Born Pretty Store Review!

*This product was provided for me to review
For more information see my disclaimer policy

Hi everyone,
Today I have a very exciting product to share with you from the Born Pretty Store.
I was contacted by them a few weeks ago and asked to do a review. For those of you who don't know, Born Pretty Store is an online store which specialises in nail art products. It also sells make-up, jewellery and accessories. 

 The product I chose to review was the 5mm Shiny Mini Metal Shell Design Stud, product number 10181. These little shell studs and are available in two colours: gold and silver. You can also choose from two sizes: 3mm and 5mm. I chose the gold 5mm studs.

In each packet you receive 20 studs, which I think is pretty good. You can use these again and again - there are so many uses for them! These studs are actually curved, which you can see in the picture above.

Sinful Colors Amethyst

*This polish was purchased by me
Hi everyone,
After showing you some of the nail polishes I picked up over the last few months ( you can see my haul post here) I was asked to do a swatch of the Sinful Colors polishes I bought. Today I thought I'd show you Sinful Colors Amethyst.

I have to admit one of the only reasons why I bought this nail polish was because of its name Amethyst. Amethyst is my birthstone, so as soon as I saw the name, I knew I had to have it! I also bought it because I have a weakness for purple polishes (but you probably know that already!).

This polish has a lovely cream, glossy finish. I'd say this purple really stands out, either by itself or with nail art.

No7 Damson Dream Swatch

*This nail polish was purchase by me
Hi everyone,
Today I thought I'd show you a swatch of one of my favourite metallic polishes: No7 Damson Dream.

I first tried this colour when I found it in my mums collection. As soon as I saw it I knew, I was going to love it - I love any polish which is purple!

This nail polish has a metallic finish, and gives you the illusion of longer nails!
I'm not really sure how to describe this nail polish, it kind of reminds me of jewels, but at the same time reminds me of berries. It has a slight gold shimmer, which can be seen in different light.

Red Leopard Print

Hi everyone,
You may or may not have noticed, but over the weekend I created an instagram for my blog!
You can view the page here. Please follow it, if you want! :)

Anyway, onto the nails!
Today's design is inspired by fashion. In the majority of the magazines I have been reading I have seen a lot of leopard print clothes. In one magazine I saw a really nice metallic red leopard print top, as soon as I saw it, I knew it would make a nice design for my nails.
Here it is:

I used No7 Salsa, Revlon Gold Coin and Models Own Nail Art Pen in Black
