Essence On Air! and Rimmel Midnight Mistletoe (Glitter Bomb)

Hi :)

On Air! is one of the new gel polishes from Essence. I’ve tried a few of the new gel polishes and they are fantastic! They are so smooth and shiny. They look like they have a great squishy layer of topcoat built in!

There’s also a new base and topcoat, I haven’t tried them but I will! I have to now because I can’t believe the difference in the gel polishes, I really love the formula so much! I wore polish without a topcoat for the first time in my life, that’s how great they look.

I also found another Rimmel Glitter Bomb, called Midnight Mistletoe; which is a red, green and holographic polish. The Glitter Bomb’s are really pretty and I put the two together and ended up with Christmas mani in May :)

Essence Iced Latte

Hi :)

Today I have on one of the prettiest nudes ever. It’s so clean and fresh!

I maniacally searched every Essence display in the County to find it after I saw a swatch of it on MUA. It’s been a solid favourite since. It’s perfect for all those adult events, like interviews, where I can’t wear an inch of neon glitter on my nails! :)

What do you think? Do you like nude polish?

Nails Inc You’re a Peach and BornPrettyStore Daisys! :)

Hi! :)

These nails were supposed to be for the April #NailLinkUp, but I’m a little late posting them!

When I saw the theme Spring Flowers, I actually squeeled, because BornPrettyStore sent me these gorgeous little 3D Daisy’s to review and I couldn’t wait to try them and how perfectly do they fit the theme?! (I know, I know, I get way too excited about nails!)

The daisy’s are made of a kind of soft, rubber material, so they are really nice to use. They’re also really cute! They come in all kinds of lovely colours and are $1.99 for two. If you use my discount code below then they’re even cheaper and don’t forget they do free worldwide delivery! (Do I sound like an infomercial? I just love these flingin’ flanin’ things so much! :)

The polish is a free Nails Inc that came with the June 2013 edition of InStyle, called You’re a Peach. It’s a pretty pastel colour and the formula is ok, but not as good as real Nails Inc polishes. (I swear the free ones are different!)

Gosh Holographic Hero and BornPrettyStore Houndstooth Water Decals

Hi :)

This is the new version of the infamous Gosh holographic nail polish. It’s fabulous in the sun, obvs!, but it does chip really easily and quickly. It does say on the lid that it’s “For One Night Only”, and they mean it! it’s a chippy mess by day two.

Advertising a holographic polish for use at night time is really silly! It’s only holographic in the sun! It really should say for one day only? It doesn’t sound as glamourous but at least it makes sense! :P

I used BornPrettyStore water decals on my ring finger, I love houndstooth! These water decals are so easy to use, I’m wearing them more and more. Such a great alternative to stamping! (I practice and practice but still end up with polish everywhere but my nails!) These just glide on!

Sinful Colors Cream Pink

Hi :)

Sinful Colors Cream Pink looks dark pink in the bottle but when you put it on your nails, it’s actually a light, neon pink! When I put it on, it dried slightly matte, and I thought maybe it was meant to be a matte polish, like Savage, but when I walked by the window I realised it was neon!

It’s not eye searingly bright, it’s a little neon, a baby neon. If you think neon is too much for you but you want to dip your toe in the neon water, then this might be perfect for you. It also has beautiful gold shimmer. This would be perfect with a tan and it was so pretty that I wore it alone.

#NAILlinkup

Hi :)

I love #NAILlinkup! I’m trying to do all of the themes this month. It’s so much fun and because you can attempt each challenge at any time during the month, it’s really relaxed. There’s no pressure! (And, ok, I’m not the worlds greatest nail artist, but it’s fun to try new ideas!)

You can read all about it on CraftyNail’s blog here.

These are April’s challenge prompts:

Naillinkup-april-2015

 

I’ve already posted one for Easter and Pastels and today’s nails are April Showers :)

April here is hit and miss. One day the Sun is scorching and the next day it’s pouring rain. So that’s exactly what I put on my nails. Rain clouds and rainbows! (That’s what they’re supposed to be anyway.)

#NAILlinkup April Showers:

Here are the polishes I used:

Grey – Essence Got a Secret

Black – Nail Art Pen

Blue – NYC Raindrop

Purple – Model’s Own Lilac Dream

Pink – Sinful Colors Pink Forever

Peach – Nails Inc You’re a Peach

Yellow – China Glaze Lemon Fizz

White – Nail Art Pen

I used this cute pink nail art brush from Penny’s to do the rainbow, and even though my lines are terrible, the brush was great! Not a bad little set for E2.50! :D

Maybelline Purple Dazzle

Hi :)

Maybelline Purple Dazzle is a purple jelly polish with pastel pink, purple and blue glitter and tiny pink and green glitter. It’s so colourful! It’s looks like you put the worlds prettiest sprinkles inside a bowl of jelly. So sparkly and squishy! :D

I posted the blue version of this last week, Skyline Blue, I love them both. (Ok I love the purple one a bit more, OK a lot more! But shhhhh! Don’t let the blue one know, it’ll hurt his feelings.)

I loooove jelly polishes with glitter! Actually I’ve posted a bunch of them, like this one, or this one, or this one, or this one or this one and I love them all! (Not equally though…shhhh!)

Ciate Candy Cane

Hi :)

I got one of those Ciate Tree Trinkets for Christmas. It’s a lovely little gift. It’s a clear plastic bauble that you can hang on the Christmas tree and it has a mini nail polish inside. It’s made for polish lovers right?

Except that Ciate apparently stole a nail polish blogger’s original idea. Then sold it as their own and sent legal paperwork to the bloggers who created or used the nail idea which ordered them to stop posting said nail idea, because it now belonged to Ciate. You can read more about it here, here and here, if you’re interested in the details. :/

There was a widespread boycott of all Ciate products because of this. I have enjoyed a few free mini polishes that were given away with magazines but I never purchased one because they really went too far.

This all happened long before I was a blogger, and although I have very few original ideas, (damn you Pinterest!), if I did have one then I would be reeeeallly upset to have a huge nail polish company take it and order me to stop doing it! and then make a huge profit off my idea!

So I love my gift and the polish is really pretty but I just can’t purchase any Ciate products. They just went. too. far.

Sinful Colors Savage and L.A. Colors Confetti!

Hi :)

 

EDIT: Thanks to the girls on reddit! The name of the glitter is L.A. Colors Confetti :D

 

I need your help today! I don’t know the name of the glitter I used below, and I’m hoping one of you lovelies might recognize it :)

I bought a bottle of glitter, I think it was an american brand like Wet n Wild, and I dropped it and the bottle broke! I always keep an empty bottle of basecoat/topcoat in my dresser for just such an emergency, (a tip I picked up on MUA), and I poured what I could save into the empty OPI bottle and binned the broken bottle without checking the name!

Now I can’t remember the name or the brand! I was so busy trying to clean it up that I never wrote it down. :/ (P.s. there’s still a circle of glitter on my carpet – I kinda like it though! :)

The other polish is Sinful Colors Savage, one of polishes I hauled from Dealz, and it’s a really pretty green and it dried matte to my surprise! :)

Here’s a pic of the glitter, not in it’s original bottle, (it’s definitely not OPI), anyone? Any guesses? :)

It’s got red, gold, pink, silver and green glitter (the same colour as Savage.)
