GOT Nail Challenge: Dots

The prompt today was dots, for the base I finally got around to using Jade's Fascinio Violeta. The dots were done using China Glaze's Grape Pop which has been in my collection since July 2010.

Nails: Matte Confetti

I thought I would share these nails both shiny and in matte. Matte glitter always surprises me at how nice it looks.

Review: OPI Avojuice - Jasmine


OPI Avojuice - Jasmine Hand and Body Lotion

"A rich, alluring scent of blooming jasmine with a hint of citrus and violet, with smooth, rich moisturisers plus nourishing Avocado and healing Aloe extracts" - LenaWhite

This hand lotion has to be the best day time, on the go hand lotion I have tried.

+ Sinks in quickly
+ Stops hands feeling dry
+ Doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy or oily
+ Smells amazing
+ Scent lingers for a long time
+ 30ml is a great size for the handbag

- Not a intensive hand cream
- Scent may be over powering if you are sensitive to smells

If Jasmine isn't a favourite scent of yours there are other scents available, I've tried a couple of these and they all smell amazing and work in the same way.

30ml - £2.25

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 217 (BM217)

bundle-monster-217-BM217-review-stamping-plate

This stamping plate is from the second Bundle Monster set, from 2011. It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp. 

bundle-monster-217-BM217-review-stamping-plate

Another plate full of six french tip designs, I always have issues lining these up correctly however they all stamped well and if you were talented at doing french tip stamping then I could see these being useful. I do think using the XXL Squishy Stamper might help me to stamp these as I have a tendency to push a little too hard when stamping and end up damaging my nails if they are past a certain length.

Nails: Stamped Gothic

These are a little gothic, I'm not a fan of crosses but I thought it fitted nicely on my nail.

This plate is all french tip designs, my least favourite of stamping designs. Mainly because lining the designs up correctly on all nails is a task and a half. However all of these stamped well and I have actually used the spider web tip image before.

GOT Nail Challenge: Stripes

Stripes is the challenge for this week, I dug out W7 Metallic Saturn which has been in my collection since before March 2012. I stamped some stripes over it which seemed to work well, other than the ring finger annoyingly.
