Blue Roses Water Decal Nail Wraps from Charlies Nail Art

We're at the beginning of our British summer but so far the temperature has failed to rise, still feels like spring!  But things are starting to stir in the garden and plants are beginning to grow. So while I'm waiting for any signs of flowers in my garden I'll wear them on my nails instead!  So today's mani is using 'Blue Roses' full wrap water decals from Charlies Nail Art.  The full wrap decals are on a transparent background so you can see your base colour underneath, white in my case.  Each decal has gold glitter in the centre of each rose.  As like full wrap water decals I've tried before from Charlies Nail Art they are probably one of the best full wrap water decals I've tried because the wrap secures and wraps itself to your nail, all you have to do is tidy up the overlap and seal with top coat. Fancy a cheeky little discount at Charlies Nail Art?

Flower, Rhinestone & Pearl Nail Decoration & Stamping Plate from Born Pretty Store

Nail decorations are the perfect way to pep up your mani, to give them interest & make them beautiful.  So today I have a couple of manis to show you using 3D Flower Nail Decorations from Born Pretty Store.  There are 2 in the pack, I've used both on one hand but you could use one on each hand.  The pretty blue flowers have a gold centre and teamed with dark blue rhinestones and tiny pearls.  Set in gold tone with a curved back, they fit wonderfully to your nail.  I used top coat to attach them however nail glue will be a more secure option.
First mani on the left - a shimmery pale blue with white stamping using  Stamping Plate BP-L029 also from Born Pretty Store.  The second mani on the right is a super cute peach topped with blue confetti nail polish to match the colours in the nail decoration.

Cube, Rectangle, Circle & Stars Nail Art Stamping Plate from Lady Queen

Here's a couple of my latest manis using a stamping plate from Lady Queen.  A circular plate divided into 4 designs, rectangles, cubes, stars and a block circle pattern.  The patterns compliment each other and can be used together in the same mani.
For my 2 manis I used shimmer polishes for the base and stamped in black.  The green shimmer mani on the left combines both the rectangle and block circle pattern  and the gold shimmer mani on the right is with the stars.
Lady Queen has lots of great nail art items and I have a discount code to share with you which gets you 15% off full priced items.

smART Nails Stencils - Fireworks P078

When I was a little girl, and that was a looooong time ago, we only had fireworks on Bonfire Night (5th Nov).  Nowadays Fireworks are used for lots of celebrations throughout the year, from New Year's Eve, Weddings, Theme Parks and much more.  So if you like fireworks how about creating some fabulous manis using Firework stencils from smART Nails.  Using a dusky pink and purple sponged base I added the Firework stencils in silver, gold & red shimmer.  There are 10 stencils per pack in various designs and you can reuse each one a few times.  Stencils are a great way to create nail art.   Simply peel off the stencil from the backing paper.  The stencil is transparent so you can see exactly where to place it on the nail.  Press onto your dry nail and make sure there are no air bubbles.  Seal with top coat once the stencilled polish is completely dry to avoid smearing. To reuse the stencil I put the painted stencil on the plastic packaging the stencils came in, wiped the polish off with nail polish remover and it was good to use again.
I highly recommend these stencils because they are easy, effective, fun, inexpensive and a great way to decorate you nails.

smART Nails stencils are currently $1.99 / £1.25 / €1.58 per pack and they offer international shipping at a flat rate of $5.

This is a quote from the website "There are some speculations on the web regarding the name “glass nail file” and “crystal nail file”. Some of the retailers provide inaccurate information, telling about differences in quality, production process and so on. The fact is tempered Czech glass is a crystal that comes after several stages of heat processing, therefore all so called “differences” are not more than marketing myth.
So don’t hesitate, if you are looking for glass nail file or crystal nail file you are on the right place."
