BPS Review: BP-48 Stamping plate / 31DC2015: Red nails

So it's September again and it's time for the 31 Day challenge. And at the same time I got an amazing package from the lovely Bornpretty store full of stamping supplies that I will feature during this challenging month so I can show their amazing plates to the most people possible. 

Day 1 is Red nails and I wanted to make them with the plate I was looking most forward to - BP-48! It features amazing mandala type of patterns, also some paisley print and classic roses. I also used some Red marble studs and iridescent black ones to make the mani shine that I also got from the store a while back. 


Here you can see the plate and the pretty package it comes in. The patterns are amazing and etched to perfection. So you can use it in any type of way you like since the patterns are very big and full of different shapes. I used the main paisley print on my nails only the accent nail has the mandala pattern on it. The entire plate is easy to work with and fun to use since the nail art combinations are endless.


The plate is easy to work with and I can't wait to use it to make some decals because all these lines and swirls are perfect to color in with all the colors in the rainbow. 


For this mani I used S-he stylezone no. 215, p2 Fever, I <3 make up Nail geek Scandal and China glaze Surfin for boys to make radial gradients as base. The I stamped it all with BP-48 and Kleancolor Metallic red to give it some glittery depth. Over it I stamped again with Essence Stamp me! Black and Mundo de Unas Red. I topped it all off with some rhinestones and studs I got from Bornpretty store.


So head on over to Bornpretty nail art store and get their stamping plates that are a classic must have nail art supplies for any nail artist by now. When you are shopping there don't forget to use the 10% OFF CODE RJL91

Pick N Mix challenge: Purple, Red and Aqua

Purple - check, aqua - check , red and if by red you mean hard to see pink glitters - check :) I am so happy that my Zodiac sign - Aquarius was made a while back by MoYou London into a stamping plate.  And one of the cool parts of the plate is the star constellation pattern. I know I could free hand draw it but why if I can just stamp it? :) As inspiration for the colors I used the sleeve that the plate came in since the galaxy on it is a mix of amazing colors as it can be seen on the bottom <3




To make the galaxy base I used Essence Stamp me! black, Dark night starlight, China glaze Frostbite and So blue without you. Over it I added Essence Cool breeze that are the aqua hex glitters and Catrice Sky and snow to give it the blue and purple shimmer. The stamps are made with MoYou London Zodiac 1 and Essence stamp me! white stamping polish.


And here is a magical Galaxy nebula gif to make your day <3

With the last days of summer passing me by, here are one of the last sea inspired nails this seasn. I wanted to use all the happy blue polishes I got and top it off with some white glitter to make it seem like these are bubbles around the random sea creatures :) 


The base is a mix of Catrice Port blue, Blue cara ciao and Ruby kisses Blues clue. The glitters are from Golden rose Carnival 01. The stamps are made with Kiko Gold, the plates I used are MoYou London Cookbook 11 and BM-XL25.

Pick N Mix challenge: Free choice

Free choice - WIIIIIIII means for me do what you do best - mix a bunch of random colors and hope for the best :) I like how the combination of it all turned out - thou they remind me a lot more of some type of fall colors, maybe just because there are so many darker shades in there :) Honestly I just wanted to pair the fugly China glaze Budding romance with as many polish buddies I could find to match him since so many folks say he is one ugly guy due to him being a puke green shade. I like him thou :)




For the base I used Essence Dare to kiss, Inti inka, Catrice Purple regin, Rockby and China glaze Budding romance. The stamps are made with QA71 and Kiko Taupe as a stamping polish. 


I don't know where I was going with this mani but now that I look at it - it reminds me the colors of the crests from the Harry Potter movies - does that make sense? :)

LoL mani: Annie in Wonderland

Annie the Dark child was one of my 1st ever LoL champions I played and fell in love with. And her skin that is Wonderland themed was always something I wanted. Now I finally own it and use it all the time!

I mean how can you not fall in love with a big teddy bear dressed up as a bunny in a fancy suit? While a little psycho girl trails behind him and sets everything on fire :)



Here you can see my inspiration - I think I captured their spirit in my nail art :)




These is the cute duo in game <3 



Some more amazing fan art I found via uncle Google to keep the inspiration flowing :)



For this mani I used a bunch of plates - some for stamps and some to make decals. I used MoYou Rockstar 1, Alice 2 & 4. The stamping polishes I used are Essence stamp me!black, Mundo de Unas Red, Yellow and Blue, Kiko Gold. The base polishes are Color club Love you to pieces, LA Girl Sparkle ruby,  Essence Cookies & cream, English rose, In love, Hello sunshine, Sinful colors Wisp.  


My favorite Annie quotes in game:
'' Bear hug!''
''Come out, come out where ever you are!''

TNCC Jewelry: Rave bracelets nail art

To continue this months challenge here is another nail art inspired by jewelry. But it's inspired by jewelry I wore as a kid. We called them Rave bracelets since the rave scene was still a thing back then.

All it was to it was a million neon beads lined up on a bracelet. Or a million little bracelets with neon beads. So that and all the ridiculous drinking faces people make while drinking and being out on the dance floor were the inspiration for this nail art :)

I love how fun and silly these nails turned out :)


For this mani I used MoYou London Princess 11 and Essence Stamp me! Black to make the decals. Then I painted in the faces with Morgan Taylor Pink flame-ingo, Don't worry, be brilliant, China glaze Surfin for boys, Yellow polka dot bikini, Sun worshipper, Sun of a peach and More to explore. 


Here is a little sample of my inspiration :)

More inspiration! Ahh to be a 90ies kid again :)

A fun let's go out and party gif :)

Pick N Mix challenge: Pale pink

I love how Essence is stepping up their game! More and more of their 'special' effect polishes look like fancy indie brands <3 I got my claws on Essence Truth or dare? and it is a quite unique mix of nude / pale pink and white glitters of all kinds of sizes. It took only 2 layers of it to get the desired effect. Essence keep up the work! <3


For this mani I used S-he stylezone no. 333 as base. Over it I added 2 layers of Essence Truth or dare?. And over it I added stamps made with Essence Stamp me! black and MoYou London Time traveller Back to the 80s 2. 


Here you can see the amazing Truth or dare? - I love how it looks over a gray base. Come to think of it now I want to pair it with some more taupe or beige nude type of polish to see how the glitters react to that type of base :)
