Nail Polish Jewelry

Hey! πŸ™‚

nail polish jewelry

I have been making nail polish jewelry! It really is so much fun!

The only difficult bit for me was deciding which polishes to use πŸ™‚

I picked up the findings and glass cabochons from ebay.Β  there are so many potions to choose from, and after spending ages searching I decided to go with a kit that had everything.

I’m not really a big fan of the brass/gold coloured findings, so If I make any more in the future I might go with the antique silver ones!

this necklace is a double sided one, with the cats on one side and the roses on the other πŸ™‚

These earrings where the first thing that I made. I added far to much glue to the back of the cabochons and ended up in a dreadful mess lol

I’ve had quite a few people asking where I got these from, but these are just for me, I really don’t have any interest in making loads of these to sell, I think it would take the fun out of making them!

Born Pretty Nail Shield Review

*Press Sample*

Hello! πŸ™‚

Born Pretty nail shield review

Here is a rather pretty 3d Nail Shield that has kindly been sent to me for review from Born Pretty

the nail shields are available here Born Pretty Nail Shield the style I’m wearing today is number 20!

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!

Nails Inc Paint Can Shoreditch Lane!

Hello! πŸ™‚

Ok I admit it, I just ran out to buy this!

Nails Inc Paint Can Shoreditch Lane

Spray on nail polish! I had to try it! πŸ˜€

Ln the spray can you get 50ml of product and the 2 in 1 is 5ml. I don’t know how many full manicures you’ll get from the can.

According to Nails Inc this is how to apply this spray in nail polish!

Step 1. This part is essential – you must apply a base coat, we suggest Paint Can’s Best Friend – the Nails inc 2 in 1 Base and Top coat. Allow to dry.

Or apply The Paint Can over your nail polish for a speedy colour change.

Step 2. Shake the Paint Can and from a distance of 10-15cm, spray the polish directly onto the nail area. (Cover and protect the surface you are spraying on to).

Step 3. For a longer lasting mani (for up to four days), apply a top coat. Allow to dry.

Step 4. With warm soapy water wash away any excess Paint Can polish from skin and cuticles. Or use a cleansing wipe when on the go.

You will be left with a perfectly applied manicure.

from these instructions the thing really got my attention is spraying it over the nail polish your already wearing… I think this is going to open up a whole new collection of nail art techniques!

Here are my (slightly stained) nails all prepped with the Nails Inc 2 in 1 and ready to go!

And here’s my nails and hands covered in spray paint!

Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Paint Can

Hahaha there was So much mess!

I don’t know about the pink spray but if you are going to use the silver, make sure your not wearing anything that you mind getting a thin coating of sparkles over, it’s in my hair, over my clothes, the whole of my bathroom is slightly sparkly! Oops!

But I don’t really mind as I’m usually covered in glitter! πŸ˜€

This photo is without the topcoat! It really is a lovely chrome!

I have to say that the polish comes away from the skin really easily, I found it was even easier to remove by soaking my hand in warm water for a few minutes.

It was slightly more difficult to remove the polish from my cuticles, I has to scrape it away with an orange stick.

When I applied the 2 in 1 as topcoat something rather strange happened.

There was rather a lot of what I can only describe as antiquing, and there is also some cloudiness to the tips of my nails, like a matte french tip, interestingly this is the same problem I have with Out The Door topcoat on normal nail polish (which is why I don’t use it).

Then I tried applying Seche Vite.

Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane

There is still a little antiquing, it’s not as bad and there’s no odd matte tips!

You can find the silver Paint Can here Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane (UK Only)

This is a really fun product! and yes it does exactly what it says on the tin! For me I don’t know if it is any faster than using a normal one coat polish with base and topcoat, as it did take a little while to clean the polish from my skin. I think this will be an amazing product if you are not not so good at painting your dominant hand!

My final thoughts on the 2 in 1 makes a good base coat, not so much as a top coat with this silver can.

I really hope that Nails Inc release some more Paint Can colours!

Is spray on nail polish something you would consider using?

Born Pretty Nail Art Studs

The studs are made from thin metal, they are really light and slightly flexible while keeping quite a domed profile.

I applied them by pressing them into wet topcoat. You could always use nail glue to apply them if you want them to be a bit more secure.

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

Hello!

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

The images on this plate are so pretty! πŸ™‚

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!

Double Stamped and Leadlight Roses

Hello! πŸ˜€

Roses!

ILNP My Little Glacier and China Glaze I’d Melt For You

My nails today where a bit of an experiment! I was really at a loss about what to do for my post today.

So I closed my eyes and grabbed the first two polishes from my polish pile! Then I did the same with my box of stamping plates!

Leadlight Roses

Leadlight Roses

The polishes are My Little Glacier (H) from ILNP and I’d Melt For You from China Glaze. I also used two of the tinted polishes I mixed a while ago, along with Konad special polish in black.Β  The stamping plate is MM07 from Messy Mansion.

I started with a couple of coats of My Little Glacier, then using the center leaf pattern from plate MM07. Here’s the link to the plate Messy Mansion MM07

Then using I’s Melt for you I added the barbed wire and the roses.Β  I used the dark purple and the dark blue tinted polishes to colour the roses here’s a link to the post if you want more information on how I mixed the Leadlight Polishes
