Sorry about the lack of posts last week, I managed to cut my finger don’t worry, it’s on my dominant hand so there won’t be any gory pictures! And I’ve also have a cold (ugh, stoopid germs).
But now that I have dragged myself out of my sofa cocoon and polish remover isn’t really painful to use. I can share with you a two part post starting with these Monster Eyes! 🙂
For my monster eye nails I used
- Revlon – Stiletto
- Illamasqua – poke
- Sally Hansen – Blue Streak
- Barry M – Crystal Glaze
- Seche Vite
- Illamasqua – Matte Top Coat
Thinking about it I didn’t really think through the steps for making the eyes. So I think they do look a little messy round the edges.
The gradient is Poke and Blue Streak with a coat of Crystal Glaze over the top, then with a thin brush I added the eye shape using Stiletto.
In hindsight I should have used tape or something to mask off the eyes, It would have made the edges of the matte topcoat look a lot cleaner.
A quick question… Have you seen a nail polish that looks like the picture above? If you have please let me know, as I want something like this on my nails right now 🙂
As I’m sure you can tell the photograph isn’t nail polish, its wax! Which brings me on to the second part of my post!
I want to show you some wax melts from a really lovely little company here in the UK. It’s not often that I come across wax melts that I’m really impressed with, but these honestly are amazing! Before I carry on I should let you know that I purchased these myself!
I have pet rats, at the moment I have 8 of the whiskery critters in my living room, and like any pets they can get really rather stinky, so I do end up looking for lovely room fragrances quite often.
These wax melts are so loaded with fragrance that one quarter of a pot is enough to scent the whole of my apartment all day!
If my nostrils could sing with happiness they would be, and not in a creepy old man nose whistle way!
The Candlewick Greens Shop is right here if you would like to have a look 🙂 http://www.candlewick-greens.appspot.com/index.html
Autumn Wreath is the melt I have in my warmer right now, it’s so nice, slightly spiced apples and crunchy leaves!
There is a facebook group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/740123009371304/?fref=ts
it’s the best place to fins out about the restocks and upcoming new scents 😀
Gingerbread Latte smells just like the drink, I have found that some coffee/creamy scented candles and melts (from a well known brand that happens to start with the letter Y) have this nasty chemical plastic smell. But not these, they smell heavenly!
Another wonderful thing about these wax melts is that most of them are covered in glitter and shimmers! Yay for glitter 😀
The best way to order these lovely melts is through the ready to ship page. http://www.candlewick-greens.appspot.com/readytoship.html
Sticky Toffee Pumpkin Waffle smells so amazing I want to eat it! But I’m sure it wouldn’t taste nearly as good lol!
Out of all the different scent collections on offer at candlewick Greens I have to say my favorite is the Mystical ones!
But I have found one little problem with the bakery scents… Being surrounded by wonderful cake smells makes me really hungry! 😀
Oh if you do make an order for some of this lovely wax (you really won’t be disappointed) if you could leave a note with your order about finding out about them here that would be amazing! 😀
