Hello Lacquer Luvers! A few weeks ago I came across a post in AIS (Adventures in Stamping) about some awesome new stamping plates by a company called MoYou London. Once I saw the designs I HAD to have two of the plates and today I'm showing off the first mani I did using one of them.
Please excuse my frizzy hair in the picture, it was early in the morning and I couldn't wait to photograph the plates and get started on a manicure lol. Anyway, as you can see, these plates are shaped differently than most. They're rectangular with a plastic underside which is nice protection from the sharp edges some plates are known to have.
I began my manicure with a base of Essie Feed Me followed by a skittle manicure using the following colors: (thumb) Essie Shake Your $$ Maker, (index) Essie Bouncer It's Me, (middle) Zoya Pippa, (ring) Zoya America, (pinky) Saturday Disco Fever. I used two coats for the Zoya nails and three coats for the ones polished with Essie shades.
I used the dotted image from MoYou Pro Collection - 10 on my middle and ring fingers then used the POW! and BANG! images over the dots using Konad Special Stamping Polish in white. I used nail art stripers and a dotting tool to freehand the cartoonish look on the rest of my nails following this tutorial by CutePolish. My manicure was complete with a coat of HKGirl topcoat.
Waaaait! No, now it's complete with a coat of Hard Candy's Matte-ly In Love!! I think the matte topper did so much to make the comic book nails look more..cartoonish. I can't wait to try out more images on this plate and show you guys the other one that I got! As always, I hope you all enjoyed this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing the next one with you, xo!
