Blue herringbone stamping | Bundle Monster BM-XL212

This blue herringbone stamping manicure disappointed a little on camera. In the flesh, it was awesome, creating a stunning optical illusion effect of a 3D pattern. But I just couldn’t seem to capture how it looked on camera. It’s a real shame that I can’t demonstrate how good this looked, but if you have this […] Read more

Festival Nails | June 2016 Nailbox

I used the June 2016 Nailbox content to create a festival nails look. This is the first subscription box of polish that I have received.

Stamped Blue Roses

This is a manicure from last year. I had worn Nail Geek Dreams for a few days and decided to upgrade it by adding some stamping. I used CICI & SISI plate 03 and stamped some roses using Mundo De Unas Holland Blue. I’m liking the MDU stamping polishes. I’ve had to get used to […] Read more
