Static Lacquer Primary Collection

Featured
This collection consists of the primary colors: Red, Yellow, Blue, Black & White.  Each polish will be available individually for $10 each or as sets. All 5 polishes together will be available for $45. 3 polishes Red, Yellow, & Blue will be available for $28. Black & White polishes will be available as a duo for $18.50. All 5 of these polishes watermarble and stamp, which makes them a must have for any polish lover.

First up is Black. One coat with glossy TC shown in artificial and natural lighting.

Formula is phenomenal, not too thick, not too thin. Dry Time is great, removal is easy, application is smooth.

Have you ever wanted a red that is knock your socks off, in your face pretty? Then this needs to be in your polish arsenal. This is 1 coat! The formula, application, dry time, and removal are incredible!
Now I’m not a fan of yellows, but this is more of a banana yellow and definitely pretty. I used 2 coats, only because I messed the first coat up by trying to apply it too thick. I could absolutely be another one coater.
Look at this blue!!!! Wowza! It’s fantastic! I can see myself wearing this one many ways…..stamping, watermarbles, or just plain by itself.
Finally is White. I have a few whites, and this one coat white is my new favorite. The formula is somewhat thicker, but still a fantastic and easy to apply polish. I’ve used it multiple times over the past 3 weeks.
Since I did say they watermarble and stamp, guess what! I actually have some to show.
See what I mean? They watermarble amazingly well, and stamp great!!!! Definitely a collection to pick up for a versatility.
Next is cuticle oil.
I received Cinnamon Bun and Cranberry Woods.
The oils soaked in quickly and lasted. My cuticles and skin have been super dry over the winter, and this oil helped keep my nails and cuticles moisturized. The two I got smell AMAZING!! Cinnamon is always and favorite scent of mine.
There are several scents to choose from along with an unscented version. Available in 5ml dropper bottles (brush pens are coming soon). The dropper bottles will be selling for $3.
Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Argon Oil, Sunflower Oil, & Vitamin E. May also contain fragrance oil. 
Mini magnets!! Sets of 4 mini neodymium magnets that are about 12mm in diameter. Each set is decorated with Static Lacquer polishes including some limited edition colors. These are perfect for use on your refrigerator, dry erase boards, white board calendars & in the office. Each set will sell for $5 a piece 

Well that’s it for now. Thanks for reading and I hope you head to Stacy’s shop to pick up this collection and some of her other new products. You won’t be disappointed.

Check out my IG for more swatches.

Have a nice week. I’ll be back with more reviews soon.

Born Pretty Review

Well once again it’s taken me a very long time to get this review done. Since I’m home now, practicing social distancing, I finally had time to get it done. Let me tell you, these products are pretty fantastic.

First is this beautiful thermal extension gel. https://www.amazon.com/PRETTY-Thermal-Glistening-Extension-Lasting/dp/B0828YWZ3C/ref=sr_1_20?keywords=thermal+gel&m=A8L49FR4CC2FK&qid=1576717356&s=merchant-items&sr=1-20.

Beautiful, am I right?? Very easy to use and cure. I used a nail form to help with an even and smooth application. With the nail form still on my finger, I placed it under the UV lamp to cure it. When I took the nail form off, I used a nail file to shape..

I’m a beginner when it comes to powder, so please bear with me while I try my best.

Second dipping powder

 

Auroras Nail Thermal Sensitive Color Changing Liquid

When I first received this liquid, it was in liquid form.  I got busy and wasn’t able to review the products for over a month.  I finally had time to go back and finish my review and the liquid had dried up to where I couldn’t use it.  The product that was stuck to the lid would change colors when I pushed on it with my finger.  I was pretty bummed that I wasn’t able to use this, as I was really looking forward to playing with it to create some nail art. 

Even with the little problem I had with the gel, I still loved all the products I reviewed.

This is 9D magnetic nail polish is colors Mischief and Fleeting Love. These magnetic are super easy to use and absolutely gorgeous!! They apply smoothly and evenly. I used 3 thin coats for full opacity. When using the magnet, I used it each time I applied a coat of polish, then again after the top coat was applied. Definitely recommend these beauties!

With the quarantine going on with no end in sight, Born Pretty has everything you need for nail art. Check them out and use code COUK31 for 10% off your purchase.

Holographic powder…..😲

I’ll admit, this is the first time I’ve ever used powder, but it was super easy, and beautiful.

I used my finger to rub the powder onto my nail. To get the excess off of my nail, I used a fan brush to get down into the sides and around the nail fold. I applied a gel top coat, and was good to go.

And there you have it! 4 products, all are fantastic and easy to use.

Overall, I give the stamping plates ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I give the holographic powder ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Born Pretty Review

With back to school (and work for me) time has definitely gotten away from me. But I’m back for more. This time I have a stamping plate, fiber gel, gel top coat, and

First up is the Fiber gel. Super easy to use and very sticky. I dipped my pointer finger into the gel, pushed my thumb and pointer finger together a couple times, when it became stringy, I started creating this design. Once I cured the gel, I added a gel top coat and cured that as well.

The next product is No wipe gel top coat, it has a beautiful shine and cures within a minute. I noticed a slight burning sensation while curing, but nothing that would be reason to discontinue use.

Nicole Diary has a stamping plate that has endless possibilities for designs. Nicole Diary-L04 is engraved just right for crisp pickup.

Next is Marble L079 plate by born pretty.

A beautiful plate with many images. This plate makes masking marble designs simple. Perfectly etched for an easy pickup.

Born Pretty Review

It’s that time again!!  I have a couple stamping plates and polishes to share with you today, so let’s get right into it.

First up is Born Pretty Artist-L006 stamping plate.  This is such a cute plate.  From the woodland creatures, to the little fairies.  The etching is deep for a perfectly crisp pick up.

 

Next is Born Pretty Pure World-L001.  The butterfly images on this plate are by far my favorites.  The flower images are just as gorgeous and easily picked up to create a stunning design on your nails.

 

I also received 2 stamping polishes.  The first is Birth of the Queen, from the Queen Series.  This is a rich, deep, and pigmented purple.  The formula and ease of use is incredible.  The images below show how well the polish shows up on different colored polishes.

 

Next is In Fire from the White Night Series.  If you don’t have a gold stamping polish, you should definitely consider picking this one up.  The formula is great and works well as a stamping polish.

 

Born Pretty has some incredible deals and a wide range of nail art tools and supplies.  If you haven’t shopped their website, go now and be sure to use my code COUK31 for 10% off your regular priced items.
