Born Pretty Store - Lace Stickers

Friday, 28 February 2014

Hello!  I've got some funky lacy stickers from Born Pretty Store to show you today.  These are $4.51 for a massive sheet containing a mixture of black and white lace designs.  They come in long strips which you can cut pieces out of and stick straight onto your nail for some instant fanciness.

I decided to stick some white lace over a gradient.  These were really simpple to apply.  I cut pieces slightly longer than my nail and then filed off the edges.  I added top coat and I was suprised how well these lasted.  I'm not normally a fan of stickers as they can sometimes peel easily and look scruffy, but these stay put pretty damn well.

These stickers are really easy to apply and great for some instant fancy nail art.  They can be a bit tricky to remove, so I'd recommend using the tin foil removal method to get them off to save spending ages scrubbing at your nails.

Pink zebra nail art

Thursday, 27 February 2014

Hello!  I've got something a bite WILD for you today.  I do love a bit of zebra!

It's really easy to create this kind of pattern, and I used the Barry M Nail Art pen in black to add my stripes over a pink gradient.  I decided to just go half way over on my nails with the zebra print, so you could still see the gradient on the other side.

This is a really gorgeous, unusual shade of pink, it's kind of got a colder, violet undertone to it.  Andyway, it's just lovely, a nice subtle pink.  This is a thick creme formula, so is opaque in two coats. Lovely.

I decided to go for a red and black manicure and add a couple of the (admittably, pretty creepy looking) masks onto my nails.  I reckon these would be a cool look for halloween.

I can't stress enough how flipping amazing the water decals from Born Pretty Store are, and these are no exception.  Really easy to use and they dry flat onto the nail.

Hello!  I've got a lovely colour to show you today.  This is Flashing Lilac from L'Oreal.

I hadn't actually tried any L'Oreal polishes before this as I hadn't really noticed any colours that were different or stood out to me but this pretty caught my eye the other day and I thought I'd give it a go.

This is three coats of Flashing Lilac.  It's quite difficult to capture the colour, it is a lovely pink/purpley shade.
