Beauty Big Bang

Purple Chrome

Hi friend's, I'm laying in bed writing this post at 3.30am! Yes you read right! Unable to sleep due to the extreme cold weather that's not only bought snow but gave me my cold back :( So while I'm laying here watching the snow fall, I thought I'd write today' blog post.
Beauty Big Bang has some very lovely items, one of which is this Mermaid Mirror Chrome, it comes in a pretty purple and you get 0.5g of product. 
You can see how muted this pigment looks, and the slight sparkle it has but don't let this deceive you. I mean look at the stunning finish over regular black polish.

Then I mixed some pigment with my clear water based polish and painted over my nails for a shimmer effect.

You can see that here in my quick video.

Both results are equally beautiful and a nice plus different way to use pigment powders.

My Favourite Polishes Part 3

My Own Indies

Hey all. Well the just lately the weather here has been horrid. Super cold and on and off snow showers! Not my weather at all!
Continuing on with my favourite polishes, I have today 5 Indies I made myself way back in 2015! Something I wanted to try, not that I was expecting it to take off, but for me personally. 
The first 3 are all one coater's and also stamp really well.
Green on Me has a pearly shimmer finish and a mid green almost turquoise. Smooth application and quick drying time.

Steel Blue Waters is again a pearl shimmer that stamps so well as does Green on Me. I love the shade of this and how smooth a finish it has.

Purple Berry Smoothie is not too dark in colour, and a rich looking. Stamps nicely and another smooth finish.

Next up are the 2 special polishes I created for my granddaughter, and in memory of my Mum.
Millie-rose is a girly pink with scattered holo and perfect for my granddaughters name! Swatched with 2 coats and top coat.

Lastly Forever in my Heart, made in memory of my Mum, and a pretty red scattered holo. Perfect rose red and one I'm sure my Mum would have loved.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I'm not sure if I'll have another for next week. I'll have to search through my stash!
Stay safe and much love.....

Born Pretty Store

Petal Water Decals 

Hi all, hope everyone had a nice weekend. 
Nothing to say about mine, lol as it was rather boring! So much so that I contemplated sorting out my polish stash, but even that was too much ha ha.
So from my previous post on the pink petal water decals from Born Pretty Store, I'm here with the purple ones.
219 is exacty the same design just in a different pastel shade. So I basically did a similar base, starting of with white and sponging on a pastel lilac in random spots.

Such a super delicate Spring look, the blues and purples compliment so well.
Now also from my previous post I said I'd try both colours together. And what an amazing mani.
I wanted a different base than keep doing white, so my purple to pink gradient works so well. Such detail in each flower and floating petals, they are such beautiful decals.
Don't forget my discount code and as per
FacebookTwitter and Instagram are where you can also find Born Pretty Store.
Stay safe and much love....

Charlies Nail Art

Fairy Nails

Well here we are again, another week done and dusted, and another month almost over!!
But on a brighter note, yes for the warmer weather to come, and it can't come quick enough for me lol.
Today I have some Fairy Stickers from Charlies Nail Art, and they remind me of Tinkerbell. They cost just 99p and are in a black silhouette with silver detail. 
I like how you also get the shooting stars and other designs on this sheet and all in different sizes. I also thought they looked super pretty in the pink packaging, so I went for this as my base colour and used a shimmer topcoat for a touch of added sparkle.

A very girly look, and would be perfect for little nails fir a fairy/princess party. They adhere well even to my curved nails, and are pretty thin, as I'm one to pick at a sticker should it not stick properly! Protected with a layer of topcoat.
You can find Charlies Nail Art on Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter, and if you place an order don'tforget to use my discount code BNM15.

Moyou Nails Fashion

XL Stamping Plate

How are you all this Wednesday? I'm good, though hubby is still off work waiting on more test results! But I don't bore you with my life.
I have today the next Ethnic stamping plate in the collection from Moyou Nails Fashion
Plate 2 is a nice mix of singular floral and full nail tribal images.
As per I've created three totally different looks using this plate. Mine personally is the last as just lately I'm loving bling mani's. 
So for my first I did some reverse stamped decals with a few different images.

Next up you can't beat a matte black stamped look, and the silver makes this so classy.

And finally, I just love all the intricate details in these flowers, and over my white to pink gradient with the added rhinestones, I love everything about this mani.

All polishes used, apart by from the matte topcoat are from Moyou Nails Fashion.
I have plate 3 left to share with you some time next week. 
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to keep to find Moyou Nails Fashion.

My Favourite Polishes Part 2

Perfect Holographic 

Well hello there! I'll get right into this post as it's a bit nostalgic for me. You see when I first starting painting my nails, my budget wasn't the best and I was seeing all these beautiful pictures on Facebook of holographic polishes! I really wanted to get some for myself, and went hunting on the web. I found some from a Bulgarian website that when currency converted only cost 88p a bottle! I watched swatch videos on YouTube and the holographic quality was amazing! My first ever blog post was about these holographic polishes from a brand called Perfect. I managed to get the full set of 8 colours, but now all these years on I don't think they are available anymore. 
Today I have picked my 4 favourite shades from the 8. I'll add the quick video I took all those years ago so you can see the beauty of these on my swatch wheel.
Sadly these have no names, just numbers. I tried my best to capture the true beauty of the holo when the sun made an appearance, but have taken pics in artificial light too.
So we start with H4, a stunning blue. Oh and I forgot to mention these are all once coater holos, but I did two coats plus a topcoat, and you don't get and dragging or streaking like some holo polish application can.

But how awesome does this look with a quick frying time too!
H3 is like a beige/pink and such a pretty neutral shade

H7 is a super lush purple and the holo goodness is just jaw dropping!

Lastly H8 the final colour from the whole collection and a truly stunning pink.

If you can find these anywhere, I'd really recommend you get them, especially if you just love all things holo.

I hope your enjoying the start of these type of posts and I'm looking forward to bringing you the next.
Stay safe and much love.....

Beauty Big Bang

Holographic Chameleon Flakies

Howdy all, hope you are all good. Back to the school routine now, I really can' wait for the mornings to get lighter as I've got back into makeup and my mirror light does give enough light lol I got some new bits for my birthday as well as new polishes.
If you've been following me for a while, you'll know I do love pigments and flakies now I've found a great way to still wear them over regular polish, and this Holo Chameleon from
Beauty Big Bang is just lush. You get 0.2g of product in a little pot with a sponge tipped applicator. 
Check out my video below to see the application over regular black polish and using tacky base and water based topcoat.

Excuse my pinky finger not playing nicely in my photos lol, but this flakie is super gorgeous and so sparkly. The holo twinkle is just amazing.
