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!)

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:
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

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 :)
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.

When you look into the bottle you can see this green light, it’s so pretty :)

Happy St Patrick’s Day! :D
(These were my nails for the big day, and this was supposed to be posted on time, but I had technical issues)
(And no, I don’t mean I had too much green beer! :)
You are looking at the Irish Flag on my ring finger and little Guinnesses on my other fingers. Which, I thought, was the perfect representation of the day itself!
I used Essie Licorice (black), Sinful Colors Snow Me White (white), Sinful Colors Envy (green) and OPI A Roll in the Hague (gold).
Hope you all had a great day! Leprechauns for everyone!
I had to take a pic of the Irish Flag polishes too – I was feeling very patriotic! :)
I also wanted to show you the little shamrock earrings I ordered from BornPrettyStore.com. They had a St Patrick’s Day sale and what kind of an Irish girl on St Patrick’s Day would I be without shamrock earrings!? I couldn’t resist! They are too friggin cute!
They roped me in with their free samples and 10% off coupon code and now I can’t stop buying things off them! *Shakes fist in anger but then stops to admire tiny cheap earrings* :D
