Born Pretty Store Clear Jelly Stamper & Stamping Plate BP-L 003

The clear jelly stamper is a revolution in the nail art stamping world.  A clear silicone stamper which allows you to look down the barrel and see exactly what has been stamped and where precisely to place on your nail - why didn't anyone think of this before!  My Clear Jelly Nail Stamper is from Born Pretty Store, comes with a scraper and is available in 3 colours, pink, purple and white (I have white).  I did have to practice using the new clear jelly stamper, unlike my squishy stamper which I simply place on top of the painted image, the clear jelly stamper in my opinion requires a rolling technique and you need to work fast.  Quick roll and place straight onto your nail.  I found that if you pressed too hard the stamp didn't pick up the image, but hey, I'm still practicing.  There's a different type of stamper for every occasion, this will be great for precise placement of a pattern onto your nail.  The clear jelly stamper head is firmer than a squishy stamper and I've discovered from other bloggers do not use acetone to clean as this will breakdown the silicone head, use a lint sticky roller to clean up.  Take a look at my video tutorial below which shows the clear jelly stamper in action, I've also used a large stamping plate from Born Pretty Store which is Stamping Plate BP-L003.
Onto the pics!!!!
Looking down the barrel with the jelly stamper at the bottom.  You can quite clearly see the stamped image and you can stamp precisely on your nail.

Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection

There's a Models Own bottle shop near to me at Brent Cross Shopping Centre.  My Boss very kindly bought me the Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection, a set of 10 beautiful shimmer nail polishes.  Each bottle is usually £4.99 each, however every now and again Models Own have 50% off which makes them £2.50 each and they're 14mls.  The Diamond Luxe set came in a zipped clear bag and all have distinctive gold tone caps and lettering.
To the pics!
Asscher Blue: Bright light blue with turquoise shimmer
 Carat Coral: Bright tomato red with gold shimmer
 Emerald Green: Bright green with gold shimmer
 Heart Red: Scarlet red with gold shimmer
 Marquise Maroon: Ruby red with gold shimmer
 Oval Plum: Magenta pink with pink shimmer
 Pear Purple: Lilac with gold shimmer
 Princess Pink: Baby pink with silver shimmer
 Radiant Pink: Bubblegum Barbie pink with silver shimmer
 Trillion Taupe: Beige with gold shimmer
 Some of them were a little thick and some need 3 coates but overall I'm very pleased with them especially if you can get them at £2.50 per bottle.

smART Nails Stencils 'I Love You' P062

Those 3 little words 'I Love You' probably the most well known 3 worded phrase on the planet.  So just in time for Valentine's day I have another vali mani to show you using I Love You nail stencils from smART Nails.  Using a black & white base I added the I Love You stencils in red on the white nails and white on the black nails.  Simply perfect and gets the message across!  There are 10 stencils per pack, 2 of each design shown below and you can reuse each one a few times.  Stencils are a great way to create nail art.   Simply peel off the stencil from the backing paper.  The stencil is transparent so you can see exactly where to place it on the nail.  Press onto your dry nail and make sure there are no air bubbles.  Seal with top coat once the stencilled polish is completely dry to avoid smearing. To reuse the stencil I put the painted stencil on the plastic packaging the stencils came in, wiped the polish off with nail polish remover and it was good to use again.
I highly recommend these stencils because they are easy, effective, fun, inexpensive and a great way to decorate you nails.

smART Nails stencils are currently $1.99 / £1.25 / €1.58 per pack and they offer international shipping at a flat rate of $5.
FREE shipping on orders $20+
