Lol yeah not quite, but I'm looking forward to the warm up! In that spirit I got this little mani going today. The truth is I wish I could say - "Oh I wanted to create some spring seasonal nail art" when in fact I just really love the combination of nude and lavender. Plus I really wanted to take my new UberChic Beauty plates out for a test drive since I just reviewed them yesterday. You can take a look at that review here if you haven't seen it already. Now let's take a look at this nail art ;)
Essie Urban Jungle and China Glaze Tart-y For The Party
Glaze: UberChic Magic Dust in Mad Hatter
Leadlight polishes: OPI Don't Violet Me Down, Be Magentele With Me, and Sally Hansen Grape Jelly
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Black (2)
Stamping plate: UberChic UB 1-03
Accent: Gold bullion beads
Ok yeah this is sweet right? Very delicate and soft. Softer even than I imagined in turning out despite using a black stamping polish over the gradient. Initially I thought of using another color but could not find one that contrasted well enough with the polishes I used for leadlighting. Speaking of I cannot tell you how much I truly dislike these Sheer Tints from OPI! They turn into a thick stringy mess the less than 20 seconds outside of the bottle. Gah! How am I supposed to work like that? So thick! That's why initially I ended up making my own which I still prefer, but I didn't have a purple that was in the correct color way. Sigh....let's talk about something that actually worked....
Normally I will not create nail art for a brand of plates before I post a review, but I could not stand it any longer staring at this flower. The flower drove me to do this. Even though I posted the review yesterday for those that follow me on Instagram you may have gotten a side peek of this already. As a bonus I also decided to create a little tutorial for this nail art as well. You can watch it below ;).
So what do you think? Sigh...I love you so much right now Brittany! UberChic Beauty plates and magic dust are available on the UberChic website now. I hope to see a reddish tinted magic dust in the future cause jeez the ones I have are just gorgeous! PS have you guys noticed a change in my photography recently? What do you think? I'm still making some adjustments until I get it all sorted out, but I'm interested to see what my readers think. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next post....
