I've called this post "nail nail" although I'm thinking that that's not technically true as I did actually go up to Creative Academy Manchester to buy it and bring it back... Never mind! You get the gist!
In truth is nothing I bought was essential, however I had a hankering to get some fresh supplies whilst I was there doing my Perfect Polishing class. It's so easy to nip down on your lunch break and shop!
First on the list was MoYou London Fashionista Collection 07 stamping plate which was exactly what I've been after recently as I've wanted to do some stamping with beautiful damask prints. I have a feeling that I am going to be using this plate a lot as it prints beautifully and crisp.
Next up was a proper pack of Minx Coat. I had the trial pack which I review (click here to read it and watch the demonstration) Although I have the remainder of the trial pack left, I wanted to make sure I had a full pack of them ready for my clients.
I have been gradually building a collection of CND Vinylux as I love that the colours match my Shellac collection and the speed that it dries in. I bought Guilded Pleasure and Daring Escape just because I like the shades. I bought Overtly Onyx was due to me being told that it's amazing for nail stamping as the hints of shimmer show through the print.
It's becoming a running joke but I am currently obsessed with foils. I really want more designs and prints for my collection, I'm so keen for Lecente to bring more out! After hearing their Peacock foils being spoken about forever, I finally caved and bought it along with Oil Slick.
The one thing I never took to is CND Scentsations. I totally agree that they smell nice but ultimately they're a standard hand soap or hand lotion but with a slightly larger price tag. I decided to buy one to see if it changes my opinion - you have to try these things!
So that's all of my nail mail. Nothing too life changing but a few bits and pieces to add to my stash.
