Atlanta Graffiti Collection | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

It was Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer’s 5th birthday a few days ago, on the 18th of May. As part of the celebrations, they’re releasing a new collection inspired by graffiti in and around Atlanta! In addition, there is going to be a big sale on items in the shop over the weekend – join the BEGLove Facebook group for a bit more information on that. For now, I have swatches of the new collection to share with you. There are some beauties, including a really fun glitterbomb!

Review: Born Pretty Store Aurora Nail Pigment

Hi everyone!

Today I have a review and lots of pictures to share with you of an aurora nail powder from Born Pretty Store. I’ve tried a few powder products by now, in holo, chrome, and multichrome, and it’s always fun to see the transformation as you apply these to the nail! They also have plenty of nail art applications – remember my over-the-top metal-dipped fingers? Today’s powder has a gorgeous shift and interesting character over both dark and light bases.

Dragon Scale Diamond Glitter

Hi everyone!

Have you realised by now that I like dragons? Your first hint was over 3 years ago when I posted freehand dragon nail art for the first time. After that, it was a while before I returned to my favourite mythical creature, but I eventually got back to it with some Game of Thrones inspired dragons. Since then, I’ve also done not one, but two dragon eye looks, and another freehand dragon.

Today, I’ve done some dragon scale-esque glitter placement.

Hi everyone!

I have a bling-filled review for you today of a rhinetone and stud mix from Born Pretty Store. A combination of shell-shaped studs and iridescent microbeads and gems made me decide on an extravagant mermaid-inspired look.

Moonflower Polish Spring Collection Swatches

The polish in this post was provided by the maker for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

Remember the stamping I showed you last week using the Moonflower Polish Spring collection? Well, the 4 polishes from this collection can also be worn as regular polish and they are all gorgeous on their own! In fact, wearing these as regular polish allows you to see a lot more of the lovely shift these have. The set is described as iridescent duochromy holos in a jelly base. Don’t let the ‘jelly base’ part scare you – keep in mind these can even stamp effectively, so they are nice and opaque. Each polish also has an iridescent flakie that shifts in the same coordinating colour. These will also look amazing if used together in nail art! I can see a stained glass type look being done with them.

I’ll start off with my favourite from the set, Moonflower Polish Tortuga.
