Here's another new collection from Avon, The Sassy Florals from the Mark Gel Shine Range.  A set of 3 hot and 3 pastel shades, perfect for Spring and Summer.  All are 2 coats without top coat to show you how glossy they are, however, I would always recommend using a top coat to increase the longevity of your mani.

BORN PRETTY STORE holographic nail polish Item #43343 Shade BP-NR04 Pink Garden of Eden

I've another gorgeous holographic nail polish from Born Pretty Store called Pink Garden of Eden.
The polish has a sheer milky iridescent base with a fine sprinkling of holographic particles.  I applied 2 coats of Pink Garden of Eden and topped with 1 coat of top coat, the polish dries a little matte, so you need a glossy top coat.  In the sunshine the holographic particles sparkle.
Comes in a dinky 6ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip at the bottom.

Born Pretty Store Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish - Item #44184 - Shade #BP-MH02 Give My Heart

I'm so loving the Magnetic Cat Eye nail polishes from Born Pretty Store.  I have another one to share with you called Give My Heart.  It has a sheer dark base crammed with gold flakies and when you apply the magnet you get an amazing cosmic green stripe across the nail, it's truly amazing.  It reminds me of the aurora borealis.
I applied the Magnetic Cat Eye nail polish over a black base, if I hadn't, I would've had to apply quite a lot of coats to achieve the same effect. There are 6 colours in the collection and this is number BP-MH02 and I bet all of the other colours are just as fantastic as this one.
If you use magnetic nail polishes you'll know the magnetic stripe becomes less sharp as it dries.  Comes in a 6 ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip at the bottom for a demonstration.
The Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish  is currently $4.99 / £3.77 / €4.26.

NICOLE DIARY - Set of 8 pots of Nail Art Glitter Sequins & Iridescent Flakes

I recently purchased a set of 8 glitters from Nicole Diary on Amazon for nail art.  The set contains 4 pots of sequin glitter in red & blue, fuchsia pink and silver, gold and red, blue & gold, and 4 pots of hexagonal shaped iridescent flakes in lilac, pink, green and purple.  
I tried them using UV Gel nail polishes and regular nail polishes and the worked fine with both.
I've used the glitters for nail art, and the box states they can be used for makeup and beauty and artwork.
Check out my video demonstration at the end of this post.
 Below, using the pink, green and lilac hexagonal iridescent flakes over a blue/green base (Avon Mint To Be).  This is my mermaid mai.

Born Pretty Store Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish Item #45042 Shade BP-JM04 Unawakened In Dreams

For today's nails I'm using a Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish from Born Pretty Store named Unawakened In Dreams.  There are 8 colours in the collection and this is number BP-JM04.  In the bottle looks like a green bronze shimmer, however, once you apply the magnet, a dark grey base appears with a gold shimmer cat eye.  The polish is sheer and I had to apply 5 coats to achieve the dark base to come through.  Note to self, it might be better to apply over a dark base.  If you use magnetic nail polishes you'll know that the magnetic stripe becomes less sharp as it dries.  Comes in a 6 ml bottle.
Check out my YouTube clip at the bottom for a demonstration.
The Magnetic Cat Eye Nail Polish  is currently $2.99 / £2.26 / €2.55.

Aztec Dream full wrap water decals from Sparkly Nails

For today's mani I've used full wrap water decals from Sparkly Nails called 'Aztec Dream'.
I applied the wraps over a white base, it's not imperative to have a base colour, but I like to have them painted in case part of the wrap doesn't completely cover your nail.  You need to have some patience with the full wrap water decals, you need to allow them to dry and attach to your nail, so take time to apply them.  Any excess decal which has attached to your skin can be removed with nail polish remover and a brush.
If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go.  Remove the protective clear film, trim, soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails and seal with top coat - done!
If you love water decals as much as me, why not join the Facebook group I've just set up called Wonderful Water Decals.
To the pics!!!!
 
 
The Aztec Dream full wrap water decals are currently £0.99.   Available at Sparkly Nails who have an amazing range of nail art items; they offer a loyalty and affiliate scheme, go sign up, I have, you may as well save as you spend!

You can also keep up with all the latest Sparkly Nails info on FacebookInstagramTwitter & Pinterest, and while your there check out their special Daily Deal! Sparkly Nails is a UK based company and ships worldwide. UK postage starts at £1.50.

Avon Color Trend Nail Enamels - Occult Burgundy, Impressive Ruby, Mysterious Brown, Extreme Orange

Avon has launched 4 new shades to the Color Trend range, a selection of plum, pink and orange shades.  I don't know why Avon have waited until now to release them, these shades are perfect for Autumn, but really you can wear whatever colour you like, whenever you like.
The Color Trend range is Avon's budget-friendly collection, usually priced at £1.50 for an 8ml bottle.  The formulation is superb and very well pigmented, super nail enamels at a bargain price, I highly recommend these shades.
Onto the photos.  The camera flash has lightened the shades, see my video at the bottom which gives a better representation of the shades.
All manis are 2 coats without top coats to show you how glossy they are, however, I always recommend a top coat.
