I have had this polish for ages but have only just gotten around to trying to. It is called Fairy Dust Nails and is so gorgeous. I teamed it with a MUA pink polish and used two thin coats.
The best bit of all, it is easy to remove! Just like a normal polish, not like annoying glitter polishes. I think I may have just found one of my new favourite polishes and I want to make sure I use this colour loads this month.
For today’s Polish Days post I have used two new polishes and an oldie that I have brought back to vamp up my manicure a bit.
First up I used Essence Lets Get Lost which is a lovely teal blue colour. I used two thick coats on each nail. I then applied MUA’s nail constellations in Aquarius which I bought ages ago and still haven’t gotten around to try it. I have to say I’m impressed.
I finished off my manicure with some Barry M Black Crackle. My old bottle got all cloggy and gloopy after too much use. For Christmas however I received a new bottle and I have missed using that crackle effect in my manicures.
What do you think?
Was everyone as excited as me when MUA announced the launch of their furry nails? Yesterday I took the day to try out the fur effect and see how they would last as they look a bit too good to be true.
I followed the MUA tutorial online for how to apply the fur effect flocking powder to your nails but I came across a massive problem. The jar has a disperser inside and the instructions say to shake out the powder in the lid. After vigourous shaking the picture below shows how much ended up in the lid which is far right. I used my tweezers and bent them in the process and lifted out the inner sprinkler/disperser because I just couldn’t get the powder out. This then left me with a jar of powder which was more perfect for me to dip each finger in.
Here is how my nails looked after I had painted them with polish, dipped them in the powder. I waited around 30 seconds and brushed off the excess using a fan tail brush. As I was worried about them still being a bit wet I put a bit of moisturiser on a cotton wool pad and wiped around my fingers to remove the excess powder.
I applied them at about 11am and here is what I did in the day and you can figure out if they lasted quite well. I stupidly was wearing tights yesterday and I used these nails to pull my tights up and down – this I found really difficult. Later I changed into jeans and I found doing the zip up and down quite tricky too.
I went to meet some friends and when I parked my car I had to rummage for change – I was really worried that I would wreck my nails and I may have lost a bit of fur during rummaging for loose coins.
I was able to eat lunch, drink drinks and even go the toilet and wash my hands. I was quite careful drying them but in a couple of seconds they are fine.
I moved around a room, had a bit of a clear out, tidied into corners where there was dust. Dust got stuck to my nails! But clearing stuff and moving stuff did not damage my nails at all!
This morning I have had a shower and done dishes [I realised over night that I was being quite delicate with my nails yesterday and today have gone about quite normally] and they have lasted. Hardly any bits of fur are missing.
Here is a picture of my nails today.
There are certainly bits which are not as full as when I first applied them but considering the 24 hours I have had and the various things I have done I’m really really impressed by how well they have lasted! I can’t wait to try out the different colours.

I’m addicted to spots! This time I am doing the same manicure from a week ago but with pink shades.
Today I was inspired by a dice. Particularly the side of the dice that has the number three on. Here is my number three dice spot nail art.
After using MUA Shade 5 last week when I did the bow manicure I thought it was about time to use the lovely shade again. I bought some striping tape and this is the first time I have used it.
