Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Festive Expansion, Fashionista Expansion, & Sailor Expansion!

Hey stamperistas,

MoYou London has released a few more plates over this month for both Halloween and just in general.  I have to say the Halloween plates were brilliantly done as was the Sailor Expansion.  I've never really been a fan of the Fashionista Collection, but I'm sure their latest creation coming from that set will sell well given that its focused on paisley which has been very popular of late on plates along with plaid.

Black Chrome Galaxy Foil Nail Art + Tutorial!

Hey stamperistas,

I'm really trying to get my blog and other social media switched over to the spook-tacular mood of Halloween.  As you know my health has been pretty crummy and what I have found is its also slowed me down so tremendously.  Filming, photographing, etc is taking me longer than I had anticipated but despite that I still want to try and make this October special and share all the nail art & creations I've thought of with you.  Its one of my favorite holidays and its always bummed me out that I haven't been able to use as many of my plates as I would like.   This year I want to do as much as possible so I started with a galaxy look.  I know this is definitely not classic Halloween but I also wanted to think about looks that would go with specific costumes and when I was playing around with my plates this sort of came together.  Its very funky & very non-traditional and I hope you like it!

My Favorite Plates for Halloween 2018!

Hey stamp champs,
Nothing To Disclose

Its been a quiet week so I must apologize.  I haven't been feeling very well this last week and instead my bones have been shaking & quaking and causing me more & more problems as the week progressed until yesterday when I could barely move around in my home and ended up sleeping most of the day and taking medications.  I'm finally starting to feel a little bit better today so I thought I better get my  my annual favorites for Halloween post up since unbelievably its already the 24th of September!  Last year I did an updated post from my very first Halloween favorites back in 2014 (wow - ancient!) and this year I thought I would continue the tradition and show you some new plates that have caught my eye and made me go yes please!  Some you will have to get on the ball to order immediately if they are going to make it to you in time, but trust when I say they will be UTTERLY worth it.

Simples: Scattered Fall Foiled Abstract Nail Art

Hey stamperistas,
  Press Sample

How is everyone?  It was a quiet weekend!  I was in a lot of pain thanks to the hurricane that is battering the east coast currently.  The rain makes my legs & chest ache in ways that make it difficult for me to do more than cower in bed with ice and NSAIDs unfortunately.  However I did have time to create a few cute looks that were more fall inspired.  Generally I love the fall.  For me fall means it's time for rich golds and bold color choices.  There's so much I want to do but I know I don't have the stamina to do everything so I decided I'm definitely going to be sharing more of my nail art but not necessarily creating tutorials for everything I create.  This is something I talked about a few posts back especially for the more simple nail art I create unless its requested.  This nail art came about because I really wanted to break out my rich gold polishes that were shimmering as well as some of my Orly Satin Hues.

Super Girly Neon Geometric Nail Art + Tutorial!

Hey lacqueristas,

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!  You guys know generally I don't follow the rules if I did I would never create the things I love when I love them.  What do I mean by that? Well the summer if over and the fall with its PSL drool inducing moments is upon us, BUT whatever.  Its still hot as hell in DC & I felt this neon pink polish calling to me.  Therefore I've got what may be one last hot and sizzling summer nail art before we start the switch up!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Porcelain Collection, Doodles Expansion, & Price Increase?

Hola stamperistas,
Nothing To Disclose

Happy Friday again!  I have a lot of releases to share with you guys as fall is around the corner and upcoming holidays companies are starting to release their seasonal collections and new curations.  Now this is both exciting and horrifying because it definitely means having to budget your monies accordingly to make the most of the new releases and art.  Its hard enough being a stamping addict but when you combine that with being a polish addict as well things get hairy.  MoYou London has put out an entirely new collection last week and your girl also noticed that along with this new collection the prices seem to be on the rise as well.
