The One Nail Queen Guest Post - Nail Art Essentials

Hey guys. I have another guest post for you today and this one is by my all time nail bestie, Sam! t was actually Sam that first introduced me to the likes of Uber Chic and created the stamping monster that I am today haha! I hope you enjoy Sam's awesome post about her favourite nail art essentials.


Hello all!  Wow, I’m not used to such a big audience (*loosens collar*) so if you don’t know me, that’s cool!  My name is Sam AKA @theonenailqueen in London (more Instagrammer than blogger), and the lovely Beth has asked me to write a post whilst she get back into blogging after her holiday.
I thought I’d write something that fellow nail art lovers might find useful if you’re starting out in the vast and ever expanding world of nail art!  I’m a massive fan of stamping primarily, but I also enjoy the odd holo pigment, so let’s get going…


UNT Peel Off Base Coat
This stuff is a life saver!  If you change your polish a lot, this will make things sooooo much easier for you!  To get my polish off when I use this, I loosen the polish with some oil ( I don’t tend to use oil when I’m wearing UNT because it can activate the undesired effect of your polish popping off!).  Once you’ve rubbed a generous amount of oil around the base of your nail, I use an orange wood stick (or another nail…naughty) to pop it off!  Et voila!
I find it lasts the longest with thin coats of polish, so gradients last well; my thick smooshy manis and glitter polishes, not so much.  Another great thing is that you can use this as a base if you’re using gel polish with say pigments, or glitters, and it peels off in the same way!  I often give my nails a wipe with some polish remover after removing UNT just to get rid of any residue before the next mani.

Miss_Sock Guest Post - Space Unicorn


Hey guys! So I was on holiday last week but you won't have known as I scheduled my posts to publish while I was away :) Normally people have guest posts while they are away but I did it a bit differently. This week I have two guest post while I get back into the swing of things after my lovely holiday to Tenerife, but more on that soon! Today's post is by the lovely Jen from Miss_Sock.

Hi guys, Sock here!
So the lovely Bethany kindly invited me to guest post on her blog and of course I jumped at the chance!  I wanted to do something fun, but living up to all the wonderful designs that Bethany has created – so I settled on these super cute watermarbled and reverse stamped Space Unicorn nails!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Dotting tools, not just dots!


Oh my word...this has got to be one of the worst manis I have done haha! Today's prompt for 26 Great Nail Art Ideas was dotting tools, not just dots! I don't like dotting tools as I don't really use them for actual nail art. They are great for picking up things like studs etc but for actually nail art...not for me.

Meebox - Birds of Paradise - Swatches and review


Hey guys! Today's post is a really exciting one for me. The lovely ladies at Meebox recently asked me if I would like to join their team and become their third ambassador! OH M GEEEE! I was super excited and so honoured! It's coming up to their second birthday and I remember reviewing their first box. They have done so well in the past two years and everyone who tries this subscription box just loves it!

This months theme is Birds Of Paradise which as you can guess it has a more tropical feel. The box contains three polishes, one of which is a stamping polish, a stamping plate, stamper and a nail polish corrector.

Unless you live under a rock, you must have heard that Twinkled T have started selling their own stamping polishes! I saw Twi-Star do a swatch video and commented on how awesome they looked and then next thing you know..I had an email from Twinkled T! I was so honoured that they had asked if I would like to review these polishes so of course I had to say yes. They also sent me other items such as clean up brush, dotting tools, XL Clear stamper and the Glamour Mat. I've not had a chance to use the other items just but I'll be using them soon!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Sunshine


Today's post is a hard one to write but I feel I need to do it. This week's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge is Sunshine and I had this idea right from the start around a year ago when the themes were first announced. My Gran and Gar always called me their Sunshine, mainly my Gran, and she would sing this song to me when I was little. I even have an Elephant teddy that used to hum the tune. I wore it out so much my Gar fixed it a few times it but it broke a long time ago. This Monday he passed away unexpectedly and we are all so heartbroken.
