L’Oreal Opera Ballerina and Cute Cat Decals from BornPrettyStore.com

Hi again everyone!

Here’s a super quick and super cute, (if I do say so myself!), mani.

The polish is L’Oreal Opera Ballerina, the most beautiful pale nude polish ever. I usually hate sheer polishes, I really don’t like seeing my nails under polish, but this has such a pretty french manicure effect, that I fell in love. (With myself.) (Take that every fairy tale ever told!)

I think I already mentioned how much I love L’Oreal polishes, (See: every post about L’Oreal that I ever wrote), because the formula is like butta! (Do people still say butta?) Anyway, it applies like a dream!

L’Oreal Opera Ballerina:

The cat decal is from BornPrettyStore.com and they work just like those tattoos you get in bubble gum. You remove the plastic, place it over the nail, wet it and then remove the paper and voila! Cute Cat picture on your nails! They are so quick and easy to use. Why needs a hundred nail art tools when you have instant stickers!

I mean, just look at that lil face! I just wanna smush his cute lil facie wacie! Yesh I do! Yesh I do wanna smuch his lil facie wacie!

L’Oreal Femme Fatale and BornPrettyStore nail decoration

Hi everyone! :)

You just can’t beat a good red nail polish. It cures all! (It cures some). (Ok, it doesn’t cure anything, but it can cheer you up a bit).

After applying topcoat, I glued on these Born Pretty Store decorations. I really like them. You get five in a pack and they’re curved to fit the nail, which means they don’t catch in anything. (I was afraid they would catch in everything!) I ended up wearing them for two days with no problems.

The L’Oreal had a great formula too, the more I try these polishes the more I like them.

Maybelline (Crystallize) Green Depth and Born Pretty Store Shell Paper

Hi! :D

Maybelline Green Depth is one of the Crystallize nail polishes, which is a collection of liquid sand polishes.

It’s a black polish with green/purple duochrome glass fleck and it is utterly gorgeous.

Maybelline Green Depth (No topcoat)

If you squint at the bottle, you can see the glass fleck is green in the middle and purple towards the edge. I love this polish!

However, it’s at this point that I messed the whole thing up!

Now, my original idea was to use this gorgeous Born Pretty Store shell paper over the polish to get irregularly shaped green flashes over a subtle green shimmer background. But this didn’t happen. “Why?”.

My first mistake was trying to stick the smooth plastic shell paper over liquid sand, because of the gritty finish of the polish, the paper couldn’t adhere.

Then I thought I could fix the whole thing by smothering it with topcoat but because the shell paper wasn’t stuck properly, it kept lifting, and the liquid sand polish kept soaking up all the topcoat, so I ended up with a lumpy finish. (Not a good look).

However, I still loved how the shell paper looked! I just made a mistake pairing it with a liquid sand polish. I’m definitely going to try it again and use it with a regular polish. :)

Have any of you succeeded in creating this type of nail look? Any tips for me? :)

Maybelline (Bleached Neons) Tropink over Essence Wild White Ways

Hi everyone! :)

I was so excited to try the Maybelline Bleached Neons, (I live for neon and glitter!), and this colour did not disappoint.

First of all; it was actually neon, unlike a lot of polishes that advertise themselves to be neon, and then just aren’t. Don’t say you’re neon if you’re not neon! It’s false advertisement! (Am I getting too shouty? I get a bit shouty about non-neon neons).

Secondly, it was a gorgeous colour. It sat in-between pink and coral, neither one nor the other, just sat there, being pretty. I loved it and I keep picking it to wear over my other neons just because the colour is a bit different, a bit less obvious and really girly. (You know, compared to the traffic cone orange neon and the highlighter yellow neon).

However, it is necessary to wear this polish over a white base. I used Essence Wild White Ways, which has a great formula and coverage. If you are shopping for a white polish, I’d highly recommend this one. I went out and bought a few backups because it’s so hard to find a good white.

NYC Hudson Breeze and Rimmel Pop Art! Topcoat and Jamberry

Hi again everyone! :)

Let’s just pick up where we left off: (and ignore the long absence!)

This is NYC Hudson Breeze, a gorgeous bright blue, and for extra fun, I added a coat of Rimmel Pop Art! glitter.

The accent nail is a free sample, from the fabulous Kami at Jamberry nail wraps. You can find them, and her, here!

Jamberry is now available in the UK guys! I cannot wait to finally get my hands on a full set, they are the best nail wraps I have ever tried! Yay! *mini happy dance*

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!)
