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!)

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.

Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost

Hi :)

This is another amazing polish from Wet n Wild. They do the most beautiful colours and the formula is amazing. Plus, they’re reasonably priced. I have an official polish crush :)

This is a purple polish with a vibrant blue shimmer. It was so hard to capture but it is really gorgeous. I have a thing for purple/blue polishes and this one is a great addition!

What do you think?

I love the pink dipped brush heads :)

Binky London Purple Shimmer

Hi :)

My apologies for the lack of posts the last few weeks. I’m having internet issues and today I accidentally poured water all over my laptop charger, it snapped, crackled and popped, all the way to the graveyard! My magnificent brother gave me his laptop to use, but all of my photos are on my dead laptop. I hope to have a new charger soon, and in the meantime I’ll post as often as I can. :)

I posted this beautiful pink texture polish from Binky London last month, and I loved it so much my wonderful Mother went back and bought me the purple version, (She’s the only Mother that gives gifts on Mother’s day! Thanks for the chocolates too Mam!), called Purple Shimmer. It has the same great finish and formula as the pink one.  I am still very much in love with this brand. It’s totally changed my mind about celebrity brands. I won’t be so hesitant to try them in the future. (I’m looking at you Kardashian Kollection.)

However, it’s a 99.9% dupe for Rimmel Moon Walking, which I posted here. :( The only slight difference is that the purple base is richer than the Rimmel, which fades a bit as it dries.

It’s still a great polish and I can’t complain about having two beautiful purple textures :)

 

Here’s Binky London Purple Shimmer:

Rimmel Moon Walking (Space Dust Collection)

Hi :)

I went absolutely ga-ga over the Rimmel Space Dust Collection. I bought the only two I could find and they both quickly became my favourite silver and nude polishes. They are the best textures ever because they are sparkly and matte at the same time, very pigmented and they look texturised but never snag on anything.

When I came across the entire Space Dust collection in a pound shop, I bought them all, including a spare silver and nude!

This purple Space Dust is called Moon Walking and it has a much richer colour than you see in the bottle and tiny purple glitter that catches alll the light, and larger hex glitter for extra sparkle. I absolutely loved it and didn’t make the mistake of adding anything to it! :)

NYC NY Princess (Crystal Couture)

Hi :D

I tried a new technique today. I’m feeling adventurous and brave. I defy the nail art Gods! I will master the dark arts of the nail art brush, sponge and striping tape!

It’s called a Syrup mani and here’s how you do it:

You take a jelly (sheer) finish nail polish and you paint one coat as usual on the whole nail, but on the second coat you start about a third of the way down the nail. Then on the third coat you just paint the bottom third of the nail, so you get a kind of gradient effect but with just one colour. It’s supposed to look like syrup dripping off the nails I think?

Anyway that’s what I tried today, I used NYC NY Princess which is a fab dark purple jelly with purple glitter. (Glitter makes everything better!)

What do you think?

Wet n Wild Disturbia and Orly Luxe

Hi :)

After my success copying the Jessica Biel mani, I wanted to try some more nail art. I was on a high and success breeds confidence! However, I’m not very skilled at art or very creative so I went to the always impressive The Nailasaurus for inspiration and saw this.

The Nailasaurus created this look by hand drawing the gold lines, but that’s way out of my league, so I thought I might recreate it with striping tape.

It wasn’t a huge success but overall I thought it was cool looking (from a distance). It turned out to be the same, general, kind of look? Similar? Well at least I tried! :D

I used Wet n Wild Disturbia which is an almost black nail polish with beautiful purple shimmer, (that doesn’t translate to the nails), and Orly Luxe, the best gold nail polish on record. (My record, in my head.)

L’Oreal Divine Indigo and Wet n Wild Jam Session

Hi everyone :)

After the super bling of yesterdays polish, I wanted to wear something dark and sophisticated with no glitter at all. Just something sleek and simple, so I put on this gorgeous purple and it was exactally what I wanted.

Except it had no glitter.

I changed my mind! I’m not sophisticated! I need bling! So I added this pink and purple glitter from Wet n Wild and I quite liked the combo. :)

What do you guys think? Did I ruin it or improve it by adding glitter?

NYC Jam and Nap and Barry M Pink Sapphire

Hi everyone :)

Jam and Nap is a lovely creme lavender colour from NYC. It’s a little too dark to be pastel but too light to be called purple. NYC is another great low priced brand that always delivers great colours and formulas. This applied like butta :)

Of course I added glitter! This is one layer of Barry M Pink Sapphire, which is a pink hex and holo bar glitter mix. I loved it!

Filthy Gorgeous Pulp and Claire’s Velour

Hi everyone!

These Filthy Gorgeous polishes are quite expensive so when I saw them in the Poundshop I had to grab one. I choose Pulp because it was a rich, dark purple that I thought would look quite classy and vampy but instead it was a bit dull.

So then I added a coat of Velour, which is a purple glitter with lots of teeny tiny holographic glitter, and this was much more to my liking!

If all else fails, throw glitter at it! :)
