Nail stamping over Nicole by OPI Show You Care

February 16, 2013

Base Color: Nicole by OPI Show You Care
Stamping Color: Essie Nothing Else Metals (YES, the Essie metallic polishes stamp well)

NOTE: I wore the purple polish by itself for a day and then added the stamping. So there’s a bit of tip wear visible in the photos. :)

Before-you-take-of-the-polish Stamping

November 13, 2012

Sometimes right before I take off polish, I do a bit of stamping. I do this for the following reasons:

  1. It’s great for testing out different stamp designs. This design was hard to stamp because you had to get the placement just right.
  2. Testing out different top coats over stamping. Essie Good to Go and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri smear the stamping, while Seche Vite is perfect still.
  3. If I like how it turns out, I stretch the manicure a couple more days.

So, this is what I did tonight. Although, I’ll be taking it off soon…

White with Black Lines Stamped Manicure

July 8, 2012

Happy Sunday, all!

I have a simple yet striking manicure for you today. When I first saw the BM-319 plate in the new 2012 Bundle Monster pack, I really wanted to try this design using black and white. I think it’s just so modern looking. :)

Anyhow, enjoy! I also filmed the manicure as well. :)
