Whats up nails Aurora pigment

A few days ago I got a long awaited nail mail containing the new Aurora pigment from Whats up nails. Usually it takes about a week for my parcel to arrive when I order from them, but this time it took three weeks for it to arrive. The post must have messed up this time šŸ˜¦
Anyway, you all probably know by now that I love Whats up nails’ powders and this one is no exception. I actually think this one is my favorite so far!

I applied the powder over white nail polish (Alpine snow from OPI), and the result is just amazing!

I want to try this pigment over so many more colors, next time I think I’ll try it over light pink or blue… or purple.

When I ordered this pigment I already had a design in mind, so I’ve been waiting some time to finally be able to make it! I knew I just had to pair it with unicorns, though I didn’t want to cover up the pigment too much, so I decided on a unicorn on just one nail.

Neon aztec

When I was in London in the beginning of this month I picked up Models Own new Aquaproof collection. The collection consists of five bright neon shades and I’ve used four of them for this design.

I made this design for the last prompt of this month’sĀ @clairestelle8challengeĀ on Instagram, with the theme aztec/tribal print. I didn’t have a design planned wen I sat down to paint them. Sometimes unplanned manis turn out great, and sometimes they don’t…Ā I’m really happy this design turned out to be one of the good ones. They’re just so bright and fun!

For this design I usedĀ Impassable yellow,Ā Orange seal,Ā Impervious pinkĀ andĀ Airtight turquoise from Models Own. The stamping plate isĀ Bundle Monster + ChitChat Nails BM-XL202 and the stamping polish isĀ Midnight mischief fromĀ Painted Polish. To fill in the pattern I used Dance 24 detail brush from Whats up nails.

Of course I had to add a matte top coat, though I can’t decide which version I like the most. The glossy one is so bright, but the matte one shows the pattern so well. What version do you like the most?

Born Pretty Store Chameleon chrome pigment powder

By now you all probably know that I love my chrome powders, so when I saw that Born Pretty store also has oneĀ I had to give it a try.Ā It is much cheaper than most chrome powders, the one I tried is $4.29 for 0,5g where’s powders from most other brands are around $20 for 1g.Ā Since this powder is so much cheaper I was expecting the application to be a bit more difficult compared to the more expensive ones, but that was not the case. This one was actually really easy to apply, and it looks amazing!

I used the powder with regular nail polish, which works great. Just remember that you need to use a water based top coat not to ruin the chrome finish. I’m so happy that you can get this beautiful chrome finish without using gel polish!

This powder was sent to me from Born Pretty Store to review (you can find it here), the shade I got is called GRB20. After trying the powder I had to order a few more shades!

Chameleon flakes from BeautyBigBang

Hi guys, today I have some flakes from BeautyBigBang to show you!
A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to try some of their products and I said yes. The Chameleon flakes caught my eye, so I chose to try three of their colors.

The Chameleon flakes are on sale right now forĀ $2.99 (original price $5.99) and you can find them here. Each box contains 0,2 g, and they’re available in twelve different shades.

As you see in the picture above each box of flakes comes with a double sided eye shadow applicator. To apply the flakes you can either use the applicator they come with, your finger, a fan brush or another type of brush.

To get the flakes to really pop and get the most colorful result I’ve applied them over two coats of black nail polish, and they’re topped with a quick dry glossy top coat.

First out are these gorgeous blue to purple shifting flakes calledĀ J2443-2A. In some lights they even shift a little bit to green, which you can see on my ring finger in the first picture.

Next up are these purple to green shifting flakes calledĀ J2443-3A. Out of the three flakes I got, I think these are my favorites!

And the last flakes I got are these orange to green shifting flakes calledĀ J2443-4A. These flakes look like there’re on fire!

I also tried the flakes over white, and even tough the color shifting isn’t as obvious as over black, I’m totally in love with the result! I think my favorite over white has to be J2443-3A.

From left to right I’m wearing: 2A, 3A and 4A.

The flakes were really easy to apply and the result is stunning! They shift beautifully in different lights and you wont be able to take your eyes off your nails with the flakes on them.

The application can be a little messy, also be careful when you open the box otherwise you’ll have flakes everywhere. Some scotch tape is really hand to pick up excess flakes around your nails or on your working space. You can also rinse off the flakes on you skin with some water after you’ve applied your top coat.
