Here are some really pretty Magico Nail Stickers that have been sent to me for review from Born Pretty
You can find them right here Magico Paper Fan and what’s even better is at the moment they are half price, and for non sale items you can use the code RPG10 for 10% off! 🙂
In this pack there is a lovely selection of pink and white blossom, buds, petals and the cute red fans.
I was a little bit worried that these stickers might be slightly transparent and the black stamping would show through the stickers, but I’m pleased to say that it didn’t at all.
One thing I did find a little bit annoying about them is they don’t stick very well to Seche Vite, they kept peeling up at the edges. To make sure that it wasn’t a problem with the stickers after I had removed this mani I tried a couple of the flowers over Nails Inc 2 in 1, and there was no sign of the peely edges!
The other stuff I used for this
Barry M Blueberry
- Filthy Gorgeous Air-Kiss
- Sinful Colors Snow Me White
- Hit the Bottle Black
- Moyou Suki 02
- Seche Vite
I think these stickers are a really nice quality product that’s really easy to use!
Here are some Spooky Halloween Spiders!
I decided to have a go at a new to me technique called a Radial Gradient, If you haven’t come across this before, it’s circular so instead of painting the polish across the sponge you paint it in a circle, then apply it to the nail in the same way.
I think that for a first attempt I was far to ambitious trying to use four shades (I should have tried with two to start with)
The products I used are
- A England – Elaine
- Revlon – Amethyst
- China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
- Revlon – Stiletto
- Stamping Plate – Moyou Suki 10
- Hit The Bottle – Black
- Seche Vite
- Makeup Sponge
For the gradient I used Stiletto, Elaine, Amethyst and Get Outta My Space, then a coat of Seche Vite.
When that had dried I used Black Hit The Bottle stamping polish and Moyou Suki plate 10 for the spiders and webs then another coat of SV to finish it off.
I have so many ideas for Halloween nail art that I think it’s going to take me all month to share them all! 🙂
GOT Polish Challenge Over a White Base
It seems like ages since I last posted nail art for the GOT Polish Challenge! But that’s probably because it has been ages
For today’s prompt I chose a very simple stamped design, I used White on White from China Glaze… I think my bottle is now more polish thinner than actual polish… It’s probably time to retire it and get a new one!
I used Propaganda from Illamasqua to stamp the image, and the stamping plate is 07 from Moyou’s Suki collection.
Illamasqua Propaganda Over White on White China Glaze
Propaganda is getting to be a vhtf polish 😦 I have only found a couple of other dark blue jelly polishes with a similar colour intensity these are Blue-Topia from Color Club and L’orial Midnight Mistress.
Moyou Suki 07
I think this looks like Willow pattern from ceramic plates lol!
Don’t forget to check out the GOT Polish pinterest page
For today’s inspired by a flag prompt I decided on the Japanese flag!
Inspired by the Japanese flag
I started out with two coats of White On White from China Glaze as the base. Then using Dragon from Chanel and a thin brush I added the red!
The stamp is plate 02 from Moyou’s Suki collection.
White on white, Dragon and Konad SP Black
This is the first time I have used my new marshmallow stamper, it’s such a different technique than using my usual firmer (but still squishy) one!
I think that with a bit more practice, (especially with the amount of polish on the stamping plate, and getting used to squashing my nail into the stamper rather than rolling it over my nail!) it’s going to be my favorite! 😀
Japanese Flag With Cherry Blossom
I really have missed blogging soo much! It’s so nice to have the time to get back to regular posting 😀
Orange with bats
For my Orange nails I have a Halloween mani to show you 🙂
I really couldn’t work out what to do for my nails today. I don’t like orange nail polish, I don’t hate it, I just don’t like it. I feel the same way about yellow nail polish, I don’t like that either.
As I don’t actually own any “orange” nail polish, I decided to use the same polishes from my GOT polish challenge orange water marble mani, you can find that Here.
I started with a couple of coats of East Austin from Color Club, then using the cling film technique I applied Roguish Red from China Glaze. to make the orange coloured background.
For the bats I used Konad SP in black with plate 10 from the Moyou Suki collection.
I finished it off with Color Club topcoat, there is a little bit of shrinking but it’s not too bad. 🙂
China Glaze Roguish Red over Color Club East Austin
I made my first franken polish! 😀
I had a clear mini polish ( I think it was a top coat) from a cheap glitter set I picked up, and I knew that I was never going to use it so instead of leaving at the back of a draw, forgotten and covered in dust I decided to mix it with some other polishes to make something I would (hopefully) like and use!
Blue Jelly Sandwich
I emptied the mini clear polish into a larger nail polish bottle then I added around eight drops of Propaganda from Illamasqua, I really love the dark blue colour of Propaganda, it’s so intensely pigmented that eight drops was enough for the blue colour.
I wanted my blue jelly to have a bit of shimmer so I mixed in some Mikado from Astor, this is a teal/green duo-chrome (ish) colour. I have swatched this polish once and it’s not as nice on as it looks in the bottle, so i’m glad that I got to use it for something. I must have added around twenty drops of it before I was happy with it.
Then I added four/five drops of Strap On Your Moon Boots from China Glaze, as you can’t go wrong with a bit of holo sparkle!
My First Franken Polish
For the stamp I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen and Moyou Suki collection plate 02 I used three coats of my franken jelly polish with a stamp between each layer!
I’m rubbish at naming things so… What do you think I should I call my new polish?
