Here are my dark and stripy nails! This has been adorning my finger nails all weekend 🙂
I created the gradient with two polishes from Morgan Taylor. Rebel With A Cause and New Year New Blue.
Then I added the striping tape and it took ages! And I failed miserably at getting the tape even remotely spaced correctly on my dominant hand so I gave up after one nail and have been pottering about all weekend feeling very uneven lol!
The black I used is A England Camelot. then finished it off with a layer of Seche Vite!
here is a (bonus lol) photo with the flash to show the colours a little more 🙂

Today I have my not so good experience with these cuticle tattoo things to share with you…
These have been sent to me for review from Born Pretty
The product is available here Cuticle Tattoo and if you use the discount code RPG10 you’ll get 10% off your order! 🙂
So, how did I get on with this product? As you can see from the picture, not amazingly well!
I followed the instructions on the packet, and I don’t know what was wrong, but the little tattoos did not want to stay where I put them.
I’ve never had to do fake tattoo herding before, hopefully it’s something I’ll not have to do again!
They just kept on lifting up at the edges, and then sticking to anything I tried to use to get them back to where they where supposed to be.
I have to say I’m not a fan of the shininess, maybe a little dab of translucent face powder would fix it. But then again my nail polish is matte which could be accentuating the glossiness.
The cuticle tattoos where really easy to remove, they came straight off when I washed my hands!
I have actually been putting off writing this post since last week, I don’t think I would have been so ummm diplomatic (lol) with my description of this product if I had written about it straight away.
Then it occurred to me (while I was typing) that these do have a redeeming use!
They do make really pretty half moon nail decals! 😀

Today I have three very pretty polishes from Morgan Taylor to share with you. Pretty Wild, Little Misfit and Rebel With a Cause.
Pretty Wild Is a really lovely greyed out lilac. The formula is really nice, it has a very rich and creamy consistency and dried really quickly.
I have to say the colour is extremely similar to Sally Hansen Greige Gardens although Pretty wild is a touch warmer. I should probably do a comparison post of all my purpley grey polishes, I’m starting to get quite a collection!
This is two coats Pretty Wild with no topcoat!
Little Misfit is a very sheer multi chrome polish, it is very pretty! looks like a silvery rainbow in a bottle!
On my ring finger is one coat of Little Misfit over black, on the rest of my nails four coats!
The flash did make the sheerness a little more apparent, there definitely is very noticeable VNL!
But as a topper this polish is really lovely. it dries quickly and the application is really smooth., and it’s shiny enough to not need a top coat.
Rebel With a Cause
Out of these three polishes this one is my favorite. Rebel With a Cause is a stunning deep wine/berry red, with a slight gold shimmer and iridescent micro glitter.
All of the glitters and shimmers in this polish make it look like a metallic finish but without all the pesky brushstrokes!
The coverage with this polish is amazing, with careful application this could be opaque in one coat, this is two coats, because I wasn’t very careful lol
