Holographic Wildflowers & Swirls Nail Art + Tutorial

Yo stamperistas,

Press Sample

Super simple super pretty nail art for you guys today! Today's nail art is like an almagamation of a lot of brands I love - Emily de Molly, Liquid Sky Lacquer, and Marianne's Nails.  A perfect trifecta?  I'd say yes especially when holo meets glitter in such a refreshing way!  Btw today's photos and video will be the first I've posted using my new set up.  I think things are getting sharper and better over here so I hope you enjoy :)

Basecoat/Topcoat: UNT Peel Off Basecoat / Sally Hansen Diamond Flash
Base color: Emily de Molly Dark Depths
Stamping polish: Liquid Sky Lacquer Holopaque
Stamping plate: Marianne Nails MN XXL 6
Stamper: Messy Mansion Crystal Stamper Ver 1.0

Dark Depths is stunning really!  As you shift your nails around you can see all the glitter sinking and swimming inside the blue jelly.  It's also has these tiny little sparkles throughout that make it extra special. I wish there were a few more of them in fact, but I really love this polish.

The holographic stamping polish is the first of its kind featured on my blog.  You'll find a review upcoming for the Liquid Sky Lacquer holo stamping polishes, but overall they are in fact much more opaque than regular holographic polish that you would use to stamp.  Despite how sheer and delicate it looks as it scrapes it comes off very bold on the nail particularly in direct sunlight and under things like the kitchen lights.  

I also broke out the Jumbo XXL 6 Marianne's Nails plate.  I mean I just had it out and there were so many tempting designs I just ended up reaching for it automatically.  If you haven't seen the review I did for this huge plate check it out here

So pretty I love how in this shot I was able to capture the glitter poking thorugh and the holo floating all around it!

I should have really worn this so much sooner because seriously this is such a pretty polish!  I was able to capture a bit more of that shimmer I was talking about earlier. When I rock my nails in the video you can see it beautifully.

And so here we are - Holopaque in Dark Depths with Wildflowers ;)  What do you think? Yay? Nay? Abstain?  ;)  Kidding.  In any case I hope you liked it a little.  You can find Holopaque here.  Marianne Nails stamping plates can be found here.  And those of you who don't follow me on IG got to see my new video set up on this latest video for the first time.  Everything is a lot clearer and sharper now.  I think I may need one more light just to eliminate a few of those pesky shadows that are annoying me.  Otherwise I'm quite pleased with my new set up.  Thanks so much for reading/watching and see you next post...
