Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Lina Nail Art Supplies Stamping Plates!

Hi stamp champs,

I've got a some down time happening while I recover my health so I figured I'd spend today catching up on all of the major plate releases I've missed.  I'm gonna go back to Lina Nail Art Supplies.  Her seasonal hits tend to be very popular and it seems this release is no exception.

Hey stamping addicts

Alright stamp champs here are the latest releases that MoYou London churned out of the last couple of months.  Not nearly as many as I thought and while some are absolute hits there are a few misses as well.  If you are planning your holiday shopping for your favorite stamping addict this posting may help you to pull out the newest releases from this platemaking powerhouse  So without too much halaballouh let's get into it!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Sugar Bubbles Nail Art Stamping Plates!

Hey stamperistas,
Nothing To Disclose

I'm just gonna release a buttload of new plates that hit while I've been out of commission today.  I'll start with one of my favorite platemakers Sugar Bubbles. She released these plates about two months ago sort of peri-Halloween.  I knew I was going to be too late to grab them up for Halloween since these plates are located in Brazil and shipping can take a while, BUT as with every Sugar Bubbles release these were worth the wait!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New UberChic Beauty Radiate Love, Vacation Mode, Fairy Tale 2, Texturelicious 3, Lovely Leaves 2, Zombie Love 2, Lovely Leaves 2, Halloween 3, Got Chevrons, Holiday Jingle, and Collections 18, 19, 20, 21 & 22!

Sup stamparistas,

Talk about a brand I'm behind in and UberChic Beauty will be at the top of the list.   Unfortunately or fortunately depending of you are and your budgeting Brittany releases plates like mad!  It means I can never ever keep up with all her wares on a bad day or a good one.  I'm behind on the last collection but because of my blog posts I know exactly where I left off.  And as it's fall she has also released several of her single release plates and mini's.  As usual quality is never the question with this brand its merely picking out the plates that make your heart strings sing and going from there! So since this is a mega post I'm just gonna dive right in!

My Favorite Nail Art Stamping Plates for Christmas 2017!

Hiya stamperistas,
Happy post thanksgiving dolls I apologize for the delay in this post I had an unexpected hospitalization sigh but I'm back!  Now its time for my annual favorites of Christmas.  I say annual but y'all know I'm hit or miss on that jazz.   Here's my first post cataloging all my Xmas favorites. Lets talk about how Christmas is my favorite holiday of all time!  I love the lights, the scarves, the warmth of hot cider and yummy apple brandy, and of course the smell of pine needles and spiced candles is everywhere.  For me its an irresistible combination.  Its been love at first sight for years now. As such every year when new stamping plates release I realize that love all over again and I want to share it with you today so get ready!

First up and in no particular order....

Multi-Chrome Mirror Nails Pigment Abstract Stamped Nail Art + Tutorial!

Hey stamperistas,

Its already the end of November - insanity!  I feel like this last year has both dragged by and flown by and in someways has been incredibly testing and others quite joyful. Highs and lows?  Definitely the last two weeks have been leaping to say the least.  Thanksgiving has already passed us by  I'm still not not nearly ready to think about the holidays, but my nails are saying yes.  If my Black Friday purchases are anything to go by they are screaming winter/xmas now! Right now I'm leaning hard on my love of pigments, flakies, ultrachromes, holographic powders of varying microns, and of course glitter!  And nothing says winter like the above.  I'm going in easy this time with some abstract graphic featuring some duochrome mirror goodness!

Halloween 2017: MoYou London Halloween Funky French + Tutorial

Hey stamp champs

Time for another Halloween mani.  This time playing with colors and french tips as opposed to classic Halloween imagery.  Really this was just an excuse for me to break out my new MoYou London Frenchy Collection plates and Starrily's Big Bang Flurry which I have been dying to use since I bought it so long ago.  The end product of this combo was a pretty and cute mani that could potentially be toned down for a casual Halloween nail art.

Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Lina Nail Art Supplies Stamping Plates!

Hey stamp champs!
Nothing To Disclose

Alright here we go! Lina Nail Art Supplies have released more new plates and unfortunately had an anniversary sale that I missed by a few hours.  Sigh!  Well I've never reviewed this brand before but I do have several of their plates and can attest the quality is excellent such that I will promote their new releases.  I don't know much about this platemaker other than its a stateside indie that has been doing well for itself over the last year.

Halloween 2017: Holographic Glitter Ghosts + Tutorial!

Happy Tuesday stamp champs,

Its Halloween in case you missed my posts on my favorite plates for the holiday.  Let me say it again its mutha-f-ing Halloween!  Ok pause.  It is not Halloween at least not yet, but my nails don't know the difference and I wouldn't care if they did.  Let me pause again to say thank you to those of you who reached out to me after coming back.  Honestly at times I feel like my readers don't care or don't notice and move on.  In some ways it makes it harder to come back, but when I see the comments it makes me grateful and humble that maybe across the world across the nation I have bonds with women that I have never met over something as trivial as nails.  It's a joy and I thank you all for it. Ok so enough sap let's talk about these holographic ghosts!

My Favorite Nail Art Stamping Plates for Halloween 2017!

Hey stamp champs,

As promised an update on my favorite plates for the upcoming holiday.  I apologize for the delay as I went to grab info on several of the platemakers I was shocked to realize many were closing doors, but more about that later.  Has anyone got plans yet for Halloween? Costume ideas?  As you know almost 3 years ago I put together a post of all of my favorite Halloween stamping plates featuring plates I loved incredibly hard and also the ones that made me feel I would literally die without.  Yes literally! Ok not literally, but you know what I mean.  Halloween is one of my favorite seasons and as always I want to share that love and hopefully stir your own excitement and my own as the holiday filled with pumpkin flavored treats and pseudo-scary delights!

One thing is clear in the last 1.5 months Ms. Brittany has been extraordinarily busy.  I didn't realized how many products had released including one bundle I want to bring to your attention especially it will be expiring soon.  So let's take a look at one of my favorite stamping companies around!

Yo stamp champs,
Nothing To Disclose

Happy Saturday! I'm always behind there's really no point in discussing it anymore.  Its just the permanent state of being I occupy at this juncture in my life. I'm busy af, but I miss my readers, I miss my nails and I make it a point to keep sharing my passions with everyone!  Today I'm just going to put out all the recent MoYou London releases in one massive blog post.  This will follow with all the UberChic Beauty releases in one massive blog post, and some further catch up as well.  I'll conclude with some new nail art and tutorial later in the day.  If you want to see what I'm swatching these days or up to behind the scenes follow me on Instagram.  That is my most up to date social media....carrying on! MoYou London has been busy lately for me some mega hits and a few swing and misses.  I know that freaking Scandi Collection released and I was like ugh.  My bad but really totally not my cup of tea whereas the Minimal Collection made me plategasm hard.  So today let's get into what this company has mass released over the last couple of months since January.

Spring Plaid and Floral Nail Art + Tutorial

Hey stamp champs,

Who's ready for the spring?  I am!  Trying out new colors and new techniques.  You haven't seen me use the "placement" style plates yet though I own many times of these plates.  Mostly I'm just "in the mood to stamp" these days and so this is the result.  Btw I was so ready for spring.  It's still cold here but my nails are already for spring and I feel the ensuing craving for neons that I always have as the thought of the upcoming summer approaches.

Patchwork Foil Nail Art + Tutorial

Yo stamperistas,

No stamping in this one today.  I'm back to playing with textures and obsessing with my nail foils. Right now there are so many cool foil manis out there its crazy.  I'm seeing lot of interesting things happening with foils and mattes.  So I thought I might take my turn with playing about with foils at well and the result was this scattered shredded  creation below!

Slurred Overlapping Holographic Dotticure Nail Art + Tutorial!

Hey stamperistas,

Ugh I've been dead.  Ok not dead but it felt like I was dying because of overnight coverage and disaster shitz.  Cray!  I could not wait to get back to my nails.  In the interim I did about 1 million failed Valentine's Day nail art.  It was like I could not get things right which is why I ended up posting nothing.  Everything looked fugly - geh! I decided my first nail art once free was going to be dark, blingy and layered.   I also decided I was going to use plates from one of my absolute favorite MoYou London collections - Holy Shapes. I wanted the stamping blingy too.  Normally that means cue in the Llarowe Holo stamping polishes or Liquid Sky Lacquer but I got schooled hard when I took out my recently purchased SuperChic Lacquer holo's.

Nothing To Disclose

“My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.”  - Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland

Hello fellow lovers' of Alice!  I'm just going with the fact you love Alice because I love her.  Because so much of my formative years was spent thinking about how I have often made mistakes much like the Disney inspired Alice, giving myself good advice but very rarely taking it.  Lol!  So wtf am I waxing poetic about this darling girl? Well MoYou London seriously gave me a full on stamping plategasm with the expansion of their collection - Alice In Wonderland.  Its only 2 plates but I seriously died and so will you if you haven't seen them yet!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Animal Collection!

Hey stamp champs,

I skipped a few of the 2016 MoYou London collections and maybe a few expansions too.  I'm trying to catch that up this week.  I'll put up all of the latest collections except for one which will never ever grace my blog because the main content is one of my most hated creatures ever and I will never have their evil presence on my blog.  I of course am referring to the  the deceptively evil clowns from the Circus Collection :/  Ugh no...just no.  So other than that dreadful set everything else will be featured including this recently released Animal Collection jazz.  Let's go!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Festive Collection Expansion!

Yo stamperistas,

Continuing the streak of let's catch up with all the plates ever this month let's talk about the latest Festive Collection release from MoYou London!  This release was for the holiday plates for Christmas, but even if you don't celebrate the holiday and just want to enjoy some awesome winter plates these work well for that too.  I really liked this expansion so let's take a look!

Simples: Masura Magnetic and Holographic Swirls + Tutorial!

Happy New Year stamperistas,

Your girl is back and ready to start the year off right!  Last year looking back I didn't post nearly as much as the year prior.  Last year was truly my struggle year.  Lots of cool things happened but I couldn't keep up with everything - school, work, health, and nails.  This year I'm gonna get back into my stamping passion once again! I'm hoping to have more reviews, more nail art, more everything so here's to 2017.  I'll also do my annual my favorite looks of 20xx post later this week so stay tuned! Also please leave some comments below if there are any looks I did that you specifically liked over the last year! In any event today I'm going back to the trend in 2016 that made my heart beat hard - magnetics more specifically of the Masura variety!
