Spring Double Stamp

I called this Spring Double Stamp cause it crushed my need for a cool design with bright colours a while back. I used:
Orly Gaga For Green
Rimmel Sunny Days
Moyou London Fashionista Collection-04

I also dotted in a bit of acrylic black to create a bit more continuity. I wore this till it was falling off! It's so fun to mix unexpected colour and stamping.

Hope you're all well!

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Gradient Day Five, Greenient

So today I wanted a springtime look with some plant inspired stamping. I recently purchased the loose plate BM-S206 from Bundle Monster and I stamped this combo of images from it on a wild and wonderful combo of Crash from My Indie Polish and this amazing green/shimmer from Color Club on the tips. I know, another French tip gradient for 3/5 this week, but I couldn't help it. I loved the look...and if I'm honest it's quicker to clean up too!

So, hope everyone enjoyed gradient week. Check out the girls final looks below and enjoy your weekend!

Digital Dozen Does Gradient, Day Four, Festival Nails

It's music festival season and with all the new images and festivals I'm seeing inspired manis everywhere. I thought I'd get in on the action with the plates I had on hand. For my base I used Finger Paints Don't Make A Scene and then created a gradient with teal acrylic. I then tested out stamping on acrylic paint without top coating totally can. I used Moyou London Fashionista Collection 04 with Revlon Midnight Affair.

 I totally loved how the nude to teal gradient turned out. I'm also glad I stamped in navy instead of black! So what do you think, Should I head to Cochella?

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Gradients, Day Three, Moyou London

So this look is the something a little different I hinted at in my last post. I'm calling this gradient style a Fickle Gradient!! I started with a regular gradient using Sinful Color Endless Blue and China Glaze Celtic Sun. I then used the skinny end of the cosmetic wedge to add the FICKLE unpredictable faded lines up the length of the nail. I also stamped an image from Moyou London Fashionista Collection 04.

So a little different but cool right? I will for sure do this look again for a base! Do you like my Fickle gradient? Or is it too 'messy' to be a look?

Don't forget the InLinkz below, as today's look are awesome!

Digital Dozen Does Gradients, Day Two, Mrs. P's Nail Potions Fishnet Nail Art

Today's look is a french gradient look. French really isn't something I ever do, so I thought I'd switch it up! I actually ended up trying this look twice this week along with something else kind of new. More on that soon. For this look I used the incredible Mrs. P's Nail Potions Prism Cell as the base and then created the gradient with Indie Polish Zap! I then double stamped with Bundle Monster BM-314 and Bundle Monster BM-315. 

I found the final fishnet look kind of sassy/bridal?? I don't know, but I loved it!

Cheers all,

Julep and Bundle Monster

A simple wearable nail stamp look today. I've been wanting to keep hitting the untried pile, and Julep Toni was next up. I paired Toni with BM-XL01.

I like the subtle but high contrast wearable feel once I matted this out.

Neon and Wild, Moyou London Nail Stamping

What to say about this one? I don't know, but it sure is neon and wild! I used one coat of Sally Hansen Mousseline for a milky base then just let my creativity flow. I distressed the base with a pink neon and then added the lime glitter labeled simply Suzy that I picked up somewhere random.  I had to add a layer of Seche before stamping because of the texture, but was then able to add the stripes from plate Moyou London Holy Shapes Collection-02.

This one was totally fun and bright in person, and very 80's.

Cheers all,

I love Gold! Moyou London Nail Stamping

You guys, I know it's a simple layer...but these are my favourite recent look. I'm not normally a metallic fan, but this combo had me in awe of my hands...for as long as possible! I hated taking these off. The base was OPI 50 Years of Style, and the images are from Moyou London Holy Shapes Collection-02.

I'm thinking this polish combo needs to be repeated soon!

Cheers all,
