Forest Moon Nails

Hey Friends

Today on the blog I have some forest moon nails to share with you.

I started with one coat of Zoya Austin then used the following to stamp with
Zoya Mel
Zoya Lou
Sally Hanson White On
Zoya M8ila
Virago Varnish Night Swim
The plates were B Loves Plates Cosmic Space for the moon, Mundo De Unas ZZ Forest 1 and ZZ Forest 2. Zoya Austin has a great formula, no running or pooling, a one coater.

These took a couple of houses to do because I wanted to wait for the base colour to dry really well before starting.

I'm debating whether or not to use a thermal top coat over these.

I've included some photos of my flowers still going strong, although I am not entirely sure what my old english purple rose is doing, its sent up two massive stalks. The red flowers are a variety of Lobelia that almost was killed a few years ago when we went away for a week and when we came back we found the pot on its side and the plant very withered, its taken it two years to come back to life.

Nail Addict and Alien Nails

 Hey Friends

I didnt post yesterday as I was wearing two unstamped polishes, the polish on my left hand is Lacquester Unfinished Business, a stunning holographic with a strong red/pink flash, this was almost opaque in one coat, gorgeous formula, no running or pooling. The Lacquester was from the UK Polish Con.

My right hand had DRK Nails Light Tricks, again utterly stunning, a purple jelly based jammed packed with fiery copper large flakies, this also had a good formula but due to need to see the flakies it was a bit sheer, I did three coats on all nails except my thumb which got two, good formula though, no running or pooling. This was from the October Polish Pickup. I had planned to stamp over both these polishes but they were just too pretty to stamp over, I flipping adore the matte topcoat over Light Tricks.

This weekend was the posting day for When Colours Collide, it was green, black and white colours, I started with two coats of The Baddest Witch from Fancy Gloss, then stamped using Revlon Stiletto, Sally Hansen White On, Virage Varnish Pool Hair Dont Care and Horrendous. The plate I used was from B Loves Plates UFO.

My last set of pics are some playing I was doing to see what I could do with Fancy Gloss Topaz Shards. The base was Zoya Dove, stamping with Virago Varnish Night Swim.

A fail and a win, using Zoyas.

 Hey Friends

Today on the blog I share a fail and a win.

The fail is the first set of pics, nothing was wrong with the polishes it was just me being a clutz and dinging them jst as they dried. 

Base was two coats of Zoya Mara a gorgeous nude that had a great formula, no running or pooling. This is almost my perfect mannequin hand colour, I then added a coat of Zoya Lottie on my middle fingers, Fancy Gloss Fire Opal on my index finger and Starrily Unicorn on my little fingers, then it all went wrong as the polish wasnt dry and chaos! dented polish agh.

I had better luck with the next manicure, thankfully!

Base is one sweet coat of Zoya Val, perfect formula, no running or pooling, I then stamped a blood moon using Zoya Soko and Mila, the wolf used Virago Varnish Bountiful Beige and Revlon Stiletto, the stars are Virago Varnish Mano Madness, plates were B Loves Plates N13 Cosmic Space and Born Pretty BP-16.

Last pic is me tempting fate lol, this is the longest my nails have been in quite a while, so I decided to take a pic because as sure as the sun rises I'm gonna break one soon.

More Halloween Nails

 Hey Friends

Today I have more Halloween Nails, these are a very subtle with their stamping set.

I used two more of my September Polish Pickup order, I did three coats each of Simply Ment to Be by MTK Design and Party at the Castle by Paint It Pretty Polish.

Simply Ment to Be is a very unusual polish, cold this is a dusty purple, hot its a bright orange, this is jam packed with flakies, its a sheer formula so did need the three coats but good formula, no running or pooling, I adore the dusty purple tone on this.

Party at the Castle is also stunning and unusual, a deep teal/blue base with a massive purple shimmer, the duochrome for this is gorgeous, my photos do not do this any justice, in person it changed every time I moved my nails, great formula, no running or pooling just a bit sheer, I think I could have gotten away with two coats.

I then stamping spider webs on all nails using Color Club Cosmic Fate and Eternal Beauty, the witch on my right hand is Zoya Bentley, the stamping didnt show up as well as I thought it would.  Over all I really enjoyed both polishes as they were both new brands to me via Polish Pickup.  Stamping plate was the same as yesterday, Dixie Plates Halloween 2017.

Halloween Nails

Hey Friends

Today I share some more Halloween themed nails.

I started with 2 coats each of Gothic Summer on my left hand which is a dark purple cold to bright orange hot thermal from Fancy Gloss. On my right hand I went with Toucan 2.0 also Fancy Gloss which is a tri-thermal that starts a deep brown cold to an orange warm and then yellow hot and its jam packed with flakies.

I then stamped spider webs using Color Club Cosmic Fate, then the rest was stamped using Revlon Stiletto, the plates I used were Dixie Plates Halloween 2017, Uberchic Beauty Halloween 07, Dixie Plates Halloween 2020 and Powder Perfect Halloween 1.

I do rather like hidden stamping.

On Saturday we went for a walk along parts of the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trails. The cows were not that interested in us and the sheep ran away. The strange hut things were for glamping.
