Winterberry Nail Art Review - Part 1

 *Some products in this post were discounted in exchange for review.
Hi guys, recently I was contacted by the lovely Rachel from Winterberry Nail Art, to see if I would like to review a few items from her Etsy store.  She stocks a range of nail art supplies including some really cool 3D charms, and one of my favourite things ever - circle glitter!  How could I say no.........

These are the things I chose, and the cute little box that they came in - as you can see, I opted for pots for most things, but you can get them in a bag for a little less if you already have pots at home. 
Since I picked quite a few items, I will only be showing you the 2 circle glitters today.  I will do the rest in 2 or 3 more posts - that way you can see everything in action. (those blue-black rhinestones at the back are ah-maz-ing!)
 So first up are the gorgeous pink holo circles.  The base for this mani is Sinful Colors - Black on Black, and the stamping polish is Color Club - Miss Bliss.  The butterflies were stamped from MoYou Pro Collection 09.  For the accent nail, I just added a coat of clear polish, and placed the glitters on the nail with a wax pencil.  I used 2 coats of Gelous under my SV to smooth it right out - I have a habit of picking at things otherwise.
 It was really difficult to capture the intensity of the holo in a photo, but as you can see in this one, the face of the glitter is multifaceted, so it really twinkles in the light.
Then I did a different design with the silver ones.  This is actually the second time I have used the silver ones, I wore them on Christmas Day. Unfortunately, that was the mani I absent-mindedly doodled on with my Barry M Nail Art pen in the taxi ride home :p
The base for this mani was Revlon Scented - Bubble Gum, and as the name would suggest, it's a lot pinker in real life than it looks here.  The stupid yellow light bulb strikes again!  I will be showing you proper swatches of this when I have my daylight bulb.
 The heart image was also stamped from MoYou Pro Collection 09, with Barry M - Silver Foil.  Again, I used 2 coats of Gelous and 1 coat of SV to smooth it all out.  The silver glitters did seem to like to stick together in the pot, so I did need to spend a minute or 2 separating them.  The pink ones didn't do that at all though, and it wasn't too much of a hassle :)
The shop is currently closed for the holiday's, but will be opening back up on 1st January. 
ps. A pot of circle glitter, that will last for ages is only 85p - how cool is that?

*Rachel has kindly given me a discount code to share with you guys :)  Use the code PEPIPO15 at the checkout for 15% off all items, including sale items.
