KKCenterHk Review: Fuzzy Stickers

Hey everyone! I have the last product sent to me from KKCenterHk. They are these adorable chanel/ french tip pink stickers!

I did do these on my mom because her nails are wider and the sticker were too big for mine.  Also she's not really into the whole nail/blog thing so she didn't let me take very good pictures. Which is a shame because if she took care of her nails, she would have gorgeous long nails! Well, enough ranting about her lol.

 My thoughts:
-I liked that they have two shapes: square and oval.
-I obviously love that they are fuzzy/fluffy
-They aren't sticky like regular nail stickers. These are like those stickers you use on windows.
-Since they weren't sticking very good , I ended applying a top coat.
-I wish they came in more sizes.

Overall, they are ok. I couldn't really get them to stick and they didn't fit well but they are cute!

Funky Fingers: Atomic Poppy

Hey everyone! A couple of weeks ago while I was out picking out the prizes for my giveaway, I saw this lovely color and decided to give it a try! Enjoy!

Atomic Poppy is a neon orange creme. The color reminds me of nacho cheese mixed with the color of a pumpkin. It is fully opaque in 3 coats and dries matte. The formula is a bit runny but it's not too hard to work with. I personally love it, well actually I love ALL neons!

KKCenterHk Review: Image Plate, Scraper & Stamper

Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far! I have been meaning to do this post for such a long time but here it is! Enjoy!

*Image Plate: N.NAIL Stamping Image Stamp Template Plate SPPMB26 

My thoughts:
-The plate does not having a backing so it is sharp
-As you can see from the picture above the polish does not get distributed onto the image
-I tried it with both the original scraper and the one they sent me, both scrapers did not work on this
-Overall, this plate did not work at all for me. I tried every image and different polishes. Not sure if I got one that doesn't work

*Stamper & Scraper

My thoughts:
-I loved these two!
-The scraper has a plastic edge instead of the metal konad one. I really liked this because it doesn't scrape the image plates!
-The only downside to the scraper is that you have to apply a bit more pressure to make sure you scrape the excess polish off
-The stamper is in my opinion an exact dupe to a konad one. It picks up the images perfectly and stamps amazingly too!

Chevron Tutorial w/ Scotch Tape

Hey everyone! So one of the entries for my 100 Follower Giveaway, I asked you all what are some tutorials or manis you would like me to do!

Rainbowify Me asked for a scotch tape mani and Ashely and Marissa asked for a chevron tutorial. I recently saw this video that combines the two ideas together so I  thought I would give it a shot! Enjoy!

1. Start by applying your first color of choice

2. Optional: Apply fast drying top coat

3. Take a piece of scotch tape and place one of the corners close to the end of you nail
4. Apply color of choice & remove tape

5.Optional: Apply fast drying top coat
 -Seche Vite

6. Tape off the second polish you applied
7. Take another piece of tape and take a corner and place it near the cuticle
*Only the middle should be left un-taped
8. Apply 3rd color of choice & remove tape carefully
 -Sally Hansen: White On

Sally Hansen: Pacific Blue Swatch

Hey everyone! I've heard a lot of youtubers rave about this polish and that it's hard to find. I found it easily at Walgreen though and decided to try it out! Enjoy!

*Enter my 100 Follower Giveaway! 

Pacific Blue is a super vibrant blue creme. It is completely opaque in 2 coats and has a great formula. At first I didn't like this but when I stepped outside, I fell in love. This polish is so vibrant that it almost "glows" if that makes sense. My pictures don't do it any justice!

Gradient Challenge: Day 5 & 6

Hey everyone! I can't believe tomorrow will be the last day of the challenge Kelly (Nailpocalypse) and I are doing!

 I was not able to post yesterday since the power went out. Have any of you been having horrible storms?

So for Day 5: Watermarble, I tried like 3 times and I couldn't get the polish to spread. So I gave up on the third time. Excuse my messy cuticles, I sat there for 10 minutes trying to remove all the excess polish but it wouldn't come off. So here it is, definitely not my best work!

*If you missed Kelly's water marble, don't forget to check it out!

-China Glaze: Frostbite
-Sally Hansen: Mint Sorbet

For day 6: Any Color, I decided to do my favorite color combo for gradients! Yellow, orange, and pink. I think they go so well together! Enjoy!

* Check out Kelly's awesome gradient for Day 6

-Sally Hansen: Mellow Yellow
-Zoya: Arizona
-Sally Hansen: Presto Pink
Stay tuned tomorrow for some glitter gradients from Kelly and I!

Gradient Challenge: Day 2: Yellow

Hello lovelies! Today is the second day of the Gradient Challenge Kelly (Nailpocalypse) and I are doing this week! Since the theme is yellow I tried doing a yellow gradient and black stamping to make it look like a bee. However, it ended up looking horrible and started over.

Soo this is the outcome. I'm not sure how I feel about it but I didn't feel like trying a third time. I'm sure Kelly came up with something super awesome so don't for forget to check out what she did for Day 2: Yellow!
