I watched a whole bunch of 80s movies this past week. I was inspired to do some retro bright colored 80s themed nails. This is what I came up with.

80snailsI love bright colors! I also did some advanced stamping techniques for this one with various plates. Continue reading

Dance Lengend Angel’s Touch

29 Nov

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I’m looking forward to the month of December and the snow it brings us here!

Angel’s Touch is a soft salmon pink creme from Dance Legend’s Touch Me collection. I recently was sent this by a nail mail friend who resides in Russia. Dance Legend is a Russian brand in case if anyone was wondering. Here’s my finished nails using Angel’s Touch, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and various stamping plates by Bundle Monster.

Let’s talk about application. It took three thin coats to even out the small patchy spots that were not fixed by the second coat. Formula is good despite needing three coats. I personally think this color is worth the extra coat. I stamped the snowflakes and the lines using three different Bundle Monster plates. They are, BM-209, BM-319 and BM-323. Snow Me White by Sinful Colors is one of my favorite whites to stamp with because it’s so cheap and works amazing with stamping plates! If you haven’t used it for stamping, please do try!

Sinful Colors can be found in chain drugstores like CVS, Walgreens, et cetera.

Stardust Polish’s Super Giant

6 Apr

It was refreshing to receive at least one indie polish that didn’t have glitter in it for review. Sometimes a simple polish can be beautiful and that is what Super Giant is. Stardust Polish’s Super Giant is this gorgeous rich red with a slight shimmer and some gold undertones to it.

Meow! How do you like this? So sorry for my short nails. I broke my one of my nails yesterday and had to file the rest back. That was definitely a sad day for me.

Polishes used: OPI’s Can’t Find My Czechbook (from the Euro Centrale collection), Orly’s Liquid Vinyl (my favorite black for stamping), and Bean Juice’s Once In A Blue Moon. Stamping plates used: BM-201 and BM-04. I’m loving the Once In A Blue Moon! The tiny blue holo glitter’s formula is adorable! Formula is great. This was one coat over black. You can find Bean Juice’s polishes at her etsy shop at: http://www.thecrafthouseofbeans.etsy.com
