Time for a nude/neutral mani today! This is OPI's San Tan-tonio which is a creamy nude with a hint of tan. I stamped with China Glaze Magical using Mash plate 41 and added some tiny bling raided from Nubar Golden Glow. I liked how the stamping came out since I don't think the base colour does a lot for my complexion.

I've been fortunate lately to get my hands on some new stamping plates. Often it's very difficult (not to mention expensive) to buy plates in New Zealand. The Pueen collection has been on my 'want list' for a while and I was delighted to finally get it!
Nevermore by Cult Nails is the most wonderful black one coater polish and my go to when I want a polish that's going to contrast with a busy plate.

I've recently 'acquired' some fabulous Butter London polishes that I've been wanting for ages. Shag is a gorgeous metallic coppery bronze. Then to my delight I noticed this new Konad plate too - well it seemed like a perfect match! I thought the letters over the entire nail might be a bit much so this is my first attempt at a tape mani. I think it turned out quite interesting!

CG Short & Sassy is one of my all time favourite polishes. It's a classical elegant burgundy and I wanted to embellish it but not detract from it's gorgeous deep colour. I randomly stamped images from the BM314 plate in various positions.

Wow - there are some great images in the new Bundle Monster stamping pack! Loving that there are heaps of full nail stamps - and that they ship internationally!
Today I'm wearing Zoya Neeka which is an oldie but a goodie from my collection. Neeka is nearly a one coater and great when I'm in a hurry! I stamped using Color Club Eternal Beauty which gives a subtle tone on tone effect. Unfortunately the sun was not co-operative so the true holo effect is subdued.

Today I'd like to show you a subtle tone on tone manicure. Even though I've had Below Deck for ages this is my first time wearing it. It's a lovely pastel purple based taupe and goes on evenly and easily. I recently bought some more CG polishes with the express intent on using them for stamping and Joy is one of them. I thought it worked really well! Base colour: China Glaze Below Deck Nail plate: Bundle Monster BM 319 Stamp colour: China Glaze Joy Topped with Essie Good to Go
Excuse my tip wear and the quality of the photos. My husband has 'borrowed' my camera and these are taken with my Galaxy SIII. Also the uploader has randomly rotated the photos . . .?!
Wowzers! I certainly don't have anything like this in my collection - this polish literally comes to life on my finger tips.
This gorgeous bright blue has a very strong linear holo effect in the sun. In the shade it becomes a more muted silver denim blue. I used a regular base coat and two thin coats and no top coat. The application was simple - no hassles with pulling or streaking and extremely quick drying.
