Guest Contributor: Abi's Nail Art - Crystals!

12:02 Posted In , , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
My guest contributor Abi is back with some new designs for us. Abigail is always very busy fighting all manner of very nasty illnesses and despite feeling very poorly always takes the time to have totally awesome nails! I think we're really lucky that she also takes the time to share them with us too! :)

Everyone has a favourite glitter top coat, and if you don't, you should! Try experimenting by putting your favourite glitter over different coloured polishes as Abi has done below for different effects.

 Boots 17 - "Turquoise", Fithy Gorgeous - "Prism" glitter top coat, and heart, moon and star crystals from Poundland.

Posh Polish by Beauty UK @ Superdrug - "Lilac Girl", Filthy Gorgeous - "Prism" with crystal detail.

Acessorize (for Superdrug) "Princess" 3D range, with an extra top coat of Filthy Gorgeous - "Prism".

And one last one without Prism, just because it's beautifully colourful!

Hello Kitty @ Superdrug - "Beatbox", Posh Polish by Beauty UK @ Superdrug - "Intergalactic", with crystals.

Testing: Nails Inc Magnetic

16:33 Posted In , , , , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
Sorry for the multiple postings today, guys and girls. Christmas has been hectic (as usual!) and post-Christmas almost moreso, I have a backlog of photographs!

Believe it or not, I'd never tried magnetic polish before. I bought one when it first came out, in fact I was on a waiting list for it before it first came out, but on my way home from eventually buying it I went to visit a friend who was ill, gave it away, and never got around to buying another one. The other week Boots had a bargain bin of Nails Inc, so I picked up a bottle of "Picadilly" gold sparkle with new "fishnet" magnetic effect cap. Now, I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed. I'm also going to guess that the image on the bottle cap has been digitally adjusted, because I have not been able to find another photograph where the effect is as strong as it is on the cap image. Which is disappointing, as the effect doesn't really look like much. I think the problem is the glitter. I'm tempted to pick up a different non-glittery magnetic polish, and try the fishnet cap on that, because I think it's the larger glitter flakes that deminish the effect of the pattern.


Review: WooWoo Nail Wraps

04:26 Posted In , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
I was a very lucky girl this Christmas, and received LOTS of lovely nail treats! One of which was these lovely WooWoo nail wraps. I've never tried nail wraps before, and I have to say I was very impressed at how easy they were to apply. I'm not going to do a tutorial post, because they are all over the place and there is a very good one on the WooWoo Nails site, but for a first time they were very easy to apply and I was impressed with how they turned out (my cutting out does need to be a bit neater, but I did use a Stanley knife).

WooWoo also offer a Design Your Own service, which I'm sure I will be taking advantage of in the future! You can upload any image and have it made into nail wraps! Match dresses or outfits exactly, even with the same print, or just put your own pictures on! Love it!

Guest Contributor! Fairy Dust.

I'm very lucky to have a guest contributor today! One of my very best friends, Abi, is as into nails as I am, and has kindly agreed to share some of her designs and experiments with us. Yay! :)

Abi has used two coats of "Blimanche" by Filthy Gorgeous at Debenhams, and two coats of "Prism" from the same range, which are both £2.70 (down from £10) at the moment in their sale! We agreed that "Prism" looks a lot like a little sprinkling of fairy dust. Who doesn't need a little fairy dust?!
