Nails: Crushed Floam

I hoped that the Girly Floam base would have shown up better, but it doesn't seem to contrast enough with the Crushed Grape. So I stuck on some rhinestones to try and make the accent stand out more.

Swatch: OPI - Pink Nail Envy (Hawaiian Orchid)

OPI have recently brought out some new shades of the Nail Envy. While the colour versions used to be exclusive to QVC (at least in the UK) now there is three new shades. Below is two coats shown, and the idea is you get all of the benefits of the normal Nail Envy but with the bonus of a nail colour.

EDIT: OPI have renamed Pink Nail Envy to Hawaiian Orchid, and is no longer a QVC exclusive.


Colour: Pink
Finish: Cream
Opacity: Two Coats

This Pink Nail Envy has all of the benefits of standard Nail Envy but in a colour which is great for time saving. Pink Envy I think is only available through QVC.

Review: héhé 021 Stamping Plate from LadyQueen.com*

hehe-021-hehe021-stamping-plate-review hehe-021-hehe021-stamping-plate-review

hehe 021 is a stamping plate from LadyQueen, it comes with a protective blue sticker. This particular plate isn't backed with paper which means the edges can be quite sharp, but unless you squeeze it you should be fine.

The stamping plate is divided in to four quarters, fish skeletons, cats, paws and swirls.


As you can see all four areas stamp well and I didn't have any problems in transferring the polish from the plate to the nails. I like all of the designs and don't think I could chose a favourite,

These are some nail designs I did using this plate:

Orange Cats
Leighton Denny - Hot Under The Collar
MoYou - Special Nail Polish - Black

Pink Swirls
Glamour by YOLI2UL - 825
 W7 - Black
MoYou - Special Nail Polish - Black

W7 - Black
Saffron - Black Glitter
Barry M - Matt White
