Charlies Nail Art Review

Dream Catcher Nails

Wow what a week, and thank cruchie it's Friday! Though no lay in over this weekend as it's an early F1. I don't mind really as I hate waiting for the races to start.
So today I have some super cute dream catcher nails I created using these water decals from Charlies Nail Art.
This sheet is full of stunning and detailed singular decals and is only 99p. I carefully cut the ones I wanted to use for each nail. They really didn't need long in water and enough slide to for perfect placement. I applied over regular white nail polish and Silver chrome pigment also from Charlies Nail Art.
Here's how they look on my newly shortened nails....

A very detailed look that was super easy to create, and I think the pearly base works so well for this mani. As always my discount code is available for you to use. And why not go and check out Charlies Nail Art over on Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter.
Join me next Friday for the start of my Halloween reviews for Charlies Nail Art.
Until then, stay safe and much love....

Kiara Sky

Dipped Powder Nails

Hi guys, just a short post today, as I'm off out all day! If you remember I mention I'm doing something exciting, well today's the day!! 
With these Kiara Sky dipping powders and their new dip powder recycling system  I'll be here over the next few weeks sharing these items with you all. Today I have used 2 of the powders.

I used Black to Black which is a solid creme and Pixie Dust a beautiful golden glitter.
Each nail has a different look, yet all compliment each other.

Creating the chevron and striped look was tricky and I still need more practise, but over all I love how this mani turned out, and how easy these dipping powders are to use.

Nicole Diary

Multi Chrome Rhinestones 

Hi guys, it's the start of a super exciting week, and all will be revealed very soon! Hope you are all well and had a good weekend. 
Today I have more bling nails to show you that I created using these stunning Multi Chrome Rhinestones from Nicole Diary, who you can find over on either or Aliexpress.
They come in a cute wheel with a nice mix of both sizes and colour finishes. Flat backed and about 120 pieces.
I opted for a pink base colour to which I applied some mermaid pigment, and attached multiple rhinestones to each nail around the cuticle. The flat back helped them to stick with just topcoat,  but of course nail glue or gel would also work too.

The colour shift from these rhinestones was truly stunning in person. And each a nice size to work with and fit together on nails.
Facebook and Instagram is where you can also find Nicole Diary.

Born Pretty Store

Unicorn Mermaid Powder

Hello lovely people, how are you all? I'm great thanks, and here today with this beautiful powder from Born Pretty Store. Just a quick post as I'm super busy today.
So I have shade NH 02 in this Unicorn Mermaid Neon Pigment, and like all powders in comes in a little pot. You'll see in my video you don't get much, but a little really does go a long way! I applied this pigment over a regular blue polish and tacky top coat. The effect once burnished is just amazing, even for normal nail polish.

I found after patting on my nails with the sponge applicator and gently rubbing into the tacky topcoat, using my fingertip to burnish worked really well.
BABX31 is my 10% discount code, and you can also find Born Pretty on FacebookInstagram

Clear Jelly Stamper

Happy Birthday Mum

It's not like me to post on a Sunday, but if you've been following me for a while you will know that I always do a special mani in memory of my Mum's birthday. Bless her, if she was still with us today she would have been 73 ♡
Although I've used items from Clear Jelly Stamper, this isn't a full review. I will go more in-depth in a future post. 
I used plate Cjs 37 and The big bling stamper to create my special mani with a beautiful mix of roses and butterflies.
Just the perfect look, as it matches a few tattoos I have that tell a story about my Mum (to me anyway)

That's all for today, as I said I'll be back with a full review on this plate very soon. For now thank you for stopping by and as always stay safe, much love....

Charlies Nail Art

Oval Gem Nails

Autumn officially starts today in the UK. Boo! Don't get me wrong I love all the autumnal colours and mani's, it just the weather I don't like! So I'm going to try and fit a few more summery looks in, and that brings me nicely to today's review for Charlies Nail Art. I love all things bling and these Silver Oval Gems are right up my street. For 69p you get a cute bag of 10 gems that have a flat back and measures 7mm x 5mm.
I was planning on applying one gem on each nail, but this was too plain for me. So I painted my nails with an almost dusky pink and layered 2 with glitter. The gem stuck well with just topcoat, the flat back helps, and for extra bling I placed some silver micro beads around the gem.

The sparkle from the cut of this gem is beautiful, and the whole look works so well. Just the right amount of bling!
As always the best places to find Charlies Nail Art are FacebookInstagram and Twitter. Plus my 15% discount code is there for you to use on any order you make.

Floral and script water decals 

Hey peeps, hope your all doing well. Things here are hectic as usual, that atm I don't know if I'm coming or going!! 
Anywho these full nail water decals from 
Milvart that I've been wearing for a few days are a great mix to end Summer and start Autumn, the flowers and script design works so well.
N635 looks best over a white base, it helps the colour transparency of the design pop. Like all Milvart decals, these don't need long in water, have enough slide for perfect placement and look great once top coated. For this one I thought a matte look was perfect.

Facebook and Instagram are the places you can find Milvart, and for an easy to create mani go check out the fantastic range of water decals on the Milvart website.
Stay safe and much love.....

Beauty Big Bang

Aurora Pigment 

It's all go go go here. Trying to get everything prepared this week, leaving me free for a day next week. All will be revealed soon :)
Anyway hope you are all well and thank you for stopping by to see my next post for Beauty Big Bang. Today I have 2 items that I've used together over different coloured regular polish. 
Aurora Pigment in green comes in this little pot with a sponge tip applicator for $2.39. Silicone tool is double ended and decorate with a bling handle for $1.99 and there are 5 different styles to choose from.
I painted my nails with a black, white, purple and blue polish, applied my tacky topcoat and patted the pigment over. Then gently burnished with the chisel end of the silicone tool. Once cleaned up I used use my water based top coat to seal.

You can see how well and easy the application was in my video below.

Born Pretty Store

Square Stamping Plate

Good day to you all. With the summer leaving us in the UK the evening getting darker earlier, and feeling colder, I'm not ready to let it go! It brings me nicely to this fun and cute stamping plate from Born Pretty Store
Sketches BP-X39 has 6 full nail images that are perfect for colouring in. Just like a kids colouring book. Nicely sizes and great detail. Etched well and stamped perfectly.
I used 4 of these designs to make a themed mani. In my mind the story is 'your so fed up with raining days you go for a drive, past the town, to the seaside, and watch the hot air balloons before driving home'. A matte top coat looked so much better than glossy. What do you think?

FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the usual places you can find and follow Born Pretty Store. And should you make an order please use my discount code BABX31.
Stay safe and much love....

Clear Jelly Stamper

Big Bling Stamper

Hello! This post was ment for the weekend, but life being life put a stop to that! So I'm starting this new week off with this post on some goodies I was kindly sent from Clear Jelly Stamper. The home of the original clear stamper. Now I'm not sure about you, but I have a draw full of different stampers, and my usual go to is my creative shop one. Well let's just say after trying out the Big Bling Stamper, this is now my go to one! 
So I also have 3 stamping polishes.
And these 2 layering stamping plates.
The Big Bling Stamper is packaged in a cute box and comes with a credit card style scraper. I was dubious to whether the stamper needed priming before use, but I just rolled it a few times over my lint roller and it worked perfectly. I'll admit it took a bit of practise scraping the polish from the plate to get the solid base images, but after a few tries I think I got the hang of it.
So using plate Ahoy Matey, I created pirate themed mani.

Layering the images was so much fun, and super duper easy with The Big Bling.
The feather image really caught my eye, so I stamped multiple feathers with some holo polishes. The Big Bling even picked these up so clean and crisp.

If you have not yet had to chance to try The Original Clear Jelly Stamper, I'd really recommend you do. Squishy enough for my curved nails, and super easy to layer multiple images. I'm so looking forward to trying the full nail floral images with the other plate.
You can find and follow Clear Jelly Stamper over on FacebookInstagramTwitter and
Stay safe and much love....
