ILNP Pucker Up

My first mani with Pucker Up, from the new @ilnpbrand Summer Shimmer collection. I decided to use the polish that I felt like I would use the least, first. I don't often go for bright pink shades like this, but it's perfect for the weather we are having here in SoCal.  Bright and summery 😎

I wanted to add some random bright flowers. I looked through every stamping plate I own, and couldn't find what I was looking for πŸ™„ So I went with these little flower images on the center of UberChic plates 4-03, 5-02 and 7-02. 

Hope you like it, and if you are interested in seeing the how I made it video, please check out my IG: @mrsluckyboy85

Black and White damask

Today's prompt for #clairestelle8july is fabric inspired. I was pressed for time, so decided to go with a simple black and white damask design. Classy and elegant.

The base is Orly White Tips, stamped with MDU Black. The pattern is from plate VL4, which I got from Ali Express.

As per usual you can find the 'how to' video on my IG.

Paint splatter for #clairestelle8july

This is a first for me πŸ˜€ Paint splatter, sounds like something my kids would be right into. Not me though, I hate messy things 😬
Armed with my fingertipless rubber glove, I decided to give it a go πŸ˜„

I found a metallic watercolor palette at Target recently, and thought this would be perfect for paint splatter. Easier to clean up right?
I started with a matte white base, because water paint seems to stick easier to matte polish. I slipped on my glove and covered up with liquid latex. A very wet paintbrush, and I just tapped off the paint onto my nails. Easy. The best part was the excess just washed off!

I stamped over it with an image from UberChic plate 4-03, because I can't leave anything unstamped 😁

For a quick look how I created this mani, please head on over to my IG for a short video tutorial.
