Born Pretty nail shield review

The first thing I have to say is that these where sent to me when my nails were quite a bit shorter, they have been in my to do pile for quite some time.

This style of nail shield would be perfect on shorter square nails!

they are really easy to attach to the nail either by pressing one into a thick layer of topcoat (which is what I did) or you could use nail glue if you want them to be even more secure.

One thing about these is that they are quite flat, I do have quite a pronounced c curve, so I actually had to bend it with some pliers so it fitted my nail shape. it only took a couple of seconds to do but if you have curved nails like me it’s something thats worth considering.

I think these are really pretty and they are very easy to apply!

Born Pretty BP-17 “Elegant Flower” Stamping Plate Review

*Press Sample*


Today I have another product kindly sent for me for review from Born Pretty!

The sparkly silver glitter polish I used as the base for this is Shooting Star from Rimmel London. it’s as lovely polish but It did need a couple of coats of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp onto.

The stamping polish is Konad Special Polish In Black. I think my bottle is on it’s last legs, the image was really sharp and easy to pick up on the stamper but getting it onto my nail was another matter :/

I only kept going because 1. I’m stubborn and 2. Removing glitter polish is a pain in the butt!

I think I’m going to try this again but with a different stamping polish!

OMG Japanese LED Nail Decal Review!


Hello! I have a really fun product to show you today! ๐Ÿ˜€

These Japanese LED Nail Decals that have been kindly been sent to me from www.omgnailstrips.com.

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.



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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 onlyย  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!ย 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!

Stripey Metallic Roses

Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

Metallic stripey rose nail art

Metallic stripey roses

Today I have another 52 week pick and mix (catch up) mani to show you, the prompts for that week (beginning 2nd March) are Metallic and Ikat…

I’m really not a fan of Ikat nails so for this post I’m just using the metallic prompt.

close up!

The two Metallic polishes I used are Artemis (purple) and Aglaia (teal) from the 2true Metallica Collection.

I started off with a coat of Aglaia, then when it was dry I applied the striping tape to my nails (and my desk and the floor and even my keyboard :/)ย  and added a coat of Artemis.

Removed the tape and applied a coat of Seche Vite.

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
