Hello! Today’s mani is one of those rare times that I actually plan something before I start. I really wanted to do some rainbow stamping so I picked through my MoYou London stamping polishes and came up with a rough rainbow of colours. I’m missing a red stamping polish, so I used a dark pink instead.
What I used:
- MoYou London White Knight
- Next White Noise (shimmery topper)
- MoYou London Prom Queen (dark pink), Bahamas Punch (yellow), Mint Condition (green), Sweet Wisteria (lilac) & Cool Pool (blue)
- MoYou London Pro XL plate 04
- HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat
I started with a coat of White Knight as a base, then added a coat of White Noise to add some sparkle. All good so far.
To do the rainbow stamping, I put a dot of each colour along the edge of my chosen image on the plate, then scraped the dots across the image. Sometimes it blended together to make extra shades (I can see orange, and a darker green) which was cool. My little finger is a bit splodgey – I didn’t scrape enough polish off before stamping.
The main problem I have with these is the actual image itself. The MoYou London XL plates are waaay to big for my nails, so you can’t make out what the pattern is. (Flowers, if you’re wondering) It looks like random splodges. Rainbow random splodges. It seems that MoYou London have scaled up the size of the patterns to make bigger images. I’m sure that works for some people. What I want though, is the same size patterns, but repeated or extended to make a bigger area. Does that make sense? As they are, the xl plates are pretty useless to me, and the standard ones are not quite big enough.
Anyway. My rainbows worked, so yay!
See you soon,
