Cath Kidston Inspired Water Decal Nail-Art ~ BornPretty*



Step by Step and review of
BornPretty Water Nail-decals


Hello there beauties! Hope you're all having a great week! I was contacted by BornPretty, a company which sells a wide range of products from nail art to Home and garden wear; To review their water nail-decals for you all. Of course as a adorer of nail art I happily accepted the opportunity and will show you step by step on how to use these decals and create a look inspired by the prints of Cath Kidston.


Water nail-decal application step by step

1- Firstly I chose my base varnish, for this look I used MAC's Glamour Daze - In the Limelight, which is a cool toned mint shade with a cream finish. I applied this to the nail and allowed it to dry evenly, I found two coats left a even base cover to apply the decals onto.



2-  After the varnish was dry, I then removed the nail decal sheet from the packaging, ensuring then I had a small sized dish to place in cool water which will be used for the application.


3- I then used a pair of scissors to cut out the desired parts that I would be using for the nail. In this case I cut out two of the patterns, one large and the other was smaller. I then peeled off the sheet and carefully dipped the first pattern into the small dish of water for around 10-15 seconds.




4-  After the decal is moistened I placed the patterned side onto the nail, which resulted to the paper backing to easily glide off which can then be disposed, leaving the pattern on the nail and to then lightly dab the excess water off with a paper towel.


5- Repeat the same process with the smaller decal ensuring all water has been absorbed from application of the nail.


6- Once you're happy with the decal's position and it has been patted dry, the last step is to seal in the design using a top coat varnish! Allow for it to fully dry and then the final look is complete.

I found using these decals very simple and such an easy go-to product whenever you want something quick and effective. At the affordable price with a wide arrange of designs and colours, BornPretty will keep you on-top of the nail trends every season.
Delivery of the product was quick and sent within simple packaging with no breakages or complications. I would highly recommend this website to anyone and if you like these step by step posts then do let me know within the comments section for more of them to come!

Crafted Elegance - Accessories by Lola Joseph - First Look and Review*



Accessories Review
Lola Joseph

This is a perfect way to introduce the August month here on UniqueLoveStyle; Accessories to me are a key essential to any outfit, whether its a handbag or a statement necklace it provides edge but also creativeness. When I came across Lola Joseph on Twitter looking for bloggers to try some of their accessories, I jumped to the opportunity! To be chosen was an honor and a privilege; The customer service was second to none and when it arrived in the post I was blown away with the way everything had been packed. It felt a lot like Christmas!



 Within the contents there was a business card along with an informative letter about the company and the products which were sent to review. Lola Joseph is an online business that launched the 12th of May this year (2014) and sells a variety of accessories from as little as 80p. The box was packed and tapped with deco-den tape which was such a lovely touch to it, and then the inside was lined with shredded tissue paper that was lightly scented which complimented the overall un-boxing experience. The brand's concept brings ethnic inspired pieces to the mainstream fashion culture we have today, making each piece unique and carefully selected by their team who travels the world to hunt down the best jewellery trends for affordable prices.



Focusing on the item's packaging the presentation is superb. Instead of receiving the products in a regular plastic packaging, these soft personal drawstring bags held each piece which was a professional touch and ideal for re-use!

------------------------------------------------

Coffee Lace Pearl Bangles 


These bangles are by far one of my favourites overall, the idea of having a set which can be worn all together or separated to go with different looks can be very handy. I love how unusual the lace bangle is, it reminds me of a bohemian style that would go very well this summer with a maxi dress or a long skirt. The colours compliment as a set with the coffee and gold and at a price of £4.95 it's a perfect multi-purpose treat for many outfit choices.



------------------------------------------------

Classic Cat Ear Ring & Double Ring With Chains


Within the next drawstring bag I was delighted to see two rings both in a rustic gold metal shade and different to anything I usually wear. That cat ear ring is simply adorable, I've seen these style of rings recently and feel they bring quirkiness and an element of fun to any outfit. The double finger ring is completely edgy; it's designed with ability to move your fingers freely when worn and the fine hanging chains is a chic touch that has had many compliments upon when wearing it! It's been an experiment for myself to wear this type of jewellery because I've felt very limited with having slender fingers; but you will be expecting to see more in my future outfit posts with these beauties!

Feather Earring Cuff


Ear cuffs have been on trend a lot when it comes to jewellery and this one from Lola Joseph is gorgeous. There is a choice to have the cuff in either gold or platinum but I'm actually enjoying this running theme of gold and the texturing of the feather is detailed and beautiful, I do also like the added delicate chain as it adds to the unique effect when worn. For the price of just £1.95 It is perfect to include to a growing collection!


------------------------------------------------

Blue Polka Dot Handbag





I couldn't contain my excitement when I opened the final larger drawstring bag to look within and see... a cute polka dot shoulder bag with a clasp! I was shocked how much you can place in the bag, it's spacious with pockets and zipped compartments which are easy to open and close including the magnetic clasp which keeps the bag to. This bag can also be selected in a red shade too which reminds me very much of a ladybird print! The material of the bag is weather resistant which can be idealistic when unexpected showers arise. I've had many ask me already about this bag when I've been out and about I've worn it with many outfits and to many places which shows how versatile it is.

Overall I'm highly impressed with the quality and selection from Lola Joseph and I hope that this look into some of their wears intrigues you too! Also you can catch Free shipping if you spend over £30 and for a limited time there will be a free piece of jewellery included in every order.
