Sparkly Nails

I know you're probably excited about all of the Halloween nail art.  Personally, I've had my fair share.  In case you feel the same way, I have something totally different.
As part of a product review, I received from Sparkly Nails a Floral Swirl Jewel Sticker sheet to compliment any mani in just a few minutes.  

Using Kunimitsu 180 Years Old (see full review here) (I call it "Yoshi"), Zoya Josie and Rocky I came up with this:

Here's the full Floral Swirl Jewel Stickers sheet
Floral Swirl Jewel Stickers

This is the base design.  Somewhat of a gradient and "Yoshi" dont need much more to be a killer mani but it's nice to be able to dress it up, plus, it is Halloween. :-p

and Viola!!!

Easy to apply, simply take off the sheet, stick on and seal with top coat.  Done deal.  My nails had were not even completely dried when I applied.  Am a dare devil!!! 
If you're that much of a risk taker, be 100% SURE where you will place it.  If your nails arent dry and you try to remove the sticker, your "paint job" will get messed up.

Here's a little of Sparkly's history:
"I formed the business in 2004 after finding I couldn't get all the supplies I needed to complete a beauty course, which I began after finishing my business degree at Bournemouth University.
Seeing a gap in the market, I invested what was left of my business_awardstudent loan into the business. I purchased a selection of nail art gems and a web design package and taught myself, with no previous experience, to build an e-commerce website.  Following my degree I went back to college and studied BTEC Beauty Therapy Sciences and worked in salons and spas to ensure that I had a full beauty background.
Nine years later, Sparkly Nails is going strong.  We now stock a vast number of ranges, which all started from one range of products, nail gems - we now stock well over 100 different style nail art gems!  This year alone we have introduced new product lines: colour studs, flowers and nail art shell, along with a much wider selection of nail stickers, water decals, pearls and gems and we will continue to invest and increase choice for our customers. "

Check it out for yourself.  You'll find absolutely EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!
Great customer service, prompt shipping and of course great pricing.

what do you think?? I love reading your comments!!!

China Glaze: Monsters Ball (glow in the dark polish EEEK)

"You're invited to the China Glaze Monsters Ball! This Halloween, China Glaze introduces a party of spooky sparkles and tantalizing textures. You’re sure to have a hauntingly good time with this limited edition six-piece collection shrouded in mystery and dripping with lavish color."

As part of a product review, I received three of the six limited edition pretties of this Monsters Ball!
Hurry and get them soon! this week is the week!!!

I figured I'd have some Halloween fun! and made this Dracula nail from the Halloween Tutorial by Nail World.

and using Bumo in the Night as a base color I made these spookie eyes (I always wanted to make spooky eyes) spookier because of the rich texture by the base color.  
Of course I had to dress them up.  It's Halloween!!!!!!!! and using Fang-Tastic's multi-colored glitters gave my spooky eyes a nice "dress"

Fang-Tastic is as I said, a multi-colored glitter topper on a clear base.  It's the perfect "dress-me-up" for any color and occasion

And lastly, 
Ghoulish Glow.
Simply "charge" by exposing it to light, turn the light off and watch it glow.  
It's like ghostly matter.

Just received, for review, a sample of Together, an all natural fragrance.

For every bottle sold of Together, Pour le Monde will donate 10% to benefit the Cancer Support Community which just launched the Breast Cancer Experience Online Registry, which tracks the social and emotional needs of breas cancer survivors around the world.  Together is free of harmful chemicals such as phthalates, chemical sunscreens and petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and dyes.  Perfect for people with sensitivities, pregnant and nursing moms and those who want to live healthy.

Pour le Monde's natural fragrances are recognized by:

Together is described to have a top subtle fruity nuances weaved into an exquisite bouquet of  freesia, jasmine and violet with an alluring combination of woodsy back notes.  To me, it has a fruity "after-scent" (as opposed to after taste if you know what I mean) and an earthy scent and is made on a base of blend of woods, madasgascar vanilla, balsam and indoneisan patchouli.

1.7 fl. oz/50 ml eau de parfum (the good stuff) spray is available for $95 at www.plmparfums.com
