Stamping cocktail

Standard

Hi there! It’s the weekend here but seems like I will be working thru this weekend while recovering from fever and cough. Ain’t fun…. Anyway I DO have a fun mani on today.
I was inspired by a friend who posted this photo on Facebook and asked if anyone can teach her how to do this.
Sorry the pic was not watermarked or anything so if it belongs to someone please let me know and I will gladly credit her.

Whilst my stamping skills are not even a fraction of this talented nail artist, I just had to try this!
So this is my version of the cocktail stamping.

Excuse my crazy dry cuticles, have not given them any TLC lately 😦
Anyhoo, this was done using the face shop’s white creme as a base. This has got to be my absolute favorite white creme polish. No streaking, covers in two coats and cheap as chips! What’s not to love?
I then stamped an assortment of designs using Konan, Bundle Monster and Red Angel’s plates. It was really challenging to match the positioning for the thumb and index finger. Hope I didn’t do too bad. I found that using a used or old credit card as a scrapper works sooo much better than the konad or normal scrapper. Somehow the finer details gets picked up. Do try this method for stamping sometime. Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend all! ❤

I used a baby blue base and topped it with two thin coats of Unicorn Bath. I love the name! Unicorn bath is quite sheer and requires a bit of dabbing to get the bling on but no biggie. It’s made out if large pieces of royal blue, white and holo hexes suspended in a very very light blue jelly base. There are also very very fine slight pinkish shimmer worked in to the base that gives this polish a very subtle bling effect.
What do you all think? I think I will try a pink base with this and see how this combo works for my next mani.
Thanks for reading and till the next time keep polishing! 🙂

I used Hits mari moon modern girl’s Cutie Pie. This cutie is beautifabulous!! Sorry my photos cannot do it justice but the multi chrome is really strong and flashes green, purple, olive and even fushia. Hits’ was a surprise as I really did not expect much of them. I got them from ninja polish when they had their black Monday sale for half price! Can’t wait to try out the rest of the collection.
I then used Crows Toes’ Cheshire for my accent nail. Cheshire is something that I have been lemming for the longest time! Check out the bling! No application issues here and no dabbing required. It’s made up of purple hex in large and small sizes, gold and tiny green flakes suspended in a clear base. Love this and amazingly it somehow reflects the green in the rest of the fingers when I take the pix with flash. Crows toes is carried by Annette from shop eclecticco she is having a storewide 20% birthday sale now!! Check it out before the sale is over!
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear from you!!

I first used Enchanted Polish’s Ballerina Sprinkles as a base. This is light blue polish with a very subtle pink shimmer and very slight scattered holo on the nail.
Of course I won’t leave this alone :p

I used Hit’s Apolo a dark blue linear holo and created a gradation effect. Stamped this with white snowflakes and topped it all with Daring Digits’ Ice Age.
I love love love Ice Age. Really it’s give a blingy wonderful boost to the mani creating a snow flake effect. Made out of light blue tiny hex, large white hex suspended in a very light blue jelly base.. Love it!
I got this as a part of the grab bag from mei mei
She is having a special sale for Daring Digits. It’s only SGD10 a bottle!!! Grab while stocks last!! She ships worldwide except for Italy.
So what do you lovelies think? Snowflakes in sunny humid Singapore?

I used China Glaze’s shocking pink neon as a base and stamped it with bundle monster’s candies plate with liquid leather from Bundle Monster. For the accent nail I used Layla’s Caviar Effect Nail art from shoppe eclecticco she is having a 20% off store wide birthday sale! Quickly grab a bottle before it goes out of stock!
I heard about the use of the word caviar is trademarked so I will call this my candy mani. Looks a lot more like candy than caviar me thinks. What do you say?
Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you!
