With many new items now available on the 
Charlies Nail Art website, I'm here with some stunning Starfish charms. You get 4 golden charms that have a curved back, measure 8mm x 7mm and are only 69p.
The obvious choice to wear these charms, was to create a beach theme base. The curved back is perfect for a snug fit to nails and adhered well with just top coat

Such a detailed, pretty golden charms, at a great price. And you can also use my discount code BNM15 over on the Charlies Nail Art website.

Rossi Nails

Glitter Dip Powder 

Hey all, I really wasnt expecting to post today as I don't feel too great! Even though I had already used this pretty glitter dip powder from Rossi Nails, I didn't get round to write this post.
So just a quick one, but still informative.
Confetti is a glitter glam dip powder that's in a clear base. Its looks super sparkly and a pinky red colour.
The coverage would be perfect over a base colour, but like a dip topper! You could dip more times to get a fuller coverage, but depending on how thick you like your nails.
I dipped twice, and happy with the speckled finish. A different look and so pretty and sparkly one the top coat is applied.
I'm loving these Glam dip powders from Rossi Nails and can't wait to try the last 2 I have, so be sure to watch this space.

Nail Art UK

Stickers and Water Decals 

Hey guys, I have a new to me brand Nail Art UK who kindly sent me a beautiful selection of nail stickers and water decals. 
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing these with you, and to start I have these gorgeous, colourful Floral Nail Stickers.

A beautiful selection of different style flowers and they look perfect over a white base, as they are a transparent colour, the white base makes them pop. Also preferred this with a matte finish.

Then onto some pretty and delicate Heart Water Decals. The added dots and swirl hearts are so beautiful. I loved how they looked on the blue backing card, so applied them over a blue base and added some gems.

There is something special about blue and white nails, and these would look awesome over an ivory shade to make perfect wedding nails. These decals didn't need long in water and had enough slide for perfect placement.
I can't wait to try the others!

Born Pretty Store

Tri Thermal Holo Polishes 

Hope you had a nice weekend. I'm here with a quick post on the last 2 Tri Thermal holo polishes from Born Pretty Store.
From the last one I swatched, I was hoping the thermal shift would be more noticeable. And as for trying to capture the tri thermal, I gave up! But head over to my Instagram to see my 2 videos on each of these I've tried today. 
The first is a gorgeous blue called Retro Tenderness.
Application was ok, though this polish seemed thicker than normal but I was able to work with it. The blue is a gorgeous shade and lovely sparkling finish.
This purple is called Grey Reed. Application was better than the blue as this wasnt overly thick. A sheer look with the first 2 coats, so I did 3 but still couldn't get the dark purple shade as shown on the Born Pretty Store website!
Overall these are beautiful polishes and finishes, and I'd like to try some more of the darker shades perhaps. Have you tried these?

Charlies Nail Art

Mermaid Glitter 

Hello Friday again! My daughter reminds me every morning that it's a day closer to her birthday lol, and I've been winding her up as I'm a formula one fanatic and a race is on her 
birthday that we are having an F1 party ha ha!
So today for Charlies Nail Art I have this 4g resealable  bag of Mermaid Glitter. There are 4 different colours to choose from and are £1.39.
I have created 2 looks using this glitter, just so you can see the different colour effect you get with different base colours.
First up a pastel pink to peach gradient and I placed the larger glitters over my full nail.
Top coated twice and just love the iridescent sparkle each individual glitter gives off over the gradient base.
Then I wanted to do more of a mermaid look, so used the glitter in the same way as before, but only as an accent nail, over a blue base colour.

Again top coated twice to protect the glitters, and as you can see the complete different colour effect from the glitters.
Just a fab glitter that is so versatile, plus you get loads in the resealable bag!
For this and any other item from Charlies Nail Art, please use my discount code BNM15.

Beauty Big Bang

Leopard Flower Stamping

A very weird heading I know, but this circular stamping plate from Beauty Big Bang is super pretty and very detailed with some stunning images. 
With an open centre flower that's perfect for reverse stamping, which is surrounded by 4 full nail images.
BBB-013 is so pretty in person, and I couldn't wait to try it. So I create 3 looks...

This almost animal print/pebble image looks awesome over the turquoise base colour.
Reverse stamping with a matte finish.
Finally a monochrome look, but then..
I painted over with some sheer tint polishes.
I would recommend this plate for any length nails and use my discount code TRAB10 over on the Beauty Big Bang website.
If my discount code is used more than 6 times, then Beauty Big Bang will kindly host a giveaway over on IG.
You can pay via PayPal and credit card with free worldwide shipping.

Rossi Nails

Glam Powder Marble and more..

Hey guys, hope you are all well. I'm excited to be sharing this post on another 2 glam dip powders from Rossi Nails.
As well as using them for full colour coverage, over natural nails or with tip extensions, you can create many different looks with a few different techniques. 
Today on good old cindy hand, I have done an ombre, colour block and marble with these 2 colours.
Electric Daisy is an awesome bright green almost lime neon, and Love Affair a super pretty purple. I also used the Clear to protect my designs and encapsulate a dried flower. The gems were stuck on with the second coat of top, from the Dip powder liquids.
To see how I created each design you can watch my full video review/tutorial below.

These Glam dip powders are so nice to use and very pigmented, plus come in a range of different shades, colours and finishes.

Kaz Creations

Poppy Nails

I absolutely love water decals and the selection of fabulous designs from cartoon characters to awareness ribbons, world flags and flowers all from Kaz Creations are just perfect.
With the 75th anniversary of D Day just recently, these Poppy water decals seemed so fitting to review and wear.
The packaging is super cute and the sheet of debals is packed full of different poppy designs. There is no protective film on these decals, and you need to cut around each decal as close as possible.
They are on a clear base and look absolutely stunning over a white base.
They don't need long in water, and have enough slide for perfect placement.
All the designs work well and such a fitting tribute. Sealed with a glossy top coat.

Born Pretty Store

Nicole Diary Stamping 

Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was better than last weeks, kids are all better and the norovirus has left the building!
Today I have a very fun plate indeed from Born Pretty Store, a Nicole Diary stamping plate item number 46444 and it's sort of sci fi meets mysterious. 
There is definitely a magical vibe about the images on this plate, that I opted for an almost galaxy base, made using multiple holographic and flakie pigments from Born Pretty.
Then stamping in white as I think black would have been too dark. Silver would have looked nice too.
A different image for each nail and if I'm honest I do like how this looks, but I feel I could have possibly scraped the polish over the image a few times as it looks too strong and takes away from the base. Maybe it's me just being picky!
But a fabulous plate either way. You can use my discount code BABX31 over on the Born Pretty Store website.
