Charlies Nail Art

Nightmare Before Christmas 

Ok here's an admittion. I've never actually watched the Nightmare before Christmas! I've heard of the film and will try and watch it this year. 
Amongst the Halloween items I have to review were these Jack Skelton face charms. They come in black or white, measure 5mm x 7mm with a curved back for only 49p.
My inspiration for my mani was taken from other characters from the film. As I've been more freehand than normal just lately, I thought it would be perfect to go with the Halloween charms. First time I've ever freehand painted a face, so please be kind lol.
Here's my Halloween look inspired by the Nightmare before Christmas.

I applied the charm with top coat, and the curved back was perfect for it to lay flat and adhere well.
For these or any other Halloween Nail items be sure to check out the Charlies Nail Art website and use my discount code BNM15 to get 15% off your order. Please be aware that they have annual leave soon so make sure you order your Halloween items soon.

Moyou Nails Fashion

XL Stamping Plate 

Hope you are well, not much to report today lol.
I'm here with my last XL Stamping plate from Moyou Nails Fashion for a while anyway, as hopefully soon they should be getting some brand new plates, and I can't wait to share them with you all as soon as I receive them!
For now though today's plate is from the Trendy Collection.
Trendy 4 has some cute singular images and 9 full nail images. I have created 3 different manis using various designs from this plate, also using various Moyou Nails Fashion polishes and clear stamper.
For my first look, I made a reverse stamped decal with the unicorn. On my other nails I used the bottom corner full nail image, as it reminded me of unicorn sprinkles!
My second mani, again is using the full nail image that looks like a brick wall and making reverse stamped decals to make a graffiti mani.
Finally making reverse stamped decals with 2 of the cute cactus images.
So many ways to use this plate makes it a great one to have in your collection.

Born Pretty Store

Holo Dipping Powder

Well hey there! My granddaughter started nursery yesterday, back at the same school her Mum went to, and the one I walked to every day for 18 years! Its going to feel weird doing that walk again lol.
Today cindy hand is ready to show you all the last brand new Dip Powder from Born Pretty Store I have. This shade is called Starry Night and is a stunning silver holographic. Item number 43322_9.
Again I used this with the Nail Glue and my own dip powder liquids. Application is so easy and this shade is just so beautiful.

Sadly as no sun, I took a pic under artificial light to try and show you all the awesome holo quality.
Check out my YouTube for Dip Powder application videos, and though these are small pots, they are packed full and I definitely recommend them.

Kads Stamping Plates

Layered Stamping

A bit later than I was hoping to post, but I'm here with my thoughts and review of the Kads stamping plates I purchased from aliexpress. 
I have not only created a few looks, but have a video for you to watch (if you want to!)
Like the stamping polishes, I purchased these from the official Kads seller over on aliexpress.
I love the brown protective sleeves, and each plate had 2 layers of the blue film.
I nice mix of layering plates that are etched well. Here's my first attempt with the leaves on Natutre 006.
Love the butterflies on plate Nature 001.
Finally to the mani I created in my video using
Geometry 005.

If I can remember these plates were about £2 each, which is fantastic for a layering plate. I know I'm gonna have fun playing with these!
Stay safe and much love....

Special Nails

Freehand Water Colour

Hello all, today is a special day for me as it would have been my Mum's birthday, bless she would have been 74, passed away too soon. She was so special, funny and there for anyone whenever they needed anything. She even retained her sense of humour even when she was really ill.
If you've been following me for a while, then you'll know I always do a special nail art in her memory.  Below is a professional photo taken with my eldest daughter (who is now 26!)
The past few weeks I've been practicing free hand water colour, ready for today. 
Inspired by Kseniiakupina on YouTube I created my mani using some new Gouache paints. I'd love to one day have the same paints that she uses, but they are quite expensive!

I added some bling and so happy with how this looks, a perfect birthday tribute.
These are the Gouache paints and I'll do a video on them very soon.
Thank you all so much for stopping by.
Stay safe and much love....

Charlies Nail Art

Halloween Nail Wraps 

Can you believe that another week over? Why does time go so fast as you get older, but life doesn't become any easier!!
Rant over and back to today's review on these Halloween water decals from Charlies Nail Art.
The Devil Calls are a pack of 10 different size full nail water decals for only 89p.
With a yellow and orange gradient, the black detail stands out on these decals, and I like how each is different yet creates a spooky scene across your nails. As my nails are rather long, I find these are too small, but don't let that put you off. With some similar coloured polishes I was able to fill in the parts were the water decals didn't fit. Protected with a matte finish, this Halloween mani was super easy to do.

BNM15 is my Discount code that you can use over on the Charlies Nail Art website, please take note that they are on annual leave soon so make sure you order your Halloween items soon.

Vivien Kondor

Halloween Patchwork 

Hi guys, just a quick post from me today. With September whizzing past, will soon be in a new month and seeing more and more Halloween mani's. After the amazing feedback on my Back to School nails using Vivien Kondor Permeable Henna Polishes, I wanted to created a quick and simply Patchwork Halloween look using the Argon Oil polishes.
So I picked my 3 colours, Royal Purple, Lime Green and Orange Twist and over a white base painted sections of each nail. Added detail with black acrylic paint and finished with the Argon Oil Matte top coat. 

Such a quick look to create with 3 Halloween shades, the stitch detail really brings the mani together.
You can find the full Argon Oil Collection over on the Vivien Kondor website, please use my discount code tracey20 should you treat yourselves to these amazing polishes!
You can also keep up to date with them on

Moyou Nails Fashion

Script Stamping 

Rather a slow week here, plodding along and really feeling poop! I need the Summer back...
Anywho, today I have another review on an XL Stamping plate from Moyou Nails Fashion.
This plate has one of my favourite images on...Script.
I absolutely love how versatile script stamping can be. Along with a few extra designs of polka dots, numbers and a musical notes, this is an awesome plate from the Urban Collection.
For my first look I used the news paper style image to create an old fashion news paper.
My second look is over a purple to white gradient and stamped with the scribble text. I added some floral water decals.
Lastly for all you music lovers this sheet music image is so fun!
The 'sayings images all stamp perfectly too!
A nicely etched plate with some fab designs. All my looks were made using various Moyou Nails Fashion polishes, they work well for a base colour and stamping!

Kads Stamping Polishes

Aliexpress Purchase 

I'm rather late with this post, though it's a review, the items have been purchased by myself from Aliexpress. My daughter is home from her holiday and will be coming over layer to show off her lovely sun tan!
So back to all things nail related, as well as buying Zjoy polishes and plates, I also bought Kads stamping polishes and plates. 2 separate orders but from the Official Kads seller on Aliexpress. I'm sharing the polishes first and the plates very soon in a separate post.
As like with my review on the Zjoy, I've done a video, and stamped on my beautifully painted spoons!! You can see each polish stamps well over both black and white.
If you want to see me stamp these then check out my video below.

If not and you like how they look in my photo, plus you want or need new stamping polishes, then I'd recommend these Kads ones. Delivery only took 12 days from ordering to the UK.
Stay safe and much love

Born Pretty Store

Brand new Dipping Powder

If you have been following me for a while, you'll know I love my dip powders. When I saw that Born Pretty Store released their own dipping powders I knew I had to try out a few.
So for my latest review parcel I have 2 of the latest dip powders, the only thing I did notice is that at the moment Born Pretty Store have no base, activator or top coat (the dip powder liquids) so I also asked for some nail glue to try with these powders.
For the first I've made a video tutorial, but the application is the same as any other dip powder. 
The first shade is called Autumn Light.
The pots are smaller than I was expecting, but I was still able to dip my long nails, you could always sprinkle the powder over though.
Also pictured is the Nail glue.
Nice to see the dip powder us seal protected so no spillage in shipping.

A nice delicate neutral shade that would be perfect for a base with a white to create a french mani.

If you watch my video, you'll see the glue was good for the first dip application  but dries fast so I had to changed to my other dip powder base.
FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to find and keep up to date with Born Pretty Store, and if you make a purchase please use my discount code BABX31.
Stay safe and much love....
