Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - BP01

Born Pretty Store came out with their own stamping plates a little while ago now, I wasn't tempted to get this Christmas plate in Spring because festive nails seemed so far away. I ended up buying this one in August when it was on a special offer.


The plate itself is backed with paper, so no sharp edges. It has three full nail images and eight single images. The full nail images are quite small, you could get away with the large tree and the scene images but if you have longer nails then then snowflake plate would be tricky to work with.

The majority of the images stamped really easily, I had issues with the top of the swirly tree though.

Once I have used the stamping plate you will be able to click here for all the nail art using the plate.

I also have a 10% off code for the website which you can use if you want to;

Something really simple today, would have been so much better if it wasn't for the top coat (Leighton Denny Crystal Finish) smudging it!

Review: Lush - Lord of Misrule

review-demo-lush-bath-ballistic-lord-of-misrule-christmas-2013 review-demo-lush-bath-ballistic-lord-of-misrule-christmas-2013

This bath bomb, named after the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, has a strange and magnificent fragrance created by Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine. This bomb will slowly dissolve to reveal a wine coloured centre, with the added sweetness of the world’s first fair trade vanilla absolute, perfectly balanced by the earthy scents of black pepper and patchouli oil -

This bath ballistic is from the Christmas 2013 Collection, it is new for this year. The first thing I noticed about this was the colour, a very green colour with random yellow and pink dots. There is a giant star shape on the top of this as well.


Another point which I think makes this quite unique is the amount of time it took to fizz away, it was well over ten minutes before this stopped fizzing around the bath. Also there is no bits in this one so you can use it without having to put it in a sock to save on the clean up.


First you get a green colour, then it breaks down and the centre which is a pink / red colour begins to spurt out of it. Then things start to get even weirder, there is popping candy inside and you can hear the crackling from that in the water for around five minutes.


The water ends up a grey / brown colour and with the earthy scents and crackling noises you being to feel as if you are sitting in a witches cauldron.


The scent of this bath ballistic is quite an earthy one (not a dirty soil smell though), the main scent is patchouli, some spiciness but there is definitely a softer side to that which I imagine is the vanilla. The scent does linger on your skin for a good couple of hours afterwards. 


This is quite a visually interesting bath ballistic, and it does take a good amount of time to fizz away to nothing and as such it something you will want to have a fair amount of time to watch and to use.

I would get this again, I hope that Lush bring this back again next year.
