Queen of nails pink nail art kit

Hello and welcome to my blog,

Today I have a review of one of queen of nails new nail art kits! I was kindly sent the pink kit to review and I love it.

Here is a picture of the kit all together

The kit contains:

  • Pink glitter strands
  • Glitter dots
  • Pink rhombus glitter
  • Pink mylar glitter
  • 2 Polka dot bows
  • Pink nail netting
  • Pink glitter foil
  • Pink blossom water decal wraps

With the kit I created 4 different looks which I have to show to you today

The first look was created using the water decals. This was my first time using water decals and I found them really easy to use, all you have to do is cut the decal to the shape you want, remove the clear cover and submerge it in a glass of water for a few seconds, take it out and remove the picture from the backing. It is then ready to apply to the nail.

The second look I created using the glitter foil. This is my favourite look of all of them. Again this was my first time using foils and I was surprised how easy it was to do. All I did was apply the base colour, allowed it to dry then applied a layer of base coat onto the nails that I wanted foil on, once the basecoat was tacky I scratched sections of the foil onto areas of my nails that I wanted and it was that easy.

The third look was created by using the glitter dots, I used a dotting tool to place glitter pieces on my nails and it is as easy as that.

The third and final look was created by used the netting. Again something I has never used before. To use this I stretched some of the net on my nail art mat and held it down with tape, I then sponged polish over it to create a decal on the mat which I then applied to my nail.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this and have learnt how to use some of these items. Overall I really enjoyed using this kit. It has so many different options and you can create so many different designs with it.

July 2017 Nail art collabs

This month I took part in 3 nail art collabs on my Instagram @myrealnails so I thought I would do a blog post about them.

The first one I took part in was on the 2nd of July and it was a cancer awareness collab hosted by Chloe – @tippedoffnails

126  people took part in this collab which is the biggest collab I’ve ever taken part in. For this one we could use any colour and it had to contain a cancer ribbon.

For my contribution I used W7 “pink feathers” which is the pink glitter and I used OPI “let’s be friends!” which is the pale pink base for the accent nail.

The second collab I took part in which was on the 11th of July was hosted by Teju @amritkarteju and Dani @creatively_danielle which was a tribute to very talented nail artist called Ane Li who sadly past on the 11th of July 2016. For this collab we had to recreate one of Ane Li’s nail art designs.

I found it really hard to decide which design of hers to recreate as she created so many gorgeous nail art designs. For this I used models own “Asscher blue”, Primark “optic” and Sally Hansen “Buffalo nickel”. I created this design using striping tape and a dotting tool.

The final collab I took part in was for @thepolishlist Vicky’s birthday which was hosted by Bethany @bnailedtoperfection. The theme for this was pink as it is Vicky’s favourite colour.

I used Nails inc “Notting hill gate” for the base of this and then used OPI “Never have too mani friends” for the cat. I then decided to add Barry M’s matte top coat to finish it off.

Those are all the collabs I took part in this month. I don’t normally do much nail art but I really enjoyed doing all of these so I’m hoping to start doing nail art more often.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
