Roses - a double stamping manicure

I saw this dress somewhere which had a leaf print on a blue base which looked very pretty. I thought I would try that on my nails but also add some pink roses to the mix! This would make such a pretty Spring manicure.

Hearts for Valentine's Day

A pink manicure with hearts - just the thing for Valentine's day, right?! I thought I would add a bit to it though by filling in the hearts in different colours with the advanced stamping technique.

The Ocean and a Mermaid!

The Manicure today uses another Born Pretty Stamping plate - BP-23. This is an Ocean themed plate with some pretty images which would be good for a summery beach manicure too. I have used a mermaid and some waves images for my nails today.

Keep Calm and Polish On!

I have been looking forward to using this image plate ever since I ordered it! And since it was from the Born Pretty store, I had to wait a few weeks for it to be delivered. But I really enjoyed wearing this manicure - it was worth the wait!

The Last of the Festive Nails!

I have two manicures today - one that was done for Christmas in 2014 and the other for New Year's Eve. First up is the Christmas manicure, which I did with a new Born Pretty Stamping Plate. The Born Pretty store has recently released a range of new stamping plates which have really pretty images and stamp very well. The Stamping plate for this manicure is the BP01. The stamping polish is Essie No Place Like Chrome on a base of Zoya Dream. I used a dotting tool to depict the snow around the reindeers.

The second manicure I wore for the New Year's Eve's celebration. I chose the colour teal to match a teal and black lace dress that I wore and used the lace image on the index and little fingers to depict that. I used the gold for stamping though, since black didn't show up very well on the teal.
The sparkly base for these nails is one Coat of Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Scarab topped with two coats of Sally Hansen Triple Shine 360 Sparkling Water. The images are from the MoYou London plates from the Festive Collection - 05 and the Bridal Collection - 07. The stamping polish is Mentality Shirin.

Happy New Year 2015!

A New Year means new beginnings - so here's to a new beginning for my little blog!
I have been painting my nails and doing some nail art these past few months - but not as much and I think it shows! I am a little rusty but it can only get better from here.
Here is a fireworks manicure for the New Year celebrations.
The base polish is Models Own Diamond Luxe Marquise Maroon. The images stamped are from the MoYou London Festive Collection Plate 05. The gold polish used for stamping is OPI Love Angel Music Baby.
