Review: Floral Water Decals

I hope everyone's having a fantastic festive season!

Born Pretty Store has been kind enough to send through another batch of their wonderful water decals for me to try out and of course, I said yes straight away since the last batch was so superb!

Click here for my tutorial of their last batch of water decals. I used the same method and made sure that I whacked on two layers of top coat this time for extra security.

I'm just going to jump straight into the photos since I have nothing but awesome things to say about these water decals. You should definitely check them out in the link below (and stock up because they're incredibly affordable). LINK :)

Although I have to say that the colours on the website are not accurate at all. They actually have this muted, warmer vintage look, which is much nicer in my opinion. Here are the photos!






I love these so much! They're so incredibly detailed and looks very delicate. I hope you guys like them too. Definitely check them out at Born Pretty Store via this link.

Happy holidays!

Found my marbles

Hi again!

After yet another long hiatus, I am back with some water marbling.

Used OPI Happy Anniversary for the base because it is the most versatile base polish.
Then I layered that with drops of Nubar Pasadena Purple to create this wonderful psychedelic effect. Loving the swirls but hating the yellow lighting.


Happy painting, girls!

First taste of Butter London

Hello all! I am back! No more excuses now that my degree has finished. So be sure to check back for regular updates. Promise that I won't let you guys down! Heap more tutorials and nail art for you guys to indulge in :)

Now onto the actual content. Recently I bought my first few bottles of Butter London. I actually bought 7 bottles except one of them broke in transit so I was left with 6 and completely devastated. I wish companies would take better care when packaging them.
From left to right: Teddy Girl (pink), Crumpet (sand), Pimms (yellow), Squatter (green), Keks (blue), Giddy Kipper (purple)

Be sure to keep an eye out for them in my future posts. I can't wait to try them all out!

I have Squatter on my nails right now. I absolutely adore the colour. I love it to the point that I don't want to take them off. The photo makes it look a little fluorescent but it is actually much more muted in real life. It feels so fresh, perfect for Sydney's spring weather now that it has stopped thunderstorming.


I'm not quite sure how Butter London comes up with their names. But I like the wittiness. Hope you've enjoyed this colour too.

Until next time! ♥

Hibernation

I am apologising (yet again) for this long hiatus. I do have to confess that the reason is actually because I haven't been painting my nails. I feel so ashamed to not have been taking care of my finger tips, even neglecting to moisturise my cuticles.

This is just a quick update to thank you guys for still visiting me and keeping this little blog alive in spirit.

I painted my nails for my birthday dinner! Went a little over board because I missed doing my nails.

The base is Orly's Pure Porcelain. That's a sticker on my ring finger. I'm a cheater.


Hopefully I'll see you guys soon. Happy painting!

Mermaid nails: glitter review

I love glitters. And so does everyone else. I've been wearing this manicure for a week now and I've got to say, its so beautifully mesmerizing!

Thank you Born Pretty Store for sending my these awesome babies. Click here or on the photo to get yourself straight to the glitter pots. You absolutely need to give them a go!


I've done a mermaid scale inspired nail art with the blue to green tones, and just a tiny bit of gold at the tips for that extra shine. The photos honestly don't do them justice. I used Zoya Ivanka as base so even if they do fall off, I can still have glittery nails!

I encourage you to definitely give these a go because they're easy-peasy. Just use a bit of blu-tack on the end of a skewer to pick the glitter up one by one. Although it is an extremely laborious process, it is worth every second. I don't have any regrets.
