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.

But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
