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!

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.

Review: Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-156

Hi everyone!

I’m back to finish off the week with one more Born Pretty Store product review. This time it is for a stamping plate that is perfect for Autumn – plate BP-156. This is a small round plate with 4 different leafy designs. I have actually used this same plate for the Fall look I shared with you earlier this week. Today I have manicures using 2 more of the designs on the plate – so there is just one more gorgeous leafy pattern on the plate that I haven’t tried yet.

Water Marble Wednesday: Layered Neons and Black

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Today I’ve done another layered water marble. I did my first layered water marble a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve gone with a completely different look for this one. The one similarity is a colourful base marble topped with a single-colour layered marble.

The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Horror

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does story genres and it’s also Water Marble Wednesday! I have managed to combine both with an eerie dripping blood water marble to represent the horror genre.

Hi everyone!

The Digital Dozen Does Black Day 5: Holo Roses

Hi everyone!

Can you believe we’re already at the end of Digital Dozen week? This week has just flown by! I’m especially glad it’s Friday though – I didn’t have a particularly tough week, but for some reason I’m really tired out and I need a weekend!

For the final day of the Digital Dozen does black week, I’ve included the least colour of any day – just a little silver holo – over the black base. Let’s take a look! Painted Fingertips | Holo Roses for the Digital Dozen Does Black (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Black! So far I’ve shared two stamped looks exploiting the contrast between glossy and matte – one with pink accents, and the other with gold. Today I’m finally steering away from the stamping. I enjoyed the milky coffee water marble I did last week so much that I’ve decided to bring Water Marble Wednesday back for a while! I won’t be committing to posting a marble every single Wednesday, but I do have a couple lined up and ideas for a few more 🙂 I’m starting it off today with a black and clear water marble over a neon gradient.

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Matte with Gold Accents

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen Does Black. Yesterday, I showed you some matte on glossy black stamping with a pink accent. Today I’ve done something with a pretty similar idea behind it, even if the look itself is quite different. I’ve again combined matte and glossy finishes and added a splash of colour.
