Spring Flower Garden (Stamped)

I'm really hooked on nail stamping since it's such a quick way to dress up a plain old polish. Today's design was the first one done using my Konad polishes and plates with a spring inspired design.


Products used:
1. Stamper: Konad Double ended stamper
2. Scraper: Pueen scraping card
3. Polishes: Konad red and green
4. Stamping plates: Konad plates # 6 (index finger), 8 (pinky), 25 (ring finger), 54 (middle finger)
5. Base color: NYX Golden Lavender
6. Top coat: Seche Vite.



Tips and tricks with stamping:
1. For beginners: Get yourself some of the konad polishes especially the white and black, they work amazingly. 
2. Allow the stamped image to dry properly or use a thicker layer of top coat to prevent smearing the image (like i did above :)
3. Try adding two colors side by side to one image on the plate and scrape so they do not mix so you get a multicolor design.
4. Do not use the metal scraper that usually comes with the Konad sets, they scrape the plates badly. Use an old bank card or the Pueen scraping card instead.

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
