Lacquer Lust - Sapphire

Hey guys,

Today I have the Lacquer Lust birthstone for September to show you, I'm not sure if my November birthstone will arrive in time for November but I guess we'll find out.

I love the colour of this sapphire holo.
I loved how it's blackened. This was two coats.

Born Pretty Store - Water decals

Hey guys,
So tonight I have my next product review from the Born Pretty Store

I have some Water decal nail "stickers" to show you guys. I'd never used water decals before so these were all new for me. 

So basically the way water decals work is that you immerse them in water, then they slide off the paper backing and you then stick them down on your nail and seal with a top coat.

It took me a few nails to really get the hang of it, so as a result my right hand actually turned out a bit better I think. I also wanted to use the biggest decals cause they had the best designs on them.

For my first time using water decals. I'm pretty happy I will definitely be trying more water decals in the future!

Born Pretty Store - Dragon Stamping Plate

Hey guys,

So tonight I have another product review from the Born Pretty Store. I was fairly stoked when they asked me to do another round of reviews for them. It gives me a really good opportunity to try some new stuff out.

This time around I thought I would go for some different types of products, so I picked up two stamping plates, some water decals, and some appliques.

First up we have this dragon stamping plate.

You guys all know I am the first person to admit that I SUCK at stamping. One day I really want to spend some time and really work on my skills. But I think patience is key in stamping and I never seem to have that.

I've never used a plate like this with one large design on it, but I love dragons so it seemed like a good one to invest in.

I used Formula X - Surreal over black.

Honestly I am quite impressed with how this turned out. I would definitely say that any imperfections are due to my own lack of stamping skills than the plate.

This is the Rollin in Cashmere set from OPI.

ELF - Chic Confetti

Hey guys,

So this puppy has been sitting in my drafts for way too long. This was a polish given to me by my best friend that she had recieved in a subscription box.

To be completely honest I'm not a fan. There isn't anything wrong with the formula or glitter pay off here, it is just the actual glitter topper itself. It reminds me of a child's birthday party. I don't know if "Chic" belongs in the name here. I just don't know where this one falls flat yet there are other rainbow glitters I love. Does this one look cheap? Maybe.

This was one coat over black.

Beautifully Disney - Pop Of Minnie Set

Hey guys,

I'm really sorry for going MIA but I've had some family stuff going on behind the scenes here and life has been just a little bit crazy so I can't promise much this month. I'll try to keep you posted. However if I suddenly vanish into the ether a bit please forgive me as there is just a lot of stuff going on.

Today I have another of the discontinued Beautifully Disney mini sets for you. I also got this one while I was in Disney World with my cousin. This wasn't my favourite of the ones I bought but if greens and oranges are your thing this may be for you.
