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.
Why not use my discount code BNM15 over on the Charlies Nail Art website.

Stay safe and much love.....

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!

Lovcarrie

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.
You can also find them over on Instagram and

Born Pretty Store

Neon Dip Powders 

So it's a nice warm, sunny bank holiday Monday here in the UK and I've got a gorgeous neon dip powder manicure to share with you all. These dip powders are from Born Pretty Store on Aliexpress but you can also find them on the Born Pretty Store website and use my  discount code BABX31!
The item number is 46667 shades FP-10 blue and FP-02 purple.
They may be smaller pots but I'm still able to dip my long nails!
Again like the pink the blue has a very subtle shimmer and came out with the same jelly like finish. The purple is more on the creme side of finishes.
No video this week as I've been reviewing lots of dip powders, and here is how they look on my nails.
Both very vibrant and super pretty, but I couldn't leave it plain! So added some striping tape and gems.
I'm actually loving how this looks and both shades compliments each other perfectly. Dip powder nails are just so quick and easy to do, with many different finishes now available.
Use my discount code BABX31 over on the Born Pretty Store website and you can keep up to date with them on Facebook,

Charlies Nail Art

Cherry Nail Art

With the weather getting warmer for this Bank Holiday weekend, what better way to enjoy it than some nice refreshing fruit nails, and these cute Cherry Charms from Charlies Nail Art are just perfect. They come in pink and red with green stem detail, you get 2 charms that have a flat back and measure 7mm x 7mm for only 35p.
How cute do they look! So to my nails,  I started with a white base and with red polish added pairs of dots to represent cherries, added green stem detail and a white highlight. I left gaps on 2 nails and when I applied a matte top coat I added the pink cherry charms.
Even with a flat back the stuck really well and really completed this look. Such a pretty Summer mani, while we still have some warm sunny days!

You can also find Charlies Nail Art over on
FacebookInstagram and Twitter, plus don't forget to use my discount code BNM15 when you place an order.

Nail Art UK

Abstract Swirl Water Decals 

It's the first time since Sunday that I actually was able to do my nails! Been looking after my granddaughter and with the school holidays all my time was taken playing all day. 
It was so nice to be sitting at my table with the smell of polish and polish remover lol.
I have some more water decals from Nail Art UK, a full sheet of individual swirly designs, that you could also use as a full nail look.
For my mani I chose to use these to cover half of each nail. It's hard to explain but you will understand what I mean when you see my photos.
I started with a full white base and when totally dry I added striping tape and painted with a bright pink colour, removed the tape to get a crisp clean line. Applied the water decals and then the black lines.
So bright and something different, and I wanted to show you another way to use water decals.

Born Pretty Store

Neon Dip Powder 

I have another dip powder today, this time from Born Pretty Store. I know I've been reviewing a few different dip powders just lately, but I absolutely love them, and though these Born Pretty pots are small, they are packed with powder and I can still dip my long nails!
A gorgeous bright pink with a subtle shimmer.
You can find this on Aliexpress and the 
Born Pretty Store item number 46667-7.
Doesn't look much in the pot, but just look once it's on my nails!
Almost has a jelly finish, and so pretty and vibrant. My bad as I only thought this was neon, I wasn't aware it was a fluorescent dip powder. But still extremely beautiful.
You can watch my video using this dip powder below.

Charlies Nail Art

Hawaiian Flower Decals 

How I love the warm sunny weather! I'm a summer person and sadly the season is slowly coming to an end. But these water decal, full nail wraps from Charlies Nail Art, are perfect for sunny days at the beach or a holiday. 
I have actually never left the UK, I don't even own a passport!
These Hawaiian Floral decals are just 89p and so cheerful and detailed. I painted my nails with a white base, although this is not needed. As my nails are on the long side lol I had to use the decals at different angles to fit, but they still look absolutely stunning. With most floral looks I prefer a matte finish.

You could also use these for a accent nail if you don't fancy a full set across your nails.
FacebookTwitter and Instagram are the best places to also find Charlies Nail Art. So many gorgeous items with great customer service and fast delivery.
Stay safe and much love....

Nail Art UK

Purple Flower Decals 

Nail Art UK stocks many fabulous items from nail stickers, water decals to nail vinyls and stamping plates. Today I have some very pretty purple flower water decals.
The look I create was inspired by a picture I saw on the Nail Art UK instagram page, but instead of doing a solid base colour I did a gradient. 
These Purple Flowers come in different sizes, and I applied 3 to each nail as you will see below, and I finished with a matte top coat.

I actually received so many compliments while out getting some milk! I must admit I really do love how this looks. The purple flowers over my purple to white gradient and the matte finish is just perfect.

Born Pretty Store

Neon Stamping Polish 

Today I have a review for Born Pretty but instead of from their website the items are from Amazon. 
I've been doing lots of dip powder just lately as I do love it! But before I share those items with you, I have first 2 neon stamping polishes.
The pink is called Look Back and I stamped over white with BP L050.
This neon red stamps with a pink tone, again using BP L050. It's called Wondering.
I then wanted to see how these were at not only a base colour but for reverse stamping. So I painted 2 coats of Look Back as an accent and used both fmto colour in this rose image from plate BP L067.
Here you can see the actual neon red, and both shades look gorgeous together. I added some bling, as well....why not!
You can also find these polishes over on the Born Pretty Store website, Look Back item number 46659-5 and Wondering item number 46659-7. There are also other shades available.
So if you do get these from their website, please remember to use my discount code BABX31.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are all the place you can also find Born Pretty .
Stay safe and much love....
