Living In Luxury - Cool-toned bronze shade with foil finish. Living In Luxury is elegant pale bronze that I found really flattering. It looks quite understated and will be office friendly yet interesting. I've applied two coats for perfect coverage. The polish is we'll pigmented and it applied easily leaving no brush strokes.

Fit For Royals - pale gold with light coppery flakes and foil finish. This is undisputedly the most festive shade of all four for me and it fits perfectly with any Christmas or New Year's manicure. I'm wearing two coats which were fully opaque. The polish dried fast and with no brush strokes.

Adorned In Rubies - raspberry red foil with burnt orange flakes. This is a beautiful and rich colour which I can closest describe as raspberry shade. The fact that is has burnt orange flakes in it makes it a bit more interesting and it adds more depth. The formula was just perfect. Opaque in two coats, flawless application and no brush strokes. Adorned In Rubies is identical match to Gelish A Sunrise In The City.

Opportunity Knocks - mermaid blue foil with green flakes. This will be a perfect colour for summer and it reminds me of mermaids of course and of tropical seas. The colour is very vivid and sparkly and looks gorgeous. Two coats were fully opaque and again I had no problem with brush strokes. It applied well and dried fast but it can stain nails a bit so double up on base coat. Opportunity Knocks is identical match to Gelish Oocha Coocha.

All four shades had the same formula which was opaque in two coats and applied easily. They also dried fast without leaving visible brush strokes. I love each and every shade for different reasons so I really have no favourite in this case. I think this collection came out beautifully and if you love shiny foil finish polishes then you shouldn't skip on these.

 

All That Jazz Indulge Me Collection is available at All That Jazz UK website and at Nail Harmony UK website. I have previously swatched Spotlight Affair collection full of sultry creme shades, you can see it HERE.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

Pueen Cosmetics has launched new set of stamping plates called Buffet Leisure on 4th December 2014. I'm lucky enough to be able to review this set and show it to you.

 

The Buffet Leisure set features 24 fully-etched plates and an attractive plate holder. My plate holder came in pink colour but I've read there are some different colours available and are sent out randomly. I'm really glad the plate holder/case comes with them because I don't have to worry about storing and losing plates. The case keeps them safely stored together. Let's have a look at the case and plates:

I just couldn't get nice photos of the plates so I ended up scanning them so you could see all the pretty design you'll get in this set. There are some geometric, floral, abstract and themed designs. I find it to be a nice variety. All plates are nicely etched and after removing the blue protective foil and inspecting them I didn't find any etching problems.

 

Pueen Says:

"Each plate measures about 1.8" (5.5cm in diameter) with sanded edges for easy, comfortable handling and a protective nylon screen. All image plates are made from high grade stainless steel and are paper backed to prevent scratching during storage.

 

We call this STAMPING BUFFET as you may stamp where ever you like! We call this ALL YOU CAN STAMP as you will create infinite designs with your imagination! This set brings a totally new concept of the stamping nail arts. While each plate is fully etched, the idea of Stamping Buffet is coming from where you may stamp where ever on the plate as you like. This will allow our plates to create infinite designs with your imaginations."

 

Here are couple of examples of designs stamped on nails:

The plates I've tried so far (I've tried more that these two designs) stamped very well and they appear to be nicely done and good quality. I really like the protective paper back and the fact that they don't have sharp edges.

 

Pueen Buffet Leisure Stamping Set is available at their website for $20.99.

 

Hope you've enjoyed today's review and have a lovely day! Lucie x
