MeeBox #RiRiMee May 2016 Review + Exciting News!

Every time one of these little boxes pop through my door, I get so excited!  For the last 10 months, this little company have gone from strength to strength in terms of the content and quality of the products that they release.  I have yet to be disappointed!

I am, of course, talking about MeeBox and this months theme was Rihanna!  When I first seen the theme I thought how on earth can Rihanna be a theme?!  But the girls at MeeBox were seriously on point - just take a look at the contents of this box and then try to tell me that you didnt think of Rihanna.  Perfectly chosen polishes, finishes and accessories.

Whats Up Nails Store & Nail Vinyl/Sticker Reveiw

You guys will know by now that I love my nail vinyl's.  They make for a quick and easy manicure in minutes, with no fuss or stress.  I have some vinyl's & stickers from the store Whats Up Nails to share with you today.  Whats Up Nails is an online store selling everything from Nail Polish, Nail tools, Charms and Stamping Supplies, and is run by Lena from Nails By Freckles.

You might remember I used a few of their holiday vinyl's around Christmas time, and I had nothing by praise for the way they performed.  Keep on reading for the manicures I've created this time around, as well as why I think they're different to any of the other vinyl companies out there...

Nail Candi Skin Protecter For Nails Review

If you are still using a clean up brush with acetone, scotch tape or Vaseline around your nails for clean up, then you need to stop and evaluate your life.  The latest craze/trend to sweep through the nail art world is Liquid Latex!  So put down that brush and throw away your scotch tape because this review is heading in a direction where those items aren't invited! 

Today I have a bottle of Nail Candi to share with you.  This is a bottle of Latex based liquid that protects your skin from messy nail art; allowing you to make as much mess as possible and when all is said and done, it peels away as if nothing ever happened.

Before continuing with this review, I must point out that if you have an allergy to latex you cannot use this product!  Not to fear, though, there are loads of barrier products out there now which do not contain latex and are PVA Glue based.  I found an article, which you can read here by CraftyNail where she explains how you can make your own bottle :-)

Nail Cart: Review on my Favourite Water Decals! (And you can personalise them too!)

If you've been here for a while, then you may remember my review on Nail Cart, if not, you can catch up here.  Nail Cart is water decal company run by my friend, Annaliza, from waay across the pond in Edmonton, Canada!  Water decals are small pre-printed pictures and by cutting them out, submerging them in water for around 30 seconds, they become sticky and can be applied to your nails.  Fuss free, mess free, professional manicure in minutes!

Annaliza has come a long way since last May when I first reviewed for her.  She is absolutely killing it with every single set of decals she comes out with.  I mean, have you SEEN the David Bowie set?!  I may need to get myself one of those!!  The best part is, even if you head to her store and cant find anything you fancy (highly unlikely, but still), Annaliza will custom make a set of decals just for you!  Who wants to rock their boyfriends face on their nails for Valentines day?!

Wednesday 3 February 2016 Vinyls & Stickers Review

You will know by now, that I am a lover of effortless nail art, infact, sometimes I think the manicures that took the least amount of time are the ones that turn out the best!  Nail stamping, water decals and nail vinyls are perfect examples of how to achieve the "at home salon manicure" but with half the fuss.  So, whenever I'm in a rush or want to add "a little something extra" to an otherwise boring manicure, I reach for my vinyls!

Today I have some stickers & vinyls from to show you.  This home grown company is run by my friend Kelly and she makes everything you can see on her site herself.  She's been running since 2014 and for the past 2 years her site has gone from strength to strength now listing Liquid Nail Tape as well as the vinyls and stickers.  I would keep an eye on Kelly's site, because she has big big plans for 2016 which may include adding a few more items for sale....

Simply Peel; Thee Must Have Holy Grail Nail Art Product In The History Of Ever?!

Okay, okay, you're probably thinking after reading the title of this post that it can't possibly be the best nail art product ever ever ever - well, let me tell you that it is!

Everytime I use this in my videos, I get so many comments "what's the peel off stuff you're using around your nails?" I will answer that very question in this blog post today!

Simply Peel Latex Barrier, is a latex based liquid that you paint around your nails before proceeding with messy nail art.  The idea is, you go crazy, making as much mess as you normally would (or more if you want!) with a gradient manicure, stamping, watermarble or mega glitter placement, but because you applied the latex, it catches the unwanted polish excess from around your finger, then you peel it off and its as if nothing happened!

Before continuing with this review, I must point out that if you have an allergy to latex you cannot use this product!  Not to fear, though, there are loads of barrier products out there now which do not contain latex and are PVA Glue based.  I found an article, which you can read here by CraftyNail where she explains how you can make your own bottle :-)

On a side note, this is 2 bottles of Simply Peel, but as you can see Bliss Kiss has popped the wrong sticker on the front of the right hand sided bottle - but we'll let them off! ;-)

MeeBox "Ice Queen" December 2015 Review

My friends at MeeBox have done it again!  They have delivered another great box worth more than what you pay for it.  I've said it before (here & here) but you'd be silly not to subscribe at this rate!

If you're a bit like me; loves a bargain and dislikes paying the full price for polish, then this kind of service is for you.  You pay a flat cost of £20.00 which includes paying for everything in the box, shipping AND comfort in knowing that the money spent is waaaay less than the RRP of the contents = Win/Win!

Thursday 7 January 2016 Review & Swatches

I have 3 polishes from the site to show you today, 2 OPI's and a nails inc (my favourite brand!)  as well as a full review on the website itself.
