Messy Mansion Feather Nails and Nfu Oh Flakies

Hi all, finally got to play with my new MM14 plate and I love it! As always it's fabulous quality and great designs :) I'll get right to it...who really came here to read? ;)

Base: Nfu Oh54 (4 coats) This did not build up well so next..
Base: Nfu Oh 56 (1 coat) Made it a lot more green than intended but built opacity.
Sponged: Models Own Indian Ocean and more Nfu Oh54
Took most of the polish off the brush (picture polish lagoon) and randomly swiped it on the nails.
Stamp: MM14 and Spa Ritual Hugs (a great dark purple)

On with the pics! As usual...please enlarge :)

 Top 2 are more color accurate but the bottom two show the awesome Indian Ocean you can't see in the above pics. It really did make this mani pop!!! Also the green in the top 2 isn't so olive and intense.

 All pics taken in natural lighting...minimal indirect sunlight.

Well after many layers of polish I got what I was hoping for. This is so much better in person but then aren't they all? Have a fabulous day <3

Neon Nails and MoYou London

Good Morning...*gasp*...yes, morning! lol Only because I haven't had the good sense to sleep yet ;)
So I had a hankering for some neon gradient..but then I wrecked it with stamping..such is life.

Base coat: OPI Nail Envy
Base: Cult Nails Tempest-1.5 coats
Sponged: China Glaze Son of a Peach & Quo by Orly Femme Fatale
Layered: Nfu Oh 48
Stamped: MoYou Sailor Collection-06 & Sinful Colors Dream On
Topcoat: INM Out the Door Fast Drying Topcoat

Make sure to enlarge the pics...hope you like :)

 Le sigh...once I stamped you can't even see the pretty just looks peach. Still pretty though :)

 My sponging didn't look this spotted on the actual nail...strange.
Anyway...have a wonderful weekend everyone! Until next time......;)

MoYou London and leadlight Technique

Hi everybody :)) Quick post today...have been drooling over these images for some time now and I finally did a mani with them. Wanted to use all the OPI Sheer Tints but I didn't have the patience to mess with all that stringy mess so I used Butter London Disco Biscuit with a little bit of topcoat to make it more sheer...I actually just blended them in a blob on my stamping plate.
Base: 2 coats of Cult Nails Tempest (needs some thinner in my opinion)
Stamp: MoYou Pro Collection-03
Flower color: Butter London Disco Biscuit
Big Flowers (thumb&ring finger): OPI Be Magentale With Me & Disco Biscuit
Base: OPI Nail Envy (as always)
Topcoat: Out the Door Fast Drying (as always)

On with the pics! As always be sure to enlarge :)

 I also added some pink rhinestones. I messed up the black stripe on my thumb :(
 I really love these images together! Enjoyed almost more just black and white. My original vision was just to color the flowers red but it sort of took off and ended up a little much for my taste. Think I would have preferred it if I had maybe just colored in the flowers on my thumbs and ring fingers...oh well! I do still like it.
Have a wonderful Thursday evening :))
