Holo water marble

Hi everyone!

I have another water marble for you today. I decided to try doing a water marble with holographic polishes! I’ve seen this done a few times before with the result being swirls of holo goodness… unfortunately mine only half worked. As a water marble it’s fine but sadly you can’t see much holo-ness. holo-water-marble-born-pretty-store-holographic-12-10-and-9 (more…)

Autumny Water Marble

Hi everyone!

In case you’re wondering why I would do an autumny mani when here in South Africa it’s summer, well, I didn’t plan it that way! I just picked out some colours I thought would go well together and only once I was finished did I realise they were a pretty autumny combination 🙂 So for those of you in the Northern hemisphere – enjoy this as an end-of-autumn water marble!water-marble-lava-baker-street-beach-babe-1 (more…)

Tribal Textures swatches – part 3 (and final!)

Hi ladies!

It’s the final set of Tribal Texture swatches! All these polishes are available from the Born Pretty Store and were bought by me.

As I mentioned in the previous posts, part one and part two, I had some formula issues with some of these polishes. Well, the issues were the WORST with the ones I’m showing today. However, because they were textured polishes, I found I could handle it without getting too frustrated. They were really thick – the worst was number 12. There was a little polish around the lid, so I suspect it wasn’t sealed quite properly during transit and it was completely unusable. The good news is, after just a few drops of thinner, everything was fine and it applied well. So don’t let the formula put you off if you like the colours – nothing a little thinner can’t solve!

I’ll start off with number 10 – a brown texture. tribal texture 10 born pretty store (more…)

Milky Way Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have some fun nails for you that I have dubbed my Milky Way nails. I did nail art that was similar to this a few times when I first started getting into nail art, and it was a big hit with Mr Boyfriend – he was actually the one who mentioned it looked like the Milky Way! I’ve made a few changes to those original ones but I figured it was finally time for my Milky Way nails to get onto my blog 🙂milky way nails galaxy nails sally hansen loves me not nails inc electric lane holographic top coat tip top rocky road star studs kkcenterhk born pretty store (more…)
