Over the weekend, I guest blogged over on nuthinbutanailthing. Claire, has decided to feature a guest blogger every Sunday which I think is a great idea. Anyway, this is what I blogged about:
Today I have for you some simple stamped nail art on an A-England base colour. I hadn’t used A-England before but fell in love with their colours on Istagram. I ordered 3 colours directly from their website http://www.a-england.co.uk but have since found that you can buy them cheaper from www.hypnoticpolish.com if you spend enough money to justify the postage.
O.K, back to this mani – For the base colour I have used A England‘s ‘Kalinka’ from their ‘Russian Soul Collection’. It is a stunning lilac toned silvery metallic with hints of holographic. The formula was sightly thicker than your average indie polish so went on in two coats, in fact you could probably even just use one coat and be happy with it if you were in a rush.
For the stamping I used Models Own ‘Chrome Indigo’ with the Born Pretty transparent stamper (which is my current go to stamper) and MoYou London stamping plate ‘Time Traveller 05’. I’m still not great at stamping so it is a bit wobbly but I still liked the out come.
I’d love to know what your thoughts are on A-England polishes? as at present I only own three shades.
Not practical, but a bit of fun on my own nails. I used Fair Maiden Polish ‘Snake Charmer’ as my base colour, then stamped using Models Own ‘Chrome Rose’ with Steampunk plate 01. I then added the 3D elements, but they didn’t stay on for long.
Another attempt at stamping, this time I wanted to try a subtle effect. This is Models Own ‘Copper Pot’ base with Claires accessories ‘Gold Chain’ pattern using MoYou plate Pro Collection no 11. Have a lovely weekend all!
