Pokemon Nail Art!

Hey all,

I found this awesome pattern this week for a Pokeball, I crocheted it and ohhhhh boyyyyy I love it! 
I decided to do my nails to suit the ball! I made both the general looking pokeball and the premier ball, which I drew as an accent nail :)

Here it is :)

What do you guys think?! I love how it turned out :)

Thank you for reading!

MoYou Stamping Plate Review!

Hey ladies,

Earlier in the week I got an email from MoYou asking me if I could review their stamping plates...okay at first I was a little confused because I have been out of blogging for over 2 months! Lol, I never expected it, so it was a nice surprise.

I received plate numbers 103 and 105. I used plate 105 for the look I am about to show you.
When I received the plates they were covered in a protective blue cover which you remove. Also got the scraper and stamper along with black polish :)

I was really impressed with the plates, this is because the designs on the 105 plate are really thin and they transferred clearly onto the stamper. The polish itself was really good too which helped in the stamping.

I created a simple look, I used a base of Barry M - Caramel then I added glitter near my cuticles which is by Jess Polish (forgot the name) I stamped on the bow design and decided to make a decal by painting it in green :)

Here it is!

 I really like these plates, once my nails are longer I will use plate 103 since its all tip designs :)

You can find these plates HERE and HERE

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Swatches - Royal Icing, Red Velvet and Treat-Heart!

Hey all, has been so long since I have blogged, painted my nails and even bought nails polish. It has been 2 months and a bit...I really suffered from loosing my so called "mojo" 
I had exams which were pretty stressful, they literally took over my life. I lost interest in a lot of things, my love for nail polish and crochet had actually gone...I'm slowly getting back into the groove now since University is over for the summer (more like rainy weather) so im getting back to my hobbies :)

A few weeks ago I popped into Poundland to buy some much needed tissue and happened to walk past the cosmetics section and saw that they had some new Sally Hansen sugar coat polishes *gasp* they're so pretty and im so glad im not paying full price for them! Lol!

I picked up the three I saw and now I managed to swatch them and they're STUNNING! Shimmery and textured and just WOOOOOW :D The only annoying thing that goes with shimmer polish is that during removal you whole entire finger is gonna end up shimmery! 

First up is Royal Icing

It's a light blue base filled with purple shimmery bits, it is a bit sheer. I have four coats on but there still is a visible nail line, drying time is fast and rock hard within 5 mins :)

Next up is Treat-Heart

A lovely baby pink base with shimmery darker pink bits. Again it is sheer so I have three coats on but I love how dainty it looks! Definitely an elegant polish and I would wear it to fancy events ;) haha

Lastly, my absolute favourite is Red Velvet. An absolutely lushhhhhh raspberry red, it contains light pink shimmers and is a one coater! I added two just because I feel better having two coats on :) haha
I could literally wear this polish all the damn time! It's bright, textured and just fantastic!

Now I am so glad I got my hands on these polishes as I really do love textured polish! 

What do you ladies think? :) 

Stay tuned, I have some nail art coming up with a crochet item! 

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

NOTW - Skittles and Swatch!

Hey Ladies,

Again it has been a while since I've posted something! 

This time round I decided to just show you all what's been on my nails this past 8 days or so. 

This passed week I painted my nails using glitter and stamping, made a pretty impressive skittle I think! Love the colour contrast between purple and green :) also I added more glitter on top of the tiger stamped nails just to stick to the theme of glitter! I had this on for a good 5 days :O that's a first!

Here it is :)

What do you think of this little skittle? :)

Okay, now for the next manicure. I bought one of those Jess polishes that everyone has been talking about in Poundland! I bought a green glitter one, its packed with green and gold glitter that is just so lovely on my nails! :D 
I layered Tiger Lilly (awesome name!) over a bright green polish :) 

Really impressed and definitely worth that pound! Lol!

I did paint my nails with Barry M - Papaya and layer over one of the new Maybelline graffiti polishes (review soon!) but here is a little sneek peek :)

So this has been my week or so of nails, I think I'll be doing this more often as it's more manageable for me :) What do you guys think!?

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Maybelline Color Show - In Your Flesh!

Hey all,

It has been a while since I posted, im just enjoying my life to the fullest. My blogging mojo has gone, I know this since im not getting excited over polish anymore...must just be stress and such stuff getting to me.

A couple weeks ago I bought a nude polish by Maybelline - In your flesh.

It's a very lovely colour, barely shows up on your nails and really matches my skin tone I think. The formula of the polish is great as I was able to get full coverage in two coats and it was really shiny and I had no need for topcoat. It also dried pretty fast which is always a plus!

Here are my swatches:

Overall, I am really impressed and I would definitely recommend this polish to any one that is looking for a nude :)

Thanks for reading

Studsies - Born Pretty Store Silver & Gold Studs!

Hey all.

Having a good weekend? :)

Today I have my second review for the studs* I got from the Born Pretty Store! They are gold and silver in colour and vary in sizes, from 1.2mm, 2mm and 3mm :) 

I really like having that variation in size, it means I can place more than one stud on my nails :)

I did a really simple design using these and inspiration from bloggers here and there :)

Here it is:

There is one annoying thing about the larger studs, they are too concave. Which means when I wanted to place them on my nails they didn't stick that well. Other than that I am happy with these studs and will defo be using them more in the future!

These cost $3.95 from Born Pretty Store and the link is HERE

You can use my discount code:

Errmagerd I Got Me Studs!

Hey Ladies,

How is it all going!?

I have a review today for you all of Born Pretty Store 400pcs 2mm Neon Studs*...I am so EXCITEEEEED :D!! I love studs, I have seen so many bloggers use them and create wonderful manicures! I just really wanted some and I am so glad that I got sent some to review! Whooop! :D

Here are the Studs - A bunch of wonderful colours, some are neon and a few are pastel :) I do love that there is such a variety of colours and has some pastel colours too! The size is great, you can definitely fit more that one stud on you nail nicely.

I created two manicures with these studs, first one is pastel zig zags and I used the purple and coral pink studs! 

I love how the studs stick so firmly, it was hard tryna get em off. I think this is because the studs are concave so when the clear top coat sets in, it really sticks hard! 

Next up is a simple triangle tape mani in blue and green and I used neon blue and green studs!

Again, the studs really add that much needed touch :) I love it!

Overall, I am pretty pleased with these studs. They are shiny and have really good colours and I actually reuse them :)

You can buy them HERE for $7.59 and use my 10% voucher code! wooooop! 
Code: NDX31 

Next time ill be back with a review of the silver and gold studs :) stay tuned! 

Thanks for reading :)

Bye for now!

Swatch Saturday - Sally Hansen Sugar Coat!

Hey Ladies :)

Hope you're all having a great weekend!! 
Recently, I've popped into Poundland and....I was blow away! There was a bunch of Sally Hansen Sugar Coat polishes that had only come out like a year ago. I was quite confused as to why these polishes were in Poundland but nonetheless I took the ooportunity to purchase a few :) 
Sadly, there was only black, white and yellow available NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I need the full collection :( That's when the hunting started...I went to all the Poundlands I knew! then I found the green and the blue and then the purple....but No Bueno :( I still can't find the Pink one (Cotton Candies, if anyone wants to send it to me for free! LOL)

I've swatched what I have so far and I am loving them, I would have never bought the polishes for full price so buying them for £1 really felt great :D can you believe I paid £7 for 7 and not the original price of £48.93
I mean ladies....can you justify paying that much!? I most certainly couldn't!!

Here are the swatches :)

1. Bubble Plum - A lovely light purple a little darker than lilac. One thickish coat since it's so damn pigmented! 

2. Cherry Drop - A bright red. One coat, again super pigmented!

3. Lick-O-Rich - Black of course! I have two thin coats on since it was a bit patchy.

4. Razzleberry - A nice deep blue! I have one coat on as this was so pigmented and really was a stainer!

5. Sour Apple - Lovely mint green :D two coats and lovely coverage!

6. Sugar Fix - White! Duhhh! I have two coats on just to give full coverage! 

7. Sweetie - A lightish yellow. Two coats :)

Really sad that I don't have cotton candies - I feel like the collection is uncomplete and all crying for their friend :P lolz 
Still love the sugary textures as this is one of my favourite finishes, totally worth £1 haha!

What do you guys think!?

Thanks for reading!

KBShimer - Radioactive!

Hey ladies,

I hope you've all had a good week, I am looking forward to the weekend and relaxing. Been a stressful week for me in all aspects! It's tough being a student...hard to stay sane lol 

Bleh...I'm so sad that I don't enjoy blogging as often as I want to. I do my nails and have a tonne saved up to post but just don't have the motivation to do it. 

On my little break right now (doing a long ass essay on Telomeres) I wanted to share with you my second indie polish ever! :) lol 

It's KBShimmer - Radioactive, its a bright green that glows in the dark :) has a bunch of random glitters in it which I think are a night mare to fish out lol

Nonetheless, I liked it as it was an amazing present from someone close to me.

Here it is :)

I managed to get good coverage and I am pleased, I dont have a fancy shmancy camera to take a picture in the dark so if you're interested in the glow effect check out Chalkboard Nails swatch HERE

Thanks for reading ladies :)

Bye for now!

SpaRitual Explore Spring Collection - Firefly!

Hey Ladies, How are you all doing?!

Today I have a very special polish! I have been sent* one of the new polishes as part of the SpaRitual Explore Spring Collection 2014

I was sent the lovely Firefly, it is a bright yellow crème polish....and boy is it BRIGHT! I actually got seriously dazed! 

The polish itself is sheer and does take many layers to achieve a decent coverage HOWEVER the plus side is that each layer dries pretty fast making it easier to built up layers. I have 4 layers on my index and middle finger and within 10 minutes its rock hard. On my ring and pink finger I have two coats layered over white which makes the colour 'POP' a bit more. I don't have any topcoat on since I don't mind the slight matte finish but you could always put it on!

As with all SpaRitual nail lacquers, these new shades are vegan and free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde resin. With an easy grip bottle brush maboby thing, which honestly makes application so much easier!

Here are le swatches!

SO BRIGHT!! AHHHH!! I love it :D

You can purchase the collection when it is released next week :) 

SpaRitual Explore collection is available at Sparitual (UK) and SpaRitual (US) at £9.97 a bottle!

Thanks for reading :)

Bye for now!
