Giveaway information will be at the bottom of the post, so check it out!
Today I’ve got some stamping to share with you! I was very excited recently to be able to finally place an order with Messy Mansion, who has some of the best stamping plates! I got MM21 & MM06 (I still want MM14, which is currently sold out, and the upcoming MM25!). Shipping was pretty quick considering it was coming from down under!
I also wanted something really sparkly and girly. I got the idea of using a fine holo glitter topcoat over a duochrome from a couple of awesome manicures Tunay Na Mahal did on her blog, so I set out to sort of recreate it!
I started with a base of two coats of Indigobananas Maui Wowee (which I wore alone here) and one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. On top of that I stamped using the regular konad white polish & Messy Mansion 06 plate.
I took pictures of the base before stamping first because it was just so pretty!!
What do you think? Fairy Dust would have shown up better against a darker base, but I like it like this, too.
Now for a blog update- for the next few weeks, my posting schedule is going to change from every monday, wednesday & friday to just tuesdays & thursdays (starting this thursday!). As you can see here, my pinky nail broke, and unfortunately I just lost my middle nail too, down to the quick. 🙁 So I had to go to nubbins on all of my nails and they’re pretty damn short now. Luckily I had a few weeks worth of posts saved up so hopefully by the time I run out of posts with this schedule they’ll be long enough to blog again! Here’s to hoping! Man, I never thought I’d be that girl who gets depressed over a nail breaking, but I’m sure you guys understand!!!
Because of this, I decided to go ahead and host my first giveaway. I want to share some awesome polish with you guys to cheer myself up about the nubbins! One of my favorite indie brands is Indigobananas (check out my posts featuring her polishes here), she makes amazing quality polishes that are really unique (which can be tough to do with so many indies out there!). So it was an easy choice to give away two of her polishes in my first giveaway.
