Charlies Nail Art

Vampire Fangs

Yes I have another Halloween look today with some golden charms from Charlies Nail Art. 
The first week back at school hasn't been that bad, but went quickly too!
So these you get 2 charms that have a curved back so they fit nicely on your nails.
They are called Vampire Fangs and are only 49p and measure 7mm x 6mm.
I tried to do some freehand dripping blood, but not entirely happy with how it came out!
Still though, it a gory look suitable for Halloween.

You could use these fangs to create many different Halloween looks! Applied to my nail with matte topcoat and stuck really well.
As always you can use my discount code BNM15 over on the Charlies Nail Art website,

Stay safe and much love....

Sparkle and Co.

August Subscription Box 

I'm here today with an exciting post, as I was kindly sent a PR subscription box from Sparkle and Co. I received the August sub box, and before I get into this post, there's a few things I need to say first.

First off I received 2 extra bags of items that do not come in the monthly subscription bags. 

My discount code Tracey15 can be used on items on the Sparkle and Co. website, but not on the subscription bags. 

If you sign up to become a subscription member, after 6 months you'll receive a free Store credit worth $18.00 and when you place your first order if you mention I referred you, at the checkout, you'll receive a $9 credit by email.
If you sign up for the sub bag and mention I referred you at the checkout, you'll receive an $18 credit by email. 
For the October subscription bags the sign up date is 20th September. 
So inside I have the 3 dip powder liquids, SB66 Unicorn Fierce, SB67 Marshmallow Moon and SB68 My Little Sparkle dip powders. Yes this August box is unicorn inspired!
Now if you would like to see my unboxing, explaining and creating my mani with these gorgeous dip powders, then check out my video at the end of this post. 
But I basically used all three powders on my cindy hand and they are all lush and look awesome together!
Unicorn Fierce is a stunning rainbow full glitter dip. Marshmallow Moon is a purple shimmer, and My Little Sparkle is a gorgeous pink with a blue and purple shimmer.

Of course I had to add some bling! And I absolutely love this mani, and these dip powders are just fabulous as are all the dip liquids.

Moyou Nails Fashion

Back to School Stamping 

Yes I'm aware all schools have now reopened after the 6 week Summer holiday, but I'm finally here with some Back to School stamping using a square stamping plate from Moyou Nails Fashion. This plate is on a sale price of £1.99, so grab one while they are still in stock, its Trendy 458.
A fab little plate packed full of all things to do with school, from books to pencils, a calculator and pc monitor to some cute crayons and an apple for the teacher!
So I started with a white base and stamped some blue lines to represent paper in a school book, then with black stamped images from various parts of the plate and coloured a few in. Then stamped onto my nails using foil glue. Finished with a matte top coat.

I absolutely love how this looks and its just a perfect back to school look and plate! I used all polishes from Moyou Nails Fashion. You can also find them on FacebookInstagram and
Stay safe and much love....

Born Pretty Store

Marble Stamping 

Well my daughter starts back at school today, those past 6 weeks went by so fast, but now back to the normal early morning routine, not that I had a late morning during the holidays as I was still waking up early!
After a super busy weekend, I'm back with my first review of the week.
Another stamping plate from Born Pretty Store, and one I've been wanting to try for a while. 
Texture L001 item number 46916 is a plate full of stone marble images. 
For my first look, I started with a white base and stamped with black, grey and gold. You can see how well this plate stamps in my video at the end of this post.
I think I went overboard with the colours and wasn't truly happy with how this looked, but I wore it for a few days and got lots of compliments, we are our own worst critic!
Then I chose a different image and created this pink marble look stamping with a darker pink and rose gold.
The amount of different designs you can create with this plate is endless and one I'd recommend if you too love stamping!

Please use my discount code BABX31 over on the Born Pretty Store website when you place an order 😊

Alphabet Nail Stickers 

Hello again, hope you are well! 
Today I have a cute and fun mani using some great nail stickers from Nail Art UK
It took a while for me to come up with an idea on how to use these stickers, as they truly can be used for any occasion. 
These Alphabet Nail Stickers are in capital letters with some symbols and numbers.
So for my look I created a black to white ombre on 4 nails, and created a fun and cute cow mani.
Such an unusual look, but so fun and my granddaughter loved them!
As I said these can be used in many different ways and a fab set of nail stickers to have.
You can find Nail Art UK on FacebookTwitter
and Instagram.
Stay safe and much love....

Born Pretty Store

Layered Fruit Stamping 

I know we are in September, and will soon be in a new season, but with waiting on delivery, it did delay slightly me reviewing this layered stamping plate from Born Pretty Store.
But it's never too late for some fun fruit nails!
Tropical Punch L004 item number 46746 has both large and small fruit layered designs. 
I did 2 mani's using this plate, the first using the single fruit and you can watch me create the look in my video at the end of this post.
My 2nd look I used 4 different larger images on each nail and I think it goes together well.
The layering part takes some getting used too, and you do need a steady hand, but when you get it right it looks amazing.
Please use my discount code BABX31 over on the Born Pretty Store website when you place an order.

Charlies Nail Art

Falling Leaves Nail Art 

So the nice hot warm sunny weather has gone, it was nice while it lasted, but it wasn't nice trying to get to sleep! This brings me nicely into my review today, on another set of full nail wraps from Charlies Nail Art.
Even though I slightly shortened my nails, I was still able to use these nails wraps, plus a bit of magic lol, with stiletto nails I cut off the excess and joined it to the tip so carefully that it doesn't really notice!
You also don't need a base colour for these nail wraps, so they are quick and easy to use and come in many different designs. These are priced at 89p.
Sealed with a glossy top coat and done! As easy as that with with nail wrap decals.

Nail Art UK

Milvart Water Decals 

Nail Art UK stocks Many fabulous items, from their own water decals and nail stickers to items from What's Up Nails and Milvart.
I've used and review foil water decals from Milvart and they are just fabulous. So when I received these from Nail Art UK I couldn't wait to try them.
These abstract Golden foil water decals are so detailed and I love the colourful diamond on each. For my base I started with white then added a sparkle top coat. These decals don't need long in water and apply nicely with enough slide for perfect placement. Sealed with a water based top coat so not to ruin the foil look, then my regular fast dry topcoat.

Every so pretty and even fit my long nails!! Each decals on the sheet is differently sized, and any excess is easily cleaned up with acetone. Just fantastic!

Summer Glitter Regular Polish 

I'm so behind as time has run away from me! So I've only had time to swatch 1 of 3 regular polishes from Lovcarrie over on Aliexpress. 
I will do the other 2 in my next post, but for today I have an absolutely gorgeous shimmery mahogany brown number L1008.
Check out my quick swatch video on Instagram if you'd like to see how nicely this applied. Super pigmented and just beautiful. A perfect Autumn shade. Swatched with 2 coats and a glossy top coat.

Then I wanted to see if these polishes stamp, so used number L905 (swatch coming in my next post) and a leaves image, and yes it stamped perfectly and looks stunning with the base colour.
As I said I'll have the other 2 swatches next week as I also have other reviews to do, playing catch up is so fun!!
But how beautiful does this look? These Lovcarrie regular polishes are absolutely amazing and you can find them plus many other gorgeous shades on Aliexpress, and with the sale still on, why not grab yourself some.
