I know, I know, I’m behind on Digital Dozen posts! I really love this theme so I’m going to try my best to get the last one done this weekend. For now, here is a quick stamped unicorn look. I don’t think it lives up to the other incredible unicorn looks posted by other Digital Dozen members this week, but at least it’s done. And, if you’re wondering why I’m a day behind, did you see my mega post yesterday with 10 stamped nail art looks? I reviewed 5 new stamping polishes and they’re all fantastic!
Back to today’s look – I actually did these about a month ago and hadn’t got around to posting them as I was on the fence about them. However, they are perfect for this theme, so I am finally sharing them with you.
Some items in this post were provided for honest review.
I am so excited to share this post with you! A short while ago, Nadia of Moonflower Polish approached me and asked me if I could showcase a few of her polishes on my blog. Of course I leapt at the opportunity! Most polishes made by Moonflower are intended as stamping polish, so of course they are perfect for me with all of the nail art I do. In fact, just the other day I was thinking that I needed something fresh in my stamping repertoire and purchased a few new plates. These stamping polishes were perfect to add to that and I think you will like them too!
Today I have 5 brand new Moonflower polishes to share, the Vampy Cremes. These are releasing tomorrow morning, 23 February, at 9 am EST on the Moonflower Polish site. They are all dark creme bases with complementary colour shifting shimmers. They will be priced at $8 for a 15 ml bottle, or $38 for the set of 5. They are also available in mini bottles at $5 each or $23 for the set of 5. Do note that since these are highly pigmented, they may cause staining of nails, skin, or stampers; however I personally have not had any issues with staining while using these as stamping polishes.
I have tested each of these stamping polishes over both a light and a dark colour, so there are no less than 10 stamped looks to follow! It is a long, picture-heavy post, but worth it. Keep on scrolling to see how amazing each of the stamping polishes looks!
It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! Remember how I mentioned on Monday that dragons are always the first mythical creature that come to mind for me? Well, phoenix are rarely far behind. I love the whole concept of the phoenix, from its flaming body to its ability to resurrect. So today, I have done a phoenix-inspired drip marble.
It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! I am really loving what the other DD members have come up with so far – I’m looking forward to the rest of this week’s nail art! Yesterday, I started the theme off with some freehand dragon nail art. Today, I’ve gone for a far more delicate mythical creature – the fairy.
It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is Mythical Creatures. I am so excited for this one – I love fantasy and the mythical creatures that go along with it. I also think I’ve done at least a couple of good nail art looks for this week that I am excited to share with you! For my first look of the week, I went with the first creature I always think of associated with anything fantastical or mythical – the dragon!
I finally did some lacy stamping! This is something that I’m always meaning to do and never really get to. Or rather – I have done lacy stamping before, but I’ve always managed to avoid doing it over a nude base. Until now!
It’s Water Marble Wednesday! It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared a Wednesday water marble, and I’ve really missed creating these. Recently, Vapid Lacquer had a special purge sale to clear out old or imperfect stock, at steep discounts. I was able to pick up their Candy Shop collection of pastel neons during the sale at around half price. I don’t see anything wrong with mine, so I think they were just clearing out old stock. I had a feeling these would be perfect for water marbles, and I was right!
I have some simple but lovely silver stamping to share with you today! I did this nail art a couple of months ago, back when I shared swatches of Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades. I often like to add some stamping to a swatch, it’s a quick and easy way to create some pretty nail art!
