Chrome & Flakies Nail Art + Tutorial

Hiya stamp champs,

Its been so long since I've painted my nails and to top things off I am fully on the "shorties" train!  I can't remember the last time my natural nails were this short but it is related to the fact that I've been so ill my nails haven't really been growing.  Also when I have had growth my nails have broken quickly.  This is the first time I'm experiencing a problem with sustaining my nail growth so I'll be posting some tips on how I'm getting my growth jump started again soon.    Anyway even though they are short they are still my nails and I still want them to be cute.  I'm finally breaking out some of my Black Friday purchases.  Yup....way back from Black Friday but give a girl a break I'm definitely so far behind in everything and doing some super simple super pretty stamping.

Updates & Coming Back!

Hi everyone,
Nothing To Disclose

How I've missed this space - it has literally been so long!  I'm so sad that I haven't been able to actively blog, communicate, & share my love of nail art, polish, etc with you all through much of the tail end of last year and most of the first half of this one.  I wanted to come back today because I'm finally in a place where I've processed some things and I'm able to share with you all what has been going on for those of your that remain and shockingly those of you who are newcomers despite my radio silence.

Chirality Polish The Velvet Death Swatches (Polish Pickup Sugar Rush)

Hey lacqueristas,
Press Sample

Long time no chat!  I'm sorry I've been absent lately if you follow me on IG you know that I've been hospitalized and dealing with some serious health related matters at the top of the year which have frankly sucked.  I had not really been feeling well enough to blog but when I was offered the opportunity to swatch a Valentines Day related polish called The Vellvet Death by the the lovely of Chirality I thought it was a good opportunity to get back into the swing of things and also get back in touch with my love of polishing and nail art in general.

Let's talk about this beautiful polish! The Velvet Death was inspired, as Amanda describes it, by ravishing Skull shaped Red Velvet Cake. 'The Velvet Death' has a sparkly silver-grey base with pinkish red shimmer and red microflakes.  I'll show you that inspo below!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Lina Nail Art Supplies Stamping Plates!

Hi stamp champs,

I've got a some down time happening while I recover my health so I figured I'd spend today catching up on all of the major plate releases I've missed.  I'm gonna go back to Lina Nail Art Supplies.  Her seasonal hits tend to be very popular and it seems this release is no exception.

Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Festive Collection Expansion, Scandi Collection Expansion, Princess Collection Expansion, and Minimal Collection Expansion

Hey stamping addicts

Alright stamp champs here are the latest releases that MoYou London churned out of the last couple of months.  Not nearly as many as I thought and while some are absolute hits there are a few misses as well.  If you are planning your holiday shopping for your favorite stamping addict this posting may help you to pull out the newest releases from this platemaking powerhouse  So without too much halaballouh let's get into it!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Sugar Bubbles Nail Art Stamping Plates!

Hey stamperistas,
Nothing To Disclose

I'm just gonna release a buttload of new plates that hit while I've been out of commission today.  I'll start with one of my favorite platemakers Sugar Bubbles. She released these plates about two months ago sort of peri-Halloween.  I knew I was going to be too late to grab them up for Halloween since these plates are located in Brazil and shipping can take a while, BUT as with every Sugar Bubbles release these were worth the wait!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New UberChic Beauty Radiate Love, Vacation Mode, Fairy Tale 2, Texturelicious 3, Lovely Leaves 2, Zombie Love 2, Lovely Leaves 2, Halloween 3, Got Chevrons, Holiday Jingle, and Collections 18, 19, 20, 21 & 22!

Sup stamparistas,
Nothing To Disclose

Talk about a brand I'm behind in and UberChic Beauty will be at the top of the list.   Unfortunately or fortunately depending of you are and your budgeting Brittany releases plates like mad!  It means I can never ever keep up with all her wares on a bad day or a good one.  I'm behind on the last collection but because of my blog posts I know exactly where I left off.  And as it's fall she has also released several of her single release plates and mini's.  As usual quality is never the question with this brand its merely picking out the plates that make your heart strings sing and going from there! So since this is a mega post I'm just gonna dive right in!
