Vivien Kondor

New Gel Polishes 

I have an exciting post today, as I'm sharing some colours from the new gel polishes from 
Vivien Kondor. This gel polish collection is the 3rd new release and there are 36 fabulous pigmented colours and a 4 bottle preparation, all 15ml bottles. 
First off there is a PH Prep, then a Bonding Gel, Base Coat and a Non Wipe Top Coat. 
You apply the PH Prep first and allow to air dry for 30 seconds, then apply the Bonding Gel and allow this to dry for 30 seconds. The base coat and non wipe top coat cure for 30 seconds LED and 60 seconds UV. The shades have a coloured top to make it easier to see the colour. They are vegan friendly, cruelty free with a high shine, last up to 3 weeks and easy soak off.
This is called Flamenco, a super bright pink with purple undertones. Applied so smoothly and self leveling, and just look how pigmented it is! You can check out my video review at the end of this post. 
Next up is Cobalt Blue, one of my favourite colours, with a slight jelly finish and such a vibrant colour.
Purple Violet is such a pretty purple, with pink undertones.
Lastly is Pastel Pink, a light girly shade.
My first impressions of these gels, I can say I'm super impressed. They have hardly to no smell, cure quickly with easy soak off removal. Apply nicely and highly pigmented, also a great range of colours, and are only £7.99.
One thing I wanted to try is some nail art. So I applied 1 coat of Flamenco and cured, then applied a second coat, but didn't cure. I added some small stripes of Cobalt Blue and Pastel Pink, then cured and top coated.

If you love gel, I highly recommend these, be sure to check out the full collection over on the Vivien Kondor website, and don't forget to use my discount code below.

Stay safe and much love....
Although I haven't worn gel due my allergic reaction a few years ago, I was more than happy to try these gels at my own risk.

Moyou Nails Fashion

New XL Stamper 

Another busy week ahead, after a mixed weekend and the school holidays have flown past so quickly!
At last I have the long awaited XL Stamper from Moyou Nails Fashion, which I tested with their Vintage 6 plate and black stamping polish. 
To see the stamper in action and my thoughts, check out my video review below.

And here are the looks I created...
I also received this gorgeous green called Atlantic Green.
Here I stamped the lace image and coloured half of the image using Powder Blue, then stamped onto half of my nail to create this 2 toned look.
The black is just awesome and paired with some simple silver stamping looks gorgeous.

I absolutely love the Moyou Nails Fashion polishes, they are highly pigmented, dry fast and just amazing for gradients/ombre nails! The stamping plates are so detailed and have some great designs. The stamper worked well with no priming.

Charlies Nail Art

Hexagon Glitter 

Can you believe another month is also over? Me either, yet plod along we must!
I'm sure by now you are aware that Friday is my day for my Charlies Nail Art reviews.
And today I have some hexagon glitter, it comes in 26 different colours and holographic 1mm hexagon glitter in a 3g resealable bag for 99p. I have the shade Caramel. 
Just look how gorgeous this is and the awesome rainbow sparkle.
I started with a black base colour and with a clear polish I stuck the hexagon glitters on one by one! Obviously working on one nail at a time lol, and yes it made my eyes go funny after a while! But the finished effect is just stunning. I used a stamper to roll over my nails to make sure the glitter was laying flat and then applied 2 layers of topcoat.

The way these sparkled when the sun hit the glitters was like a disco ball, and just super pretty.
As always my discount code BNM15 is available for you to use over on the Charlies Nail Art website. Keep up to date with them too over on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

Born Pretty Store

Pearl Matte Polish

Hello everyone! Following on from last week's post, I'm here with the other pearl matte polish
This shade is so beautiful and called Just at First Sight. It's a pretty pink colour, with glitters and a pearlescent finish.
I'm also trying out the Pink peel off latex too.
So to start my swatch below is 2 coats and no top coat. Such a gorgeous finish and easily a 1 coater as it's so pigmented. Applied nicely and not overly thick. Check out my quick video on Instagram.
I then painted the pink latex around my nails. It dries quickly to an almost transparent pink. I then stamped using a BP plate and black stamping polish. The latex peeler off in one go, and really help with the clean up!
 I top coated to protect the stamping.  Such a stunning look using all these Born Pretty Store items.

IZ Beauty of London

Stickers and Studs

Hi all, just a quick post today as I'm off out later, and need to get some bits ready before I go. All will be revealed soon...
I have some fun nail stickers and gold studs from IZ Beauty of London. The polish I used is called Ball Gown and one I swatched and reviewed a while ago.
Monochrome nail stickers and Gold Circle Studs, I thought would look great together with the rose gold polish as a base colour. I first applied the stickers to my nails, then with top coat added a gold circle stud.

Certainly a fun and different look, and the range of different items from these sticker, nail studs and polishes is amazing, so be sure to head over to the IZ Beauty of London website and take a look.
You can also find them on Facebook,

EC Cosmetics

Air Dry Gel Polishes 

Hey guys, hope you are well. So over the weekend my phone did a system update to the latest version of Android. Not only has it taken me some time to get used to the changes, my predictive text was completely wiped! Boo as it helped my write my blog posts...
Anywho, I'm back today with some more peelable Air Dry Gel polishes from EC Cosmetics .
Both red, but one has a shimmer finish and the other larger silver glitters. Check out my video at the end of this post to see how they apply and peel off.
First up is shade number A455, this is packed with shimmer and silver glitter which is dispersed nicely through the polish. First coat was a little sheer, but a second coat was fully opaque.
The other shade, number A537 is my favourite, such a rich colour and applied so easy. The finish is just gorgeous.
For drying time, and to help dry quicker I held my fingers in front of a fan. These peelable polishes dry a lot quicker than others I have! As to the peelable part, I only wore each colour for 10 minutes before removing, and although they peeled off easily, I should imagine that if they were worn for long, that they would peel off in one go. Check out my video to see what I mean.

You can find the full range of these Air Dry Gel polishes over on the EC Cosmetics website.
You can also find and follow them on
FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
I also have a code for you all, if you enter 'tbellew18' you will get $1 off your order.
Stay safe and much love......

Regular Polish Swatch

The start of the last week of the school holidays and just a quick post today as I want to make the most of the lovely weather before it disappears lol.
Also my last post for Momo, on the final regular nail polish. This one has a name and is called Coffee. You can find Momo and these polishes over on Aliexpress.
A gorgeous nude creme that was so nice to apply and very pigmented. Swatched with 2 coats and no top coat.
This time round I tried stamping with shade 812, which I swatched last time, and another stunning finish and high quality polish from Momo.
Check out my quick swatch video on my Instagram, and check out Momo on
Instagram and YouTube.
Stay safe and much love.....

Charlies Nail Art

Full Nail Wraps 

So it's Good Friday and Easter weekend, and the weather has been so nice, sunny warm!
Nothing special planned, just a lazy time that's so well needed...
Charlies Nail Art are on holiday but you can still purchase from their website and orders will be posted on Monday 29th April. 
Back to my review on these full nail wraps.
These Pink Flower Cluster wraps are so pretty, and cost just 89p. You don't need a base colour either. As my nails are getting longer, this type of decal is perfect with the same design on each section, and that they are joined together. I used the full strip to cover my entire nail.

Just so beautiful and perfect for this warmer weather. You can use my discount code BNM15 over on the Charlies Nail Art website, for these and all the other great items from Charlies Nail Art.

Have a great weekend and as always stay safe and much love....

Born Pretty Store

Pearlescent Matte Series 

So the other day I received a parcel from Born Pretty Store that I wasn't expecting. I knew they were kindly sending me items to try out, other than my review package. But what I got wasn't what I was told I'd be getting, if that makes sense!
Inside were 2 polishes from the Pearlescent Matte Series, and a skin guard liquid latex.
While I'm patiently waiting for my review items I thought I share these with you. Also be sure to check out my quick video review too.
This is called Drop in Ocean, item number 45573, BP-PM04. I just love the frosted glass bottle and such a beautiful colour that's highly pigmented. Application was nice and this is easy a 1 coater. My first photo shows the beautiful pearl matte finish.
Then I added a glossy topcoat.
All in all a stunning polish and I'm so happy I received it and can't wait to try the other colour from the same collection.

FacebookInstagram and Twitter are the best places to see all the great items you can buy using my code BABX31 to get 10% off your order over on the Born Pretty Store website.

She Modern

Foil Water Decals and Pigments 

Hey all, I have a fun and exciting look to share with you all today using items from She Modern. I've some 2 colour floral foil water decals and 2 pigments.
She Modern has a stunning selection of foil water decals and Pigments, if you not had a look, head on over to their website and take a look.
I stupidly deleted the pic of the items I used, but if you take a look at my video review, you will see.
But for now here's a look at my finished mani, under artificial lighting and natural daylight. 
I applied foil glue to my nails and sponged on the pigments the added the flowers water decals. Added some black freehand stripes and top coated with a water based top coat.

I absolutely love how this came out and that both decals and Pigments work beautifully together.
