St. Valentine's Day Nails with the Lead Light Technique

I just had to play with the new plates, so I used Messy Mansion MM03 to create another St. Valentine's Day manicure. I also used the opportunity to try the Lead Light technique again. What new techniques have you been trying?


I started with AEngland Perceval on all nails. Isn't that a gorgeous royal red color? I just love it!
A-England Perceval

I then stamped the heart ornaments with Konad White and colored them in with L'Oreal jelly polishes. I used Bananarama Love (yellow), bubble trouble (pink), and lilac coolers (purple).



What do you think? It smeared the white a bit, so that's certainly something I need to work on for the next time. Have you tried lead light yet?

Wishing for Snow on a Blue Jelly Base

This week's theme on Adventures in Stamping is "on a blue base." I really want it to snow here, and actual snow not this wanna-be sometimes there's flurries if you squint REALLY hard snow.

I used Pretty Serious Cosmetics Party by the Poll from the Christmas Without Snow collection (oh the irony!). Then I stamped the snowflakes from Infinity Nails plate 79 with Konad white.

Are you wishing for snow??

Double Processed Stamping Technique Tutorial

There's a new technique on the block, the double processed stamping technique. It was devised by Joey in Adventures in Stamping and I decided to make a tutorial so it's easier to understand.

Here's a little breakdown if reading it might be easier for you to understand.
First, take the image/pattern that you want to be on the top of everything and stamp that like you regularly would.
Then, take the next image and stamp that like normal, except that that first one is still on the stamp. This will cause the first image to only appear where the second image has the etching on the plate.
Repeat this as many times as you want ad then stamp on your nail.

Here's the video tutorial so you can actually see what it is :)

HPB Presents My First Attempt at Double Stamping- Hearts!

I decided to try double stamping for the first time. I first stamped a background onto my nail and then stamped a more focal point type of image on top of that. I like the way it turned out, but this has certainly opened a whole lot of possibilities to me! Did I do it right?
I also used my new Nailways nail plate for the first time. This is Nailways Spring Time- Love is in the Air.

The base is OPI Hey Baby.

I first stamped the full hearts image over my nails with Konad Red. Then I stamped the individual heart on the middle of each nail facing inward and then facing outward as well. To finish the look, I use the word "Love" from the nail plate name on both ends. I did the accent nail with L.A. Girl Glitter Addict Animate. Then topped it all off with Seche Vite.

Cinnamon Candy Hearts

My manicure for today looks like candy. Both my DH and I think it looks like some sort of cinnamon candy for St. Valentine's Day. He really likes cinnamon candies. What candy do you like?

I used 2 images from the Sugar Bubbles SB011 plate.

I started off with China Glaze Phat Santa on all nails. Then stamped the images with Konad White stamping polish and topped it off with Seche Vite.

Have you ever done some nail art that made your nails look like candy?

I is for Inspired

Today for the A2Z Challenge we have I is for Inspired. We had a VERY BRIEF snowfall today and it made me happy to finally see snow. So, this manicure is inspired by the beautiful moment of snow we had.

I started off with Sinful Colors Why Not, a very vibrant turquoise blue. Very beautiful and bright! I then put Kleancolor Chunky Holo Teal over it and Kleancolor Midnight Seduction over the ring finger nail.

Here's some close-up shots:


Using Emily de Molly plate EDM07, I stamped the trees on the thumb and ring finger.

Using Sugar Bubbles SB03, I isolated the ornaments and snowflakes to decorate the other nails.

In order to create the snowbanks and drifting snow on the thumb and ring finger I just used some of the scraped polish left on the plate. I picked it up with the stamper and just stamped it on the nail like any other type of image. I really like how that turned out. I added Fingerpaints Shower with Flowers over the two tree images to give it some green and snowy white glitter. Topped it with Seche Vite and there you go:
