Hello lovelies,

 

Today's post is about stamping and a massive Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate! I have been testing it for quite a while and now I'm ready to share my experience with you.

 

Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate is a buffet-style plate so there are many more design combinations you can create other than just each separate image.

 

The first time I've properly tried this plate on nails was over my Azature Pink and White Diamond manicure. I thought a simple zebra pattern would beautifully highlight the glitter base colours. I've used Creative Stamper and Konad Black stamping polish. The plate worked nicely and the zebra pattern transferred very well and almost perfectly. The pattern on the plate is quite large so I got away with using half of the pattern on one nail therefore making the stamping and cleaning much faster.

The Fireworks Festival plate is covered in a blue foil to protect it and it also comes in a light blue cardboard cover to protect the plate in transit.

 

"This plate measures 7"x9.5" (18x24cm) with sanded edges and backing for easy, comfortable handling and a protective nylon screen. The plate is made from high grade stainless steel and backing to prevent scratching during storage."

 

I really struggle with photographing stamping plate patterns because I always end up with camera/lamp/mine reflection. I have tried to capture all images on the plate for you and I've also test-stamped some of the image parts using the Creative stamper:

I love different patterns and floral patterns and there are plenty on this plate. Sometimes I don't like buffet-style plate when the pattern areas are so small that they don't cover whole nail but luckily, I haven't had that problem here. Overall, I'm very happy with this plate, it doesn't have any badly etched areas or mistakes and it stamps nicely.

 

If you would like to buy the Fireworks Festival or any other plate, you can do so at the Pueen website here.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

Today's nails are a bit crazy but let's give them a chance! I have been playing around with the new Models Own Festival collection that is full of bright neon polishes. I also got some Pueen Vinyl Nail Stencil Set to try so I've used swirls from it to achieve today's look:

I have started with two coats of Models Own Green Fields and a coat of Seche Vite top coat. This helps to dry the polish faster so that I can use the stencils without ripping off the nail polish below (always allow around 10 minutes to dry).

 

Next I've placed the Pueen swirl stencils on nails exactly where I wanted them. Just before I painted each nail with coat of Models Own Purple Bandana, I've pressed the stencil on the nail again to make sure it's not peeling off anywhere. Straight after painting the nail I've removed the stencil as it helps with creating crisp lines. Once dry a bit I've sealed all nails with Seche Vite top coat.

 

And of course the pictures under UV light are my favourite (I finally got a replacement UV torch!). These polishes glow super bright! What do you think? Too crazy? I like crazy ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
