Pueen 2014 Stamping Buffet Geometric Gradient Nail Art + Bubblelina Signature

Lacqueristas,

Happy Sunday! Guess what?  I freaking finally got my new Pueen 2014 Stamping Buffet plates!  Yay it took so long even though I ordered them what feels like dog years ago from Amazon.  In any case they are here and I am happy and so I am spreading that happiness from me to you in the form of some gradient nail art. Btw you may have noticed but my pictures are changing around here as I get the hang of my new camera and editing software.  I'm hoping for some big improvements on all of my sites in terms of photo quality, but please pardon my inexperience while I'm getting things perfected.

I chose to break out a new indie brand that caught my eye on Instagram Bubblelina Nail Polish.  This lady knows her way around a thermal and so I ordered 3 polishes including the one I'm wearing today called Signature.  Signature is pink to purple thermal with extremely hard to see blue microglitter.  It's pink when warm and purple very reminiscent of Color Club's Puccilicious when warm.  What blew me away with this polish is that formula is amazing!  Smooth like butter, self leveling, and essentially a ONE COATER.  You know how excited I get about those, but I put down 2 to make sure I had a extra layer for stamping mishaps.

Now for the Pueen Cosmetics plate.  I can tell already this collection is going to be so tricky for stamping newbies.  Why? Because it was tricky for me and I already have a tons of tricks up my sleeve to deal with difficult to stamp plates.  Not that it's difficult, but I noticed if I was aiming for a distinct pattern on the plate I would often pick up the borders of other designs that were unwanted.  Another issue some of the designs within the plate weren't long enough for my nails.  That said the quality of this plate is nothing short of the excellence I have come to expect from Pueen.  I won't bother with a review since I've seen about 10 out there already, but I think a Youtube troubleshooting video maybe be necessary.

 So thoughts? I love the shift of Signature layered with the gradient effect.  I had a lot of fun putting this mani together! Stay tuned for my review of the Loja BBF plates on the horizon they arrived on my doorstep yesterday and I was like YAY! Lol as I think my instagram followers can attest too.  Thanks so much for reading and I'll see you next post!

  1. Oh, how I wish I could have long nails (job does not allow it). I bought two thermals a few years ago, but because my nails are short, I never saw the color change. The color change looks like an awesome gradient, without all the extra work of making one!

    I am so in love with these plates! I can see where it would be difficult to get a single pattern from the plate to cover longer nails. I have difficulty getting what I consider to be the most gorgeous stamping image ever made on my Mo-You London Suki # 7 (from her sleeve) onto my tiny nails. I have to make a decal from the image, and I can't resist filling the flowers with color. So time consuming, but I do love the end result.

    1. Yeah the decals are pretty tough its hard to create something with a lot of detailing when you are filling it in but I agree it's totally worth it. What's funny though is that even when my nails were short I've always seen my thermals shift but it's also because my nail beds even with nubbins are fairly long!
