Espionage Cosmetics Redrum

Is there any other carpet from any movie that is as famous as the carpet from the Overlook Hotel?

Every year I go through a list of my favourite horror/Halloween movies and pick out the ones that are appropriate for Kian to watch this year. The Shining is one of the ones on the list that I really want to watch with him but he is definitely not quite old enough for it yet! Although, if you ask him, he's not scared of anything at all and could watch any horror movie ever!

This pattern is pretty recognisable to most but even if you don't get the reference they still look really cool and retro.

They are a glossy wrap set but I added a coat of Barry M Matte topcoat.

Of course they glow in the dark too, with the spooky message of REDRUM and it looks fantastic.

I adore these wraps and if you do too, pop over here to grab some for yourself! Don't forget to use code PLUS10KAPOW to save 15% off an order of $25 or more!

What are some of your favourite movies for this time of year? I'm currently watching High Spirits, one of the best films ever!

Beauty Big Bang XL-020 Stamping Plate 

It's a fairly quick post today, fatigue has hit me pretty hard and I am just trying to get this post up before I am completely useless.

So today I have got the Beauty Big Bang XL-020 stamping plate to show you. This plate has 10 full size images and 7 small images. Again it has a great combination of stamps good for regular stamping and stamps good for reverse stamping.

All of the images picked up easily and well on the first go, the images are etched perfectly and I had no imperfections on my plate.

For this look I used Prism Polish Scaligero for the base. As soon as I saw this polish I knew it had to be used for something to do with a dragon. For the stamping I used Moyou Black Knight and for the eye I used Barry M Extravagant and I topped it with a coat of Seche Vite.

I love this look so much. I used a base of the gorgeous, autumnal Barry M Mustard and a coat of Barry M Fairy Lights (the 2018 Boots exclusive). I stamped using the paisley image and Moyou Black Knight , then I topped with a coat of Seche Vite.

You can find this plate here for £2.73/$3.59 and don't forget to use code PLUS10 for 10% off your Beauty Big Bang order.

Beauty Big Bang XL-018 Stamping Plate 

I do really like stamping plates that have larger full nail images but also a lot of them. The Beauty Big Bang XL-018 is one of those plates, it has 12 full nail images that are both pretty long and pretty wide, then there are 4 smaller images. Most of the images would be great for reverse stamping giving lots of different variations of nail art to do with this one. All of them are pretty cool skull images, perfect for Halloween and lovers of the gothic look.

For my first look I used the Beauty Big Bang Crystal Diamond polish in black and I stamped using Barry M Cotton and 2 of the images, one full size and one of the smaller ones.

I love how it looks over the textured polish and you can see how long the images are based on how I have placed the lace image on different nails.

For my second look I used 1 coat of Barry M Black Cherry and topped it with Wikkid Polish DeFlakingLicious. Then I reverse stamped the skull with roses for one nail and on the other I used the inverted tiny skulls with roses. I love how the flakies peep through this one.

I had absolutely no problems with this plate and had fantastic pickup straight away. The images are etched perfectly with a great selection, perfect for regular stamping and revers stamping! There were also no imperfections on this plate.

You can find this plate here for £2.72/$3.59 and don't forget to use code PLUS10 to save 10% on your Beauty Big Bang order.

Which is your favourite look from today?

Charlie's Nail Art Monster Mash Water Decals

I feel like I am permanently having one of those weeks. Just when I thought I was on track with things, it all starts slowly tumbling and it's all feeble attempts from me to keep up with it. I am definitely putting way too much pressure on myself but then I always do.

Also, when looking for easy nail art to do, water decals won't always be your friend! I completely melted a massive hole in one of them with the Seche and had to completely redo it and trying to get them in the right place when your arms have different ideas about what being still means.

But these Monster Mash full nail water decals from Charlie's Nail Art are both bright and Halloween appropriate!

Grab these decals here for 89p and don't forget to use code CLPK10 to save 10% off your Charlie's Nail Art order.

So who fully decorates their house for Halloween? I really want to have a Ghostbusters theme but I am struggling to get stuff I want/need for it both here in the UK and on a budget! Lemme see your Halloween decorations!

Espionage Cosmetics 13th Regeneration

What else would I be wearing this weekend?! These are the 13th Regeneration nail wraps from Espionage Cosmetics. They are a glossy wrap set based on the outfit of the new regeneration of Doctor Who and they have gorgeous teal glitter accents.

I decided to add a little something to these wraps and stamped Gallifreyan over the glitter using Moyou Geek 05 and Barry M Silver Foil and it looks gorgeous. That glitter wrap peeking through is so pretty.

And they glow in the dark too! As usual the glow is pretty strong and really stands out, especially when charged up.

These are available right now and you can grab them here, plus they are on sale right now too!!!
