Swatch: Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Fair 1 v Cool Medium 2


Having recently bought the Cool Medium 2 shade of the concealer I thought I would quickly swatch it against the lightest shade Fair 1. It is a lot darker, leaning more yellow undertone in shade.

Make Up Collection: Palettes

The final draw of my first storage unit has two eyeshadow palettes inside.

First is Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette, Give Them Nightmares a dark, purple based palette.

Second is Make Up Academy Pretty Edgy Palette, which has to be one of my favourite palettes. The packaging is black and studded. The ash black, Envy is ideal for my brows as well.

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 414 (BM414)


This stamping plate is from the forth Bundle Monster set, the first CYO (create your own). It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp, comes covered with a blue cellophane sticker which you have to peel off before use.


BM414 has three full nail images and three smaller ones. Its quite abstract and funky, I like it but have yet to use the cricket ball and seahorse. All stamped easily.

You can see all of the designs I have used this plate in here, and some of those are below:

Review: LadyQueen - Shell Studs 5mm Silver*


These shell shaped studs are from LadyQueen, they are silver in colour and are 5mm in size. They also come in gold and in 3mm and 5mm in both colours. There are twenty studs within the pack.

The shells are hollow underneath so they stick to the nail by the perimeter of the shell. They don't stick out from the nail too much either which is always good.

To use these I stuck them to wet topcoat but you could stick them down with nail glue. Another tip would be to seal them in to the nail with topcoat.

With these nails I used a pearl stud as well as some caviar beads to help accent the shell nail;


I used some plain round studs as well as the shell studs for these nails;
