Born Pretty Store Vortex Water Decals

The last item I have for review are these funky water transfers from Born Pretty Store.
I actually had a bit of trouble with these. They kept coming out backwards (the design would end up face down on my nail) I ended up transferring them onto my hand then peeled them off and applied to my nail the right way around.
They ended up ok in the end though. I’m not sure if I was doing it wrong or if I they have done them backwards :/

Bow embellishment from Born Pretty Store

I was recently sent some items to review from Born Pretty Store.
Here I have one of their cute 3D Bow embellishments.
I decided to copy the pattern on the bow and did the opposite on my accent nail.
I stuck it on with a dab of top coat. I love how cute it looks.

Ulta3’s 10 New Colours Review & Swatches

image

I was recently sent 10 new shades from Ulta3. As soon as I saw them I loved them. The two nudes and the green were calling my name!
These 10 polishes are made in Taiwan again. The most recent easter collection was made in PRC and people were wondering if production had moved back there. It seems it was a one off.
The formula of these polishes is outstanding!
Coverage is fantastic. All colours needed no more than two coats with some being one coaters!

Swatches –

image

Purple primrose
2 coats. A bright magenta purple with an eye catching shimmer.

image

On The Green
2 coats. A beautiful pale green creme polish. One of my favourite greens.

image

Untold Secret
2 coats. An elegant rosey nude. This polish is now my favourite Ulta3!

image

Wild Heart
2 coats but could have used 1. A deep plum purple. May be good for stamping. Great winter colour!

image

Rising Sun
2 coats. Could have used 1.
A thick, creamy, deep sunrise red. The name suits the polish to a T.
Fabulous formula, went on very smoothly.

image

It’s A Bit Grey
2 coats. Could have used 1.
A deep grey creme polish. Lovely to apply and would work well for stamping.

image

Cloud Nine
2 coats. This is a lovely beige nude. It reminds me of pottery clay. A perfect base for many nail art looks.

image

Pop Art
2 coats but could certainly be a one coater. A beautifully deep pink that just pops!
I think it would make for a great stamping polish!

image

Moody Blues
2 coats. An intense deep navy blue creme.
Another perfect formula! Love this colour!

image

Hearts Desire
2 coats. A gorgeous red/pink.
Perfect formula. Would be a great valentines day colour!

I recommend everyone go out and purchase these polishes when they are available. It seems Ulta3 has stepped it up a notch on their already outstanding polishes!

Ulta3 Colour Game Collection Review & Nail Art

PicsArt_1402357596848

I only recently completed this collection a couple of weeks ago when I finally found Emerald Inten-City!

Now that I have them all I thought I’d do a little review and some nail art for you.

PSX_20140610_113357 Colours in the Colour Game Collection are as follows –

(Blue) Block It Out – A stunning bright blue with a beautiful eye-catching shimmer.

(Orange) Bright Me – A straight up in your face orange. This also has a beautiful shimmer.

(Green) Emerald Inten-City – A lovely emerald green. One of my favorite colours in the collection! Also has a slight shimmer.

(Pink) Tone It Up – This colour is just wonderful. It is a deep and bright

watermelon colour pink.

(Purple) Palette Play – The perfect purple. Not too bright and too dark. A very versatile purple.

I wanted to use all the colours in one nail art look.

I went for a half moon, striping tape mani.

PhotoGrid_1402319347679

□ Apply base coat. I used G&G Stuck on blu!

□ Apply a white base colour.

□ Apply fast drying topcoat to all nails. I used HK Girl Topcoat.

□ Once dry, apply a half moon nail vinyl. I used @teismom vinyls.

□ Apply four lines of striping tape making 5 even spaces.

□ Fill each of the spaces with different colours.

□ Immediately remove your striping tape and nail vinyls. Make sure you do this when the polish is still wet to achieve clean lines.

□ Clean up any excess polish on or around the cuticle.

□ Wait for the colours to dry a bit before applying topcoat to avoid smudging.

It looks like lollies!

PicsArt_1402357596848   I would say this is a must have collection for all nail polish enthusiasts!

Fun Striping Tape Mani

I thought I’d have a play around with some striping tape!
This mani was pretty fiddly. All that tape! Lol
It was well worth it in the end though!

Colours – Ulta3 Corsican Rose & Snazzle
Base & Topcoat by Glisten & Glow.

Here is a pictorial 🙂

image

□ Apply base coat. I used G&G Stuck on blu!
□ Apply 3 coats of chosen colour.
□ Add a glitter coat to pointer and pinky.
□ Apply fast drying topcoat to all nails. I used HK Girl Topcoat.
□ Once dry, use two pieces of striping tape to make a cross on your nail. Then add more tape making smaller triangles in each of the four corners.
□ Apply silver polish over the whole nail covering all of the tape.
□ Immediately remove your striping tape. Make sure you do this when the polish is still wet.
□ Clean up any excess polish on or around the cuticle.
□ Wait for the silver to dry a bit before applying topcoat to avoid smudging.

Hope you guys enjoy and give it a go!

Galaxy Nails Ulta3 Nail Art

PicsArt_1402098423095

I absolutely love galaxy nails! I love how they look, how much depth they can have and how creative you can be doing them!

 

As always I started with a great base coat.

Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!

PSX_20140607_161042Also finishing with G&G HK Girl Topcoat.

Colours used for this mani are all Ulta3

 PSX_20140607_161025Firstly I put down one coat of midnight fever. I then put one coat of the amazingly sparkly triple threat (perfect for galaxy nails!)

Once that was reasonably dry I got a makeup sponge and put a line of lily white diagonally across my nail.  I did the same with blue marlin, tone it up & gingerbread making sure to leave some of each colour showing. I then topped with stop the press.

PSX_20140607_161113

Stop the press is an awesome topper for all kinds of manis, including galaxy nails!
