Diary of a Toy Killer: Flying Tiger Chicken

I promised I'd be back with more Diary of a Toy Killer posts, so here we are! Dad went to Bath on a shopping trip and went into a store called Tiger (Flying Tiger but for some reason only has Tiger on the storefront) It's a cool shop with really colourful knick knacks and stationery for really good prices. Anyway he found this fun toy for me and I set about destroying it immediately.

Toy: Blue Glow in the Dark Chicken
Price: £1 from Flying Tiger
Squeaker: One of those tubes that make the weird duck noise when air is pushed into it
Time it took to destroy: 2 hours to put a hole in it so the squeaker didn't work, 27 hours to rip at the neck completely
Level of Destruction: Headless

Espionage Cosmetics Veiled Paradise

OK, I know a lot of you will have really loved the weather these last few days but I have not. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only thing the bright, hot, sunny days are good for, is hanging out the washing. I am honestly looking forward to the rain coming agai but then, I have never been a fan of the heat and MS has made my dislike much stronger.

BUT, that doesn't mean I am not a fan of sandy beaches, the sound of crashing waves and the cool sea breeze. My favourite beach to go to is Dawlish, I think it's beautiful and have had some of my favourite times there.

Anyway, these Veiled Paradise wraps from the March Hidden Treasures round of NEXUS really caught my eye today, especially the wraps on my thumb and index finger, my gawd it's such gorgeous detailing. And, these wraps won the vote too so they're available to buy now, pop over here to grab these beauties.

While you're at it, don't forget to pop over to the presale to check out the massive pile of awesome and don't forget to use code PLUS10KAPOW on your basket of preciouses, and you can get 15% off an order of $25 or more (once per customer). Treat yourself, you deserve it!

And right as I was writing this post, we got a lovely thunderstorm, I'm in my happy place :)

Have a great night!

Loot Crate: Playback

Yup, super late posting this again but in my defence I had already uploaded the photos, they've just been sitting in my drafts folder for 2 weeks. The March crate was not half bad and I really liked what was in it so I thought it was still worth posting.

Loot crate have changed things up again in the way that they deliver information about the products. There is no magazine anymore, we are back to a card with just the bare minimum info and there is no theme art on it. Hopefully they decide to include some theme art again in the near future because I really like the art they come up with. I have been begging for them to include the theme art as a poster or print each month for ages, so fingers crossed.

So let's jump in for a closer look then.

Feeling a little blue!

I have been feeling a little blue recently, as in, blue has been present in most of my nail polish and nail art choices lately and I have really been feeling it. Today's nail art is to show off this gorgeous blue holo nail polish from Beauty Big Bang.

This polish is from their holo range (you can see my other swatches here), it looks best with 2 coats and just like the others in the range, it has a super strong, linear holo. It dries fast to a semi-matte finish, is easy to clean up and remove and does not stain. Photo shows 2 coats with a coat of Seche Vite.

Items used for nail art: Moyou London Comics 06 stamping plate, Moyou London Black Knight, Barry M Blue Moon, Barry M Malibu, Barry M Blue Grape, Barry M Dead Heat and Colors By Llarowe Turq'd.

I used the reverse stamping method to fill in the image from Moyou Comics 06 plate, then applied to the nail and coated with a coat of Seche Vite.

You can find this beaut of a holo here for £3.83/$5.49 or as part of the 6 colour holo set for £20.93/$29.99 and don't forget that you can use code PLUS10 for 10% of your order.

Espionage Cosmetics Nostalgic Nightmare

Starting the week off with some fun and bright nails courtesy of Espionage Cosmetics Nostalgic Nightmare because in real life stuff I have been dealing with a vomiting child which is no fun at all.

These wraps have unicorns, rainbow hearts and pandas but with the added twist of knives, saw blades, blood and poop! In a weird way, these kind of make me think of Deadpool and I think that Deadpool might, sort of, think these are awesome too!

The bonus is that these wraps are available to buy right now, pop here because you know full well that you are going to, nay NEED TO rock these! Also check out the rest of the shop, including the presale which has some awesome wraps and has been extended and don't forget to use code PLUS10KAPOW for 15% off an order of $25 or more (once per customer)
Stay awesome!
