To get it, simply use Zoya Chantal, Brigitte and Normani to color your nails and then use the same colors to stamp the leopard skin design. Zoya Naturel colors are great for stamping!

I used my MoYou London The Pro stamping plate for the leopard stamp and a mat top coat to achieve more satin line finish.

Hello nail art lovers!

This is another post from my Stamping ABC post series! I have a chameleon color base with stamped peacock feather detail.

Dance Legend Chameleon nail polish in Sully
First, I’d like by showing off my stunningly beautiful color base – this is Sulley by dance Legend, one of the 6 shades featured in the brand\s Chameleon nail polish collection. It is a multi chrome formula, changing shades between teal/aquatic and pink/purple depending on how light hits your nail surface.

For my swatches below I applied it over black and wore it for 3 days with no chips.

Peacock feather nail art stamp
I couldn’t stand to add peacock feather to this color as it kind of kept calling for them :) I used my MoYou London The Pro image plate for the feather detail and my Black stamping nail polish from Konad. I played with the design a bit and added a different feather part to each nail. I love how this one turned out. Add a top coat and enjoy!

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!

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.

Zoya Chantal swatch

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.

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to show you my Easter nails as well as a few new taping products I tried out for this manicure. So welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

I wanted my Easter nails to be colorful, bring joy and resemble hand painted Easter eggs. To start off, I painter my nails white using my Essie Blanc. Then I randomly sponged my China Glazes I recently got and showed you. These are China Glaze What a Pansy, At Vase Value, Grass Is Lime Greener, Petal to the Metal and Sun of a Peach. I stamped on top of this random color boom using some Konad stamping products.

Konad Nails UK liked my Stamping ABC project and sent some of their products my way to test out. I got a full stamping starter kit featuring an image plate, stamp and scraper, black and white special nail polish and a special top coat. I also got image plate m94, an image plate holder as well as their textured nail polish Sandy in Coral Bronze (never knew they did those).

Although I have some successful stamping experiments with regular nail polish I could never get any white to work for me. That’s why I was in love when I tried their white special nail polish for this manicure. It stamps great, it is opaque and cover the base color very well. Konad special nail polish left no smudges unlike my regular top coats I have already ranted about. I hven’t used my new image plates yest because I’d already had the design in mind but I love them and will be reviewing and featuring them in designs soon.

Thanks for reading, have great Easter holidays and see you soon!

Hello nail art lovers!

So proud to show you my first multi color stamped nail art, even if on a single finger :) Welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

This is basically a bright green allover color with a multi color zebra print on the ring finger. Stay with me to learn how I did it and what I found.

China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener

China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener
This nail design uses as a base color China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener from the City Flourish nail polish collection. I must say it surprised me a bit by how bright and vibrant it goes, almost neon like. It is a popping green creme with a semi matte finish. It is very difficult to apply it evenly so I added a top coat to smooth color out.

Multi color zebra print stamped nails
I chose to transfer my zebra  print to a bare nail because I am using regular nail polish and thought it would stick better to a matte surface. I was right and the print turned out pretty well on a layer of matte nail polish base.

I loved how my multi color zebra stamp nail design turned out so I recreated it on all nails.

I used the zebra print from my MoYou London The Pro 07 image plate which I have already shown on the blog. I must admit I am surprised how well stamps come out with these image plates with regular nail polish, I promise to write more on how my MoYou London plates work for me in a later post. I applied four nail colors on the zebra image, all from China Glaze City Flourish collection: China Glaze At Vase Value, China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener, China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin and China Glaze Petal to the Metal. When I scraped them with the scraper they mixed a bit, leaving me with the perfect multi color zebra print :)

So this was pretty much it. I am enjoying my newbie stamping nail art experience and will keep showing you my stamped designs.

Hello nail art lovers!

I am excited to share with my latest stamped nail art, it is a snake skin with bizarre color :) Welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

I think using this color combo makes the snake skin nails experience more chic and lady like. Here are my stamped snake skin nail art in daylight.

The base
For this manicure I used one truly loved but unfortunately discontinued nail polish. It is Rimmel London Hot List, a purplish taupe crème packed with very fine hot pink micro shimmer. Color looks dusty in daylight and more purple in artificial light. Chanel Paradoxal is the closest color I have came across to replace it. On that base I stamped MoYou Londnon snake skin from their The Pro image plates collection #3.

The stamp
I thought Hot List would pair great with a taupe cream color, so I chose Zoya Normani for my snae skin stamp. I was so pleasantly surprised it stamped great! I have already shown you Zoya Normani in my Zoya Naturel spring 2014 post.

I love how this nail design turned out! I had great fun recreating animal skin on nails using shades which are not typical for its natural coloring. I will certainly continue my experiment with strange color animal skin nail art and show you what turns out!
