OPI Peru

This year’s fall collection from OPI takes its inspiration from Peru. My favorite collections from OPI are their spring and fall collections because they’re always inspired by a place, (this year’s spring collection was inspired by Lisbon) which gives so much inspiration for nail art designs. The Peru collection consists of 12 creme polishes and at a first glance it may not look like a typical fall collection becasue there are many lighter and colorful shades. After swatching the collection I have changed my mind – the collection is colorful but the shades are muted not bright. And anyway who say you should only wear darker shades in the fall?

I usually don’t include OPI’s press pictures of the collection in my blog posts, but this time I had to! I love the cozy vibe they’re giving and they make me like the collection so much more!

I got the polishes in the Infinite Shine formula and this is the first time I’m trying a whole collection in this formula.
Infinite Shine is a 3-step system which will last up to 11 days of wear and the polishes dries super shiny! The formula of the Infinite Shine polishes is really good and they made the application super easy.

Bundle Monster Around the world 2

Today I’m going to show you nail art designs that are inspired by different places of the world! I recently received Bundle Monster‘s Around the world 2 stamping plate collection and I really enjoyed creating these design with the plates.

I used black and white stamping polish from Bundle Monster to create these designs. They’re available as a duo, or to purchase individually. If you’re wondering about any of the other polishes I used, feel free to ask about them in the comments below.

I chose the rainy clouds for my design using this plate, because right now we could use some rain. I live in a very rainy city, but this summer has been so hot and we’ve barely had any rain at all, so let’s hope this design helps with that 😉

I think I changed my mind about ten times when I was going to decide what pattern to use on this plate. As you know I love florals, and this plate have a few to choose from. I’m very happy with the end result, but I think I need to revisit this plate soon again!

When I saw this plate I knew I wanted to use one of the aboriginal inspired patterns. First I thought about mixing the patterns and make each nail different, but in the end I decided to only use one of them.

Stamping plates and stamping polish used for these designs are available on www.bundlemonter.com.

If you had these plates what nail art design would you create, and did you have a favorite out of these five designs?

Bundle Monster + Black Queen Nails Design

Let’s take a look at the designs I have created with this stamping plate so far.

20180725_132601003_iOS

For this design I made a purple to white gradient and on top of the gradient I reverse stamped these cute flowers. For the stamping I used Bundle Monsters black stamping polish Straight up black, and then I filled in the flowers with two holographic polishes.
I really loved wearing this design and I was a bit sad when it was time to remove it.

For my second design using this plate I wanted to incorporate one of the beautiful girls. I started with a neutral base and stamped the girl and red flowers over it.

I already think that this plate is going to be one of my go to plates for floral nail designs, as this plate has so many beautiful to choose from.

Bundle Monster Botanicals collection

Today we’re going to take a closer look at Bundle Monsters Botanicals collection. The collection consists of ten plates and so far I have used four of the plates to create three designs. I can’t wait for fall to arrive so I can use the leaf images on these plates to create gorgeous fall leaves designs.

For this bright hibiscus design I used Restless Dahlia as my base and stamped the hibiscus flowers using BM-S324 stamping plate and black stamping polish Straight up black, I filled in the flowers using Rose gardenGobi you and Empire club.

I would’ve loved to have this plate in the spring, because I know I would’ve made more than one tulip design then. But who says you can only enjoy tulips in the spring!? I think they’re beautiful flowers and should be enjoyed all year. To create this design I used BM-S325 and black stamping polish Straight up black.

20180721_154530771_iOS

I also did some nail art with the neons from this collection, and it turned out so bright you might need sunglasses to look at it! To get the cells I used a special polish called Spot it from Dance Legend.

Twinkled T Desert sunset

Recently Twinkled T released their latest stamping polish collection called Desert sunset.

When their polishes finally was able for purchase from an European distributor they had released 12 shades and I was in need of some new stamping polishes so I bought them all! I knew it was a bit of a risk buying that many at once without testing a few at first, but I had read great reviews. They were as good as I was hoping and I’ve loved Twinkled T’s stamping polishes since the first time I tried them!

With that said, I’m always excited when they release new shades! The new Desert sunset collection consist of four creme and two metallic polishes.

20180722_155150489_iOS

On my pictures I’ve swatches the polishes on their own and stamped over black and white. I used Twinkled T’s stainless steel stamper and UberChic Beauty’s Got chevron? 2 plate for the stamping.

Liquid gold is a gold metallic polish that covers in one coat. It stamps very well both over black and white.

20180722_154147020_iOS

The polishes from the Desert sunset collection is just as good as their other stamping polishes (which is just what I expected!). All six polishes are beautiful but if I had to pick favorites I would chose Coraline and Tickled, they look just as good stamped as on their own!

Have you tried any of Twinkled T’s stamping polishes?
