Born Pretty French Tip Guides Review

Hello! :)

Today I have a review of some French Tip Guides kindly sent to me from Born Pretty.

Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and Tip Guides from Born Pretty Store

Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and Tip Guides from Born Pretty Store

For this I used Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and of course the Tip Guides!

These guides are really good quality, just sticky enough to adhere nicely to the nail with out being so sticky they take off the polish underneath. I decided to really test them by using the guides over the textured glitter polish… Amazingly there was no polish bleeding under the tape!

Neutral colours

I decided on some neutral colors as I’ve been using so many dark and metallic polishes lately I really needed a change!

Purple Flames

Hey everyone :)

Purple Flames nail art

FIRE!!!!

Today I have another mani for the pick and mix challenge! This weeks prompts are fire and three shades of green or yellow, and as I’m really not in a green/yellow mood, it had to be purple! :D

Messy Mansion MM27

For this I used Sally Hansen HD in Cyber, I’d Melt For You from China Glaze (only because it was on my desk and I didn’t feel like hunting through my collection to find another good silver for stamping) and Konad Special polish in Black.

The stamping plate is MM27 from Messy Mansion, you can find that here, Messy Mansion MM27

Double Stamped and Leadlight Roses

Hello! :D

Roses!

ILNP My Little Glacier and China Glaze I’d Melt For You

My nails today where a bit of an experiment! I was really at a loss about what to do for my post today.

So I closed my eyes and grabbed the first two polishes from my polish pile! Then I did the same with my box of stamping plates!

Leadlight Roses

Leadlight Roses

The polishes are My Little Glacier (H) from ILNP and I’d Melt For You from China Glaze. I also used two of the tinted polishes I mixed a while ago, along with Konad special polish in black.  The stamping plate is MM07 from Messy Mansion.

I started with a couple of coats of My Little Glacier, then using the center leaf pattern from plate MM07. Here’s the link to the plate Messy Mansion MM07

Then using I’s Melt for you I added the barbed wire and the roses.  I used the dark purple and the dark blue tinted polishes to colour the roses here’s a link to the post if you want more information on how I mixed the Leadlight Polishes

Holographic nail polish makes me so happy!

I think I’m going to have to try randomly picking polishes and stamping plates again some time!


Born Pretty Stamping Plate BP-05 Review

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Hello! :D

Silver and Black Stamped Gradient

Silver and Black Stamped Gradient

Today I have a Born Pretty stamping plate that has kindly been sent to me for review!

You can find BP-05 plate here!

BP-05-born-pretty-stamping-plate-review

BP-05

Plate BP-05 has a really eclectic bunch of images! That Owl is really cute, and I really like the vine and leaf patterns.

My first impression of the images is that the etching looks really sharp and quite deep! unlike some other plates in the same price range.

The smaller full nail images are (with the help of my ruler) 19mm by 15mm and the larger image (at the top) is 23mm by 15mm.

The plate is 55mm across, so the plate is the same size as BM plates.

The Back of the plate has a durable paper backing.

edge

And the edge of the plate has been finished really nicely. Its not sharp at all! For me this is actually really important, I’m forever accidentally cutting or scratching my fingertips on the sharp edges of plates! :(

China Glaze I'd Melt For You and Laval Black

China Glaze I’d Melt For You and Laval Black

I decided to try out the swirly vine pattern from this plate, partly because I think it’s a really pretty image and partly because it’s a bold design that wouldn’t loose too much detail over the gradient.

And the gradient is because my nails are longer than the stamp image… Oops! :D

I used China Glaze I’d Melt For You and Laval Black for the gradient, this mani looks really thick, because for some reason my sponge decided to disintegrate a bit on the last coat and left annoying sponge turds all over the place Gah! :/ So after a bit of tweezering some swearing and around 3 coats of Seche Vite later my nails where ready for stamping.

I used some more I’d Melt For You for the stamping along with my squishy marshmallow stamp head. The image itself is really sharp and it transferred to my nails really cleanly. one final coat of topcoat and it was all done! :)

There was even a tiny bit of actual sunshine, in between the rain and hail. Yay! :D

shades of pink purple and silver

I’m surprised that with using just these two polishes, there are so many shades of pink and purple in this mani!

I think I’m going to have to do some watermarble experimenting with dark colours! :D
