I used to be obsessed with nail art, but I had a really long break from nail polish for some reason so this is my first attempt at something more interesting in ages :) I was recently contacted by Dazzling Nails who kindly sent me some of their nail polishes to try out and asked to share my honest opinion. I also gave one of their simple tutorials a go.
The kit I received is the Dazzling Nails Stunning Collection* and it is currently reduced from £15.00 to only £12.00 with free delivery. It comes with 3 nail colours (Black Magic, Gold Queen and Milk ChocoLatte), a brush, a dotting tool, 2 sponges and a little jar of Swarovski crystals.
Each bottle contains 10ml of nail polish and I must admit - I am pleasantly surprised with the quality! The formula is easy to apply, it dries quickly and I can get away with just one coat for an opaque finish! The only thing I would change slightly is the brush, as I would prefer it a bit softer, but overall, I can't believe how good the nail polishes are. They also lasted on my nails really well - 3 days with very minimal chipping.
The tools are actually really lovely with marble effect allover. Very on-trend!
And how cute is this little jar? :)
The sponges feature marble effect too. Nice touch.
As you can see, all three shades are super pigmented. Gold Queen is a stunning metallic gold, Milk ChocoLatte is a dark brown and Black Magic is jet black.
The kit also comes with a couple of step-by-step nail art guides to give you some inspiration. You can wear the colours on their own though. It's up to you. I tried the leopard print option and it is very, very simple (see the instructions above, or watch my video).
The final result. It's not perfect, but leopard print looks lovely even when it is a bit messy :)
And here is the video tutorial:
Have you ever tried a freehand leopard print manicure?
