Matte Stamping Nail Art

Hi lovelies,

Today I have a matte look to share with you.matte stamping 0815I started with two coats of Nympho by Cirque. Once that was dry I used a piece of saran wrap to apply tiny bits of Lean, also by Cirque. The stamping design is created with MoYou ProXL plate 20 and Mundo de Unas stamping polish in white. For top coat I used a matte top coat by Wet n Wildmatte stamping 0815 1

Crowstoes: Last Rat Standing

Hi beauties,

Quite some time hast past since I did a swap with my friend Nailluminati. A few polishes are still sitting quietly in my untried box. One of them is Last Rat Standing by Crowstoescrowstoes - last rat standing1Who said brown and grey are boring? This grey-isch brown has lots of fine multi colored shimmer running throughout. I used three thin coats for full opacity. Then I used MoYou Pro XL plate 19 and black stamping polish by Mundo de Unas for the stamping design. For my top coat I went with my all time favorite HK Girl by Glisten & Glowcrowstoes - last rat stanting - moyou 19And here’s a closer look:crowstoes - last rat standingHave a great week ahead! :*

Llarowe: My Own Private Paradise

Hi sweeties!

I’ve read great things about the Creative Shop stamper lately and decided to give it a try. I still need to get the hang of it since it’s quite big but so far so good. cbl - my own private paradise 3For this mani I used two coats of My Own Private Paradise by Llarowe as my base color. For the design I went with number 03 from the ProXL range by MoYou. And the stamping polishes are both by Mundo de Unas, 29 Neon Pink and 1 White. cbl - my own private paradise 1As for the stamping polish, I became a huge fan of Mundo de Unas. The only down sides in my opinion are the overwhelming smell and the fact that there are no mixing balls in the bottles which makes shaking difficult. I’ve read though that future batches do come with mixing beads which is a great plus since the polish is quite thick and therefore difficult to mix. I’ve ordered my latest bottles directly from their website. Since they’re based in Mexico it takes a long time to get here. I believe I’ve waited about 6 weeks for them to arrive. Then again, they’re totally worth the wait.cbl - my own private paradise - mdu 29 neon pink 1 white - moyou 03Thanks for stopping by! :*

MAC: Monday Blues

Hi lovelies,

I’ve been stamping again! This time I went with a gradient look by using three different stamping polishes:mac - monday blues1For my base I used two coats of Monday Blues by MAC.
Stampingplate is number 04 from the ProXL range by MoYou and I used three stamping polishes by Mundo De Unas:
24 Aqua, 1 White and 5 Turquoise.
To get a gradient effect I randomly added dots of the three colors on the image and scraped from one corner to the other so that the colors slightly bleed into each other. mac - monday blues

OPI: Lost My Bikini In Molokini – Hawaii Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Yes! OPI released their Spring/Summer Collection! 12 new polishes to drool over! I picked up 5 and am slapping myself in the face that I skipped That’s Hula-rious!. I thought I didn’t need yet another minty green hue but after seeing more and more swatches I regret passing on it. Well, maybe next time 😉

On to Lost My Bikini In Molokini:
opi - lost my bikini in molokini1Formula is good. I used two coats here. For the ‘splatter’ design I used MoYou stamping plate number 13 from their Princess Collection and purple stamping polish (12) by Mundo De Unas. Speaking of stamping polish, this is my first Mundo De Unas and I love everything about it. It is super pigmented and works perfect with my XL stamper and scraper that I bought at Hypnotic Polish. I can’t wait to get my hands on more colors. They seem to be very popular since they sell out in an eye blink. At least at Hypnotic Polish. opi - lost my bikini in molokini
Lastly, I am dying to know your thoughts about Pineapples Have Feelings Too. You know what I’m talking about, the weirdest yellow/glitter combo existing on the planet. Everyone seems to hate it. I love weird polishes but I’ll pass on that one. The yellow base has a frost (!) finish. If only it was a crelly or even a slightly shimmer finish I think I’d loved it. Such a bummer. Frost finishes are just not my cup of tea.
