Sparkly Nails review&nailart

Hey friends
Its Friday! I am looking forward to having a nice relaxing weekend.how about you?
Today I have a review for you from Sparkly Nails.  
I was sent some nail Chevron stencils to review which I found incredibly easy to use!
Here is a list of items I used for this nailart review.

  • Chevron nailart stencils from Sparkly Nails.
  • Vivien Kondor polishes in Neon Yellow and Neon Green.
  • Barry M paint in Clear. and Textured paint in Majesty.
  • Charlies Nailart holographic sequins.
  • BeautyUK polish in White.
I started with a white base on all nails. then I painted the pointer middle and little finger in neon yellow. the thumb I left white with 2 coats.
I then waited for the nails to fully dry and I carefully placed the chevron stencils on the nails using the neon green and majesty.when dry I gave them a top coat and while wet I placed the sequins on the nails.

Sparkly Nails stock a wide range of nail art products; from nail stickers to stripers, nail art gems, nail studs and spikes and lots more...  Just have a browse through the website click HERE

My recent Favourites!

Hi friends
I am a little late with this post but better late than never!
I thought I would share some of my favourite's for the month of May.

From the picture left to right..

Barry M Sunset Nail Paint 10mlIve been pinkin and Barry M Sunset Nail Paint Top Coat 10ml
I thought I would give this new collection a try and I was so glad I did!
The polish is a lovely pink shade perfect for summer and goes on well.I gave 2 coats and then applied the top coat over it to seal the polish.It gave a glossy shiny gel like finish and stayed on for I would say the best part of a week! after day4 a small tiny chip but nothing major I was really pleased with this buy and will be trying the other shades!

Olay 2in1 Cleanser & Toner
Olay 2in1 Cleanser & Toner is great for gently cleanses the skin to remove dirt, oil and make-up, I found it didn't make my skin feel dry or sticky it felt clean, cool and refreshed I used this after cleaning and washing my skin during my usual face routine very good product.

Victoria Secret Total Attraction Fragrance.
OMG I am a huge fan of Victoria Secret! there is a store in the Trafford Centre Manchester and it is the most gorgeous girly store and changing rooms I have ever seen in my life! The scents are all beautiful and I have a few in my collection as they all smell amazing but lately I have been reaching for the Victoria Secret Total Attraction Fragrance mist set!
Flirt with the bright freshness of cherry orchid and lily blossom,
infused with conditioning aloe vera and calming chamomile.

Victoria Secret Total Attraction Body Wash
Flirt with the bright freshness of cherry orchid and lily blossom. This foaming body wash lathers on with conditioning aloe vera for a gentle, refreshing clean.

Victoria Secret Total Attraction Hydrating Body Lotion
Flirt with the bright freshness of cherry orchid and lily blossom. With nourishing aloe, oat and grapeseed extracts, this fast-absorbing lotion replenishes moisture and leaves skin silky.

 L'Oréal Paris Dermo-Expertise Triple Active Day Multi-Protection Moisturiser - Normal/Combination 50ml
I have been using this day cream a lot lately as it acts as a base under my daily makeup also.
My skin feels soft fresh and moisturized The formula, enriched with Ceramide and Vitamin B5, leaves my skin looking more radiant.

INM Out The Door Top Coat,
America's no.1 super drying top coat! I have been using this for over a year or more now and I find it gives a brilliant finish high shine and helps my polish last longer on the nails. it dries fast and does not yellow the nails. love this top coat!

Vivien Kondor polishes in Neon Yellow and Neon Pink and Light Glitter.
I absolutely love this brand of polishes!I have been wearing the Neon Pink and yellow on my toes (yellow flowers) love them.
I recently did a product review for Vivien Kondor you can see HERE
The polishes are a good quality and apply well on the nailsand the colurs are all fabulous!

Clarins Lip Balm Crayon in 02 creamy pink
lipbalm crayon from Clarins provides sheer luminous colour that hydrates like a lip balm, comforts like a lipstick and offers the shine of a gloss. The sensitive pigments of the creamy pink shade reacts with the pH of your lips to create a unique shade.

I love this on my lips as it feels so moisturized and glossy and wears well for a while great for summer!

Statement necklace from oceanic jewellers 
I recently did a review on this necklace click HERE



I have been loving wearing this necklace with my green/mint vest tops and maxi dresses (when the weather is sunny) I have had so many compliments when wearing this it is so pretty and not to heavy on the neck great piece of jewelry!

That is all for now my lovelies but more posts coming up shortly!
