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!

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 (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.

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.

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!)

Orly Beach Cruiser and Born Pretty Store Neon Pink Glitter

Hi :)

Now that we finally have some sunshine here, I want to wear neon! I love neon nails, they look so vivid in the sun. Do you wear neon in the Summer? I get a lot of comments when I wear neon, not all of it positive! (So rude!)

I put on two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, the best white nail polish I have ever used, then put striping tape down the middle of my nail and added a thick coat of Orly Beach Cruiser on one side.

Beach Cruiser photographed a bit darker than it is in person but it’s so difficult to capture neon, especially in the Sun. The camera reacts like my cat when I’m trying to give it medicine, “No! NO! NO!“.

Then I added some round neon pink glitter from BornPrettyStore.com. The glitter is 1.68 euro and they do free worldwide shipping AND this code will get you a further 10% off, which makes it a bargain in any language! :)

Essence Who is Mr Brown? and Gold Foil

Happy Easter!

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, we got some sun here finally and it was so nice. :)

I was trying to think of an Easter themed mani all weekend because I’m trying to follow the prompts on the #NAILLINKUP, (and because it’s Easter :P),

Naillinkup-april-2015

 

but I couldn’t think of anything! Then, yesterday, I was eating my chocolate Easter egg and playing with the gold foil and thinking how nice the foil would be on my nails and I realised I have nail foil! So at the last minute I had this idea to do chocolate colored nails and then put some gold nail foil over it :)

Nail foils are so pretty but they are temporary because they either go dull, wrinkle or just wear away almost immediately. I took these pics straight after I put on the foil but they were wrinkled about an hour later and had half of my jumper stuck to them by dinner time. (Because of the glue you use to adhere the foil to your nails – it’s very sticky! :)

Anyway! Here are my Easter nails a.k.a. a gold foil covered chocolate Easter egg!

Barry M Prickly Pear, Essence Cinderella The Glass Slipper and Bornprettystore.com pastel studs

Hi :)

One of the free samples Bornprettystore sent me was this fab little pot of different size studs. The colours are so pretty, they’re a mix of neon and pastel. I thought when I saw them on the website that they were all neon, but when I got them and saw that half of them were pastel, I knew I had to do a look for the #NAILLINKUP. (Click the image to go to CraftyNail’s website where you can find out more :)

Naillinkup-april-2015

I used Barry M Prickly Pear, one of the Gelly polishes, and the new Essence Cinderella glitter topper called The Glass Slipper.

The Essence is jam packed with pink/purple glassfleck and silver glitter and it’s soo freakin pretty. In the bottle the polish looks green too but that doesn’t show up on the nail.

Then I added a few of the pastel pink studs at the cuticle. I love adding one stud to the top of the nail, it’s so simple but completely changes the entire look.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

Hi :)

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby is a red creme polish. When I first picked it up I left it back on the shelf, because I thought to myself, “I have enough red cremes”, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I went back and luckily it was still there waiting for me. It’s just such a pretty shade of red. Not too bright, not too dark. Just perfect. (It’s the Goldilocks of red polishes).

When I went back I also spotted a big nail art wheel full of silver and gold studs of all shapes and sizes. I had to get that! It was 1.49euro in Dealz. I do love a bargain! It also had round black studs so I put them over Ruby Ruby for some Poundshop chic :)
