NOTD - Butterfly stamping and taping.

Hello lovelies,

Quick post today to share some nails I was wearing recently (terribly behind in posting, dear me)!

I decided to get back into my stamping (for more details on getting started, read my tutorial here), so I decided to do some accent nail stamping and then did tape nails for the remaining nails. Please pardon the tip wear, I've been doing quite a bit of housework lately and with the lack of daylight savings, I couldn't photograph it before it started to show!

For the stamping, I used Sally Hansen White On as a base, and stamped the butterflies using Zoya Karina and ORLY Liquid Vinyl* (using Konad plate M39). With the tape nails, I used Liquid Vinyl as a base and then painted Karina over.





I hope you enjoyed that, lovelies! I'm thinking of getting more plates soon, so stay tuned!

Much love,
MM.

  1. Gorgeous!

    Stamping is so annoying if you mess up (which I tend to do quite frequently) because being a perfectionist, I'll have to remove all nail polish on that nail and start over! argh...

    1. Thank you! I feel your pain, I'm the same! Luckily we have quick dry topcoats which reduce the risk of smudging somewhat...

  2. Looks great! I really love the butterflies, so pretty. I bought a stamping set a while ago (not Konad), I really should try more designes...I failed on my first try, my stamper wouldn't pick up the designs

    1. Thanks, Evelyn!

      Did you try giving the stamper a buff with a nail buffer? It helps it pick up the polish a bit better. Check out the tutorial I wrote a while ago on getting started with stamping. :)

  10. It looks absolutely stunning! Like a piece of art... I like that you mixed the red with the soft white and butterflies, it's such a good combo. X
