Pegasus & Rainbows

 Hi guys ! Hope you all had a great week. Mine has been super busy.. 

Today I'm sharing another fun mani with you . A while back I was send the most awesome 3D nail Jewels from a local company here called NailCandi that stocks the most gorgeous and unique nail jewels. One of the sets I was send was this Pegasus nail jewels, and I decided to pair them with some rainbows since they look so close to a unicorn .. And let's be honest who doesn't love rainbows and unicorns ?

So onto the actual nail jewel. Yes.. This isn't the most practical everyday nail art idea.. But for something fun and unique.. YES ! They are perfect statement pieces. I placed mine securely on the nail with Seche Vite, but you can use nail glue too. (For a more secure hold.. Although with Seche Vite topcoat.. The Pegasus stayed in place until I took it off.

Removal : I used a cotton bud dipped in polish remover and gently started on the corners of the Pegasus until the polish there dissolved and then cleaned up the remaining bits of the nail jewel. This way you can use these cool nail jewels again .

So onto the mani -


Polishes I used :
Tip Top Twilight (Pastel Blue )
Tip Top Cherries in The Snow (Red )
Tip Top Orange You Lovely ( Orange )
Tip Top Sun Kissed (Yellow )
Tip Top As The Beat Grows On (Green )
Tip Top Nail Addict Wild Thing (Blue )
Tip Top Surfer Girl 
China Glaze Liquid Crystal (Glitter Nails )
China Glaze Fairy Dust over the Rainbow and Pegasus nails.

Remember to check out their awesome online store HERE .. They sell awesome midi rings and other accessories. 

Do you like nail jewels ? Any fun plans for the weekend ??

China Glaze : Deviantly Daring

 Hi guys . Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty great with the rainy weather we had on Saturday and Sunday. I think the rain storms are my favourite part of spring/summer. 

Today I'm sharing another China Glaze polish with you. China Glaze Deviantly Daring is a gorgeous teal / blue / green duochrome metallic polish. The polish is also SUPER opaque... I could have gotten away with just one coat but decided on two as I always do when doing my nails. This polish is from a little older collection... But man oh man it's gorgeous and I'm not usually the biggest fan of duochrome polishes. 

So onto the pics ... 

How was YOUR weekend ? Do you like duochrome polishes ??

Happy Monday !

Revlon Powder Blush - Racy Rose'

Hi guys ! Hope you all had a great week. It's finally FRIDAY ... Anyone have exciting plans for the weekend ??

Today I am sharing my thoughts on a new Revlon blush I had for a while. The colour I got was Racy Rose... Usually I do tend to gravitate towards the barbie girly pinks.. But this colour is such a fun alternative for winter, and I really think this gives my face such a warmth that a pink wouldn't give me in winter. Racy Rose is a warm toned coral with just a hint of pink. This is an ultra soft powder that gives such a natural flush to your cheeks.. But the colour is build able if you like a more intense finish. The colour lasts a good 6/7 hours on me before starting to fade on me. 

I usually don't like the brushes that comes with eyeshadow/blushes .. But this brush works perfectly . It has soft bristles and I haven't had any bristles fall out yet.  And the blush comes with a nifty little mirror too .. So perfect for touch ups on the go. 



The Blush retails for R185 at Revlon counters and comes in fun named shades. 

How was YOUR week ? Do you prefer coral / peachy or pink blushes ??

Grey & Pink Glitter Mani

Hi guys ! Hope your having a great week so far. Mine has been pretty busy so far.

Today I'm sharing a fun mani I had on last week.. I shared it on Instagram already but sharing it here too now. 

I love pink and grey together ( In clothes combos and on my nails .. ) For this mani I used China Glaze Material Girl and Essence Grey-T to be Here. 

This is another attempt where I tried to let China Glaze Material Girl work for me.. Somehow this polish just doesn't like me.. It chips super quickly.. But its sooo gorgeous. 

So onto the photos -



Whats your favourite colour combo to wear on your nails ???
