Stamping Plate: MoYou London - Gothic Collection 04

 I bought this stamping plate in September 2014, I hadn't gotten around to reviewing it until now.


This plate is rectangle and has a selection of Halloween / Gothic images on it, 12 full nail images. All of the images stamp across well, and here are some nails I have done using the plate;

Then and Now Throwback Nails: Purple Half Moons

These nails were originally done in August 2010, so 11 years ago.

I don't think with these nails there is a massive difference between the two, I haven't done half moons in a long time and I also hadn't used the Stargazer polish in years. Used the same dark purple polish but a different lighter polish as I didn't still have the original.

Nail Polish Swatch: Barry M - Hot Chilli (Summer 2021 Gellys)

Barry M released a range of six gelly polishes for Summer 2021. I have compared this one to previous gelly polishes. I don't think they are actual dupes of any others but they are very similar. Hot Chilli is most like Blood Orange but slightly lighter.

Topic Tuesday: Favourite Shade of Blue Polish


After looking through my polishes I think right now my favourite blue polish is Tonic Polish Dragons at Dusk. The polish is a darker, navy base with a duochrome, purple and cyan.

Empties: March 2021

Lush Snow Fairy Bubble Bar | Used this over three baths, made lots of bubbles and smelled sweet. Might repurchase this.
Dunelm Tea Lights | Basic tea lights, don't burn for too long. Would repurchase.
Lush Sex Bomb Bath Bomb | Jasmine scented but not too floral, more musky. Would repurchase [review].
Nag Champa Incense | This one is particularly potent, not one you can ignore, but actually has a scent rather than just burning wood. Won't need to repurchase for a while as I have a box of 10 left to go.

Boots Acetone Free Remover | Another basic product that does what you'd expect. I think I have another backup otherwise would repurchase.
Charlie Edge Body Spray | I don't buy these for myself, the scent on this one was something I didn't mind. Happy to have finished it, wouldn't buy this for myself though.

Vosene Shampoo | Does what it is supposed to do, the scent is medicated and does linger on my hair if my conditioner isn't strongly scented. I'll buy this again.
DermaV10 Foot Peel | This started to peel around seven days after using them. They worked okay for my foot size 6, they'd probably not fit over a UK 10 foot size.
