Bird Stamping + Cult Nails - Baker

Hello dear readers!

I am trying to post more often to motivate myself use more of my polishes and nail art, if possible.

This time I'm going to show you some bird stamping... this is a pattern that I like a lot because it looks like woodblock print. I've seen it on my customers' manicures, but this is the first time I get to try it on my nails.

(Pictures can be enlarged)

I started by applying 2 coats of Cult Nails - Baker as the base for this nail art

For an extra touch to the background of my stamping, I added a layer of gold flake topcoat.

Sorry for such a bad angle picture, but here you can see the stamping in more detail.
I used BuNa A plate and used Nabi in black to stamp the design.

I hope you like this manicure... on my next post, I will be trying water decal nail art ;)

ILNP Cutie Pop and BuNa B Floral

Hello dear readers!

Here's my manicure featuring shorter nails after a long, long time...

(All pictures can be enlarged)

 For this nail art I used ILNP in Cutie Pop which is a bubblegum pink with a holo finish

Using Nabi in black as my stamping polish, I stamped a floral design from BuNa B plate.

Extra pic...

This manicure was very simple because I just wanted to give an extra touch to an already cute color by ILNP.

Nail Art/Swatches Compilation

Hello dear readers!

It's good to be back to blogging once again.
This time, instead of posting long overdue swatches and nail art one after another, I decided to post all here.

Scroll down to see more pictures and a brief description of each.

First, I start with swatches of Lacquer Lust - Amor which is a thermal with that turns pastel pink when cold and white when warm. It also has a mix of iridescent hexagonal glitter and metallic pink glitter. Very opaque and easy to apply.
Here you can see the thermal effect at its best.

Next is OPI - Love angel music baby from the Gwen Stefani collection. It is a gold that dries to a satin finish, but in this case, I added topcoat for shine.

I used this nail color as the base for water marbling. You can see a short video on my Instagram, here.

Here, I did some lace design stamping. I used OPI - French quarter for your thoughts as the base and stamped with Khroma Beauty - Dahlia. For the accent nail, I stamped with the OPI color over the Dahlia base. I used a lace design from my BuNa A plate.

Here, I'm wearing OPI - Magazine cover mouse, a red textured nail polish with gold and pink shimmer.

This is a swatch of Nailnation 3000 - Cashmere topped with 24k gold flake topcoat The Midas Touch by Ninja Polish. I think it was a very nice combination.

This is it! I hope you liked this post.
