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!

My Favorite Nail Art Stamping Plates for Christmas 2017!

Hiya stamperistas,
Happy post thanksgiving dolls I apologize for the delay in this post I had an unexpected hospitalization sigh but I'm back!  Now its time for my annual favorites of Christmas.  I say annual but y'all know I'm hit or miss on that jazz.   Here's my first post cataloging all my Xmas favorites. Lets talk about how Christmas is my favorite holiday of all time!  I love the lights, the scarves, the warmth of hot cider and yummy apple brandy, and of course the smell of pine needles and spiced candles is everywhere.  For me its an irresistible combination.  Its been love at first sight for years now. As such every year when new stamping plates release I realize that love all over again and I want to share it with you today so get ready!

First up and in no particular order....

Multi-Chrome Mirror Nails Pigment Abstract Stamped Nail Art + Tutorial!

Hey stamperistas,

Its already the end of November - insanity!  I feel like this last year has both dragged by and flown by and in someways has been incredibly testing and others quite joyful. Highs and lows?  Definitely the last two weeks have been leaping to say the least.  Thanksgiving has already passed us by  I'm still not not nearly ready to think about the holidays, but my nails are saying yes.  If my Black Friday purchases are anything to go by they are screaming winter/xmas now! Right now I'm leaning hard on my love of pigments, flakies, ultrachromes, holographic powders of varying microns, and of course glitter!  And nothing says winter like the above.  I'm going in easy this time with some abstract graphic featuring some duochrome mirror goodness!
