Nail Art Compilation

Hello there !
I've been doing a lot of nail art lately , so i thought that it would be fun to make a post with all the nail arts i've made in the past few weeks .
I use a lot of gel polishes now , and of course all of my regular polishes are getting some tlc too ! I've discovered something that turns your regular polish into a gel polish , called Gelibility
It's truly a fun thing (i do believe it excists quite some time , but it's new to me ...) , you need the Stick It! basecoat and the Fix It! mixing gel/topcoat . 50% regular polish and 50% Gelibility Fix It ! Mix well , and cure in your LED lamp for 60 sec or in a UV for 120 sec's. You have to prep your nails like you would do with a real Gel or Gelpolish , apply a thin coat of Stick It! , cleanse , apply 2 to 3 coats of your polish mix and a 4th coat with Fix It Alone . Mix well , and cure in your LED lamp for 60 sec or in a UV for 120 sec's ... i'll try to do a post on this particular product soon . I also am testing a Product that's called Gel Touch ( i used it in my manicure i've done for my Born Pretty review) , Apply you regular nailpolishes like usual , make sure it's completely dry ( 30 min to 1 hr ) and then apply one or 2 coats of Gel Touch , cure it in your LED lamp for 60 sec's or in a UV for 120 sec's . Gives you a gel wear effect , looks like gel and it should make your manicure last for 14 days .
Still testing this out , i'll do a post of this product too ...

So i haven't bought a lot of makeup lately , however a bought meself crazy on nail art stuff :)
I have discovered a few fun webshops where i buy all of my supplies ... i list of those will come in a later post .

So now on to all the creativity i had :D , some are inspired by a few of my favorite youtuber's and a lot of them are my own inspiration . I can't remember what i've used for most of them , but i'll try to give you as much info of what i've used , as i can remember :D
Get ready for a loooooooooooong post with tons of pictures (forgive me the bad quality of some of them ... )

I hope you enjoy and let me know if you would like to see more nail art / reviews !

Review and test : Born Pretty Store

Hi there ! 
A while ago i received a package from Born Pretty Store , they sent me some items for review :) I had such busy weeks lately , so i'm finally ready with my post ....
Born Pretty Store is well known for their affordable items and especially for nail art supplies . They are located in Singapore , i believe .
I've ordered a few times from them too after i got the review package , so i'm able to give you more info about shipping time as well .
So i want to say a HUGE thank you to Bern Pretty Store for sending me these items ! I'm really happy :)

This is what i've gotten :

A gorgeous Chameleon nail polish
A sheet of hollow stickers
A baggy of flat Chameleon Rhinestones , size 2.4 mm
A nail art wheel of different sizes rhinestones , silver 
And a sheet with Cat water decals , black option 244

 So as i said i also have ordered a few things myself after i received this package . 
Shipping to Belgium was $3 .... really i never paid so little for shipping , this is absolutely amazing !
One day later i got my shipping notification and it took about 4 weeks to delivery . Items were very well packed in bubblewrapping and i received everything in excellent condition .
So you need some patience for the package to arrive , but i don't mind that :)
Everything on their shop is very affordable , the chameleon polishes are a bit more expensive but well worth the money ! These are now on sale btw :) , so grab your chance . $5.99 instead of $15.88
SALE END on 31st May !

So i did this mani with a couple things of the review package ! Hope you like it :)

Items i've used :

OPI nail envy base coat - not shown in picture
OPI nail polish mini A Grape Affair (LE Coca Cola Collection)
Essence nail polish 193 Best Dressed (not sure if this is still available)
Born Pretty Store Chameleon nail polish #33 - sent for review
Born Pretty Store squishy dual stamper  - purchased by me
Born Pretty Store Image plate - purchased by me
Born Pretty Store Nail wheel with different sizes of rhinestones - sent for review
Born Pretty Store Hollow Stickers - sent for review
United Beauty Gel Touch Top Coat - not shown in picture 

The BPS Chameleon nail polish shifts from Purple to teal and i also saw a bit of a pink tint to it . It has different sizes of green glitter . You need to apply this over a dark base color . The polish itself was smooth to apply and dried fairly quickly!

 These are very sticky , so make sure that your nail polish is completely dry before you apply these on your nails . The image looked pretty after i applied the polish , not as crisp as i wanted it , but it looked pretty .

 I'm currently testing this out ... It's a Top Coat that you apply on top of any nail polish and all you have to do , is cure it for 60 sec in a LED lamp and then remove the tacky layer .
Your polish should be flawless for 10 days ... 

 I primed the stamper by using acetone and cleaned the plate with acetone 
The image transfered very nicely on my stamper without any issues , i had crisp lines and transfered on my nails beautifully !

Beautiful variety of different shapes , rounds , bows , flowers , squares ..

How i did it :

1 applied 1 coat of OPI Nail Envy Base Coat 
I applied 2 coats of OPI nail polish A Grape Affair on my thumbs , pinks and indexfingers
I applied 2 coats of Essence nail polish Best Dressed on my middle and ringfingers
Then i applied the BPS hollow stickers with the flowers on the nails i've painted with the OPI color and applied one , fairly thick coat of the BPS Chameleon nail polis #33 and removed the stickers immediately .
I stamped with Moyou Stamping polish Key Lime on my middle and ringfinger and used the flowers from the BPS image plate , i stamped with a pressing motion .
After all this i let my nails dry completely for an hour .
I topped everything off with United Beauty Gel Touch and on the nails where i've applied the chameleon colored flowers , i placed some of the little round rhinestones from the nail art wheel.
Next i've cured it for 60 sec under my LED lamp.
I've applied a second coat of this Gel Touch Top Coat to seal in my rhinestones.
Cleanse with a Gel Cleanser !
