Nails Inc - Porchester Square & Victoria Funky French Argyle

Hi hi all, Wednesday, woop! Half way through the week!

Funky french stamped mani going on today, I never usually like funky french on me as cause I like my nails a little too square for them (personal preference). But after swatching Nails Inc - Victoria it's vampy goodness totally reminded me of Fingers at Fingers Polish Mania. Which is why I chose to stamp with Nails Inc - Porchester Square and finish it off with a little French tip.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Nails Inc - Victoria
Stamping & French Colour: Nails Inc - Porchester
Image Plate: Konad M60
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails
And here's two coats of Victoria. A Third coat would've evened this out and made it super dark and sexy, but I wanted to keep it quite red.

Hope you're all keeping well =]

Over A Lilac Base - We Stamp On Sundays

Hi all, happy Sunday! Happy bank holiday weekend to my UK peeps. It doesn't make much of a difference to me as I've not been working Mondays for the last month. Still the weather is pretty nice out, so I'm going to grab an hour lazing in the sun reading :D

This week I've actually made time for the challenge over at Adventures In Stamping and I'm hoping to keep this up as I've missed doing these weekly challenges.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colours: Models Own - Utopia & Lilac Dream, Catrice - Dirty Berry
Stamping Colour: Miss Sporty - Raindrop
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM313
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails
Here's the base before stamping:

I started with two coats of Utopia and then dabbed all the colours randomly onto a piece of sponge to create the subtle mix. I had hoped Raindrop would've stamped a little more opaque, but I like the colour combo anyways.

And here's what I used:
L-R, Models Own - Utopia, Lilac Dream (in China Glaze bottle), Catrice - Dirty Berry, Miss Sporty - Raindrop

Hope you've all had a good weekend so far :]

Matte Denim

Hi all, yay Friday!

Today I have another mani that doesn't come with stamping. I had the best intentions to stamp over these, but a night out wrecked them before I got the chance. But I loved wearing these as they were with the little sparkle shining through the matte, and just the denim look in general.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Rough Sponged Colour: Color Club - Hydrangea Kiss
Top Coat: Rimmel - Matte Finish
Super blurry shot to see just how pretty Electric Lane is!
I had a day off yesterday, and it was actually the first day in almost 4 weeks where I've woke up and didn't feel remotely ill! And as I have no plans this weekend I may even get something productive done, maybe even some stamping!

Hope you all have a good'un!
