Cinderella Butterflies

These were meant to be shared for the Cinderella premiere but, as you can see, I suck at posting things lately. Sorry about that! I have been busy setting up my Etsy shop, Blissikins Boutique, and making lots of lovely things to stock it, as well as doing a few craft fairs along the way.

As I have now invested a little money here (you can now find the blog at! Much less typing!) I hope my dedication to blogging will increase. :) I certainly have enough photos and new polishes to keep me going for a while.

I made the error of using a Hard Candy polish which is probably older than some of you reading this right now. Cue muchos bubbles. :S But, never mind. The glitter is a combination of cheap silvers, topped off with OPI Nicki Minaj in "Save Me". True story, I picked this up for $8 in Florida when it was being sold in the UK for £18. Yes, I got two bottles!

Recently I discovered a fabulous site here in the UK called Charlie's Nail Art. They sell a wide variety of nail trimmings, including 3D pieces and water decals, stamping plates, glitters, cuticle tattoos, wraps, tools, false nails and gems. All the items they sell are great value, and their delivery is usually next day.

I picked up these metal butterflies used below, 25 pieces for 75p as well as some other items, some for my nails and some for my resin craft. I can't wait to show them all to you!

The butterflies are beautifully delicate and very easy to use. To make them fit better on the nail I picked them up on the pad of my finger and rubbed them gently on the edge of something (I used the edge of a Nails Inc bottle cap). This gives them just enough curve to sit nicely on the nail without sharp bits sticking up and getting in the way. They are so delicate that I found I didn't need to use glue, wet polish is enough to hold them on easily.
