Stamping Plate: Konad M63

I got this stamping plate back in 2011 and haven't used it much recently so the examples of nail art I have done using it aren't the best!

The images stamp across fine, my issue with the plate is the full size nail images are just not full nail size on my nails.

Then and Now Throwback Nails: South Park

As today is a Thursday I am throwing back to some nails I did in 2010, and recreating them now 11 years later to see if I have improved! While I don't own all the exact polishes used originally, I have used similar colours.

000 Paint Brush
Dotting Tools
Rainbow Collection Silicone Mat

I think I have improved somewhat, but plenty of room for improvement. People, even cartoon ones are so hard to freehand!

Nails: Top 5 Spring Polishes 2021

On Saturday it will be the Spring equinox, and so I'm sharing my Spring 2021 nail polish picks.

I have done this type of post before which you can see 2020 here2019 here2018 here2017 here2015 here and 2014 here.

You don't need these specific polishes, but these are ones that I want to reach for during Spring. I seem to have gone for all pastel polishes this year.

Rose Hip is a very light pink cream shade which is pink enough not to just look white.

Huckleberry is a light blue shade, lighter than a Tiffany blue and again blue enough to to look white.

Girls Best Friend is a light lilac cream polish good in two coats.

Alpine Snow has to be my favourite white polish, opaque in two coats which is great for a white.

Sheer Lemon is my final choice, a light yellow polish which despite its name isn't sheer.
