Born Pretty Store

Beach Nails

Hi all, wasn't feeling so great again but pushed myself to carry on with my reviews. The weather here has been fab just lately but now it's gone very muggy and humid, we did have a wicked thunderstorm but it did nothing to clear the air. So why not do a beach mani and these studs from Born Pretty Store.
In a nice handy wheel with a nice mix of gold and silver seashells, starfish, anchors and sea horses.
My base was a gold to blue gradient with a white water spotted marble then I applied these studs using topcoat. 
You can check this out on my quick video.

The flat back makes these studs stick better. The range of sizes and designs really bought my base to life creating a fun and Summer beach look.

Of course you can use my discount code and how exciting is the new series launch that's coming very soon!

Stay safe and much love.....

Beauty Big Bang

Holographic Polish

There's nothing I love more than an amazeballs holographic polish in the sun. 
Hello to you all again, and welcome to my tiny space on the world wide web! 
Beauty Big Bang  have really knocked it out the park just lately with their stunning stamping plates and polishes. As soon as the sun appears I grab a holo polish and can't wait to see the amazing linear holo-ness. 
Item number J6414TM-2A Fuchsia holographic is utterly amazing in colour and holo quality. 
I think this colour might be my new all time favourite. Sorry blue! I mean I tried my best to capture the absolute true beauty of this and I think I did it justice.


I even had to try a macro shot!
My swatches are with 2 coats and top coat. I was tempted to stamp over this, but just couldn't. If you love holo polishes as much as me then you'll understand lol.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to keep up to date with Beauty Big Bang and should you place an order you can pay by credit card or PayPal and free worldwide delivery plus use my discount code TRAB10.

Revel Nail

Sun Colors Dip Powder 

Hi ho peeps, I'm coming at you with another amazing Sun Colors Dip Powder from Revel Nail. Life has been life so nothing to report lol, so I'll get staring on with my review.
Application again I'm sure your all aware of by now, but I may do one more video tutorial as after this shade I only have 2 colours left to try!
It's so nice the British weather is playing nicely too! So the colour I have today is called Sun Island, a stunning neutral coral to dusky pink.

So here's the normal colour.
Then bam! Look at the colour change! These dipping powders always amaze me and make me smile as I see the colour shifting. I can't wait to get out in the sun lol.

And again from questions I'm asked, yes you can add nail art over dip powders. Here I stamped and added water decals. A tip aswell, if you want nail art to last I've found for me personally that waiting till the next day and adding another layer of the finish gel doesn't spoil your design, and will protect it till you soak it off.
To check out all the dipping powders plus the Brand New Wunderlust Revel Mates Set, take a look over on FacebookInstagram and Twitter and be sure to check out my quick video on IG.
Stay safe and much love.....

Vivien Kondor

New Argon Oil Collection

Did you have a nice weekend? Went way to quick but was a nice sunny one with family and F1! And an awesome thunderstorm.
So from my previous post for Vivien Kondor I will be sharing with you polishes from 2 of their brand new collections over the coming weeks. To start with I have 5 from the new Argon Oil Collection.
These polishes are 7 free, vegan friendly, cruelty free and contain argon oil from Morocco. Each bottle is 11ml and decorated with the Vivien Kondor logo. The benefit of argon oil in polish is that fuses intesnsive nourishment for healthy nails.
So I have CL01 a 3 in 1 base and topcoat, CL02 Matte Topcoat, CL03 Rose Gold Glitter, CL04 Gold Glitter and CL05 Silver Glitter.
The rose gold glitter is super pretty and packed full of tiny golden and pink glitters. Swatched with 3 thin coats and no top coat.
Then I added the matte top coat. It may have dulled the shine but just look how stunning rose gold glitter still looks.
The Gold glitter is slightly more chunky, and would be great for a glitter topper. But I went for a more full glitter finish, by sponging my nails. Swatch is with no topcoat.
Then I applied the 3 in 1 topcoat.
Lastly the silver glitter. This was the largest size glitters of the 3, and again a great topper. I sponged on my nails for a full glitter coverage. Swatched with no topcoat.
Then to try and show you the matte top coat a bit better I added some squiggly stamping. But over the coming weeks I will show you the matte finish again with a creme colour.
This collection has 39 colours and is available very soon. As soon as I know when you can purchase them I will add and link to a blog post. But for now be sure to check out the Vivien Kondor website for their older collections and use my discount code tracey20.
With UK and international delivery you are sure to find a colour and finish you need.
But if you can't wait for this argon oil collection be sure to check out Vivien Kondor on FacebookInstagram and Twitter to get all the latest updates.
Stay safe and much love......

Charlies Nail Art

Rhombus Glitter

Friday at last! And how quickly did this next school holiday come round! But I'm not moaning at a week off, from early mornings anyway lol.
Do you know that way back when I first started painting my nails, I wasn't aware there was such things as nail art goodies! Living under a rock ha ha, but then my mum didn't really paint her nails, and with no other female influence I wasn't fussed about my nails! Couldn't say the same now! Which brings me nicely to my Charlies Nail Art review with this Rhombus Glitter.
I have the silver holographic, but there are 22 colours and finishes to choose from, flat and measuring 2mm, these cost only 75p.
I applied these with a clear polish over a black base to best show these. Starting with an accent nail on my ring finger, then to other matching designs on my other nails. Each glitter laid flat and stuck well. This is before topcoat.

Then to protect them I applied 2 coats of topcoat. You can see it didn't spoil the look of these rhombus glitters.
Taking more time you could definately make some interesting designs with these shape glitters, and if you got a few different colours, a stunning rainbow effect would look awesome.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the others ways to check out Charlies Nail Art, plus don't forget to use my discount code BNM15.
Have a fab weekend, and as always stay safe and much love....

Moyou Nails Fashion

XL Stamping Plates 

Hey guys 😊
I'm spending today writing up all my reviews, I have done a fair few as I was making the most of the weather for natural light photos. So I'll start with my last XL stamping plate from Moyou Nails Fashion.
Bridal 3 is perfect for the up coming wedding season.
A nice mix of singular images, from floral to butterflies. Great for any look if you wanted something different and not wedding themed. For my first mani I stamped the roses in white over a black base, then with water colour paints carefully coloured over them, to create colourful rainbow roses.
Next I did go more bridal and stamped in white again but over a pinky neutral base colour. Then added some small half pearls.
Finally another rainbow look, but this time stamping with these 3 metallic polishes and a few of the different butterfly images.
Another fantastic plate for anyone's stamping collection. A so many different looks you can create with any colour combo.
From all the XL plates I've reviewed, I honestly can't pick a favourite, they are all equally great, nicely etched and so many to choose from each full of beautiful designs. Head over to Moyou Nails Fashion website and have a look for yourself, and should you make a purchase don't forget to use my discount code traceysp.

Revel Nail

Sun Colors Dip Powder 

Hey all, I won't waffle but get straight into this post as these sun color dip powders from Revel Nail are so much fun I want to spend the day playing lol. 
Today's colour is Barbados, again a 1oz pot full of soft acrylic dip powder. 
A beautiful mid blue shade, though looks like a purple tinge in my photo, it is actually blue! Now from my full application video last week, I'm sure you now know how easy these are to apply.
So here is how the colour looks inside. Just an amazing shade of blue 💙
Then into the sun I go, and just look! What an awesome shift in colour! You wouldn't think a blue could turn into this beautiful purple.
Now one question I get asked alot is can you stamp over dipping powders. Well of course, it's just like stamping over regular polish, acrylic or gel. So I stamped a tropical design in white and here's how it looks inside.
  
And again in the sun.
I've noticed the longer you are in bright sunlight the stronger the colour changes. I even noticed a slight change when the sun shone through the window and hit my nails. And I think I mentioned this before, but even outside with no Sun, these Sun Colors Dip Powders still change slightly. If you love dip powders I would really recommend these. Revel Nail also sell regular, glitter and mood change powders, that change colour depending on your body temperature, another fun set!
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to keep up to date with Revel Nail, and I'll have another stunner to share with you all next week.
Stay safe and much love....

Beauty Big Bang

Soak Off Clips 

How are we all? Good I hope. Another quick post from me today as you can see my first impressions and full review in my video below. As I wear dipping powders and they need soaking off, I tried these Soak Off Clips from Beauty Big Bang.
Item number 96396, you get 10 purple press open clips, that are all the same size. They fitted all my fingers and thumb even with my long nails perfectly and comfortably. They can be used for soak off gels, but as I said I wanted so see if they worked well when soaking off dip powder. So I'll leave you with my video.
