Bad Apple Red Delicious

My lovely friend Aysh sent me this beauty a while back and it's taken me this long to try it out oops! Bad Apple Cosmetics is a new brand for me that's not available here in Aus so I'm so lucky that I have such wonderful friends from overseas to help me get my hands on international lacquers.

The name Red Delicious says it all and it's a yummy pinky red creme. The formula is smooth and opaque and the brush has a medium firmness making it easy to apply. 2 coats is pictured.

Thank you Aysh for this beauty!

Cloud manicure

After swatching the I Scream Nails polishes I showed you yesterday, I had to do a bit of nail art with them. I love cloud manis as it’s sooooo simple to do you just can't go wrong!

I used 2 coats of I Scream Nails Blue Heaven* and a medium dotting tool to create clouds using Kester Black French White* and topped it off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat. My top coat dragged the design a little but real clouds are wispy so it works!

I Scream Nails polishes swatches and review

Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! Today is the first day of Autumn and as usual I like to buck the trend and go with some brights. I'm excited to show you 6 bright fun shades from I Scream Nails - if you haven't heard of them they are nail artists based in Melbourne and Sydney doing awesome freehand nail art.

I Scream Nails released 6 ice cream polishes late last year that are 5 free meaning they don’t contain Toluene, DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde or Formaldehyde Resin; are 100% vegan and made here right in Australia. I was so pleasantly surprised at the amazing formulas so read on for my swatches and review! Warning: this post is pic heavy.

The polishes come well packaged in cute ice cream themed boxes along with I Scream Nails stickers. The shape of the bottles is very familiar as they are pretty much identical to the Etude House polishes that were released a few years back. They seem difficult to use but are really easy to hold and use.

Bridal lace manicure

Some quick nail art today! This is a NOTD from last month from when I went to a friend’s wedding. As always I leave doing my nails for events until the very last minute which means I am always rushing so just went for something simple. I posted a snap of this mani on Instagram and Facebook already so you might have seen it before!

I used 2 coats of Hello Darling Cakefight (which is such an appropriately named wedding shade!) and stamped butterfly looking lace design from Moyou London Bridal collection plate 07 using Konad Special polish in black. Topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Thanks for looking!
