Pick n Mix challenge: 3 dark colors

I love dark colors and vampy ones are my favorite! I wanted to make layers of dark feather stamps - but my camera was just not picking them up as they looked in real life :( But the nails still look pretty thou they look more like layers of fish scales stamps.

The base is Catrice Black to the roots. The stamps are made with Chine glaze Tounge & chic, Don't make me wine. The plates I used are MM14 and MM08.

MoYou London review - Fashionista 08

I got the great honor to work with the amazing stamping plate company MoYou London again. They relay dominate the stamping market. I am obsessed with the damask wallpaper type of patterns since forever. And when I saw this Fashionista 08 plate I fell in love! It is the most amazing collection of 3 different sized patterns. I just had to make a romantic vampy fall mani full of beautiful dark colors <3  


Here is the plate with the sleeve and a close up of the patterns.



As always the plates are etched perfect the pictures pick up perfectly. And they fit my tiny nail beds quite nicely. 



For this mani I used Misslyn Purple rain as base. The stamps are done with Dashica Red and Essence stamp me! black.



So ladies if you share my damask obsession and want some amazing vampy manis head on over to MoYou London

Sunday stamping: Zombie bunnies

This weeks Sunday stamping challenge in AiS was freestyle Halloween mani. I just wanted to do something cute and in classic colors - orange, purple, black and green. And how adorable are zombie bunnies that go BOOH? <3

For this mani I used OPI Where did Suzis man-go?, Catrice Be my Violetine and made some linear gradients. Then I made some distressed black tips with Essence stamp me! black which is perfect for this since the bottle was quite empty and every stroke was a perfect distressed line. The stamps are done with Essence stamp me! white and Mundo de Unas polish. The plate I used is MoYou London Sci fi 01





Who said Halloween nails can't be adorable :)

You can never have enough skeletons in your closet

I love Halloween time because my skull and bones fetish is finally not frowned upon for a short time. And this year I was not completely broke when the 'costumes' hit the stores. I already have a lot of skull and crossbones clothes but now I finally got the chance to create a full skeleton look :)

The gloves and the stockings were supposed to be glow in the dark but from what I saw so far they didn't glow. Maybe they are one of those that need to be exposed to light 1st. So to put this skeleton look together as a simple idea for a Halloween costume :)

Here is the complete look that includes skeleton gloves, stockings and a rainbow galaxy skeleton sweather. Some lace shorts and huge dark eye make up. To show off the feet bones I wore some opened toe shoes - which might not be a very good idea for an actual night out since it's getting cold out there. I also got these crazy eye candy that fits perfectly to my close up image the the best bone details :)



I fell in love with the new Book of life movie trailer and it inspired this look a bit :)


Here is another picture of the outfit with the gloves a bit more exposed <3

Do you ever want to wear a simple version of a Halloween costume in every day life?

Pick n Mix challenge: Grey + color

I adore the color gray in any combination with a bright color. But the best partner for gray is yellow in my opinion :) I had this amazing Arcane lacquer called State of grace for a while and now it's time to make it shine. Since it's quite sheer I made a stampwich with some Mundo de Unas polishes and hehe 005 plate. I added some studs from Bornpretty store on the accent finger since I thought it needed something extra.

I kind off like how it turned out - all pretty, shimmery and subtle :)



Here is a swatch of Arcane lacquer State of grace. It's a gray jelly with gold shimmer and gold shards. It's a bit on the sheer side so I used a layer of white polish as base.



If you want any of the amazing Arcane lacquers head on over to her etsy store :)
