The Armani AX Exchange logo appears at the 12 o'clock position.The metallic-tone IP (Ion Plated) stainless steel bracelet fastens with a deployment clasp.

My thoughts
I absolutely love this watch!! when I first seen the watch online I knew it would look just as stunning if not even more so worn on the wrist.
I was very impressed with the packaging it arrived very safe and in a sturdy box.
Covered in plastic to protect the steel and the watch face.I removed these straight away to try the watch on!
To my surprise I thought I would have needed the strap adjusting but when I opened the clasp and slipped it on to my wrist it fitted me perfectly!
I love the Gold tone as I have a Guess watch in Silver tone and I don't have a gold tone watch so this is a real treat for me and something I have wanted for a while.
The watch is very classy and elegant featuring a matte quilted dial with 26 clear stones detailing each cross over.

The crystals also circle around the face giving this beautiful stylish watch some bling which I love!
The watch feels very comfortable on the wrist and not to heavy which is a plus for me as I find my Guess watch can get heavy during the day.
I also like the fact the watch is water resistance to 50m as this is piece of mind if you get water splashed on the watch if washing dishes! I personally would not wear the watch for swimming however it would be safe to do so at 50m or less. 
When the watch gets a little dirty I simply give it a wipe with a soft damp cloth and dry carefully.
I fell in love with this watch and the look of the Swarovsk crystals details. And for accessories that need to be super versatile - you can't go wrong with a Gold tone watch! Gold practically goes with a lot of thingsand for style well you can't go wrong with an Armani Exchange Ladies Watch!

ChrisElli currently has a wide selection of watches to sunglasses, from bags to belts at great prices take alook HERE.
I want to say a huge thank you to Danny for sending me this beautiful watch for review.
As always Thanks for stopping by please follow my blog if you haven't already Thank you :)

  • Pink sky- Return of the Randoms collection.
  • Be right back- Halloween Scream collection.

  • TarasTalons in Tiger Lily.
  • Hazy- Return of the Randoms collection
  • Pink sky- Return of the Randoms collection
  • beautyuk polishes in Black out and White out.
  • Dotting tool.
with flash

The first thing I done was start with a base coat so I used the Sugary sweet polish on the pointer finger and ring and little finger. and the Tiger lily polish on the thumb and middle finger.
I then used the Black polish with a nailart brush and painted the branches I took the Sugary sweet and used the dotting tool make the blossom flowers over the branches then dotted some black for the centre of the flowers.

I then painted over the pointer finger and little finger using Hazy a pretty matte topcoat with speckles and lovely glittery sparkles!
This would look great over any polishes. I chosen the pink shade and gave the pointer 2 coats the little finger I gave it 3 coats.the polish dries super fast so you have to work quick. I then dabbed a little on the nail tip on the middle finger.I love the fact it is a matte top coat with sparkles!

The ring finger I used the Pink sky polish is a gorgeous pretty girly pink of starry glitter and sparkles!this has a slight matte effect and is super fast drying I gave it 2 coats also.I dabbed some also on the thumb nail tip. as you can see the polish has a pink shade to it.just gorgeous!

Last up is one of my favs the Scream collection nailart!!
So for this collection I decided to go with the theme and do the Scream face mask from the hit movie!

Here is the list of items I used.
  • B&M neon polish in Blue.
  • Red nailart pen.
  • Not in my movie- Halloween Scream collection.
  • Be right back- Halloween Scream collection.
  • Acrylic paints in black and white.
  • Small nailart brush (not pictured)

I started by using the B&M polish as a base on the thumb and pointer and little finger.
I then went over the fingers using the Not in my movie- Halloween Scream collection. it is a wonderful sheer Royal blue shade with gorgeous sparkles! I gave it 2 coats of polish and I found this polish to dry fast also which is a bonus!
On the middle and ring finger I painted the nails using the Be right back- Halloween Scream a matte mushy pea green polish with speckles of glitter. dried fast also and I gave it 2 coats.
I then did a few bloody stripes across the middle finger nail using the Red nailart pen.
The thumb I freehand painted the mask/face using Acrylic paints in black and white.

All of Tara's polishes I have found to be of a high standard of quality that you would get from the high street but these are handmade and excellent value for money!

BornPrettyStore review/Nailart

Hi friends

I had a busy weekend! hope you all had a lovely weekend?
I was contacted by BornPrettyStore to do some more product reviews/nailart.

I was sent 3 items to review.

350Pcs/Box 2mm-5mm Delicate Water Dropping Heart Design Rhinestone 3D Nail Art Decoration.

Born Pretty Holographic Holo Glitter Nail Polish Varnish Hologram Effect 4#. 

350pcs Candy Fluorescent Light Color Round Square Mix Stud Rhinestones Nail Art Decoration W/Box.

The 2 nailart designs I decided to do are very easy and simple to do.The first nailart is with using the 350Pcs/Box 2mm-5mm Delicate Water Dropping Heart Design Rhinestone 3D Nail Art Decoration.

 Items used to creat the first nailart is listed below.
  • Beautyuk polishes in Blackout and White out.
  • make-up sponge(not pictured)
  • The colour experts nail polish in Splendor.
  • Beautyuk ultra gloss top coat.
  • 350Pcs/Box 2mm-5mm Delicate Water Dropping Heart Design Rhinestone 3D Nail Art Decoration.

I started with a white base on all nails then I took a make-up sponge and painted half white half black on the sponge then dabbed onto each nail and I repeated this step about 3 times.
I then gave it a quick top coat to blend the colours more.
I then stuck on the rhinestones and made a simple flower pattern with them on each nail.
The little finger I used the Splendor glitter polish and stuck some rhinestones on to finish the look.gave them all another gloss top coat and it is finished.
I found the rhinestones easy to use and vary in size and you get alot in the wheel to do many more different kinds of nailart.Great for a more elegant design or even glam up a boring polish with these pretty rhinestones.

The last nailart design is a more fun summery look.

  • Born Pretty Holographic Holo Glitter Nail Polish Varnish Hologram Effect 4#.
  • Beautyuk ultra gloss top coat.
  • Moyra vivid sands polish in Green light.
  • 350pcs Candy Fluorescent Light Color Round Square Mix Stud Rhinestones Nail Art Decoration.

I started this nailart with applying at least 3 coats of the Born Pretty Holographic Holo Glitter Nail Polish on the thumb middle and little finger.I found it applies well with a good brush and the holo effect is fabulous!
I then applied 2 coats of the Moyra green polish.on the pointer and ring finger.
while tacky I then stuck on various studs from the  350pcs Candy Fluorescent Light Color Round Square Mix Stud Rhinestones Nail Art Decoration. these studs are easy to use and you get lots to play with! these are fun and great for any nailart to liven it up! give your nails a party!
I then gave it a top coat and it is all done.

I want to also say Thank you again to BornPrettyStore for sending me some fabulous products to review!
I highly recommend the company and there products

I hope you enjoyed my BornPrettyStore nailart/review.

Rose nailart.

Hi friends

Sorry I have not posted this week I have been unwell again but I am now feeling much better and wanted to post this nailart I did.
I thought I would do a bold rose flower outlined in black as I have seen this pattern on  a cushion cover.

Items used are pictured below.

  • Beautyuk polishes in White out. and in Coral burst.
  • Barry M paint polish in Diamond glitter.
  • marker pens in black and green.
  • Beautyuk 5in1 base and top coat (not pictured)

I started with the White out polish as a base on all the nails. then I took the marker pen in black and hand drawn the roses/petals/stems I then filled in the green parts using the marker and then I went over the roses with the coral burst polish. when dry I went back over the black to make it stand out more I used the glitter polish on the middle finger and little finger.gave it all a top coat and all done.
I am not sure if I actually like this mani now hehe but here it is anyway :)

Thanks for reading and if you haven't followed me please do.
Have a great weekend! more posts coming up shortly

Bye for now.
