Maniology Holly Jolly stamping starter kit

Get your nails ready for the festive season with Maniology’s Holly Jolly stamping starter kit. The kit includes two festive stamping plates, stamping polishes Confetti and Frosty and limited edition Holiday Monocle stamper & scraper.

I really like the products in this kit, the monocle stamper is my go-to stamper. It’s see-through, it’s short (which makes it perfect when coloring in images when reverse stamping), it’s squishy and always picks up images perfectly!

How cute are the animal ornaments on M078? I had such a hard time choosing which ones to use for my design. And M079 has everything you need for your New Year’s Eve mani!

UberChic Beauty Fall launch week 2019

Hi everyone, today I have something exciting to share with you! UberChic Beauty is launching a bunch of new products (not only stamping plates) that will be available August 31 (today!). To make things fun they showed previews of a new product each day leading up to the release day.

Keep scrolling to see all products being released this week, my swatches and nail art plus info about an awesome launch offer!

Day 1: Hello fall & pumpkin spice

Hello fall & pumpkin spice is a perfect fall stamping plate! I love all the lettering images, and you can either use them on their own, combine them with some of the other images on the plate (like the cups or pumpkins) or why not use them together with fall favorite stamping plate Lovely leaves or even some fall themed nail vinyls.

Day 2: Football is life

Fotball is life is an American football themed stamping plate. Not being American I don’t know much about football, but then again I’m not very interested in sports, so maybe I wouldn’t have even if I was American. Anyway, I’m sure that this plate will be appreciated by football fans and be perfect for Super Bowl nails!

Day 3: Limited edition holo nail polish

Ghouls just wanna have fun and Electric Pumpkin are UberChic’s first ever nail polishes! Both polishes are 7-free and cruelty free! These are limited edition, so once they sell out they won’t be re-made. In the pictures below I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.

Day 4: Lovely leaves 4

Skärmavbild 2019-08-29 kl. 18.03.07

Lovely leaves 4 is the newest addition to the Lovely leaves family. The plate consists of a bunch of leaf patterns, a cute fox, some fun sayings and layerable leaves. Lovely leaves are my go-to stamping plates for fall, so I’m so happy to see this new addition!

Day 5: Halloween 5

Skärmavbild 2019-08-30 kl. 18.36.11

The Halloween series gets a new addition, Halloween 5, and this stamping plate is a must for any Halloween enthusiasts! We don’t really celebrate Halloween in Sweden and I don’t dress up, but I do love making Halloween themed nails during October. So I think you will be seeing more of this plate in the near future.

What are your thoughts on this epic fall launch? Will you be getting any of these products? My favorites among these products are Hello fall & pumpkin spice and Lovely leaves 4!

All products will be available at 10am MST (18:00 CET) and they will have a site wide sale for three days! Until Sept 2 you get 15% off all products on their website using the code HAPPYFALLYALL.

ManixMe August | Mosaic

Today I’m going to show you Maniology’s August ManixMe box, and for those of you who haven’t heard of it before – it is a monthly nail art subscription box! Each month has a different theme and the box consists of 2 exclusive stamping plates, 2 stamping polishes plus a surprise gift (e.g. a brush, stickers, foil, powder). There’s also an express kit version that consists of 2 stamping plates plus a surprise gift. With your first box or kit you get a free stamper and scraper set ($10 value).

Get $5 off your first ManixMe box using the code Hanninator10 (the code also gives you 10% off all regular priced items on www.maniology.com)

August’s Mosaic themed box is inspired by Middle Eastern art and architecture. I love Moroccan/Arabesque patterned nails, so I was really excited to get this box.

For my first design I used both polishes, the nail foil, and one of the plates included in the box. I probably wouldn’t have chosen this color combination if these polishes had not been a part of the box – but I’m so loving it and it’s giving me fall vibes! I also used Coconut from Maniology as my base polish for this design.

For my second look I used the other stamping plate and colors that I would have typically used for tiled inspired nail art. I’m going to be honest, the finished design did not turn out like I had in mind, but I still like it! For this design I used Maui Gold, Ducky and Blue glue all from Maniology.

Since the August box is no longer available I though I’d give you a peek of September’s Hocus Pocus themed box. I hope I will be able to create some looks with the September box while it’s still available, but unfortunately international shipping is very unpredictable and takes some time… sometimes way longer than it should.

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 😉

CAN We Get Cozy (BM-XL157)

These pancake nails may look more American then Canadian, but everybody knows that American pancakes are nothing without the maple syrup!

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!

Marrakech Chick (BM-XL159)

20180731_120531836_iOS

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?

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!

img_3079

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?

img_3241

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.

ÜberChic Beauty Love and Marriage 4 & Collection 23

Hello guys! Today I will be showing you ÜberChic Beauty‘s last release for 2017, Love and Marriage 4 and Collection 23.

img_9166

Love & Marriage 4 is full of lovely patterns that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. The first pattern that I wanted to use is the first one on the plate. I made a pink smoosh base that I topped with some gold flakes before stamping the hearts. I would love this pattern as an negative space alternative too! Maybe something for an upcoming Love & Marriage plate?

img_9127

My second design using the Love & Marriage 4 plate are these super cute love bunnies. As soon as I saw the bunny with the balloon I knew I had to use it! It reminds me of a game I had when I was a child called Match-a-balloon.

img_9465

On the Collection 23-01 plate this floral image caught my eye. Actually I’m always drawn to the floral images on their plates, they’re just so gorgeous! I reverse stamped this design, but this image is also available as an negative space alternative. Since I’m in a make everything matte mood right now I give you both the matte and the glossy version of this design.

img_9030

I saw this diagonal dotted pattern on the Collection 23-02 plate and thought that it would look great paired with a bright gradient and I’m very happy with the result. Did I mention I’m in to matte nails right now?

img_9431

img_9433

On the Collection 23-03 I found another beautiful floral image. I paired it with a sparkly gradient, and of I course I had to make it matte too.

On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for the designs show in this post, and you can find them through these links; Smoosh hearts, Love bunnies, Pink flowers (I’ll update with the link once it’s posted), Diagonal gradient, Sparkly gradient.

 

ÜberChic Beauty Got chevron? & Collection 22

Today I’ll be showing you designs created with one of ÜberChic Beauty‘s latest releases. In the end of November they released four new stamping plates, Got Chevron? (made in collaboration with instagrammer @gotnail) and Collection 22.

IMG_8231

The first design I made with the Got chevron? plate is this dreamy pastel mani. I think it turned out very cute and it’s also giving me Easter vibes.

IMG_8288

I did another design using the Got Chevron? plate and this time I went all in on purple! I love the different shades of purple together and the mix of matte and glossy.

IMG_7257

To make this cute and girly mani I used the Collection 22-01 plate and some striping tape.

IMG_6904

From the Collection 22-02 plate my favorite pattern is this layered image with dots and roses. The result is super cute and the best part is that thanks to the layered images it’s so quick and easy to make!

20171229_145117603_iOS

When I first looked at the Collection 22-03 plate I saw this wavy image which made me want to create this wavy beachy design. I know it’s totally the wrong season for it (since it’s winter and snowing in Sweden) but I wouldn’t mind spending some at a beach in warmer weather now.

On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for some of the designs shown above, and you can find them through these links; Pastel chevrons, Purple chevronsStamping & striping tapeRoses & dots.

*if I remember, I’ll update this post with tutorials for all the designs once they’re edited and posted*
