Hi everyone! Today I want to show you a mani I created with gifts I received in my secret Santa box for Nail Anarchy Christmas in July. I’ll have a post up about the box I received on the last Friday of this month with our Christmas in July nail challenge posts 🙂 One of the gifts I received was my very first MoYou London stamping plate! I was SO excited! I really love the plate my secret Santa chose and couldn’t wait to try it out! Here is a photo of the plate (Princess 10):
I started off with an L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. Unfortunately neither of the purple polishes I used have names. The lilac is a Revolution polish that I received as a gift. My friend left the country and passed on all her polish to me. A lot of them were gloopy. I tried to fix this one with thinner, but it seems hopeless. I will test it for stamping and if it doesn’t work I am afraid I’ll have to toss it. The dark purple I received in my secret Santa box. It is a deep plum colour and the brand name on the bottle is Glintz. I was going to do a glitter placement accent nail, but I dropped the first piece of glitter onto my nail and couldn’t move it. I tried a pattern and couldn’t get it to look good, so I decided to cover the entire nail with the loose glitter. There are probably 5 coats of top coat holding those suckers together. Once the gradient had dried on my other nails I used Tip Top Armour Plate and the MoYou London Princess 10 plate to stamp the same image on all of my nails. I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite. Ta da!
I would love to hear what you think if this in the comments below 🙂
