Sally Hansen Miracle Gel World Wide Red (409) Swatches and Review

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 409 World Wide Red - Swatch Sunlight

After mixed results with Frill Seeker and Rosey Riviter, I tried out Sally Hansen Miracle Gel World Wide Red next.  It has an almost crelly formula.  Much less opaque than either of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes I tried previously but not quite jelly either.  This red has a touch of coral in it.  Not enough to be a coral, just not quite a true red either.  It leans slightly more orange than my photos show, but that could[Read more]

Purple Nail Art For #CBBNov With A England Angel Grace

A England Angel Grace CBBNov Purple Nails Prompt

Halfway through the Canadian Beauty Bloggers #CBBNov challenge and the prompt for this weekend is purple. We have already covered plaid, wine, poppies and stamping.  Some of these are obviously easier for nail bloggers but there are some makeup looks too. For purple, I started with a base of A England’s Angel Grace which is an orchid purple scattered holo.  Topped with double stamping of the same spilled paint stain type image from Pueen’s Nature Lover 02 plate using Mundo[Read more]

Nail Stamping With A England In Robe & Crown #CBBNov

CBBNov Stamping Prompt - A England In Robe and Crown - BP Gold - Pueen Geo Lover 02 plate - Swatch

I prefer challenges I can actually keep up with and #CBBNov seems to be working for me with just two prompts a week.  Today, we are doing stamping.  Easier for us nail bloggers than the regular beauty bloggers, but I am hoping to see some eyeliner stamping and similar reviews from them! Today is lazy nail art because I used the polish I was already wearing and just added stamping.  My base is two coats of A England In Robe[Read more]

We have a new challenge over at the Canadian Beauty Bloggers.  This month, we are going to be sharing some makeup and nail looks with various prompts.  Check #CBBNov to see all of the other looks.  The prompt for Day 1 is Plaid and I went for a monochrome look rather than more traditional plaid colours. Starting with a base of Quo Runway Ready, I stamped the plaid design from Pueen’s Geo Lover 02 plate using MoYou White Knight and Mundo de Unas[Read more]

Half Moon Nail Art For #31DC2016

31DC2016 Half Moons Cirque Dear Dahlia

Day 18 of #31DC2016 is half moon nail art.  I rarely wear half moon nails, just not a fan of the look personally but it seemed like it should be simple.  Everyone uses those hole punch protector stickers so I set out to Dollarama and then Staples in search of them but everywhere is either sold out or do not sell them since seemingly people do not use them??  A helpful worker in Dollarama pointed out some Halloween stickers that[Read more]
