{Review} Born Pretty Store Goodies

Good Morning all you lovelies,

I was sent some awesome goodies to test & try from Born Pretty Store and boy were they goodies!

I am part of the affiliate program and I was emailed by my rep who gave me a budget and I got to choose what I wanted to review. I chose 4 items but today I am only going to show you 2 of them.

Review copyI have been brain storming the heck out of these 2 items to see what I could come up with. I am so excited to show you what I did because a massive amount of time and effort went in it.

20141105_214813So I used the following items for my Mani:

The water decal SH02 & the 3D Nail Jewel.

20141105_214837I went for a full on vintage look.

I spent a great deal of time cutting out all the little flowers and putting them on my nails but I also added a full nail to show you what it would look like.

It was really easy to apply the decals, I just submerged them in a bit of water for a minute & then placed them on my nails using a tweezers.

In terms of the 3D jewel I used Seche Vite to attach it to my nail (Although nail glue would make it stick longer). But if you lost a jewel that would be ok because you get 5 if you order them.

I painted a Matte topcoat over everything to seal it off and tah-dah a super easy vintage mani.

What do you think?

Saturday Seeds #2

Happy Saturday Lovelies,

So today is the second installment to my Saturday Seeds Adventure.

I found a Seed I wanted to try but man did I struggle to do it.

FloraHues_26

This time I decided to pull direct inspiration from the image and attempt to paint a (If anyone knows the name of this flower please let me know, I looked high and low) Trumpet Flower.

Ok so let me show you which colours I picked for today.

20140610_205844

I used the following:

  • Essence Thats What I Mint
  • Essence Absolutely Blue
  • SinfulColors in Lavender
  • Tip Top in Purple Bow Peep
  • Essence Roller Coaster
  • Revlon ColorStay Cafe Pink

I didnt have a colour close to the light shade so I substituted it “That’s What I Mint”, also I just realised that Purple Bow Peep has infact not been featured on the blog yet… oops lol. #sneakpeak

Ok so now the nails 😀

I wont lie, I removed the designs a few times because it would look sort of ok and then i would mess it up by adding too much of a colour. I thought this was pretty but I wanted it to look different so I added a matte top coat.

I love it so much more in the matte finish!

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

Hello lovelies,

I cannot stand winter! And it seems to have creeped in while nobody was looking! The skies outside today are gloom and doom grey and threatening to burst at any second!

So to brighten my day and anyone elses that is affected by gloomy weather I give you… Flip Flop Fantasy 😀

Flip Flop Fantasy

This was my go-to Summer Colour, it has a pretty cool matte finish BUT I personally struggled a bit with streaking. A good topcoat seemed to fix it!

Plus it lives up to its name… It looks great with flip flops! I had it on my toes for weeks.

What do you think?

All the Best

Inglot 715 Matte Nail Polish

715

715

This was my first ever Inglot polish, I got is about 2 years ago, yes that’s correct 2 years! I think that is the brilliant  thing about their polishes, I have not had to thin it down it still works as if it were brand new.

This beige polish is one of my all time fav’s because of its matte finish and super smooth application.

Have you ever tried Inglot polishes?

All The Best
