KKCenterHK 2.5mm Pink Pearl Pink Circle Glitter Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend and a great start to the week so far!

Today I'm sharing a fun Mani I did over the long weekend with the Pale Pink Circle Glitter from the KKCentreHK store. ♥ This glitter is so fun and versatile , the options you can use this babies for is endless... And you get a nice amount of glitter for the price too !

So let me share the design I did with these fun circle glitter from the KKCentreHK site -
I loved the look of these colours together, and the circle glitters added such an unique element to the mani design. ♥They are super easy to work with, and they have lasting power. These glitters stayed on until I took this mani off ♥

For this mani I used two Revlon colours - Revlon Cafe Pink (the lighter pink ) and taped of another section to use with Revlon Passionate Pink . I them just waited for my top coat to dry a bit before gently using an orange stick to pick up these glitters one by one and position them into place. ♥ These glitter lies pretty flat against the nail, another bonus. And KKCenterHK delivers worldwide. ♥

I'm also taking a small blogging break for a few days, I'm out of town for a bit, but will be back next week Thursday with a very special mani . ♥

* These products  was send to me for review ,  but this is my honest opinion on the products send *

Really gorgeous !!

I wanted to try something new too, I always love Marta from Chit Chat Nails glitter tip mani's... And REALLY wanted to try this look too. I sponged my tips with China Glaze Glitter All the Way ..

Sally Hansen : Hot Magenta

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having an awesome week so far . I'm glad it FINALLY feels a little like winter now... Loving the cold weather for a change. ♥

Today I'm showing you a gorgeous magenta colour from Sally Hansen called Hot Magenta. This is a bold hot pink (magenta ) colour with a gorgeous shimmer .  I love how this colour just reminds me of all things pink (and I do love me some pink ♥) Formula wise this was really fantastic too, the coats applied so smoothly and I love how this colour just looked like it glowed. ♥

I used three coats of Sally Hansen Hot Magenta in the photos below -

What are your thoughts on this colour ? Love pink just like I do ??

China Glaze - Split Perso-Nail-Ity

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a nice weekend... Mine wasn't the best of weekends, but hoping this week turns out to be a little less hectic.

Today I'm showing you an awesome China Glaze polish again . This time it's Split-Perso-Nail-Ity from the China Glaze Tranzitions range. This range is soooo cool ! The main colour is how it looks in the bottle, then , when you apply top coat, it magically transforms into a fun colour. This range was bought out to simplify nail art for beginners, but I still had tons of fun creating a fun dotty look to show you guys.

I started of with two coats of Split-Perso-Nail-Ity. Then on the ring finger I applied top coat. I then dotted with some top coat on the other nails for the darker dots. And then dotted some Split-Perso-Nail-Ity on the ring finger as accent. And rounded it off with a cute silver rhinestone.

So let me share this dotty look with you -
I really love how this is two polishes in one... I cant even explain how much I love this manicure.. Although next time I will use another top coat instead of Seche Vite, since it did make some of the dots shrink a little bit, but nothing too serious. ♥

Do you love this dotty look as much as I do ?

Hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead !

Essence : Hello Marshmallow

Hi guys ! Hope the week treated you all well. I'm just super glad it's finally weekend. This has really been a tough week for me.

Today I'm showing you a lovely lavender colour from Essence called Hello Marshmallow. First off... I have to admit I wasn't the biggest fan of the older Essence bottles but the new ones are soooo cute ! I just love them.

Now on to the colour and formula. I was very impressed. Two coats for an opaque finish , and the colour is just so girly and beautiful. I love pastel shades , and this colour is no exception.

So on to the photos -
This shade really applied without any problems, and the formula was flawless. It's really such a gorgeous girly colour ♥

Essence colours retail for R19,95 .. .So it's a bargain for such a gorgeous colour too . Essence can be bought from Clicks stores ♥

Anyone have any fun plans for this weekend ??

China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a fun week so far ! This has been a very busy week for me so far , hopefully things will start to calm down a little soon. ♥

Today I'm showing you China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I got this teeny tiny bottle from my aunt when they went to America last year , so these small bottles aren't available here. But its so super cute !

This is one of China Glaze most popular shades ! And I can see why. Usually reds feel too grown up for my liking to wear everyday ( I'm more of a pink and purple girl ) but this colour screams sophistication ! It's just that gorgeous. This is not your average red, the sparkly glitters makes this beauty the queen of the reds. ♥

Here's the pics of this beauty -
I REALLY love this colour, will be getting a big back up bottle soon too . Perfect for work, and just dressing up your jeans too.

Do you love red nail polish ??

Have a fantastic Wednesday !!!
