Born Pretty Store Glitter Rhinestones Wheel

Hello Lovely Nail Art Lovers & Happy Easter!!!  No choccy eggs for me today, instead I'm having fun with these wonderful Glitter Rhinestones from Born Pretty Store.  The acrylic rhinestones are 3mm and come in 12 gorgeous colours, they are faceted and light bounces off them, I can't stop looking at them!!!  I could think of tons of designs and different colour ways, but as it's Easter I decided on pastels.

I used 2 shades of Nails Inc nail polish, Peach Sorbet and Wellington Square, and adorned each nail with a different shade of peach, coral, amber & aurora with the ring finger having one of each colour.

They have a flat base which makes them super easy to fix to your nail and you can create lots of nail art designs with the wide range of colours, I now fancy a dark mani with the blue & green the pics.....

 The wheel is huge and packed full of Rhinestones!

The Glitter Rhinestone Wheel is available at Born Pretty Store for $4.47 / £2.93 /€3.48 and use my 10% off code below for a discount!!

This product was sent to me for my honest review.....and honestly... I LOVE THEM!!!  Check out the other great products at Born Pretty Store!

Viva La Nails Skull Water Decals

Ooooo look what I got!!!  I love these Skull water decals from Viva La Nails, I think the design is awesome!

If you've not tried water decals before and always wanted to have a go, here's a mini tutorial on how to apply them.
In this pack are 10 decals in different sizes, however you can cut them to what ever size fits your nail.......

First remove the protective film on top of the whole set and cut one of the decals out to fit your nail shape/size......
 Place the cut out decal in a little cup of water, after a few moments the water decal will detach from the backing.....

Dab the decal very carefully with a tissue or cloth to remove the excess water and place on your nail, leave to dry for a bit then file away the excess.  Add a top coat which will seal the design to your nail and iron out any wrinkles that may appear.....

 The decal on the index finger is the bottom half of the decal on my ring finger.  Which is good for two reasons, 1) it gives a different design to the other fingers 2) I fluffed up on one of the decals so had to use a bit left over from the other one!!!

These Skull Water decals are £2.95 from Viva La Nails and were sent to me for review.  I love the quirkiness of the design and they feel smooth on my nails.  My only suggestion would be to have an extra couple of decals in the pack as spares, but then again, if you are careful and have small nails you can actually get more than one nail covered from each wrap.

Here's a bit more info about purchasing from Viva la Nails.  Shipping starts at £2.95 and they ship worldwide, FREE shipping applies over £25 UK & Europe and over £50 USA, Canada & Australia. Viva La Nails offers next day delivery in the UK.

Viva La Nails has loads of quality nail goodies and also offer an affiliate programme, go check them out I can HIGHLY recommend them! You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Blog &You Tube.

Tri-Polish Challenge - March Part 2 - Green, Purple, Coral

This Tri-Polish challenge is being hosted by the lovely Debbie The Crumpet and the rules & polishes are in my previous post here.

March - Green, Purple Coral

It's quite weird how sometimes you know exactly you are going to do, what I like about this challenge is that there is no set theme apart from the colours.  So I've gone for a gradient tape mani, the coral as the base as it's the brightest colour, with the green & purple gradient on top.  To the pics......

Viva La Nails!

Today I received the most gorgeous nail polish and rhinestone nail stickers from Viva La Nails for review.

The nail polish went on a dream, I had hardly any cleaning up to do at all as the brush and consistency of the polish made it very quick & easy to apply, one of those nail polishes you love to apply!  You can get away with one coat but I always like to apply two coats which gives super coverage.  The lid is slim which makes it easy to hold, and you get a whooping 15ml of nail polish, excellent value for £3.95.  Embellished with Viva La Nails Rhinestone Nail Stickers which are the icing on the cake!  So easy to use, unpeel, stick on and you're away!  You can easily take them off and replace if you're not happy with where you've placed them.

To the pics......


The nail polish is Grape Expectations, 15ml £3.95, dries slightly matt which you can keep as is or top with a glossy top coat.

The Rhinestone Nail Stickers are 20 nail stickers of white flowers with different rhinestone colour combos, pink, purple, yellow & green, so one pack would suit lots of different coloured manis. £1.95.

You can create a wish list on their website, mine was as long as my's now as long as both arms!!  

Shipping starts at £2.95 and they ship worldwide, FREE shipping applies over £25 UK & Europe and over £50 USA, Canada & Australia.  Viva La Nails offers next day delivery in the UK, I ordered these yesterday and got them today!

Viva La Nails has loads of quality nail goodies and also offer an affiliate programme, go check them out I can HIGHLY recommend them!  You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Blog & You Tube.

These products were sent to me for my honest review, I can genuinely say the nail polish is fantastic and for the price amazing!  And you gotta love the cute nail stickers! My only suggestion would be is to have the name of the nail polish shade on the bottle or lid.

Tri-Polish Challenge - March Part 1 - Green, Purple, Coral

As soon as I heard about this challenge I wanted in!  This Tri-Polish challenge is being hosted by the lovely Debbie The Crumpet and the rules are pretty straight forward:
  • Each month Crumpet's Nail Tarts will set 3 colours for the challenge. You then choose 1 polish to represent each of those 3 colours. You must stick to those same 3 polishes throughout the entire challenge
  • You must stick to those polishes and cannot change which polish represents which colour.
  • Each Challenge Day, you must use at least 2 of these 3 polishes in your mani. You must also use all 3 polishes at least once.
  • You also have free use of white, black, silver, gold and glitter toppers
  • There is no theme (that was a Brucey bonus for me!)
  • There are 4 posts in the challenge, on the Tuesday and Thursday of the 3rd and 4th week of the month
March - Green, Purple Coral

I didn't use green for this mani and used Bundle Monster Plate 221.  I used Coral as the base colour and stamped with purple which looks a cerise pink on top of the coral.

These are the 3 polishes I'll be using in March, MUA Shade 13, Funky Fingers Riot, Wet n Wild Blazed

Check out the other participants in this fab challenge!

Invogue Parakeet Feathers (Possible Dupe of Nails Inc Chester Feathers)

If you like feather effect polishes I hope you are going to like this!  Nails Inc have released their feather effect polishes retailing at £11 a pop.  Invogue Feather Effect Nails Polishes from Superdrug appear very similar retailing at £3.49!!  No brainer in my opinion.  Invogue have 4 different feather shades, but when I went to Superdrug they only had one bottle of Parakeet so I grabbed it and clung onto it for dear life.  I've not tried the Nails Inc Feather polishes so can't compare coverage, but for looks they are very similar.  I think these are going to be hugely popular.

To the pics (4 coats no base colour)


So what do you think of this gorgeous polish?
