Stamping Saturdays

Hello lovelies,

I’m so sorry I’ve been away so long. The big move happened and it took such a long time to finally get the internet installed in the new house, but I’m finally back! I’ve really missed blogging so much, however I’ve still been polishing and writing and have lots of lovely posts coming up for you over the next few weeks so stay tuned (subscribed)

 

This evening I have something new for you; Stamping Saturday! So this may not actually be new to many of you as the concept has been around forever (…not technically true. See oflifeandlacquer‘s site for full info), but I have never actually posted a stamped manicure on a Saturday before. I have also only ever stamped with the polish that came in the Konad stamping kit I have (white, green and red) but low and behold you can actually stamp with many different polishes.

My choice of polish to stamp was easy peasy; LacquerLust’s Aquamarine is a stunning blue with full rainbow holo. It’s a totally dreamy polish so I knew it would look just as beautiful stamped over another polish.

The other polish choice was trickier. I wanted a contrasting muted blue so as not to take away the limelight of the holo stamp so I chose NailsInc‘s Holland Park Gardens. I got this mini polish in a flower decal set and had only used it once previously so thought it was about time it had an outing.

The plate I used was This Circus plate (NC05) by NailCraze. The only thing better than holo polish, is holo polish stars.

Rather than go for a full stamped mani I decided instead to just stamp over the tips. To do this I applied these white tip marker stickers and stamped over the top.

And here is my final design…
