Topic Tuesday: Favourite Polishes for Stamping


My favourite stamping polishes are;

- MoYou Special Nail Polish Black, this is an opaque polish which you need from a black.
- MoYou Special Nail Polish White, again an opaque polish, so works over dark polishes.
- Beauty Big Bang Nail Polish 002, I find this is the same opaque quality as the MoYou Black. I have been using this more recently and I like it too.

Stamping Plate: Nicole Diary - 213

I bought this myself in 2020, it took about five months to arrive but I imagine that was because of Brexit and the pandemic.



It comes with a protective blue sticker and the back is branded. All of the images I've used have stamped across well.

Here are some nails I have done using the plate;

Topic Tuesday: Favourite Summer Polishes


Earlier this year I posted about this years top five summer nail polishes, I think anything holographic is good in the summer because when the sunlight hits it the polish comes to life. Also any photochromatic polishes are ideal for the summer because of the extra hours of daylight.
