Hello lovelies,

 

I'm SO EXCITED to share today's post with you! The secret is out - I have designed a stamping plate in collaboration with Bundle Monster! My own plate, yay! This collaboration has started back in April so I had to keep this under the wraps and believe me, it wasn't easy!

 

I was surprised and honoured that Bundle Monster approached me with proposal to design my plate and I was even more appreciative after I found out there are only 10 of us doing this project (I hope there will be more in the future though)! I instantly started to think about the direction in which to take the designs. I've decided to translate my love for florals and patterns into this plate. You can find some hard-to-do zentangle patterns, a kaleidoscope-like floral design, pretty feathers and more! Many of them are great for creating stamping decals or for the leadlighting technique.

 

Without further ado, this is my plate:

It's so nice to see my blog name on the plate as well! The plate itself is numbered BM-XL209 and it has 12 different designs in XL size so it nicely fits longer nails like mine. It is etched very well and each one stamped beautifully for me (stamped designs below with B. Loves Plates B. a Twilight stamping polish).

Above is just a basic monochrome stamped manicure ready for some leadlighting. I've used Morgan Taylor Chrome Base and Hit The Bottle As Black as Night stamping polish.

 

What Bundle Monster says about the plate:

 

"It is so easy to fall in love with this ultra feminine collaboration nail plate created by Lucy's Stash (BM-XL209)! Get gorgeous details and fine lines with ease using this girly nail plate. We are uber excited how this XL stamping plate came out, and us at Bundle Monster and Lucy's Stash hope to see you rocking these designs on your newest nail art manicures soon!"

 

I've of course done more than just one manicure with 'my' plate so here's next one where I've tested this plate a bit more:

I have opted for full feathery design where the background peeks out through the silver. Again, the image stamped beautifully and I had absolutely no issue which makes me really happy! For this manicure I have used three 'Ard As Nails polishes in Juju, Blogger Girl and Bex Smiles. They all had very nice formula and worked well for the gradient background. Then I stamped over it with China Glaze Millennium. What do you think of the result..and my collab plate?

 

You can buy Bundle Monster + Lucy's Stash BM-XL209 as a single plate for $4.99 or in a set of five for $15.99 (currently sold out, expected restock mid-November). Thank you Bundle Monster for such amazing opportunity and stamping plate!

Hello lovelies,

 

It's time for a nail art challenge! I'm part of a Facebook group called PAINT ALL THE NAILS and this month's challenge is double stamping. I admit to cheating a bit because I've filled flowers with gold polish as stamped decals, not just pure stamping. But I'm pretty happy with the result so let's have a look at the manicure ;)

How to achieve this look:

 

  1. Apply a coat of base coat on clean dry nails
  2. Paint the nails with two coats of grey polish, I've used 'Ard As Nails Slated
  3. Then using B. Loves Polish Colour Alike stamping polish in B. a Twilight and chevron pattern from B.01 ♥ geometry is perfect ♥ stamping plate, stamp on the charcoal chevrons
  4. Next create the stamping decals, gold roses framed with white. Stamp roses from B.02 ♥ flower power ♥ plate with white Essence stamping polish onto B. Loves plates XL stamper and leave it to dry a minute.
  5. Then fill in the roses with gold B. Loves Polish Colour Alike stamping polish in B. a Golden Queen
  6. Once it dries paint a layer of topcoat over the decal and let it dry again. I've used Seche Vite top coat
  7. Once the decal is dry, peel it off the stamper and lightly press it on the nail freshly painted with topcoat
  8. Apply another layer of topcoat over the whole nails and decals
  9. Cut off the excess pieces of the decal with scissors and then clean up the rest with brush and acetone

 

I've also played with matte topcoat (Cuccio Matte Topcoat) and the matte version looks great, so I want to share it with you as well:
