Review: Lush - Thundersnow Bath Bomb

Lush - Thundersnow Bath Bomb
When your world is feeling stormy and you can not take the pressure, chill out with a peppermint and cocoa absolute weather bomb. Relax in the eye of the storm and listen to the thunder rumbling until it all blows over and the waters settle. The forecast looks clear and breezy
- Lush

Until March this year I hadn't even heard of thundersnow, then about a week after I actually heard it for myself.

This bath bomb is a blue, teal, white in colour. Once in the bath is began to throw out a white foam and turn the water an aqua blue shade. Almost the same colour as Big Blue, but without the mess it makes in your bath.

The scent of this is a bit fresh, a little bit minty. However once the bomb is in the bath I didn't find that it fragranced the water nor my skin afterwards.

This apparently has popping candy in it, but I didn't hear any of that over the running of the bath water. It did leave my skin feeling soft though which is always a good thing.

Overall I unfortunately wouldn't repurchase this bath bomb.

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster Holiday Collection H21 (BMH21)

Today I am back to the Bundle Monster 'Holiday Collection' which consists of 25 different plates.

BM H21 is new baby themed.


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 four full nail image and two smaller images.


All of the images stamped across really well, some of the images are too short to fit on my longer nails. Of them all I think the present is one I would use more often as it isn't new born specific.

Here are a set of nails I did using this plate:

Review: UNT - Ready For Takeoff Base Coat


I don't know about you but glitter is the bane of my life, well when it comes to nail polish. Yes you can use the acetone tinfoil method but that is a bit of an effort. I have dabbled in to using PVA glue / Elmer's glue as a base and while that does work is isn't an ideal base coat, it takes a very long time to dry and leaves a lumpy finish.

I finally decided to bite the bullet and spend some birthday money on an actual peel off base coat, I opted for this UNT version after watching a Nailogical video comparing various ones.

The bottle itself has 15ml of product and is waterbased.

It applies very thinly and dries quickly, which made the fact that it works surprising.

The peel off base coat really did work, I found it applied an dries quickly and I was skeptical of it working however it peeled off the glitter really quickly, easily and mostly in one piece.

Overall I really liked this peel off base, it is non damaging and doesn't peel off too easily but it does when you want it to, using an orange stick.

I think the best thing about this is that it has given me to chance to use over 100 glitter nail polishes I already had in my collection. Yes I wore them before but reluctantly and rarely. Now I can wear any of them for even one day. Before if I wore one I had to think whether I wanted to wear it for a week or so because of the effort in removing.
