It's time for Paint All The Nails monthly nail art challenge! This month's theme is Monochrome and we're only using black, white and grey colours. I've decided to recycle one of my NAFW manicures because otherwise I wouldn't have time to create whole new nail art for the challenge. But I'm pretty pleased about how it came out and most of you won't probably even recognize the previous nail design ;)
Let''s have a look at the nail art...
I've used Color Club French Tip (use STASH15 for 15% discount) on half of the nail and then feathered it with brush strokes to get uneven look and then I've stamped over with Hit The Bottle As Black As Night stamping polish. The pattern comes from Moyra Damask Drapery stamping plate. This plate is full of amazing designs and I'd like to thank again Lenka from Mikrosvet by Ellen for gifting it to me :)
I like that the white is changing into the negative space underneath the stamping, it certainly makes the manicure little bit more unusual. What do you think of this 'recycled' manicure?
Have a lovely day and don't forget to check out nail art from other bloggers:
Today I want to show you one of the promised manicures with Morgan Taylor CHROME collection. It's actually the marbled nail art I've shown you in the review but I've stamped over it and it looks EPIC! (probably not to you but I still love it ;)
I've divided post into two part - firstly I'll show you the nail art and how to recreate it with my video tutorial and then I'll review the Bundle Monster Shangri-La stamping plate collection I've used for this look.
Wow, I just can't get over how bright, busy and colourful this look is! I was loving the plain marble nail art too but it looks even cooler with the stamping in my opinion - what do you think?
I have used all the polishes from Morgan Taylor CHROME collection to create the marble, the colours are:
Chrome Base (silver metallic)
Sunset Yellow Appliqué (yellow)
Amber Rush Appliqué (orange)
Cherry Appliqué (cherry red)
Royal Appliqué (royal purple)
Ultra Marine Appliqué (rich blue)
Ivy Appliqué (green)
Then I've stamped over the nails with Hit The Bottle Snowed In (white) stamping polish and the Bundle Monster Shangri-La stamping plates BM-S101 and BM-S108.
I just had to record a tutorial for this look because it looks difficult but it's in fact very easy to re-create. I would love to see your manicures inspired by this tutorial so please do tag me @lucysstash or #lucysstash so I can check them out!
Here's how to do it:
Now I want to show you the Bundle Monster Shangri-La collection which consists of 10 small square stamping plates. Each plate is fully etched so you can stamp any portion of the design 'buffet style'. The plates come in a plastic pouch and each has the blue protective foil so please don't forget to remove it before stamping ;) All plates are etched well and all stamped very nicely, I didn't have any issues in that sense.
This collection is full of abstract designs ranging from mehndi and paisley style to zentangle and geometric-like styles. I really like them all but I definitely prefer and reach for the floral and paisley-like plates. To me they are a bit more feminine and prettier.
I wanted this stamping plates collection since it came out and it didn't disappoint me. It offers such great variety and I can see great possibilities for ledlighting designs, simple overlay of stamping over plain or colourful background (like I did above) and more! Well done Bundle Monster on this great set!
