Empties: September 2018

OPI - Alcatraz Rocks - This was a textured polish which had dried up, I don't particularly like textured polishes so won't repurchase.
Maybelline - DrRescue Top Coat - This didn't dry quick enough for me. It did leave a nice plump finish but dragged nail art.
Glisten and Glow Top Coat - This is my go to, favourite topcoat. It is quick drying and doesn't cause yellowing or major shrinkage. I have already repurchased [full review].
Beauty Big Bang - Clear Jelly Stamper - I liked this stamping head, it is large enough to cover my longer nails and clear so that placement is much better. I accidently put my nail through the stamping head which means it is useless so I have had to buy a new one [full review].

Baylis and Harding Shower Gel - Rose, Poppy and Vanilla - To me this was scented like coconuts, I didn't like the scent so wouldn't repurchase.
L'Occitane Shower Gel - All three of these really did leave a lingering scent on my skin which isn't something I don't usually find with shower gels. Both of the pink ones were heavily rose scented and the verbena one was citrusy. I'd not buy full sizes of these.

Dove Nourishing Secrets Strengthening Ritual Shampoo and Conditioner - Very much traditionally 'Dove' scented. These were nice enough but not that amazing that I would repurchase.

Montagne Jeunesse - Honey Mask - Scented very strongly of honey, not one I would repurchase [full review].
Essence - All About Matt Powder - My go to pressed setting powder. It makes me matt for a good few hours and most importantly doesn't turn me orange unlike other so called transparent setting powders.
ELF - Poreless Face Primer - All of the ELF primers I have tried before have essentially been the same, silicone based. This one was more of a white lotion type primer and it left my skin sticky. Not my favourite primer so I won't be repurchasing, I have got a different one to try now.

Chap Stick - Flava Craze - These lip balms do what they are supposed to, the scent on this one was of sour apple. I would repurchase this brand again.
So...? Sinful Lip Balm - I don't know if this was supposed to be fragranced with the So Sinful scent but it was more of a coconut scent. The product itself didn't really do much for my lips either so I wouldn't get this again.
Nag Champa Incense - My favourite incense, I will always repurchase this one. I may try others but always go back to this.

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster Holiday Collection H07 (BMH07)

Another review of Bundle Monster 'Holiday Collection' which consists of 25 different plates.

BM H07 is a Halloween themed plate.


This stamping plate is backed with branded backing, so it doesn't have sharp edges, each plate has six images on them. This particular plate has three full nail images and three smaller images.


All of the images stamped across really well. Depending on my current nail length the full images may or may not fit. Of them all I really like the witches shoes.

Here are some sets of nails I did using this plate:

Review: MoYou - Stamping Nail Polish - Emperors Gold*

Review-MoYou-Stamping-Nail-Polish-Emperors-GoldMoYou Stamping Nail Polish - Emperors Gold

 This stamping nail polish is a polish designed specially for stamping which comes in a small cardboard box.

MoYou describe it as;
"Emperor's Gold stamping nail polish by MoYou Nail Fashion is a warm copper shade, ideal for the perfect Christmas designs. This metallic colour will look beautiful as a base or for any Vintage style stamping designs. Try Emperor's Gold with our festive plates for a shimmering manicure".

As they say you can use it as a standard nail polish, which I have swatched below;


Emperors Gold is a warm toned gold. It is good for autumnal nature type nails as well as Christmas one too. The brush is flattened and wide.


I used this on the MoYou stamping mat to show it over a dark base as well as a light base and as you can see it does cover both lighter bases as well as a darker base.

I have used it in some nail art which you can see below;
