Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-117

Born Pretty Store have their own range of nail art stamping plates, they have both small round plates and large rectangle plates.  Here I'm sharing with you a couple of manis from Stamping Plate BP-117, a round plate with 4 designs including clovers (great for St Patrick's Day), flower heads, paisley & swirly patterns.  The plate is suitable for long nails and you can create both delicate and bold designs.  To the pics!!!!
 This mani is using the clover design, which will be great for St Patrick's Day.
 For above and below I used a fluorescent yellow base nail polish which lights up under a UV lamp and looks very effective and the stamped pattern really pops.

Chameleon Duo Chrome Nail Pigment from Nicole Diary

I have another pot of pigment powder from Nicole Diary to share with you.  This pigment is a duo chrome mirror effect, the shade is number 583 and is a blue/mauve colour shift.  Available at Amazon & Aliexpress.
First I applied a peel off base coat for easy removal of the gel polish.  I then painted and cured a clear gel base coat, painted regular black nail polish, applied and cured a no wipe gel top coat and then the fun began.  The 1g pot of duo chrome mirror pigment comes with a sponge applicator, I used a very small amount using the sponge applicator and rubbed onto my nails.  The effect took seconds to appear, truly amazing and mesmerising.  I applied another layer of gel top coat to seal in the duo chrome pigment.  My camera flash has obliterated the duo chrome colour shift effect but if you take a look at my last photo taken without a camera flash you can see the shift.
The pigment can be used over any colour, I used a black base, check out my video demonstration further down.
The holographic pigment from Nicole Diary at Amazon and available singularly at Aliexpress.
To the pics.
 Below - without camera flash, this shows the duo chrome effect better

Avon Gel Shine Nail Polish - Barely There

Today's neutral tone nails are Avon's 'Barely There' from their Gel Shine range. A nude shade nail polish can range in tone from pinks to browns and as simple as a nude polish sounds, it can look completely different depending on your skin tone.   Avon's Barely There is a soft milky latte colour and has a plump formulation which gives the appearance of gel nails.  I applied two coats without top coat for photo purposes to show you the coverage and how glossy it is, however, I later applied top coat for durability.  Excellent formulation, 10ml bottle, nice slim cap and a decent brush.
I'm so impressed with my Avon nail polishes that I became an Avon Rep at the beginning of the year, which means.....lots more nail polish!!
