Hey Lovelies! Are you in love with all the amazing water marbling nails that people do but you just can't seem to get it to work for you or you just cant be bothered with the mess it creates? Well I have a the perfect solution! Lady Queen's hehe040 nail stamping plate is the perfect plate for you!

For this look I started out with a radial gradient using Wet n' Wild's Megalast polish in the color I Red A Good Book and Sinful Color's Midnight Blue. Once that was dry I went in with my white polish and stamped the water marble image. 


How awesome is this stamp?!?!? I love how flawless this plate worked. My white polish is getting old so it wasn't transferring real great but I made sure it was only the white polish and not the plate by testing it out with other colors. I am looking forward to working with this plate more.

Born Pretty Store's Nail Stamping Plate BP-L006 Review

Hey Lovelies! Today I will be featuring the Born Pretty Store nail stamping plate BP-L006. I love that this plate has such a great assortment of different images for all ages!   


For this first look I started with two coats of China Glaze's Something Sweet and two coats of Essie's Watermelon on my ring finger. I then went in with the opposite color and stamped my plaid design. I love this look so much but I need to practice making my lines more straight lol 


For the second look I started out with two coats of Julep's Janet and China Glaze's Foie Gras on my pinky finger. Next I went in with the opposite color and stamped the leopard print image. I think that the polish I used to stamp with was a bit to thin and that's why the image came out very light in the middle but with darker edges. 


 Even though both of these looks have errors in them they were made by me and not because of this plate. I wanted to so you guys that not ever polish works the best when stamping! I would however highly recommend this plate and cant wait to create more nail looks with it.

Jamberry's Something Blue (Matte) Nail Wraps

Hey Lovelies! In this post I am rocking Jamberry's Something Blue (Matte) which is from their New & Notable collection. I absolutely  love that this wrap comes in a matte or glossy finish! I found that the matte finish wraps heat up much faster then the glossy finish and they adhered to my nail extremely well. Need something blue for your wedding day? Then these are the wraps for you!
