MoYou Nails stamping plate review moustache nail art manicure movember nail art manicure like a sir nail art manicure

I have a fetish for everything moustache (except maybe for the real kind), so I was psyched to try out this stamping plate from MoYou nails! As you can see, it has six different moustache stamps and a cute owl in the middle, and I love owls as well, could it be any more perfect?

This stamping plate is from MoYou Nails, often confused with MoYou London, but they are two different brand with different types of stamping plates. Honestly, I hadn't heard much about MoYou Nails plates, mostly just from people confusing it with the MoYou London plates. So I was excited to try them out and test their quality. And I have to admit, I'm quite pleasantly surprised!

Even the thinnest lines and tiniest details stamped perfectly. I was pretty sceptical about the mr. White glasses, and the thin moustache on my middle finger, but they picked up and stamped great! Yes, the mr. White glasses are kinda patchy in my manicure, I stamped it a couple of times to get as close to the center of my nail as possible. This one ended up pretty much in the center, but the glasses are patchy, but they did look perfect in my other attempts!

Unfortunately it looks like they are sold out of this awesome plate, but they do have tons of other cool stamping plates to check out! They are also having a sale right now, so be sure to check that out.

MoYou Nails also sent me a scraper and stamper to try out, but for this first test I wanted to use my trusty Konad scraper and large squishy stamper. I wanted to see how the worked with my regular technique before testing their stamper and scraper. So watch out for my upcoming review of those :) I also stamped using my black Konad stamping polish.

And yes, I did recycle my previous manicure for this ;) I was getting a pretty big cuticle gap and some tip wear, but adding a black border around the nails covered that up perfectly! Also, since my manicure was a few days old, stamping over it was super easy! If you want to see a tutorial for how I did the saran wrap base, check out my previous post.

Saran wrap nail art tutorial pink saran wrap manicure

Finally a new video tutorial! I'm sure most of you already know how to do a saran wrap manicure, but I was doing one and decided to film it in case someone out in the great interwebs wanted to learn ;)



Also, I really love how these two polishes look together using the saran wrap technique! Saran wrap manicure are so so so simple, but give such gorgeous results, I need to remember to do them more often!

For this I used Astor - Malabar Princess and OPI - Pink Flamenco, two bright pinks. Perfect to bright up this dark season :)

Today I have some more cute nail confetti from Bundle Monster to show you! My previous experience with nail confetti was not as successful, even though I am intent on making those cute bows work, these triangles were much easier to use!

The base for this manicure is IsaDora - Belle Beige, from IsaDoras new fall collection (swatches and review is coming soon!). The leopard design was done using IsaDora - Black Coffee and a gold nail polish from H&M (which I can't remember the name of, sorry!). And let me just say how much I love this color combination for leopard print! I think the nude, dark brown/black and gold looks so elegant!

On my middle and ring finger I added the cool triangle confetti in a slightly random design. I really like the contrast between the geometric triangles and natural leopard print! And the gold in the leopard ties nicely together with the gold triangles.

I added two generous layers of top coat to make sure the triangles would stay in place, and they did! Except for my blunder on my middle nail, where you can see one triangle is slightly poking out, they all lasted until I removed the manicure a few days later.

Pink ribbon dotticure

This inspiration for this cure girlie manicure came to me when I was visiting my best friend a few days ago. Her youngest daughter was (for some reason) wearing a pink ball gown with black polkadots and a black ribbon at the waist. And I though, "Hey! That's a perfect pink manicure for BCA!" ;)

So I found my beloved Picture Polish - Fairy Floss, did two coats as a base and added the dots and the bow using OPI - Lady In Black.

I really suck at dottictures, I can't for the life of me get them even! I need more practice, cause dotticures are so cute!

I'm still doing pink for October, so show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness. As I'm typing this I'm actually waiting for the pink base of my next manicure to dry ;)

This one is a little bit more simple. I used Essie - Cashmere Bathrobe as a base, and did a glitter gradient using China Glaze - Material Girl.

I just love glitter gradients, I think it's such an easy yet stylish form of nail art. I don't think I'll ever grow tired of it :p What do you think of glitter gradients?

And Cashmere Bathrobe, it's so beautiful! I fell in love with it again when I did my Quatrefoil Skittle manicure, and now I want to use it all the time, lol :p
