Easter Nail Art - Polka Dots & Bunny {Purple & Mint}


Just another quick post today to show you my nails for Easter, I had some more time for nail art, yay!

I ended up doing a simple design of mint polka dots on a purple base with a little bunny on my ring finger. I was planning on doing something a bit more extravagant, like a pretty painted egg design....yeah, that was a fail haha.

Nail Art - Leopard Print & Studs {Pale Pink & Gold}


Just a quick post today to show you the nail art I'm currently wearing. Yep, I finally found some time for nail art!

I was feeling a little bit uninspired so decided to have a look through some of my previous nail art designs....of course I couldn't go past a little bit of leopard print and I just love this pale pink and gold colour combination, so I decided to sort of re-create a mani I had done a little while ago.

Essence 'Gel Nails at Home' Trend Edition {Swatches & Review}

Hello Lovely Readers!

essence cosmetics have just released their brand new 'Gel Nails at Home' trend edition in Australia and I'm excited to be able to share my thoughts with you today!

Gel nails are really popular at the moment so it's no surprise that more and more brands are releasing their own gel nails systems, this means you can get the gel polish look for a fraction of the price of regular salon visits.

The cool thing about the essence Gel Nails at Home system is you don't need to buy and use any special gel polishes, you can just use any of your favourite regular Essences nail polishes. Another great thing about this system is the peel off base coat, yep that's right you can just peel the polish straight off! Regular gel manicures require you to soak your fingers in acetone for 10 or so minutes before the polish can be easily removed, this peel of base coat means no more soaking and no more wasting acetone, yay!

The lamp that is used with this system is a mini 'one-nail-at-a-time' LED lamp that connects via USB. You can plug it into your computer or into your phone charger (if it has a USB connection).


The 'Gel Nails at Home' gel system consists of a nail cleanser, a primer, a peel off gel base coat, three gel topcoats (a clear, a french finish and a 'special effect' finish), a gel corrector pen and a mini USB LED lamp.
