As I sorted through my nail polish collection I came across my most loved sparkle polishes ''Filthy Gorgeous Prism''.
Unfortunately as I trailed the internet I realised that it was no longer available anywhere and so I have been using it very lightly in case I ever run out .
I have had it for three years (if not longer) and only used half a bottle and it is still in perfect condition , more than likely down to good storage .
I have no idea where it went or why it is now unavailable anywhere but if anyone knows please let me know as I would love to grab another couple of bottles .
The reason I am so i need of finding this polish again is because it has a fantastic sparkle and really does live up to its prism name.
Intense Colour, high Shine and hard wearing is why this is my most loved and perfect polish.
I can wear it anywhere and everywhere on natural nails or on painted colour too and for me there simply is nothing like it (well not that I have found as of yet).
I have found myself staring at it as the holographic topcoat shines in the summer sun , it truly is mesmorising and I for one wish it would be available again.
So if anyone ever sees this or knows of anything similar , please let me know, I am dying to get hold of this gorgeous polish or something like it before I run out
What nail polish is your most loved and you can no longer get hold of ?
Ok so I thought you may be interested in something I found last month that I have been playing with a lot lately when it came to my nails.
As you may already know I paint my nails all of the time and even when it is a strengthening or clear varnish I tend to be sat waiting around for however long it takes and every minute is too long for me.
The Poundshop have their own range of nail polish and other items to go along with them including polish remover, nail art and even this.......
The Nail Drying Spray!
As with all of the items in the store it is only £1 and for that price it is worth a try, especially if it is going to cut my waiting for the polish to dry time down .
I have also been using the Twist and Out Polish remover which I was very impressed with so this is what brought me to trying this originally due to knowing the sister products worked well.
I am so impatient and I am sure I am not alone in this .
I am the type of person who does not have time to sit and wait, I am mum and wife as well as dog handler to three demanding German Shepherds and my every second is spent using my hands in some way or another , even if it is for things less hard core like lifting a cup of tea or dipping biscuits .
I use a range of nail polishes from the cheaper brands to the higher end ones but it does not matter how much you pay or where you get them from, not one of them takes less than a minute to dry and if someone says they do?,,,,,,, well they lie!
The Drying Spray is simply used as expected.
You apply your polish as normal then simply aim the spray at your nails around 60 cm away from the nail and spritz those painted tips.
You then leave alone for 1 minute or longer if you have time and it does all the hard work for you , quicker than it would normally, hopefully.
The spray is cold and the pressure is harsh but more surprising to me is that what came out of it was wet!
I left my nails clear for the 60 seconds after spraying my nails before attempting to pick anything up or touch anything and it seemed to have worked although still a little tacky to the touch so I would recommend leaving a little longer.
It says on the tin that it gives extra shine but in fact I found it made my nails a little more dull for some reason .
It is a great product to own if your forever doing your nails or always in a hurry like me and for only £1 it is most certainly a bargain.
Have you tried Nail drying sprays before, what did you think?
My thoughts -
As with all of the water decals from Charliesnailart.co.uk , these ones are fantastic.
The water decals have a bright and clear design which transfers perfectly onto the nail with a smooth finish .
The designs are so cute and variable breeds of dogs are on this one sheet including some little sunglasses along with a little ''I LOVE DOG'' (they changed the word love for a heart shaped dog paw giving it the extra cuteness) .
The only thing which to me that does not fit is the Urangutang hanging from the tree which has somehow managed to get into the sheet (just take a look at the water bowl picture above to see what I mean).
The Water decals are becoming my most loved accessory for my nail art and with so many different designs available it is never ending for my wanting more .
As you may already know I have never really been a fan f puppies and dogs but over the past couple of years I have had the cuteness thrown at me with my husband buying three very large German Shepherds from Pups as well as my sister buying some rather cute looking puppies herself.
I used to have kittens and cats but over the years they grew and sadly left me giving my husband the opportunity to get his favourite animal into our home .
Taking my little adapted life going from kittens to puppies , I tried adding this little memory into my nail design today and have to say the Nail art decals from Charliesnailart.co.uk were quite adorable to say the least.
As with all of the brands Water decals , these are very simple to apply to the nail and being only £1 for a sheet enough to fill your pretty fingertips with , they are very much affordable .

What do you think of water decals , is this design something you would enjoy ?
We have just a little more than 1 month left of Spring and I for one have been enjoying the beautiful flowers that are blooming in all of their gorgeous colours .
So much so that my husband has decided that he is eventually going to to design our new garden into somewhere that suits us all which even includes a full garden border for the children and I to enjoy a spot of gardening ourselves.
If it was up to him he would have the whole thing paved , we have not been very green fingered so to speak in our previous homes but seen as though we are most certainly not moving any more I am rather excited to have the perfect garden for our family. flowers included.
I have never been great at drawing so adapting those pretty flowers onto my nails would look rather messy so instead I opted for a nail wrap.
The last time I tried the nail wraps they looked gorgeous but this time I found that Charliesnailart.co.uk had a different style but which is applied the same .
Still as affordable as all of their products, these wraps only cost 89p and come in various colours , for me the pretty pale blues I think will be a huge hit this summer .
This is the application process for these particular Decal Wraps-
I have to admit that with this XF style nail wrap , it was a lot harder than the C style nail wrap which were already shaped at one end making it fit easier to the cuticle of the nail unlike these .
I found once adding them straight onto the nail that if I left them to dry to the nail , it then made it easier to trim around the edges but the cuticle area was still my struggle.
If you are great at guessing the shape and size of your nail which I am not then this would be an easy process for you but I had a little struggle at first and for this reason would prefer to use the C style .
The whole process only took 20 minutes which is not bad at all .
The colours stayed bright and cheerful and the Top coat of polish ensured it stayed on the nail for a good 3 to 4 days depending on your day to day doings.
What do you think about the final results?
This week I was going for a little bit of a cute but fun theme and the only way I can incorporate that into my style is applying it to my nails.
That is right , the nails win again by getting a makeover which is always needed and wanted , especially when it involves cute little bunny rabbits. Yes I said it .........
Bunny Rabbits and pretty hearts!
Who said those furry little animals were just for Easter, they are perfect for all Spring and I for one am not ready to let go of this gorgeous season yet.
This time , the glow in the dark aspect was more a fun one for not just me but my kids too.
I am mum to three girls and they are always in love with nail art stickers when there are animals being sported on them but having glow in the dark nail art stickers it meant it would maybe keep them entertained when they went to bed, I know I used to get all excited to see those glow in the dark stars on the ceiling as a child and I was sure this would be the same .
Look how they transfer the boring plain nail into something more instantly.
Stickers are so easy to apply , you simply paint your nails , (if you wish), in any shade of colour and leave to dry completely. You then simply add your sticker to the nail and then apply a top coat on top to secure it in place.
Charliesnailart.co.uk have a huge range and it seems to be my only nail art supplier at the moment for the endless amounts of fantastic stickers, transfers and nail art accessories especially as they are so affordable and easily delivered to my door.
I simply painted my nail with a polish , for me I have been using a strengthening polish so it is clear which works well with a clear pink Iridescent half moon on the side of each nail .
I then applied one of each style sticker to each nail (just to show you the variation of this sheet) , pressed firmly then applied a top coat to secure .
Glow in the dark Bunny and heart nail art stickers are only £! and you get 35 individual stickers which would do your nails 3 times (if you placed one sticker on every nail).
The stickers were very easy to apply, they stuck well but it made no difference as I had placed a top coat on top to secure even more.
Because the stickers were flush with the nail, I had no edges popping up giving me that urge to start picking at them .
The design is cute, my daughters in particular loved the glow in the dark aspect of them although we had to wait till very late to see it and when we did it was only a slight shade of green on the outline of the bunny and hearts, we could see that the glow in the dark did work.
Charliesnailart.co.uk have so many more designs for you to give a try to, why not give the glow in the dark Kitty, dog and bear or glow in the dark Micky Mouse ones to.
What do you think of this design ?
