Mermaid vibes

         I placed an order for a few new polishes that I just fell in love. I mainly really wanted to stamp and see how the shade named 9ml Green Duochrome Nail Stamping Polish Chameleon Lacquer Nail Art Plate Printing 001 from beauty big bang.  I can say that as a nail base color, applies well, and has fantastic color pay off.  Stamping so far I have to do some testing because I did a swap sticker to the bottles and the doesn't seem to show so well.

    So the bottles on stamping polish came, and I was so excited. The colors both looking beautiful in the bottles.  Since I had some swap stickers that I bought from Maniology to, place them on the and stamped out the with a lace image. The swap me stickers are black and white. This is supposed to help with you see how a stamping polish will look on a light or dark color nail. I think this is a great idea wished more companies would add them.

  I used a base coat on my nails. I think that I could have just painted my nails with one coat, but I had a few that I wanted to fix. After a few minutes, I then applied a speedy coat and thought I was done. I was wrong, started thinking about summer vibes when I looked over and seen my mermaid scaled stencils from whats up nails.
     I started to look at the rest of my collection on stamping polish. Really for this step, any nail polish would do, just work quickly with regular polishes since the dry quicker. I went with black finish from Maniology. I added the stencil to the nail, painted on the black to a makeup sponge then added that to my nails. I love using a makeup sponge since it is more comfortable in my opinion to control. I used if I was working on a mix media or crafting project.  Once I was done added some smudge free coat, let it dry and add a glossy top to finish the look.

    Here are a few tips that I learned while working on this mani
1) You want to place the stencil on really well, you use it whole or cut to fit to size.

2) Use a little bit of nail polish, build up the color. I find a sponge helps with that and if you get too much on the sponge, then just dap some of it off.

3) You can use one stencil for your whole hand start with the pinky and so on but use another stencil for the other because of the polish will start to build up and stick of the stencil will lose it hold.

Spring time Mani

So like most I am so excited for the warmer weather and beautiful spring colors. So far spring seems to be taking its time to get here. I have been somewhat inspired by the season to create a mani from the spring equinox sky which I found on google.  The image is of the night sky with stars swirling around in night sky. The colors look like to navy, purple, white and orange.
I tried a couple of different ways to all the colors, but I could make it work. I finally settled on adding a light blue since I was trying to turn this into a spring mani. A lot of the items that I used are from Maniology. So let's get into steps again I sorry no video for this post and few photos.

1)  You want to start with clean nails and then add a base coat. I used Maniology base coat, or sometimes I use  Sally Hansen quick dry base and top coat.

2) For some of the nails, I painted them with two coats of  Celestial  I wait for a bit and added Maniology speedy dry top coat.
The other nails I stamped …
