Lady Queen Halloween Stamping Plates

Hi lovelies!

I got two (yes, two!) manis for you today, both created with stamping plates I received from LadyQueen and both for Halloween! Let's start with the Haunted House manicure :)

BOO! Mhuahahahahahaaaaa! The stamping plate I used for this is HeHe 057. I stamped with Konad black over a saran wrap goo mess I created using a base of Essence "I'm The Boss", "Lilac Is My Style", Maybelling "Cool Touch", El Corazon 423/32 and Mod Lacquer "Stunned". I thought it would look like a toxic environment, lol ;) Of course, I had to mattify it all, because it makes most of you happy!

The second mani is with Hehe 010, an awesome plate with sugar skulls!

 I created decals with this plate and placed them over Incidental Twin "Ooky Redux". As you can see, they're really big, so they don't fit on short nails (unless you go artsy for parts off skull).
The plate stamps well, but my decal making skills had sort of vaporised that day.. I redid them a few times, but I kept messing up, so this'll have to do. I really did the best I could..

Lady Queen Halloween Decals

Hello lovelies!

A while ago, I was approached by webshop LadyQueen and they asked me to review some of their products. They offer a wide variety of nail art items, including lots of Halloween stuff, so I went kinda nuts in that area! Today I have some of their super cool water decals to show you:

Paisley Stamping

Hello lovelies!

Yesterday I had a job interview and this manicure was what I wanted to wear for it, were it not that it chipped off within a day and I couldn't redo it in time... I ended up wearing something else, of which the pics just were awful, so let's just look at the intended manicure here!

Friends on Friday

Hello lovelies!

I had the honour to do a kid's nails again, whoohoo! Last time I did them, I did Elmos. She was two back then, she's almost five now! Time goes by too fast. She's a Frozen fan, so I brought some Frozen colours. I didn't have the time to go all nail-art-y, so I just layered two pretties.

Halloween Decals - Mix 'n Match

Hi lovelies!

Recently BPS had a water decal super sale, so I got some plaid designed ones and one of the five patterns was orange and purple - Halloween colours! So I paired them with actual halloween decals and this is the result!

BPS Wine Red Stamping Polish

Hello lovelies!

Last new stamping polish this round, but I have a few more coming up soon! So stay tuned. The last one is a wine red beauty. I again decided to double stamp with it! Inspired by LoveVarnish :)

Paws By Eddie "Gamma Quadrant"

Hi lovelies!

Some indie love today! And with a new-to-me indie Paws By Eddie, a Dutch indie polish brand that I had not tried out before, shame on me! So it is about time and therefore I present "Gamma Quadrant":

More Wedding Pics!

Hello lovelies!

Remember my friend, who got married, whose nails I did? She sent me two wonderful photos that were taken by their photographer Tiemen Eskes. Rather than adding them to the previous post, I felt they deserved their own post. Now although the pictures are not mine, I still added my watermarks, because you know, sometimes people steal and the work displayed is still mine ;) But I gotta say, it pained me to alter these beautiful photos a lot...

My super sparkly guest post for Be Happy, Buy Polish!

Hello lovelies!

Jessica from Be Happy, Buy Polish just had a beautiful baby boy and therefore does not have a lot of time to do nails at the moment. Hence a lot of awesome bloggers are guest posting for her and today, that's me! So go check out my creation:

BPS Squishy Stamper, Green Stamping Polish & BP-L029

Hello lovelies!

Remember last night's sapphire beauty from Mod Lacquer? I decided to do a little stamping over it, since I had just received new stamping material from! I received 4 stamping polishes and their new super squishy stamper. So I put them up to the test, starting with the green one:

Mod Lacquer "Goodnight, Mod"

Hi lovelies!

More indie love from me today, and this time it is particularly heartfelt. It's about Mod Lacquer's last polish ever. You may remember Mod Lacquer from the amazing neons and holos that I got to review a few months ago. Not long after, Jennifer, the maker, unfortunately decided to close up shop. She offered one last polish to her fans. Honestly, Jennifer is one of the best holo makers out there; only fitting that her last polish is a beautiful flaming holo:

Friends on Friday - Weddings, weddings, weddings!

Hi lovelies!

I have done a few wedding related manis for friends recently and I'd like to show you! Let's start with the bride. She was so beautiful. And I am so honoured that I got to do her nails! She wanted something subtle, since she never wears nail polish. [Unfortunately, I didn't get to take pics, you know how those days go, too much is going on and there are too many guests. It's ok. Afterwards, the bride sent me phone pics. Super sweet!]

Some random stamping

Hello lovelies!

Those beautiful BCA polishes from Ms. Sparkle I showed you yesterday, required some stamping (it happens).
