Charlies Nail Art Review

3D Clock Charms

Image from Google.
Well can you believe it's the last day of 2015! Hope you all have had a happy holiday, and have a safe New York. This is also my last review for this year for Charlies Nail Art and I knew straight away when I was sent these charms I was going to save them for this special New Years Mani.
For 89p you get 4 3D Clock Charms that are super cute, incredibly detailed and measure about 8 mm. 

So after doing a black to silver gradient,  I stamped some fireworks and the London Skyline, then added the clock charm with topcoat. It suits this mani so well, and what a great way to see out 2015 and welcome 2016.

As always if you like these or any nail art items from Charlies Nail Art, use my discount code below. And you can find them on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

I'd also like to take this time to thank you all for your continued support over this year, and here's hoping 2016 is another great year for nails!
Whatever way you are seeing the New Year in, stay safe, have a great time and much love xxx

Charlies Nail Art Review

3D Rose Nail Art

Hope you all had a great Christmas yesterday. Mine was amazing with all the family and my granddaughters 1st Christmas, we made it a special day.
Today's mani is super easy to do yet so pretty. Charlies Nail Art has some very nice items that can make any manicure look special. These 3D Ceramic Roses are just 49p for 6 and come in a mix of white and pinks, also very detailed. 

So to use these I created a pink and white diagonal gradient and attached the roses with topcoat to my thumb and ring finger.

So delicate and feminine and I love how they look together rather than singular on each nail. My 10 % discount code is below.

Till next time stay safe and much love...

Moyou Nails

New Metallic Polishes 

I wasn't planning to do this post as quickly as this, but I took advantage of the sun  making an appearance and brightening up what was a dull sky. I will be using these polishes in my future reviews with the Square Stamping Plates from Moyou Nails, but for now I have just swatched them.

They look stunning in the bottles, let's see what they look like painted.
First up is Emperor's Gold, a warm metallic copper shade. Highly pigmented and only needed one coat. It's such a pretty golden colour and would be perfect for anytime of the year. 

Majestic Violet is a beautiful highly pigmented metallic purple. Such an amazing colour, super pretty and only needed one coat. This would look stunning stamped over black.

Celestial Blue is another highly pigmented metallic polish is a gorgeous deep sea blue. This is just the perfect colour, deep and mystifying. Another one coater polish too!

Mystic Stone is a bold darker metallic silver polish, than say a normal silver polish. Amazing pigmentation, the brush strokes are an error on my part.

Lastly we have Crimson Sky, a pretty sunset pink and such an amazing shade. This would also look gorgeous over black polish, also a one coater.

All in all I'm super impressed with all of these metallic polishes. All highly pigmented, all one coaters and great to wear as a normal polish or to stamp with.
Here is my quick test on paper...

As you can see they also stamp perfectly. I used the Moyou Nails Rectangular Stamper and plate 222.

Use my discount code above to get 20 % off your order.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the places you can keep up to date with Moyou Nails, and I hope you find this post helpful if you were wondering what these polishes were like.
I will be here on the 4th January with my next Square Plate review.
Stay safe and much love....

Moyou Nails Square Stamping Plate

Square Stamping Plate 404

The next plate in the new Square Plate collection from Moyou Nails is number 404. This plate is another with a great mix of images from world city skylines to floral and even an image that reminded me of a water spotted marble mani. You can see plate 404 here and the Moyou Polishes I use here.

I had a few issues with the skylines, but I think a different stamper would work. Saying that, the images all still picked up on the Moyou Nails rectangular stamper. I also noticed that there was a duplicate image on this plate, that's also on plate 403.

Still a very pretty plate and here are the mani's I created. 

This last one is personally my favourite, as I mentioned earlier this image looks like a spotted water marble and the black over the pink just looks amazing. My discount code is below and will get you 20%  off your order.

I'm going to take a well earned week off before I completely burn out and will be back in the New Year with plate 405.
Thank you so much for stopping by and also check out Moyou Nails on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
Till next time stay safe and much love....

Festive Sweaters

Christmas Nails with a Difference 

I'm sure as it's coming to the end of the year, and I've been super busy with reviews that I'm on a slow down. I know we all get those times when we have no umph to do anything! Well that's me today and what don't help either is I had no clue what to do for this prompt in Clairestelle8 Holiday Nails IG challenge. My inspiration has come from Claire herself. So my Festive Sweater Nails are something you possibly wouldn't expect.
I'm not too sure myself if I like them, and think they resemble wrapping paper more than a jumper.
I love this gradient though...

I stamped with Moyou Nails Blue and Pink polish.

So what do you think? Maybe it's because they are not true Christmas colours, maybe it's just me lol.
Have a great weekend and till next time stay safe and much love....

Charlies Nail Art Review

3D Ribbon Bows 

Hello beautiful readers, hope I find you well. If like me your super busy, so many things to do and not enough hours in the day! Anyway my Charlies Nail Art review is for some super cute 3D Ribbon Bows. They come in 5 different colours for £1.00. I was sent the pink ones.

They photographed dark than they actually are, and I didn't even realise that the pink polish I used matched these bows perfectly.

I'm really liking the look of this mani, and the bow stuck firmly to my nail just with topcoat. This is definitely a nail art I would wear for an evening out, or anytime as I don't want to remove it!! My discount code is BNM10 and will get you 10% of your order.

Moyou Nails Square Stamping Plate

Square Stamping Plate 403

Hello to you all, and I'm here with my weekly reviews for Moyou Nails new Square Stamping Plates. So far from my previous reviews, these plates are amazing, great choice of images that are etched really well and pick up perfectly on a stamper.
Today's plate is number 403, the floral one from this collection. I loved it a soon as I saw it and couldn't wait to do this review. You can find the Moyou Nails Polishes I use here.

How awesome are all these images! A good mix of flowers, leaves and the peacock and birds are super cute. All stamp really well. Again even with this plate I was able to double stamp on my nails. So these plates are great for long and short nails. I only double stamp as I find it too hard to stretch an image to make it bigger. 

The last image just reminded me of a China Plate so only fitting I stamped in blue!

For my final mani I made stamped decals. I really like this image and wowzers, when I placed the decals on my nails, cleaned up and top coated, I didn't ever want to take it off! You know what I mean, one of those mani's you do and you think 'I'm in love! '

So there you have it. I'm really liking these plates, if you do too then use my 20 % discount code traceysp.

You can find Moyou Nails on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. Join me next Monday for plate 404.
Staysafe and much love....
