Pastel Skittlette With A Bit Of Everything

You all probably have already noticed that I don't do stamping nail art. I think there's maybe four stamping nail art manicures in total here in my blog and those are all also quite old. Don't get me wrong, I have tried stamping few times after those manicures, but I always seem to fail totally and I just end up with a huge mess, nothing else. When I got those MoYou London stamping plates from our last meet with the other nail polish ladies, I was really excited since I thought that maybe I would succeed finally in stamping with these plates as I had heard so many good things about them. Somehow I just didn't have the courage to test them until now... I decided to ease into my new stamping career and begin doing two stamping decal nails.

I have got total of four of these MoYou London stamping plates from our meet and I decided to start my journey aptly with a plate from the Explorer collection. This is plate number 11 and I actually got this one since I won our little nail art contest at the meet (yay!).
I ended up doing a pastel skittlette and I used quite a few polishes for these nails. I painted my thumb, index and pinky nails with Essie Urban Jungle (two coats), my ring finger with Essie Fashion Playground and I did a gradient with Fashion Playground and Essie Romper Room on my middle finger nails. Then I topped the gradient with Dollish Polish Better Not Waste and added pink and minty glitters from that same polish to my thumb, index and pinky nails. I followed an easy tutorial by Lucy's Stash for the stamping decals and did them with Konad White and colored them with Romper Room.

I thought my stamping decals turned out pretty great for a first try and also considering that I suck at stamping... So big yay! Maybe now I will have the courage to actually try to stamp something directly on my nails too. This would have really been a perfect spring manicure because of those pastel colors, but I'd say it really worked quite well in this hot summer too.

Yep, like I said, I used quite many polishes for this:

Sally Hansen Nail Rehab*
Essie Urban Jungle
Essie Fashion Playground*
Essie Romper Room*
Dollish Polish Better Not Waste
Konad White (which I forgot to include in this picture)
Glisten&Glow HK Girl Top Coat
MoYou London Explorer Plate Collection 11*

What's that gorgeous Dollish Polish you ask? Of course I had to take a close up of it:
Actually this is really cool thing, not only because the polish is gorgeous but because this is a collaboration shade that two awesome Finnish nail polish bloggers have made with Dollish Polish! Sissi from Better Nail Day and Emma from Wasting Lifestyle did awesome job with this polish, I just love it. You can't really go wrong with mint, pink and round matte glitters, and also the name of the polish, Better Not Waste, is so perfect!


*Disclosure: I have gotten the MoYou London plate from our meet. I have also gotten Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, Essie Fashion Playground and Romper Room originally for review For more information view my disclosure policy.
