Nella Milano Nail Lacquer - Mulberry Wood

PRESS SAMPLE
Season's Greetings to you all!  Here's the second of the trio of lacquers from Nella Milano, aptly named Mulberry Wood, a sumptuous deep dusky mauve.  One of my favourite colours, not too red, not too purple, a warm berry shade.  The lacquer is in a good sized 12ml bottle, nice flat brush, excellent formulation.  I applied two coats and top coat and is, in my opinion, very chip resistant.  Lovely polish, very easy to apply, no bleeding and set place on the nail area perfectly.  The lacquers will be available shortly at £8.95 a bottle with discount for Nail Professionals. Check out my video below for a demonstration.

smART Nails Stencils P045 - Splats

PRESS SAMPLE
I saw a lovely mani on the smART Nails Facebook page with a matte base and a contrasting shimmer design on top, which got me thinking, I really want to do something similar.  I'm not really a fan of matte nail polish but the combination with a shimmer polish is amazing.  I had a look through my stash of stencils and decided the 'Splats' would work brilliantly.  Over a black matte base I've added 'Splats' in silver, red, green, gold & pink - splatastic!  I highly recommend smART Nails stencils, they are so quick & easy to use. The re-usable stencils come in a pack of 10 and there are a growing number of different designs to choose from with new designs being introduced weekly.  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.  Apply your contrasting polish and immediate remove the stencil.
Now I'll let you into a special offer!  Place an order throughout December 2014 and smART Nails will send you 3 packs FREE!
I highly recommend these stencils because they are easy, effective, fun, inexpensive and a great way to decorate you nails.   Check out my video demonstration below.

Born Pretty Store Gold & Silver Round Nail Studs

PRESS SAMPLE
What I love a about these Nail Studs from Born Pretty Store is that they are all the same shape in 6 sizes in BOTH gold & silver, they're the basic round stud I use a lot.  There are 400 pieces which come in a handy wheel dispenser with each different size in its own little compartment.   With the festive season upon us I decided to stack the studs in descending order to create a Christmas Tree design on my ring finger nail and then a simple strip on my thumb nail.  These studs will create a multitude of nail art designs. Check out my video below for a demonstration.
