Bundle Monster Rose Gold Crystal Nail Wraps Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Recently Bundle Monster sent me a package with a few nail art products in it including these Rose Gold Wraps.  I've never used a product like these before.  I suppose it's closest description would be as a nail sticker but the backbone of it is clear and the design is a super metallic rose gold crystal pattern.  The metallic printing is slightly textured which is something I wouldn't be able to create on my own.  A package comes with 20 wraps of various sizes.  These must be cut to size before use since they don't dissolve in acetone like most water decals do.  Then you just stick them on over dry polish and finish with top coat.  There is also a note that you must keep them sealed because air with dry out the strip and affect the adhesive.

Whats Up Nails Stamping Plate Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It's the weekend and finally one that isn't from the depths of winter so I'm thrilled!  To start my weekend, I'm writing a blog post with so many manis in it.  I recently received the newest stamping plates from Whats Up Nails and I absolutely fell in love with them so I hope you like them too.  Honestly, Whats Up makes some of my favourite stamping plates these days.  They don't have a ton of images but the ones they have are unique and beautiful AND the plates aren't you can buy more, haha!  Here I've used four of them: Nature's Beauty Garden (full of florals and other foliage patterns), Texture Me Nature (with some incredibly cool and unique nature patterns), Sin City Life (with lots of Vegas themed images and even a bit of New York) and Fashion Prints (with images that would make some beautiful textiles).  And it just so happens that the Nail Crazies Unite prompt this week is neon floral so I did my first Nature's Beauty Garden mani with that theme in mind.

Cici & Sisi Fruit and Flower Acrylic Stamping Plates

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a few of the newer Cici & Sisi acrylic stamping plates to share.  I believe these acrylic plates came out a few years ago as an alternative to the standard stainless steel plates.  Recently they've released 3 circle fruit-themed stamping plates.  Each plate has a different fruit of choice so if you like peaches, kiwis or strawberries (and who doesn't), you might like these plates.  The last two plates are what I really love from Cici & Sisi's plates - layered images!  There's two nature themed plates with florals, leaves, birds and butterflies.  Keep reading to check them out.

Whats Up Nails Black Chrome Powder and Stencil Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I recently received the Black Chrome Powder from Whats Up Nails and I clearly thought it was a lot of fun because I ended up using it in a bunch of manis in conjunction with some of their stencils.  This powder is different than some of the other powders because it's less opaque so it doesn't change the color of the base so much as it gives it a chrome/pewter hue to it.  Follow the jump to see all the stencils I used it with and read more about the powder itself.

KBShimmer Launch Party Swatches and Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Okay I'm absolutely swooning over the most recent KBShimmer collection that I received from Color4Nails to swatch!  I can't say enough but I'm going to try.  Actually, I'm going to show you about a million photos because that's how many it took to capture just part of the beauty of the Launch Party magnetic multichrome polishes.  I had over 600 photos of this 9 piece collection.  I know I take a lot of photos when I'm swatching but this was the most and yet I still feel like I didn't do it justice.  I love magnetic polishes (they often feel like little galaxies on my nails) PLUS these have multichrome shifts AND there's a holographic topper which really does turn them into little galaxies.  Keep reading to see plenty of pics (to get a better idea of the multichrome nature) and see photos of that holo topper in direct light...over every single one of the others!

Moonflower Polish Sweet Dreams - Fantasmic Flakies Group Custom

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Lately it seems that many Facebook groups are doing group custom polishes which is lucky for us.  These customs are often incredibly gorgeous.  That's the case for the polish I'm posting about today - the Fantasmic Flakies polish of the month, Sweet Dreams from Moonflower Polish.  Moonflower Polish is known for making awesome stamping polishes but this is NOT a stamping polish.  But it does prove that she makes beautiful regular polish as well.  You are going to have to join the Facebook group (which is the only way to get your paws on it) because you're going to want this polish!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Things That Are Round

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!  Yesterday was the day for 26 Great Nail Art Idea's "Things That Are Round" prompt but I was too late getting my DD post done to blog twice so here we have it today.  Turns out there's so many things that are round but I went with the biggest...planets!  I have a set of planet glasses that my sister bought that inspired me to try out a bit of freehand for these.  Hope you like them!
