Born Pretty Store Nail Wraps

 Today I want to show you these galaxy nail wraps Born Pretty Store sent me to review, thank you so much!

 Application of these wraps is really easy. Start with a layer of basecoat. I then added one coat of P2 Eternal, a black creme, for an even base (but that's purely optional). Once your nails are dry, just choose the right size of the wrap, remove it from the packaging, place it on the nails, smooth it down with you fingers, fold the excess over the edge of the nail and file the rest of the wrap off. Add a layer of topcoat (don't forget to wrap the tips), and you're finished!

The pattern is really glittery, so removal was quite a mess ;-)

You can get these nail wraps at Born Pretty Store for 2.86$ a sheet.

The nail wraps were offered for reviewing purposes. Again, thank you very much, Born Pretty Store!

52 Week Challenge - Skittles / Red and Pink

A new week, two new challenge themes: Red and pink skittles.

I started with two coats of Kiko 511 (Metallic Mercury Purple). I don't see either mercury or purple in this polish, but a antique pink foil.

Then I used MouYou London Zodiac Collection plate 09 (Libra) and stamped a different design on each nails using aEngland Perceval, a very vivid red shimmer. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finishes this mani.

a England polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.

Sweetheart, It Wasn't Me!

For today's mani I used two polishes of the Essence Good Girl, Bad Girl limited edition.

The base color is It Wasn't Me!, a cool toned purple glitter polish. I used three coats, but I wasn't really happy with the formula. It was somewhat stringy and not too easy to apply. It Wasn't Me! dries quite gritty, the pictures show the polish with topcoat.

For the stamping I used Hello, Sweetheart and Lily Anna plate 05. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.

Cygnus Loop (H)

It's time for another one of the gorgeous ILNP Multichromes: the holo version of Cygnus Loop.

"The rainbow sparkle in the new Cygnus Loop (H) accents the space-aged nail polish perfectly! Your beautiful nails will look as if they're really from another galaxy!

Depending on the light and angle of your lovely fingertips, Cygnus Loop (H) will shuffle through a bright purple, to orange, to yellow, and even a little bit of green. On top of that, it will sparkle like it's been hit with diamonds!"

I used three coats for opacity.

For the stamping I used P2 Eternal and MoYou Kaleidoscope Collection plate 06. Then I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. Again, I was impressed with the longevity of this polish, I wore this mani for a whole week without any chipping and only minor tipwear!

ILoveNailpolish are available on Etsy and at their own shop.

Give Me Sparkle

Give Me Sparkle is the name of today's polish, and it's by the german drugstore brand Manhattan.

Give Me Sparkle is a black textured polish with silver sparkles. I used three coats for the pictures. No topcoat, to keep the textured finish.
