Christmas Friends full wrap water decals from Charlies Nail Art

PRESS SAMPLE
Hands up who is getting excited about Christmas - yay!  There's a distinct chill in the air, I wonder if we'll have a white Christmas in the UK?  Here's my first Christmas mani of the year using Christmas Friends Nail Art Wraps from Charlies Nail Art.  The wraps depict festive reindeer, a jolly snowman and playful penguins.  The wraps are essentially water decals.  I applied the wraps over a white base, it's not imperative to have a base colour, but I like to have them in case part of the wrap doesn't completely cover your nail.  You need to have some patience with the full wrap water decals, you need to allow them to dry and attach to your nail, so take time to apply them.  If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go, simply soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails, trim and seal with top coat - done!

Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Periwinkles

With the nights drawing in and it’s dark on the way home from work, I need something to remind me of the daylight I’m missing and blue sky.  So I’ve gone for Periwinkles from the Avon Mark Gel Shine nail enamel range to brighten up my day.   A stunning sky blue / baby blue, to beat the blues!
 I applied 2 coats for an amazing coverage.  My photos are without top coat to show you how glossy the gel shine is, however, I did apply top coat afterwards for durability.  As with all Mark Gel Shine nail enamels, Periwinkles is well pigmented and a great formulation.
 
I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).

Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Crackling Cobalt & Majestic Mauve

I've got another two new shades from the Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ range to show you and they are flippin' gorgeous - Crackling Cobalt & Majestic Mauve.
OMG - aren't they just the best shades!
 So let me obsess a little about Crackling Cobalt, a navy shimmer which reminds me of the twinkly stars in the midnight sky. Pics below with camera flash.

And now onto Majestic Mauve, a sumptuous plum shimmer which dazzles like a purple tourmaline gemstone.  Pics below with camera flash.

The formulation is a good consistency, you could almost get away with one coat if you were in a rush, I'd always recommend two coats for full impact and seal with Avon Mark Gel Shine top coat for durability.  Superbly pigmented and a real treat for the eyes.

Firework Frenzy Nail Art Water Decal Wraps from Sparkly Nails

PRESS SAMPLE
Remember, remember the fifth of November, 
Gunpowder treason and plot
We see no reason 
Why gunpowder treason 
Should ever be forgot! 
On the very night that the Gunpowder Plot was foiled, on November 5th, 1605 in London, bonfires were set alight to celebrate the safety of the King. Since then, November 5th has become known as Bonfire Night. The event is commemorated every year with fireworks and burning effigies of Guy Fawkes on a bonfire.
My firework mani is using Firework Frenzy full wrap water decals from Sparkly Nails.  There are 10 decals in the pack, in different designs, you don't have to apply them to all of your nails you could have an accent nail decorated.
I applied the wraps over a black base, it's not imperative to have a base colour, but I like to have them painted in case part of the wrap doesn't completely cover your nail.  You need to have some patience with the full wrap water decals, you need to allow them to dry and attach to your nail, so take time to apply them.  Any excess decal which has attached to your skin can be removed with nail polish remover and a brush.
If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go, simply soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails and seal with top coat - done!
If you love water decals as much as me, why not join the Facebook group I've just set up called Wonderful Water Decals.

The Firework Frenzy full wrap water decals are currently £0.99.   Available at Sparkly Nails who have an amazing range of nail art items; they offer a loyalty and an affiliate scheme, go sign up, I have, you may as well save as you spend!

Avon Color Trend - 3 New Shades - The Metals

The Color Trend nail enamel range is Avon's most affordable collection and includes bright trendy colours with THREE new tantalizing metallic shades in Brochure 17.

The new metallic shades are perfect for the party season, and at only £2 each you can treat yourself to all three without feeling guilty!
First up - Metal Blue - gorgeous royal blue with white & and a hint of pink shimmer
 
Next - Metal Love - a duo chrome metallic shifting from bronze to pink
 
Finally - Heavy Metal - a pretty amethyst shimmer
I LOVE the three new metallic shades which are bang on trend and extremely eye-catching.
They were a doddle to apply, brilliant formulation and for the price, they are super dooper!
