Another episode in my never ending quest to improve my stamping skills!
My base polish today is two coats of Freckles Polish Papa Legba, which is a brownish-red burgandy colour with a scattered holo. I fail at describing colours. The pics are pretty true to real life though.
The stamping is done using Barry M Gold Foil, my birthday MoYou stamper, and an old Cheeky plate CH13. I’m having a lot more success with the MoYou stamper than my old Konad one, it seems squishy stampers suit my nails better.
The stamping was not perfect, a few blobs missing here and there. I tried to fill in with polish – I need a finer brush! Yet another thing on my want list.
It doesn’t look anywhere near so bad in real life, thank goodness! The gold studs are from Born Pretty Store, I bought them ages ago and never got round to using before now. They are a little big for my curvy nails, I’m surprised that they are still attached to be honest, the amount I’ve caught them on things today! (Edit – I lost 2 before 24hrs was up) I blobbed on top coat to place them, then top coated (HK Girl G&G) all over to keep in place.
Overall I’m quite pleased with this mani – and as a bonus, it matches my handbag!
I love how the holo shines out from the stamping, in the rare moments of sunshine we have. It makes my heart happy 🙂 I am easily pleased!
Freckles Polish is available from Julie Ann’s Etsy store. Barry M is available from Boots, Superdrug and larger Tesco stores. I got the Cheeky plates from Amazon marketplace.
Till next time,
