I wasn’t planning on posting anything today but… I just had to share this with you!
I picked up some A England polishes in the Gothic weekend promotion and they arrived this morning, so of course I had to have a play with them. I tend to swatch one nail so I can get a vague idea of what a polish will be like.
So, I try the lovely dark blue Queen Of Scots, this has to be the creamiest, highly pigmented polish I have tried in a long time! It’s lovely! My next polish test is to see if it’s going to be good for stamping…
Just look at it! The purple is Elaine also from A England.
I would think that Queen Of Scots will be just as vibrant over black polish!
The houndstooth stamping image is from Moyou Pro XL 07
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.
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 🙂
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
omg led decal review
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!
Here are my red and black houndstooth nails, these are for the 52 week pick and mix challenge (that I’m now ridiculously far behind on now! Oops) the prompts where Houndstooth along with Orange, Red and Yellow.
Sally Hansen Ruby Stiletto and Revlon Stiletto!
The two polishes I used for this are Sally Hansen Ruby Stiletto and Revlon Stiletto I only noticed the polish names after I had finished lol!
I also used Moyou Pro Collection 07 XL stamping plate for the houndstooth pattern, Konad special polish in black, some french tip guides and Seche Vite. 😀
So today I have a Polish to show you that I keep meaning to get my grubby paws on and haven’t, until yesterday! That polish is Fantasy Fire from Max Factor!
It really is a stunning polish! it’s a mid shade purple gelly with loads of Duo-chrome micro glitter.
Moyou Pro 07
Annoyingly I was having a really hard time with the stamping it just didn’t want to work, this was my third attempt lol
Anyway, I used:
Fantasy Fire – Max Factor
Good to Grape – Sally Hansen
Black – Konad Special Polish
Color Club Topcoat
I started with two coats of Good to Grape, It’s a really nice light purple but it takes ages to dry when it was eventually dry I added two thin coats of fantasy fire. For the roses I used Moyou Pro plate 07 XL
I couldn’t wait to do some nail art over the Real Color Nail polish from my last post you can find that Here. The colour is so perfect for a Valentine’s Day Mani!
Valentines Day Nail Art
I started by making the gradient on my Thumb, Ring and Middle fingers, for that I used Revlon Black Magic. For my Index finger and Pinky I stamped using Messy Mansion Plate MM16 William Morris and friends, you can find that Here.
I also used an image from this plate for my Ring finger, I used Color Club Antiquated for that, it looks more silver than gold in the photos
Valentines Day Nail Art
For my Thumb and Middle finger I used Moyou Pro Plate 07 XL
As a valentines day Mani goes I think that this one is really rather dark and vampy! 😀
