Aspen tree nails + video tutorial

Hi everyone! Autumn is slowly approaching (at least in Sweden) and the leaves on the trees have started to change color. Even though I prefer summer I’m kind of looking forward to the new season. It’s so beautiful when the leaves change color and start to fall from trees. One more thing I like about fall is the fall themed nail art! I love making leaf nail art designs.

Today I’m going to share with you my first leaf nail art for the season and I hope you like them as much as I do!


The base for this design is Essie Midnight sun and I stamped the threes using UberChic Beauty’s new Lovely leaves 3 stamping plate together with Glow upVibin’LitSauceySubtweet and No filter from Twinkled T. I finished off the design with my new favorite matte top coat from Glisten & Glow (called Matte top coat). Their Matte top coat instantly became a favorite because it dries very matte and it doesn’t dry streaky like some matte top coats tend to do.


I always have a hard time deciding between glossy or matte finish, so I had to take photos of the glossy version too! Which do you prefer, matte or glossy?

UberChic Beauty Moroccan Beauty

A while ago UberChic Beauty released Moroccan Beauty, a stamping plate with Moroccan themed patterns.

Moroccan patterned nails was one of my favorite designs to make when I first stared doing nail art, and it still is (I just don’t do them as much now because I have so many other thing I want to make – oh the struggle). Back when I got in to nail art I only had Moroccan nail vinyls so I could pretty much only change the color combinations. With this plate there are so many more options for Moroccan nail art designs!

So far I’ve made three nail art designs with this stamping plate and I know that many more will come in the future.

The first design I made using this stamping plate is inspired by Moroccan tiles, and I love how it turned out! Since there are many small details it took some time to fill in the images. So it’s not a design that you make everyday, but I do enjoy it when I have the time. It is a bit like a coloring book, except I color in stamped images and put them on my nails!

The second and third designs are both stamped over gradients. I chose patterns with a lot of open spaces to let the gradients shine trough.

What nail art design you you make with this plate? Please let me know in the comments!

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!

Moroccan inspired nails have been one of my favorite designs for such a long time. It looks good in any color combination, but my favorite is dark fall shades combined with gold details.

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

Recently Ana (@blackqueennailsdesign) released her own collaboration stamping plate with Bundle Monster. The plate is gorgeous, and as you may already know I love floral nail designs so this plate is just in my taste!

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

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.

UberChic Beauty Welcome spring

Hello guys! I don’t know about you, but I’m really longing for spring to arrive. Last week we had some really cold weather (around -13°C) so I can’t wait for warmer weather.

Last Friday UberChic Beauty released a new spring themed stamping plate called Welcome spring. The plate is full of beautiful floral and Easter themed images and a few of the them are layered. With this plate at least my nails can be in spring mode in this snowy weather!

The first design I made with this plate are these cute cherry blossom nails. I started with a white to pink gradient before stamping the cherry blossoms over it. Nothing says spring more than cherry blossoms and I can’t wait for them to start blooming!

Another flower that reminds me of spring are tulips, I love having a bouquet at home during spring. What polish is better than Kiss me on my tulips from OPI for a tulip design?

I had to use one of the Easter themed images on the plate and chose to stamp these cute Easter eggs over a gradient.

Check out the tutorials for these manis here; Cherry blossoms, Tulips and Easter egg gradient.

BeautyBigbang Stamping polish

Hello guys! Today I will show you a bunch of stamping polishes* that I received from BeautyBigbang a few weeks ago.
I get a lot of questions about stamping and one thing that I have found that really helped me is switching to stamping polish! You can stamp with regular polish too, but not all polishes work, and they are definitely not as opaque as stamping polish. I also find that stamping polish is a lot easier to pick up from the plate. So, if you have trouble stamping, I suggest you invest in some stamping polish. And for $3,59 per bottle these stamping polishes are a pretty good deal!

I used the same stamping plate for all the swatches, it’s also from BeautyBigbang and you can find it here. Now, let’s take a look at how these polishes look stamped over black and white.

White stamping polish 007, SKU: J6415TM-7A. I’m super impressed with how well it covers over black! No milky white polish here, as you can see it’s super opaque!

Black stamping polish 002, SKU: J6415TM-2A. It’s very black and opaque!

Blue stamping polish 001, SKU: J6415TM-1A. I love the way this frosty royal blue polish looks over the white base! Since the polish is so dark, it doesn’t show up that well over black.

Gold stamping polish 011, SKU: J6415TM-11A. This is the perfect gold shade, and I just love the way it looks over darker shades!

Silver stamping polish 008, SKU: J6415TM-8A. This polish is a little different from the others, it’s formula is much thicker and it smells a bit odd, but it still works great! I’ve actually noticed this in other silver stamping polishes too, so it must have something to do with the silver shade.

Grey stamping polish 009, SKU: J6415TM-9A. It covers really well over black for being such a light grey shade.

Purple stamping polish 012, SKU: J6415TM-12A. I’m also very impressed with how well this purple polish covers over black. It’s a super cute shade that I think will be very useful for spring manis.

Pink stamping polish 010, SKU: J6415TM-10A. It’s a lovely pink shade that I’m happy to add to my collection. It will be perfect for floral nail art!

I had no problem picking up any of the polishes from the stamping plate and I found them very easy to work with! BeautyBigbang have four more shades (yellow, red, green and brown) that I don’t have, but need to get. I really hope they will offer more shades in the future!
