Two Birds Lacquer was created by a lovely lady named Stacey, who hand blends all her 3 free lacquers in Perth, WA. Her first collection, the Childhood Treats collection, was inspired by all the yummy lollies from her childhood.

Ulta3 'Strawberry Sundae' and 'Outasight'


Just a quick post today to show you some new polishes that were sent to me by the lovely ladies at Ulta3!

Ulta3 is an Australian cosmetics brand that offer great products for a very reasonable price. I tend to use a lot of their polishes in my nail art as they are easy to work with, have a great colour selection and at $2 a polish they are a very affordable option!

For this look I used two coats of 'Strawberry Sundae' and two thin coats of 'Outasight'

Nail Art Tutorial: Vintage Roses

Hello lovely readers!

Recently I've been asked by a few people on Instagram how I do some of my nail art designs and what a better way to explain then with a tutorial! I've been wanting to do nail art tutorials for a while now and now that I have this blog I hope it can become a regular thing.

 I decided to start with this  vintage rose print because it's a simple but very pretty design....So lets get started!

Glam Polish 'Unicorn Sparkles'


Today I have a lovely polish from Glam Polish to show you called 'Unicorn Sparkles'. Unfortunately this was a limited edition shade and is no longer available :( however if you check out Glam Polish's website I'm sure you'll find something you love just as much!

Unicorn Sparkles has a pretty purple base with a holographic shimmer and loads of tiny-medium sized hex and circle glitters in green, pink, purple and blue. It even has pink diamond shaped glitter!

This polish has a nice smooth formula which leans a little bit on the sheer side but can be opaque on its own with two thick-ish coats. I added a third thin coat for these photos just to add extra sparkle.
