTube. But just look at the amazing colour and finish!

Now I have 1 last polish to swatch, (I would have done all 3 in one post if I had the time) and here's a sneak peek of the final colour. I tried stamping with it, and it worked perfectly!
I just love how this giraffe print also looks like pebbles. You can find and follow on Instagram
and YouTube.
Stay safe and much love.....

Charlies Nail Art

Strand Glitter 

I'm so glad I did this mani last week, as today I'm feeling totally run down and low on energy. These past few weeks of early mornings to late nights with a non stop day in between has really taken it's toll, and caught up with me!
Anyway, you didn't come here to listen to me waffling...
For Charlies Nail Art I have this gorgeous 4g bag of fine tinsel Strand Glitter. It comes in 6 different colours for £1.39.
I wanted to try something different with this glitter, so as an accent nail I encapsulated with clear dip powder. You can see how in my video below.

So versatile and fun, the possibilities with this type of glitter is endless.
Use my discount code BNM15 over on the Charlies Nail Art website, and check them out on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
Stay safe and much love....

Beauty Big Bang

Landscape Stamping 

Hello my beauties! Hope I find you well.. me, well I'm still super busy and there are not enough hours in the day!
For Beauty Big Bang today I have a super duper detailed landscape stamping plate, and a stunning electric blue stamping polish.
BBB XL070 is a gorgeous architectural plate, and just look how awesome the Royal Blue stamping polish is, item number J6415TM-1A.
The images are fabulous and have so much detail, that the only mani I could do was a reverse stamped one using 4 different designs.
Finished with a matte topcoat.
Finally over a white base I stamped directly to my nails with the blue and another 4 different images.
You can see how well both plate and polish pick up and stamp. Just great quality items from Beauty Big Bang.
My discount code above can be used on any item 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 too.

IZ Beauty of London

A mix of everything!

Hi guys, another busy day for me, so just a quick post. I've tried some more items from IZ Beauty of London today and created a fun and simple mani using a gel effect polish called Sold Out, some line nail stickers and silver hexagon studs.
Sold Out is a bright summery tangerine orange, swatched with 2 coats and no top coat. Just look at the super shiny finish.
Once dried I applied the black line stickers, then top coated and added a Silver Hexagon stud to each nail.
A fun and unusual look, especially for a base colour I wouldn't normally wear!
