Born Pretty Store Christmas Tree Nail Deco

Hi lovelies,

A week till Christmas!! I hope everyone's got their minds set on a Christmas design, if not, that's okay too, I still got a few to show you ; ) 

For this year's Christmas tree design, I kind of redid the design I've done for the last two years (2012 and 2013), but with a twist. I used the christmas tree nail charm from Born Pretty Store, which made things so much easier; and I was really happy to finally try something different for a design. Plus, the star on top of the tree is super duper cute XD

I used Glam Polish I Found a Dream, a green holographic polish, as the base; place some gold tapes on the nails and place the charm on the accent nail.



A pic of the nails with this Cockatoo Christmas ornament I got, so adorable! I don't actually decorate a tree, so it's just hanging on the wall, lol.


The christmas tree charms are available from Born Pretty Store with 10% off discount using this coupon, BAHQ10.

Sparkly Christmas Decals

Hi lovelies,

A holiday won't be complete without some red nails, and luckily, I got the sexiest red holographic polish just before the holidays, that is Enchanted Polish September; and to top it off, I added some beautiful Christmas nail art decals from Born Pretty Store.

The decals would stand out more over a dark and plain base, but I really prefer this, bling bling XD

Christmas Nails Wraps

Hi lovelies,

It's that time of the year again! I'm gonna do a few post on Christmas nail designs here, please don't hesitate to post your Christmas nail ideas in the comments ; ) I would love to see everyone's nails!

I'll start with a simple one, nail wraps. They are always neat and reliable. The ones I'm showing you today are glow in dark nail art wraps from Born Pretty Store


The white region of the wraps was actually transparent, so I used a white base before I applied them. You simply just peel a wrap that fits, place it over your nail, and tap around to secure the corners.

Powder Perfect Mysterium Magnum Collection

Hi lovelies,

How's everyone been? I've just came back from Perth, it was the most amazing trip! I got so close to all those wildlives XD The unexpected surprise of sunbathing seal was totally the highlight of the trip, head over to my IG if you would like to see the pics.

I obviously couldn't wait to play with my nails, been working on this post since I got back this morning : P The Mysterium Magnum Collection by Powder Perfect is inspired by mysterious creatures and tales. And now let's see the swatches!

Leviathan is navy holographic polish flecked with small holo and iridescent glitters, inspired by the gigantic sea monster who inhabits the deepest abysses of the ocean, and the polish represents the world in which this beast resides. The swatches were two coats with topcoat, and I added some stamping for the shade, the image is from Messy Mansion plate MM05


The depth of this polish is amazing, so squishy!!




Lycanthrope is a green/purple duochrome holographic polish, the shifting color of the shimmer totally resembles the shape shifting of the werewolf, beautifully! The polish was quite pigmented, I used two coats for these.




It was impossible to capture the green color with flash, I only manage to get it in shaded lighting ; )


Melusina has different colours and sizes of glitters in a deep aqua base. Shown is two coats with topcoat. The story on the press was really intriging, so I thought I would include it here.

"Melusina was a water nymph; half woman, half fish, but able to take human form. She met a
mortal man and made him promise to let her bath in private as a condition of their marriage. He
broke his promise and saw that she was a mermaid as she bathed. Once she discovered his
treachery she fled and was never seen in human form again. She lives on in the whispers over the
water, protecting her descendants. "




Griffon is a rich burgundy holographic polish with bright green sparks and glass flecks, perfect for the regal Griffon. Again two coats with topcoat.




Faerie is a delicate pink microglitter polish, dries slightly textured, which can be smoothed out with a nice good topcoat. It photoed it both with and without topcoat, it looks so amazing both ways!

 



 Lorelei is a dreamy purple polish lit from within with sparkling flakes in fuchsia and teal. This one's definitely my favorite, subtle sparkles and gorgeous color! I used three thin coats for the swatches.




The inspired nail art is pink metallic mermaid stamping over gradients.


The collection will be available from Powder Perfect on 15th Dec for $10-12 each depending on the shade. Make sure you follow their social media for all the information and more upcoming news.

Bliss Polish swatches and review

Hi lovelies,

Today I have swatches of an exciting new brand to show you, it's new to me, hehe. Bliss Polish is based in Southern California, all polishes are custom blended in a 5-FREE nail polish base. Micas, pigments, colorants and glitters are added to each creation. Thanks Jacinta (owner of Powder Perfect) for sending me these gorgeous polishes!

Coral Crush is a shimmer with holo glitter flecks, the holo shows best when gloss. It applies matte but will appear glossy when a top coat is applied. Shown in the first two pics are three coats of Coral Crush on its own. 



This is with topcoat, so squishy!


Destiny is a soft pink polish with whitish silver flakes that dries to a matte finish. This is three thin coats on its own.



And this is with a topcoat, I'm so in love with this shade, Matte and Gloss! It's so different from all the other polishes in my stash.


Plum Crazy is the last matte shade we have today, it has purple shimmer with holo glitter flecks in a rich purple base.



With topcoat. The topcoat brings out all the sparkly goodness of this shade. Stunning!


Last but not least we have a squishy mint crelly, Sweet Senti-mint. It has gold shimmer and various gold holo glitters in a light green base. Shown is three coats with topcoat.




Aussie ladies can purchase Bliss Polish from their Australian stockist Powder Perfect. The price for each polish is $9.15 - $10.05 depending on their ingredients

Glam Polish Eternity Dragon swatches and nail art

Good evening lovelies,

I bet you've been waiting for this. I got the swatches of the most beautiful polish in the world for you today! 

This is Eternity Dragon by Glam Polish from their Fantasia Flakies Series, a multichrome flakie top coat shifting from copper-green-cyan-blue. Seriously, the color shifting is crazy!! Again I swatched it three coats on its own first then over a color.



This was taken in shade, the pic doesn't do the polish any justice at all, the colors were more vivid off camera.


Look at that! Those are the colors you see when you tilt your nails, I couldn't stop staring at them.


The undie I used was China Glaze Budding Romance, then applied a thin coat of Eternity Dragon.




And of course, I had to do some dragon scale stamping for this XD the plate I used was Messy Mansion MM21.


The Fantasia Flakie Collection has just been released, all the shades are now available from www.glampolish.com.au with shipping to Australia & USA shipping rates to USA are $7.95 for the first polish and an extra $1.00 for each additional polish.
