Floral Nail Art: Advance stamping decals

Made some advance stamping decals while taking a short holiday at one of the hill stations nearby.

Forgot to carry small scissors and tweezers. Had to make do with some rather uneven scissors found in my dads shaving kit! hence the awkward cutting around my decals.
Nonetheless loved the bright cheery colour combination.
Base: Faces matte Ibiza (orange) and maybelline sweet sunshine (yellow)
Stamping plate: Cici and Sisi 03
filled the decal with a mix of acrylics and polish
topped with SV

see ya soon!

Frozen Movie Nail Art ft. Olaf

Frozen Movie Nails!!

Did them for a niece's frozen themed birthday party. I was so excited to go to that..and good fun it was. Although I cant remember what polishes I used for the gradient base I topped them with kleancolor matter glitter (in I Do, Romeo) and freehanded Olaf using acrylics.
I love how goofy his grin turned out!
For the thumb I tried to stamp a snow flake, but the blue stamping polish was too goopy.

Flash Tattoo Nail Art

Flash Tattoos have become such a rage. Easy to apply and takes practically no time to glam you up.
These go well on nails too. Got mine from for Rs.225/- a sheet (click link to flash tattoos). 

Instructions for the decals are given on the back of the sheet. Simply cut the desired part, apply on skin and dab it with wet cloth. I did the same on my nails and then applied a top coat so it stayed put.

Base: Mystical Peacock from LiquidSky Lacquer (ordered mine from (color4nails)
Ring Finger: Flash Tattoo in Gold from ChicAccessorizer
Middle Finger: freehand stripe
Thumb Pointer and Pinky finger: Stamped with BM 423 and BM 403
Stamping: Maybelline Bold Gold
Topped with SV

These are what the sheet look like:

Geometric Nail Art : Advance stamping technique

Hear Hear! I tried stamping decals again after my earlier disastrous effects..encouraged by my friend Puja from She does some real fab designs. And mine turned out way better than what I thought. So yeah I am on a stamping decal roll!
Once you get the hang of this thing its quite addictive :p

Base: Maybelline Colorshow Black out
Filled the design with: Models Own Turquoise Gloss, Faces Matt Ibiza, Yellow is Maybelline Sweet Sunshine
Stamping Plate: Cici and Sisi 04
Stamping polish: Konad Black 

These are my decals on the stamp. Left them to dry for half an hour and lifted them from the sides. Came out quite nicely and as you can imagine I placed a few orders for more such stamping images that can be filled and squishy stampers too.

See ya soon!
