Essence glow in the dark top coat review

Hi :) I got some new indie polishes the other day so I'll have a very pretty blog post for you soon!

Today I'm going to show you a glow in the dark top coat I got from essence recently. I used one coat of the top coat over an essence polish and nail art I did using the essence nail art pen.

Unfortunately this top coat didn't work for me, you can just about see two of my nails though! I contacted essence about this and their paper print. They said they were aware of the issues and were looking into some reformulations so I'll keep my eye out for those!

W7 dazzle green - review

Morning :D 

Today's mani is W7 white with W7 Dazzle green. Both of these polishes were sent to me for review. The white one was sent a while ago and has already been reviewed and the green glitter was sent very recently and hasn't yet been reviewed.

This is three coats of the green glitter over base coated but not colour polished nails. This polish really does dazzle! it's packed full of tiny square glitter and 4-5 coats would probably give a completely full coverage effect.

I used W7's white as a base to make the glitter stand out more. Two coats of the white gives a full coverage effect so I used two coats of that. I then used one coat of the dazzle green all over my nails. When that was dry, I used another coat from about half way up the nail. I finished with another coat just along the tip of each nail.

Here's a close up so you can see how fab this square glitter polish is! It's pretty hard to photograph because it's super sparkly so there isn't much light in the photo but it's really to show the shape of the glitter not the colour/sparkliness!

This polish applied well, you get lots of glitter per coat, it also dries in around 5-8 minutes. W7 polishes are a fab price and available in loads of places including these websites;

NailStickrs zebra with nails inc Chester Street and Clifford Street

Hi! Finally moved into my new home completely and have internet connection and everything! Between moving and writing I haven't been doing much with my nails but I have lots of manis I've done the last couple of months to show you so I'm back to blogging!

Todays mani is a zebra design done two ways using some vinyls I won from NailStickrs and some nails inc polishes!

These are the vinyls I won.

I started with a base of two coats of Chester Street by nails inc.

I applied the zebra vinyl to my nails one at a time.

I used these cuticle nippers to cut off the excess.

On some nails I cut off all the excess and left the vinyl on the nail to create the stripes and on some of the nails I cut off most of the excess and used nail polish over them to create the stripes.

This is the end result. The purple stripes are done using nails inc Clifford Street and the black ones are the vinyl stripes.

I used clear polish to seal the design and keep the vinyls secure.

Which way do you like best?
