Another quick swatch post today, showing you this lovely thermal nail polish called Euna. The collection consists of 22 Duo chrome polishes, they are all beautiful and have the most suiting names.
Euna is a thermal polish that is a warm pale pink with bronze shimmer in warm state. It transits into a olive toned bronze while in cold state.

Seriously. …. who would have thought to pair pink with bronze? They look so good together!

I love my thermal polishes. .. A lazy girl’s secret to pretty nails without effort. I paint mine in thermal when I’m not stamping and doing anything fancy at all. 

Thank you for reading and have a fun filled Tuesday!

Hello there!
It’s Friday night… I am missing #smooshynailsunday this week and I am already having withdrawn symptoms! Slightly busy recently so I couldn’t re-do my nails in time. Boohoo!
This week, I am jumping onto the magnetic polish bandwagon! While everyone else is now on the mirror/holo chrome powder trend! I am always behind with the nail trends.. although it is not my cup of tea, you should check the chrome nail trend out!

I am using one of my untrieds from the stash! This is Masura magnetic polish “Sapphire of Heaven”, what a wonderful name for this beauty!
To be honest, it did take me awhile to work out how best to use this magnetic polish. It is not as easy as the high street magnetic polishes where you just apply, then hover the magnet over the wet nails! This Masura one requires a little bit of patience and strategy!
For the stamping, I have chosen the Sloteazzy stamping plate… an untried plate from the stash too! Gosh I am being good ;P The heart pattern is said to be tricky in the real watermarble world. I am glad this plate sorts it out for me! Since the hearts are running vertically down the nail. I made sure my magnetic polish is reflected in the same way. This way, the pattern can help show off the cat eyes effect of the magnetic polish.

For this manicure: I’ve used:
  • Bundle Monster Blogger Collaboration Stamping Plates – BM-XL210, Sloteazzy
  • Masura Precious Stones “Sapphire of Heaven”
  • Born Pretty stamping polish in black
  • Seche Vite fast drying top coat
I hope you like the mani and the close-ups! Do you like the reflective properties of the polish?
I purchased the Masura polish and the Sloteazzy plate from Rainbow-Connection.co.uk (not affiliated links). Please note this polish shade is currently out of stock.
Thank you and have a great weekend🙂

Morning! Hope you’re well!

Today I’m reviewing the Born Pretty Chameleon Nail Polish #201, as well as showing you my shop sparkly spider Web manicure🙂

Chameleon Nail polish #201

Born Pretty Chameleon Nail Polish #201 [colour changing] (photo swatch) @iamcherrylemon

Born Pretty Chameleon Nail Polish #201 [colour changing] (photo swatch) @iamcherrylemon

This is a multi chrome polish which shifts from bronze to purple to blue to green. It looks best in indirect sunlight and it changes tones depending on the light source. I love the colour under evening sunlight, this polish appears bronze!
To use: must apply a black or dark nail colour as base. Then apply 2 to 3 coats of this polish plus a top coat.
The formula of this polish is smooth but thin. Hence you’ll need at least 2 coats before it will show up well.

I’ve applied 2 coats on all my swatches shown on this post.

This polish is currently priced at $6.99 for 6ml ( Born Pretty online store). You can use my 10% discount code FTL91 at checkout.

Since the polish looks kinda mysterious and spooky. I’ve chosen to stamp it with a spider web pattern using holo stamping polishes. It seems to suits it pretty well!

Hi there! This is “Fire to the Rain” by CbL for their summer 2016 collection. It is a beautiful crelly packed with shimmer. It is like wearing rubies on my nails! The pictures here cannot do the polish justice, it is so much nicer if seen in person. 
All swatches are done with 2 coats with a layer of fast drying top coat.

For the stamping, I’ve chosen to use Moyou London Explorer 09 for the beautiful patterns. They look authentic in this antique looking gold stamping polish! It is Moyou London stamping polish in Jungle gold. 

The 2 green rhinestones really set off the whole design and eye catching. I like this being much🙂

What do you think of the red base colour?

Thank you!

Hello! It’s smooshy nail Sunday again! Love these smooshy weekends!

This week I’ve only used 1 polish brand! It is Barry M! I love this high street brand, it has a huge range of colours, coming in various formula and finishes. They’re priced very well too. Normally polishes are £2.99 and gel look (plus other special polishes) are £3.99. 

For the smooshy; 

Barry M nail paint in NP292 Navy, Foil effects in NP319 silver and Gelly in GNP29 Chai.

For the add-ons, one used Moyra stamping polish in white and Born Pretty stamping polish in black. Moyou London Artist Collection plate 09.

Morning and happy Saturday!

Today I’m sharing a bright and beautiful polish swatch plus manicure! This is PNL “Know your glow”, it had been described as a neon purple. It does look pink on me! Either way, it’s a cheery shade! 

The formula of the polish is good to work with, fast drying and opaque in 2 coats. I’ve topped it with Glass Slipper fast drying top coat which is also from Princess nail lacquer.

Next, I’ve used Uber Chic beauty stamping plate 1-01 and chosen a bold chevron pattern. I’ve used my CBL stamping polishes in Turq’d, Lilac Petals and Amethyst Glow. This is to create a slight gradient look to the stamping.

I’ve used my clear XL short stamper for precise placement of the pattern. 
I’m happy with this manicure and I hope you do too🙂

You can find the original version on SisterLacquer Instagram account. Her version is more pinky and Summery! I think my colour combination is slightly autumn inspired?😛
I still like it as it was actually easy to recreate and it looks great! 

Uber Chic plates are just a dream to work with! I almost have all their collection sets. Just eyeing the latest ones from Nail Artisan UK. ;P

Hello! I’m in for another nail challenge… I’m getting very busy recently with these but I’m liking it!😛

Ok so this challenge is hosted by @baby_mama_nails and @themermaidpolish, two very talented ladies on Instagram. They’ve started a monthly challenge when every month we post a nail creation using the chosen colours. For August, theme is “anything goes’… So it will just be nautical or sea related. 

My entry for the Magical Mermaid month is the blue and silver manicure.

I have not kept my nails long, and it seems some of the Moyou London plate designs are way too big for my nails now. Boohoo! 

Thank you for dropping by and have an awesome day! 

Smooshy nails Sunday ( white, Rosy pink and fluorescent yellow) with stamping add-ons @iamcherrylemon

​Smooshy nails Sunday entry (14th Aug 2016) [white, rosy pink and fluorescent yellow] #smooshynailsunday challenge 

Hello! Here’s another smooshy nails manicure for you! This time the chosen colours are white, rosy pink and fluorescent yellow. I’m not too confident with this combo. My first Smooshy nail-fail was that I’ve chosen some funny colour combo and it made my nails look like they’re bleeding! (Basically I’ve used holo peach, holo reddy pink and gold. …)

Polishes used:

Sinful Colors in Snow me White 

NYX salon formula nail polish in Hot Yellow

Seventeen gel colours in Raspberry woowoo

Seche Vite fast drying top coat  
Maybe the fluorescent yellow is too bright for me. Hm.

Anyhow, that’s my solo shot for smooshy nails entry. For add ons, I’ve stamped it with bronze polish. 
I quite like how this looks; not my usual style but it looks OK😀

Thank you and I hope you’ve enjoyed smooshy nails! It is one of the easier nail art!
