Nail News! MoYou London PUNK Collection Expansion!

Hello Fellow Stampers! I apologize that I am a day late getting this information out to you. I was working on something else, nail related of course, and lost track of time. So just last week MoYou London released the brand new Punk Collection. The plates numbers were all in sequence so I wasn't expecting an expansion so soon. But, surprise, they will be adding 5 new plates tomorrow. Let's take a look.

Born Pretty Water Decal Review + Nail Art Video Tutorial

Hello Lovelies! I was excited to receive an email from The Born Pretty Store a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in reviewing products for them. I happily accepted their invitation and selected these pretty, lacy Water Decals for my first product. I picked this item because I have lots of experience working with stamping decals I've made myself, but I had never tried water decals before. I liked the idea of challenging myself a little, learning something new and creating a YouTube video to show others how to apply them.

Dance Legend Termo Shine Swatches, Review and Nail Art

Hello everyone! I hope all of you had a nice weekend. I was busy swatching, as you'll see in the weeks to come. If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I've recently discovered thermal polishes and I am completely obsessed. These may have been out for a while now, I don't know, but they are new to me and just too gorgeous to keep to myself. Warning! Picture heavy post after the jump!

Hello Nail Artists! Today I have a design I created using 2 of the plates from MoYou London's new Bridal Collection. There's an amusing story that goes along with these plates that I feel compelled to share, but let's have a peek at the design first.

unTEAL Sunrise: Skittle Nail Art Design

Hello Nail Artists! Today I would like to share a design that was created using all "new to me" products from Liquid Sky Lacquer, Dance Legend, Julep and Apipila. Yes, I actually used a plate that wasn't made by MoYou London! I love them dearly, but the Nail Mail kept pouring in last month when the blog and I were completely focused on designs for their challenge. Time has been getting away from me lately and last night was the first chance I had to try out some of my new stuff. I named this one "unTEAL Sunrise" for the obvious reason you'll see in a minute and because the sun came up when I was still working on it.

Here is the completed "unTEAL Sunrise" design and I am holding the bottle of inspiration in my hand.

Ball and Chain: Easy Textured Nail Art Design

Hello Nail Artists! I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. Today I would like to share the 2nd to last nail art design I created for the MoYou London Challenge. This one was for Day 26 and the theme was Texture. I've been crazy into texture lately so I was excited to have an actual reason to load my nails up with textured goodness! I try to come up with fun names for these designs and "Ball and Chain" was the first thing that popped into my head while viewing the finished design, so I went with it.

The Dandelion Manicure! Skittle Nail Art Design

Hello Nail Artists! Do you recall the first time you saw the black and white manicure of a girl's face in profile blowing on a dandelion? Freeing the little dandelion florets to flow across the rest of the fingernails? How many of you have been dying to recreate that design ever since? I am beyond excited that I finally got my chance!
