More sponging and stamping.

Hi Friends, I hope everyone is well.

The weather has been so nice here recently.  That's one reason why my photos look different. I'm trying to make the most of the natural sunshine and my light box is in tatters (still) because I haven't had time to mend it!

I have a nice one for you today. Okay, I think it's nice anyway.  I was having a look at this blog the other day and it got me thinking; why haven't I tried to layer my stamping? Something I'd done before, but not intentionally. It's so simple and it makes perfect sense, so I thought I'd step up my stamping game.

Here ya go.

 This is NYC's 'Times Square', two coats.

L-R: Wet n Wild 'Tipsy (one layer), Sally Hansen Nail Prisms 'Golden Cinnebar' (sponged on first up to mid-nail), Essence Metallics 'Copper Rulez!' (sponged on tips)

BM14 (stars) and BM19 (circles) stamped with Models Own Goldigger

I loved this until I tore my middle finger and had to patch it. I hate patches but I'm trying to grow my nails out.  I'm so fed up of short nails that I've even been toying with the idea of acrylics again :-0!! I don't think I will though.



  1. Oh, I love how unique this design looks! So pretty~^^

  2. I love this! I have never seen poopy browns used better lol. They aren't poopy at all, I'm jk. I love that pop of color (Times Square) with the gold though :)

    JUST SAY NO TO ACRYLICS! lol ... because then eventually you'll just have to grown those babies out when you take them off. Stick with the real deal :)

  3. WOW this is such a pretty mani ^_^
    I adore the colors you used together, and the stamping is way cute.
    I'm a new follower. (:

  4. First of all, NO acrylics, snap out of it :)
    Your nails are the perfect length :)

    This nail design is amazing, it reminds me of gift-wrapping paper, so complex :)

  5. WOW! I love it! The design looks like it's always been a stick on nailpolish sticker things that you can get nowadays! That's how good it is!!

  6. I like the idea of double stamping,thanks for sharing!
    I am using Essence nail fix thingy and it works wonders to fix broken nails

  7. Thanks ladies. Don't worry, I think the acrylics thing is just me have a mad moment. I'm never ever satisfied when other people do them and I hate paying to get my cuticles chewed up with e-files!!

    @Beauty, we don't have Essence in the UK so I'll have to stick with my fibreglass wraps for now :-(
