Born Pretty Stamping Plate BP-L020

*Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review but this does not influence the opinions expressed in this blog which are entirely my own.

I’ve been sent some lovely Born Pretty Plates to play with and I have a couple of looks I am going to share with you this week.  First up is this look using BP-L020 a plate filled with lovely lacy designs.  I was quite taken with this plate and I wasn’t sure where to start.  But in the end I plumped for the lace pattern at the bottom left of the image.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used a base of Barry M Gelly Lychee to provide a nude base so that it wouldn’t detract too much from the stamping.  I then stamped over the top, using WnW Black Creme that I keep in my stamping stash, before sealing it all in with my Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.  I did managed to smear my thumb nail and so just dropped in a little bit more stamping because I was running out of time to get this finished.

I love how classy and clean this looks, I think anyone would be able to carry off this design and colour way.  It provides interest without being too in your face.  The quality of the stamp plate is great, the designs are smaller than those you would find on a MoYou XL plate, but bigger than those on the regular plate.  They are a good size for my nails.  I also used my Creative Stamper which I find works really well with the BP plates and delivers a crisp image onto the nail.

Born Pretty have provided me with a 10% off code for all my readers, so if you like the look of this, or any of the next few products I have to shared with you, please feel free to use it. The code is ULG10.  There are lots and lots of lovely things available via the store. Let me know what you get in the comments!

Spotted – Speedy Quick Dry Barry M’s & Essence Trend Editions

If you haven’t been hanging around on social media, you may have missed the new polishes from Barry M.  These are the Speedy Quick Dry range.  Also released is a plumpy top coat. I saw this twice in two different stores, one had been hammered and the other one looked brand new out on the shop floor.  Move quickly as I think these are going to fly off the shelves and some of the blogger swatches are gorgeous!

And the Mountain Calling winter range.

Barry M – Moonlight Ltd Ed Winter 2014

I happened upon the new Barry M glitter toppers released in Boots.  There are two, both of them have red bottle tops.  This is the first one I have tried and is called Moonlight.  The other one is called Starlight.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Moonlight is a glitter topper, with silver stars, silver glitter of varying sizes and small red moon shapes in the clear base coat.  Here you can see one coat over a base of Wet N Wild Haze of Love.  It is packed with glitter and so the dab, splodge and move about the nail for even glitter placement is the best way forward here.

The stars didn’t come out with every dip in the bottle, but you certainly get a good range of red moons in every brushstroke.

These are limited edition and are only available from Boots.  If you like it, best get it quick as last year the editions did sell out quickly.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Spotted – updated stands for Christmas and some new items from Miss Sporty

That is all this time, what have you seen out and about?

Spotted! New Barry Ms

I’m a bit late to the party here, as I saw these a week ago and I know lots of blogs have already featured them.  But if you haven’t already seen, the new Autumn 2014 Barry M colours are out.  And there are quite a few alongside the recent Autumn Gelly shades that came out in September.

First up Glitterati Nail Paint – these are super sparkly nail shades in six colours as seen below…. the bottle tops are deliberately distressed.

Also in this Boots were the two new Xmas shades, Starlight and Moonlight.  These have the red bottle tops. They have tiny stars in them, one mainly silver and one with bits of red in.

Bit of a closer shot here and the matte top coat makes up the full row.

Then there are the new Aquarium shades as well….

IMG_6465

And some additions to the glitter line….

IMG_6466So quite a lot of new Barry M shades out there for your nail pleasure.  These images are from Boots and I know that Superdrug will also have their own limited edition Christmas paints and there is one limited edition one for Tesco from what I understand.  Plenty to get stuck into!  They are up on the Barry M website but I couldn’t see the red toppped bottles so you will have to swing by your local Boots, Superdrug or Tesco.

Anything catch your eye or have you already taken the plunge?  Let me know in the comments
