Uber Chic Beauty Fairytale 02- Swatch & Review

Welcome back lovelies, this week seems to have dragged quite a bit. I think that is mostly because for half of it I've had hardly any sleep, thank you Lexi.

So for today's post I have a review of the new Uber Chic Fairytale 02 plate, all of these designs are a Lexi original ;)

26 Great Nail Art Idea's- Sunshine

I can not believe it's Friday again. this week has flown by and I've had nothing but issues. First, my brand new MacBook Pro broke so had to send that back for a refund. Then I woke up one morning to find Lexi had covered her hands and feet in nail polish, it was pink so a bit hard to stay angry about that one LOL. To stop this from happening again we brought a safety gate to keep her out of the living room, the first one we got was too small so had to take that back, luckily the second more expensive one fit nicely. But enough of my rambles, let's get into today's post, another prompt for the Crumpets Nail Tart's nail art challenge.

Painted Polish by Lexi and Cupcake Polish Anniversary Duo- Swatch & Review

Woohoo its Friday! Hope everyone has had a good week and are looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. I am off to Aqua fit again tonight with my mum so that should be fun LOL, I actually really enjoyed myself last time and wasn't aching to bad the next day which was nice. So let's get into today's post, I have the Painted Polish by Lexi and Cupcake Polish anniversary duo to share with you today.


This gorgeous duo is for both brands 4th year anniversary, huge congratulations to Lexi and Sara for this huge accomplishment. This beautiful duo was inspired by the Hydrangea which is the flower that represents 4 years anniversary. 

Painted Polish by Lexi Here's to 4 Years



The first polish is from the lovely Painted Polish by Lexi, I have a huge soft spot for this brand, not only are the polishes amazing and gorgeous to work with but Lexi is my daughters name so I am always going to love anything that is linked to my little girl. This beautiful Iris ultra holographic is fully opaque in 2 coats and gorgeous to apply. 

Cupcake Polish 4 Years and Blossoming



Another brand which I am fast becoming addicted to is Cupcake Polish, there polish for the duo is this gorgeous light pink linear holo with a subtle pink shimmer. This was another beautiful 2 coater polish and a breeze to apply. I have lots more Cupcake Polish to share with you soon, and I am so tempted to get their new Mod About You collection. 

My final thoughts on this beautiful duo is nothing but love and praise for these two ladies, the polishes are pretty and elegant and the formula was lovely to work with. This set is available now in the UK from Rainbow Connection for £22 or you can get it directly from both brands for $25. I will link both brands down below with their social and media and I will pop in a link for all of you UK ladies, grab them before they are gone guys as these are limited edition and won't be restocked. 


Another big congratulations to these lovely ladies! I could not pick a favourite out of these two I love them both equally two of my favourite colours to wear on my nails and then add the holo its just perfection. 

Would love to know if any of you guys have picked up this duo? Which one would be your favourite? Let me know down in the comments. 

As always my lovelies have a fabulous weekend and I will chat to you all again on Monday.

Born Pretty Store Metallic Nail Lacquer & Stamping plate- Swatch & Review

*Press Sample*
Hello my lovelies, it's hard to believe that we are already in the middle of the week. So far this week has been packed full of nail mail and plenty more on the way, I had a recent splurge before I start my no buy next month. There are plenty of gorgeous polishes and plates coming your way soon, as well as my first giveaway which I will be holding on Instagram. So for today's hump day post, we have some more goodies sent to me from Born Pretty Store.


This time I received one of their new metallic style polishes and one of the new stamping plates they have recently launched.

Silver Sword




Silver Sword (#39763) is a silver metallic polish with a mirror effect, I used 3 coats to get this fully opaque. It really does reflect quite well and it has a nice to work with formula. It is slightly brush strokey but I think that is to be expected with this kind of formula. 


I was also sent a lovely stamping plate BP-L071 (#39714), the bottom half of the plate is full of full-size nail images. Then on the top part, you have a buffet style arrangement that makes up a ladies face and hair. The plate measures 14.5cm by 9.5cm and the full-size images are 2cm by 1.3cm so they are good for longer nails but might be slightly harder to use for those who have nails that are on the wider side. The images picked up really nicely first try and for my stamping, I used one of the newer stamping polishes, which is described as a watermelon red (#37015). 

Once again some really good quality products at great prices, if you are looking for a silver metallic then I would definitely recommend this one. To counteract the streaking issue it probably is best to use the three stroke method when applying the polish. I would love to know what you think of these products, let me know down below. 

Born Pretty Store sell a variety of nail products among other beauty items. They are always of good quality, and they offer shipping worldwide, it does take quite a while to get to you but the products are definitely worth the wait. Don't forget you to use my discount code KHDB10 to get 10% off all full priced items. I will leave links to the website and their social media below so you can check them out.  


I hope the rest of your week goes well and I will see you back here on Friday for another instalment of the Crumpets Nail Tart's 26 Great Nail Art Idea's challenge.
