Christmas Nails - Gold and blue

Hi loves! Today I have a variation of Manon's gorgeous minty stars look to show you, as she already mentioned that exact stamping image is my favorite one to use. It's actually one of my favorite designs in general, and so I bought wallpaper with the pattern as well and put it in the doors on our bookcases ^^. You can check it out on Instagram!

To see more, you know what to do ;-).

The base for this look is the lovely Sinful Colors Blue La La, which I showed before in a gradient. But, it's too pretty to not use by itself! I needed 2 coats for an opaque look, and while the first coat can be slightly watery in some places, the second coat gives a perfect creamy finish and it levels really well. It also dried quite quickly which was great for the next step!

For the stamping, I used my Messy Mansion Pro stamperset, MoYou London Suki 05 and China Glaze 2030. I've been meaning to pick up Essie Penny Talk because sometimes I want a more coppery look instead of gold - I think that would look great against the blue base as well!

While this stamping image might become a bit boring to you, I don't think I can put it aside just yet.. maybe when my birthday gift of 4 new plates arrive ^^?

  1. I love this vivid blue and I cannot believe how crisp your stamped design came out *jealous* Honestly I only have Essie Penny Talk as a copper polish for stamping.

  8. This is so gorgeous, and I LOVE this image too! When I saw these pics I almost thought it was the same colours as I used this stamp with ages ago, then I remembered I did a gold base with a blue stamp. This looks so stunning!

  20. Multichromes aren't for everyone but who can say no to a good sparkle? Nobody!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I haven't tried combining different colors yet but that might be interesting!

  22. Thanks so much Nicole! And yes, the holo sparkle isn't a flat one but are definitely more glittery.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Then the holo versions will leave you speechless in real life! So much sparkle ♥.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was surprised as well haha! Normally my lighting doesn't allow the shift to fully show, so can you imagine how strong the shift is with these?!

    ReplyDelete

  30. Fingers crossed you find it (or is it part of their permanent range?).

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love this plate so much! I have a go-to gold and silver for stamping but no copper, so I'd be interested to know if you find one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really need to figure out more regular shades that stamp well- loving this combo!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm guessing I'll order Essie Penny Talk since everyone recommends it - you can bet there will be plenty of showcasing when I do ;-).

    ReplyDelete
  34. Everything that holds a strong shimmer and/or is opaque in 1 coat will definitely work!
