Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have another nail design for you from my Stamping ABC post series. It is a playful textured tiger skin in pink and purple.

This design is super simple to put up but has something special to it. As a base I have China Glaze Unrefined which is a matte textured pink. This is one of my favorite three dimensional formulas and I figured it would be even lovelier with some tiger skin print on :)

This is how China Glaze Unrefined looks in two coats.

Here is the finished textured pink tiger skin look.

I got the tiger skin patter from my MoYou London The Pro #3 image plate and used Rimmel London Electric! nail color for the skin print. You can see it featured as a base color in my How to use water decals tutorialTip! When stamping onto a textured base you will need a bit more pressure on the nail than usual. This is because you need color to get in between the textured bumps and your stamp pattern to have no spaces without color.

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to show you a textured nail color from Konad. I was sent Konad Sandy in Coral Bronze for honest review and in this post I will share with you how I feel about it.

Color
I was super interested in trying Sandy out because it was a surprise to me that Konad do regular nail polish in addition to their special stamping formulas. My nail polish is called Coral Bronze and is a copper shade with tiny gold particles.

Here are some shots showing Coral Bronze with and without top coat.

Formula and application
Konad Sandy line features textured colors with a matte finish. I applied Coral Bronze in two layers to get the effect from the photos. Formula is rather thick and very easy to apply with the dense brush Sandy line is equipped with. Color is opaque and you can easily go one coat but the textured finish is more visible in two.

Coral Bronze dries fast and is extremely easy to remove. You do not need some special procedures to take it off and this is a huge plus for me when it comes to textured nail polishes as sometimes they are a total pain to remove.

Wear
I had Konad Sandy in Coral Bronze on for three days. Without a top coat it wears perfect for a day and then starts to fade towards nail tips. With a top coat on Coral Bronze had no chips or color fades for the whole three day period I wore it. Tip! Wear the textured look for a day and then add a top coat. This way you will enjoy variety and you won’t have to change a full color for your perfect mani :)

My verdict
I loved this nail color for three main reasons. First, it does not need much to do your nails, just the normal two coat procedure and the average drying time. Second, it comes off very easily. And then, I love how this shade complements a yellow undertone complexion. This is by far the most lovely copper shade I have tried as I find this range of colors usually look strange with my skin tone.

Hello lovelies!

Hello lovelies!

I am still in love with stamped nail art and the design opportunities it gives. Today I will show you a blue dragon theme stamp on nude base and will also share my thoughts on MoYou London Suki plate #7. So welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

Nude Dragon theme stamped nail art
For this design I painted my nails nude using Zoya Chantal. You have seen my swatch and review in my Zoya Naturel nail polish collection post.

I find this opaque nude a great base for all kinds of stamp experiments. I wanted to try a stamp design with a different image on each nail so my Suki image plate was perfect for this. I used CND Midnight Sapphire nail polish to do the images. It is not a special stamping nail polish but I am happy how it worked. My top coat smudged some design parts a bit but again, it is also not a specially designed product for stamping so I could see that happen.

I love this design, it got a whole lot of attention and I could also test how some of my non stamping polishes work with stamping.

MoYou London Suki image plate #07
I have already raved about this image plate in my Stamping ABC post series intro post and now I have some more impressions to share.

MoYou London The Pro 03 stamping image plate

I am fairly impressed with the sole idea of this image plate design. It features several similar theme images overlaying and interacting with each other’s design. This image plate offers endless design options due to its design concept.

Suki #7 image plate is super easy to use, it has that plastic base which maes it easier to hold and manipulate. I have also used  it several times with regular nail color and it has worked beyond my expectations. It is easy to clean and its individuall package makes it easy to store too. I love this image plate by MoYou London and I would say it is a must have stamping product for every stamping nail art lover.
