Purple And Orange Floral Stamped Nail Art


Floral Nail Art

Hello readers,
Today I have some fun bright stamped nail art to share with you.  I finally figured out a nice combo of stamper and technique to get my UberChic plate to cooperate with me.  The peach base is Ceramic Glaze Urbane which I topped with a coat of Different Dimension Tinselitis.  I used an abstract floral patter from UberChic Beauty plate 4-01 and Hit The Bottle Call The Plumber stamping polish to add the purple design on top.  A coat of Gelous smoothed out the glitter and a coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze sealed everything up.  Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

Iridescent Pastel Stamped Nail Art



Hello readers,
I have some subtle nail art to wrap up the week.  I started with a base of Trust Fund Beauty Put A Ring On It.  On my pointer and pinky finger I used Eat.Sleep.Polish. Aisling's Secret and Cheeky Jumbo plate N.  On my middle and ring finger I used Zoya Rayne and Cheeky Jumbo Plate B.  The contrasting blue and teal shimmer in the stamped patterns really lights up with the light catches it.  Girly Bits Glitter Glaze sealed everything up.  Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

Black and Pink Bubble Nail Art


Stamped Nail Art

Hello readers,
It's nail art time!  I started out with a base of Trust Fund Beauty No Filter, a pale blush creme.  Then I used Cheeky jumbo plate B, China Glaze Liquid Leather and Different Dimension Mystery Villain #2 Lady Tremaine to create the black and silver bubble decals for my middle and ring finger.  Finally, I stamped my index and pinky fingers with a different circular pattern from the same plate using Color Club What A Drag.  A coat of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze sealed everything up.
