Moonflower Polish | Vampy Cremes Stamping

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

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!

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Phoenix

Hi everyone!

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.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Fairy Nails

Hi everyone!

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.

The Digital Dozen Does Mythical Creatures | Dragon Nails

Hi everyone!

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!

Water Marble Wednesday: Pastel Neons

Hi everyone!

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!

Hi everyone!

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!

Review – Born Pretty Store Glow in the Dark Nail Pigment

Hi everyone!

Today I have some nail art and a review of some glow in the dark nail pigment from Born Pretty Store. I was really excited to try this pigment as I thought it could be great for a variety of nail art. I figured that I may need a gel base for this glow in the dark powder, so I decided to just use it over the magnetic gel polish I recently shared.

Black, White and Red Drip Marble featuring Hypnotic Top Coat | January Theme Week

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my very first theme week so far! I know I have. In case you missed it, earlier this week I posted a pink and blue drip marble, a purple drip marble along with a video tutorial, and a turquoise and nude drip marble. I’m finishing it off with a drip marble in black, white and red, and I’m also testing out the Sinful Colors Hypnotic top coat in a drip marble for the first time.
