Set of 6 Stamping Polishes from Born Pretty Store at Amazon - Product B0734XKP1V

I've made another cheeky little purchase from Born Pretty Store at Amazon!  A set of 6 stamping polishes.  I ordered from the UK and the delivery was only a couple of days, a lot faster than I was expecting.  Each polish arrives protected in its own individual polystyrene surround which means they arrive safely.
There are different sets to choose from and I chose this colourway because black and white stamping polishes are key colours and always handy to have.  I really like and wanted to see how the gold and silver looked, I wasn't disappointed, the gold and silver are my favourites!
Check out my YouTube video at the end for a demonstration.
 
 Here are all 6 stamping polishes over black and white
 The silver and gold are my favourites so I had to do a mani using them!
 
All stamped splendidly, the white it brilliant over black and the gold and silver are stunning, these two shades will look great over so many base colours.  I always apply a top coat over my base colour to prevent the stamping polish from being absorbed into the base colour.
The bottles are 6ml and I used them with a Born Pretty Store stamping plate, stamper and scraper, also available at Amazon.

Avon Pro Colour in 60 Seconds Nail Enamels - The Deeps

Avon has recently launched 18 new shades in their 'Pro Colour 60 Second' range.  
Today I'm sharing with you the 6 'Deep' shades
🌟 Dashing Red
🌟 In No Tweed
🌟 Mauve Quickly
🌟 Pronto Plum
🌟 Quick Dive
🌟 Wine On Time
The Avon brochure says the nail enamel has a 3-in-1 base coat, colour and top coat formula, however, I would always use a separate base coat and apply a top coat. The brush is slightly wider than previous Avon nail enamels, but not the widest I've ever used.

Born Pretty Store Stamping Set from Amazon - Item Number B078M6HBWR

Hi everyone!  Today I'm going to share with you a stamping kit I bought from Born Pretty Store at Amazon.  The set includes everything you need to start nail art stamping.  Included are 2 large stamping plates, 2 stamping polishes in black and white, a flexible scraper and double ending clear jelly stamper.  I bought the set from Amazon and it was just under £15 and delivery was really fast.

The stamping plate named 'Celebration BPX L014' includes hearts, flowers and words of love, there's even a pair of little kitties so I was sold on that!
The stamping plate named BP-L052 has 14 different mandala designs, I know I'll use this plate again and again.  I'd like to try using this plate with reverse stamping.
 
 
 
 
 
 
After prepping the two plates with a wipe over of nail polish remover to remove any residue from the protective film, and pressing the jelly stamping over a lint roller/sticky roller a few times, you are prepared for stamping.  
The clear jelly stamper is brilliant and picks up clear, crisp images from the plate.
The combination of plates, stamping polishes and scraper all work in harmony with each other. 
Very easy to use and I'm extremely happy with my purchase.  Check out my 2 YouTube videos demonstrations below!

NICOLE DIARY - Satin Chrome / Foil Effect Nail Polishes

Hello!  Today's post is about a set of 5 satin chrome, metallic, foil nail polishes from Nicole Diary which I bought from Amazon.  The polishes don't have shades names, the colours are red, light blue, emerald green, light green and gunmetal grey.
The first thing I want to say about this collection is that the brush is wide which I really like. If you have small fingernails you'll probably be able to cover your nail in one swipe.

I applied the polishes over false nails which have a smooth unblemished surface. The polishes dried down to a smooth satin chrome effect which is stunning.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I also applied them to my natural nails after I'd buffed them to give a smooth surface. I found the nail polishes looked better without using any base coat. The polishes weren't as satin smooth as over the false nails but they were just as lovely.
 
I also applied a glossy top coat to my nails and the effect changed from a satin chrome to a shiny foil effect and also changed the colour of some of the polishes, the effect is still amazing, the top coat makes them look brighter.

 Whichever you prefer you have the option of satin chrome or shiny foil, and I reckon they'll be very good for stamping too!
