Hello lovelies,

 

I'm stamping again! This time I'm doing aztec print nail art that combines stamping, freehand painting and rhinestones. I call it stamp-paint method. It is basically using a stamped design as a guide, or complimentary design to freehand painting. It's meant to be different than the lead-lighting technique where you colour in empty parts of stamped design.

 

Let's have a look at what exactly I mean...

I started with painting two coats of SpaRitual Oracle. Then I stamped the aztec print using white nail polish and MoYou London stamping plate PRO XL collection 03. The next step was to paint yellow and blue patterns using acrylic paint. Lastly, I topcoated the nails and added rhinestones.

 

What do you think of this technique of freehand painting into stamping? I quite like the result :) It is a bit more difficult than creating stamping decals by filling in colours or the lead-lighting technique but it is also more versatile. If you try this technique then please tag me and let me know how you got on, I'd love to see your creation!

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

Hello lovelies,

I've realised that I haven't posted a single video tutorial last month! Let me make it up to you ;)

Today's nail art is a gradient I stamped over so it's nothing too complicated but I get asked for tutorials for simpler manicures so I did this one.

I have used OPI You’re So Vain-illa and Sorry I’m Fizzy Today for the gradient base. Then MoYou London PRO collection 14 XL and MoYou Nails black special nail polish for the stamping. My stamper is a soft silicone stamper from Winstonia Store.

 

I'm sure you've spotted that there are two different products with MoYou in them - they are two separate companies so don't confuse them. MoYou London has rectangular stamping plates, MoYou Nails has circular plates.

 

 

 

 

Simples, right? I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial and don't forget to let me know your thoughts in the comment. I'm wondering if I should skip showing products used and just list them in the description - what do you think about that?

 

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day! Lucie x
