Rolling out a little geometric magic for you today. Gotta say I've really been on a roll these days with my nail art wanting to try out a bunch of new things. Today I kept things classic and put a slight twist on it. The classic would be the abstract pattern from UberChic Beauty. The twist would be using my nail template from Messy Mansion to make some magic happen with that pattern. The colorway I chose also stays true to fall so I hope you like it!
Basecoat/Topcoat: UNT Peel Off Basecoat / Poshe Fast Drying Topcoat
Basecolor: OPI Atomic Orange, I Saw U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw, and I Saw Sao Paulo Over There
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Black (2)
Stamping plate: Uberchic Beauty UC 1-03
Stamping template: Messy Mansion Accessories Kit 2.0
This was my second time trying out the Messy Mansion templates. I bought the basic accessories kit 2.0 forever ago, but due to illness and timing I never really got to play with it the way I wanted to. This is important since I wanted to do a review on the use of the ingenious little kit. Personally I do think any reviewed item needs to be played about with quite a bit especially one of this kind before I can give you a solid opinion. So far I really like these little doodads. *Adds to pile of reviews in the making lol*
The shapes for the template are varied but include stars in 2 sizes, single and stacked chevrons, straight lines, french tips, and more! These plates are very thin and precisely etched so you get exactly the portion of the image you want with whatever placement you want. Gotta love it!
Tutorial! Lol no idea why I'm so excited at all. I did have a lot of fun creating this though so that's definitely part of it. I realized I hadn't created a decal style mani in a bit and even though they are labor intensive the results are definitely worth it.
So what do you think? Today I was looking at another blogger that I follow, non-stamping ;), and realized my hand poses are really static so I need to work on changing that up a bit. It feels like the minute I get something a bit more perfected there is something else I want to work on improving blog/photography wise. I will say though I think my photography has moved up another notch. Anyhoo you can find UberChic Beauty stamping plates on their website. The Messy Mansion templates can be found in the Accessories 2.0 kit here. Happy hunting and I'll see you next post....
