From the OMG website – “The LED light chip is powered by NFC fields given off by most Android phones, Point of Sale Machines, Apple Pay and many other electronics, meaning when in the presence of these NFC fields your nail will light up and blink.”

And OMG are also in the process of designing an App for Android that would allow the nail to light up when you get different types of notifications on your phone. How amazing is that!?

OMG supply two types of led stickers, one specifically for Gel polish which is the chip on it’s own and the set with stickers is for use with regular nail polish.

The Decals are $5.99 per pack with free international shipping and are available in White, Green and Blue, for Gel and White, Red and Blue for regular polish!

Both chips I have to show you today are white ones!

Here is a little video (be nice, I don’t do videos often lol) of the chip for Gel polish directly on the back of my phone.

The LEDs for Acrylic and Gel are available Here

Pink Roses

Applying the chip was really simple, the clear part of the decal is really easy to trim to size, I used a couple of coats of black polish to hide the chip, being very careful not to cover the LED.

Flash!

Flash!

I decided to use the pink rose accent sticker from the set. I found that the adhesive on the stickers is very strong, so repositioning it is a bit of a challenge.

I used Seche Vite topcoat and I did find that the Accent sticker went a little bit crinkly as the polish dried. I don’t know if a non quick dry topcoat would have the same effect on the accent stickers, unfortunately I don’t have any on hand to try!

Here’s another little video of it in action. This time on my nail :)

The decals for using with regular polish are available Here

The other products I used for this look are

  • Barry M – Shocking Pink
  • Butter London – Frilly Knickers
  • Illamasqua – Scorn
  • Moyou – Pro collection XL 07
  • Konad – Special Polish Black
  • Seche Vite Topcoat

I found that to get the best and brightest flashes I had to be holding my phone close to where the NFC chip is located. Unfortunately these won’t work with iphones.

Make sure that NFC setting is turned on on your phone or the LED won’t work!

I really do like these LED decals, they are so fun to wear!

Omen, Shocking Pink, Hot Like Lava and Snow Me White

This is the first time I have tried Omen, it’s amazing! So green and sparkly! it dries really quickly to a lovely satin finish too!

For the flowers I used a medium and small dotting tool starting with Snow Me White, I used the medium size dotting tool and placed five dots in a circle, then with the small dotting tool i added the Shocking Pink and a final dot of Hot Like Lava in the middle.

Not that you can really see from the pictures, I added leaves and swirly patterns with a silver nail art pen… But as soon as I added the topcoat it all vanished! :(

So Green!

I don’t think I have ever experienced vanishing nail art before lol. But I still like this even without the silver!

Hello! :D

Rhinestone Spider Born Pretty

Rhinestone Spider

Today I have some cute Rhinestone spider nail gems that have been sent to me for review from BornPretty to show you.

Rhinestone Spider

SPIDERS!

You can find them right here! Born Pretty Rhinestone Spiders and if you use the code RPG10 you can get 10% off!

Rhinestone Spider

NYC 001 – Evil

The other things I used for this mani are

  • NYC – Evil
  • Color Club – Lumin-Iceant
  • Moyou Pro Collection XL stamping plate 05
  • Seche Vite

I started out with two coats of Evil, it’s a nice black cream but, that name! Evil! Who thought that one up? ugh!

I used Lumin-Iceant to stamp the spiderweb design from Moyou Pro 05 and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite

When that had dried it was time to apply the spider, But I found this…

Rhinestone Spider

Not very flat at all!

The back of the spider wasn’t flat, it looks to be something to do with the manufacturing process.

So I decided to remove it using an old metal nail file, it only took a couple of minutes and it worked really well! Although it was a little bit fiddly to keep a good grip on the spider while filing as they are tiny!

Now I have a flat bottomed spider. I applied a thick coat of Seche Vite to my ring finger nail and positioned it on my nail using tweezers, and gently pressed it onto the nail until the topcoat had dried.

I think these little spiders are really cute, but I really like spiders! :D


Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello! :)

Today I have Stained Glass nail art to share with you

Stained Glass Nail Art

Stained Glass Nail Art

For this I used

  • Revlon – Stiletto
  • Rimmel – Shooting Star (Space Dust)
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
  • Moyou Gothic Collection 04
  • Konad Black
  • Seche Vite
  • Permanent Marker Pens

Stained Glass Nail Art

I started our with a Glittery base, I used two coats of Shooting star followed by one coat of prism.

As Shooting Star is a textured polish, I added a coat of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp over.

I used Konad Special Polish in Black for the Image. Then another coat of SV over the stamping!

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

My first attempt to add colour to my stained glass nails was with my tinted polishes, and it really didn’t go well! It was lumpy, bubbly and the colours really weren’t bright enough. I had only  tried this on my index finger so I hid the horrible mess with a coat of Stiletto.

This was a bit of an experiment to see if it would work! I coloured in my nails using permanent marker pens! I only tried it because I thought I was going to take off the polish and start again!

It’s very pretty but It’s probably not the best idea I’ve had… I should probably invest in some good quality tinted polishes!

I didn’t add any topcoat over the ink, I tried on my pinky nail and the Seche Vite dissolved the colours, so I covered that with a coat of Stiletto as well.

Permanent Marker Pens…

I didn’t wear this for very long, and I wouldn’t recommend colouring in your nails with permanent marker pens!

GLITTER!

I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.

Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.

When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.

Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

Messy Mansion MM21

I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. :D

For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.

Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.

I absolutely love this polish! It’s all of my favorite polish colours in one bottle! :D Look at that holo sparkle! Oh and It looks so squishy!

Gravestone Nails Tara's Talons Tomb Moyou Gothic 04

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

I couldn’t resist doing a little stamping over this, with a name like Tomb it needed some gravestones!

The image is from Moyou Gothic Collection 04 and for some reason the stamping was not working :( this was the third try, and I’d had enough so I just tried to tidy it up a bit with my Barry M Nail Art Pen…

couldn't resist adding the gravestones.

Couldn’t resist adding the gravestones.

At least they look like gravestones now rather than a dreadful mess lol! :)
