Blue on Blue Stamping

This mani starts with two coats of OPI It’s a Boy! which is a lovely light blue with subtle shimmers. I used Mundo de Unas Blue Navy to stamp this lovely design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102.

Nude and Lime Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

I got a ton of compliments on today’s mani. The irony is that I don’t really like it myself! LOL! So I’m going to show it to you because others seemed to like it and maybe you will, too. I started with two coats of Jolie Polish A Whole Latte Men which is a nude jelly polish. I used  Mundo de Unas Lime to stamp a leafy design from It Girl Fashion Plate 103.

Here is a plain swatch of Jolie Polish A Whole Latte Men. It’s not the most flattering nude, but it works well under nail art.

Pink On Pink Stamping

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

Today’s nail art starts with two coats of Pretty Serious Ichi Hanami which is a gorgeous metallicy pink. I used Mundo de Unas Barbie as my stamping polish. This polish came slightly unmixed and I’ve never been able to get it mixed all the way, despite multiple sessions in my ProShaker. This issue contributed to a bit of splotchiness in the design. However, it does give it a bit of a vintage feel, which I do like! This design is from It Girl Fashion Plate 103

Blue Jeaned Flower Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

Today’s nail art starts with two coats of essence blue-jeaned which is a really cool texture polish. I’ve had it in my drawer forever and only busted it out now! I can’t believe I waited so long!

essence-blue-jeaned-swatch

Then, I used Mundo de Unas Red Wine to stamp this flowery design from It Girl Fashion Plate 103. You can’t really see the details of the flowers due to the texture finish of blue-jeaned. So, that wasn’t very well thought out on my part. However, I like this color combo so I’m going to show it to you anyway. I did end up topcoating it so that the MDU would shine. The top coat made blue-jeaned look glittery!

Storms Ahead Stamping Mani

{Purchased By Me}{Press Sample}

This mani starts with two coats of Mango Bunny Polish Storms Ahead which was from the July 2015 Bunny of the Month subscription box. I used Mundo de Unas black to stamp this very cool design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102.

Soft Pink and White Nail Art

{Purchased By Me}{Press Sample}

This mani starts with two coats of OPI It’s a Girl! which is a very light pink jelly. Then, I used Mundo de Unas White to stamp two different designs from It Girl Fashion Plate 102. These designs are inverses of each other so I thought it would be fun to use them in the same mani. My pointer finger smudged a bit. Whenever a finger smudges, it’s always my pointer finger. I don’t know why that guy is such a douche sometimes.

I’ve already done a full review of what I think of It Girl Nail Art’s fashion plates, but the short version is they are fabulous!

Heart in the Middle

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

This nail art starts with Zoya Lidia which is a deep purple. I used MoYou Special Polish in blue to stamp a design from It Girl Fashion Plate 103. This is the first time I used MoYou Stamping polish so I didn’t know how well it would work. I was extremely pleased with its performance. I just bought this one color to test but I will certainly be buying more. (Especially now that I’m seriously considering phasing Mundo de Unas out of my life.)

Color Club Eternal Beauty Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

For this mani, I started with two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty. Then, I used It Girl Nail Art fashion plate IG 103 to stamp this design using Mundo de Unas Black. If I had to wear one finish for the rest of my life, it would be holo, hands down.

Please see yesterday’s post about my dilemma regarding MdU polishes. I think I’m going to start transitioning back to Konad based simply on the fact that MdU doesn’t disclose ingredients.

Jelly and Black Stamping Mani

Today’s mani starts with two coats of Jolie Polish Beet Down which is a gorgeous beet red jelly polish. I used Mundo de Unas black to stamp this flowery design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102.

Teal and Cream Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

Today’s nail art starts with two coats of Ellison’s Organics To-Teally Matte About You. I used It Girl Fashion Plate 103 and Mundo de Unas Pale Rose to create this design. This design is one of the harder ones It Girl Nail Art has created since it has so much space that requires polish. It’s such a gorgeous design, though! So it’s worth the effort.

My Winning Mani

{Purchased By Me}{Press Sample}

I was wearing this mani when I became $90 richer at the casino earlier this month. So I’m calling this my winning mani!! Does this mean I have to wear this mani every time I go to the casino??

I started with two coats of Enchanted Polish July 2015. I used Mundo de Unas Fantasy and a design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102 to create this look.

Copper Triangles Nail Art Using It Girl Fashion Plates

{Press Sample}

Not sure I’m a huge fan of today’s mani, but I’m going to show it to you anyway! I started with two coats of SinfulColors Truth or Lavendar, then one coat of Sinful Colors Late Night Haute. I used Mundo de Unas Copper to stamp a design from It Girl Fashion Plate 102.

The polishes and design all on their own are very pretty but I really don’t like this color combo. Do you??

I should have taped off the tips to make this a fun french mani, but I was late to a brunch with a friend who lives all the way across the country!! So, I hope you’ll forgive the laziness. ;)

RAD-ient Mani

{Press Sample}

Today’s nail art is a little all over the place, but I like the look of it anyway! It starts with three colors of SinfulColors RAD-ient topped with one coat of SinfulColors Night Owl. I used this bar/line design from It Girl Fashion Plates IG101 and Mundo de Unas Turqoiuse to create the stamped design.

Black and Purple Stamped Nail Art

{Press Sample}

Today’s mani starts with two coats of SinfulColors Fig. I used It Girl Fashion Plate IG101 which was sent to me to review for you! The stamping polish was originally Sally Hansen Greased Lightening, but it didn’t show up well on the dark purple. So, I switched to my go-to! Mundo de Unas Black! You can see some hints of Greased Lightening behind the black. I think it looks kinda cool!

Hot Pink and Black It Girl Fashion Plates Stamping

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

This is the sixth mani I’ve done using It Girl Fashion Plates and I’m still fantastically impressed. If you can get your hands on these plates, you will not regret it! I’m so thankful that It Girl Nail Art sent these plates to me so I could share them with you.

Today’s mani starts with OPI Silver Canvas and OPI Pen & Pink from the Colorpaints collection. I used Mundo de Unas Black as my stamping polish.

I did not put a final top coat on this which keep the MDU Black a matte finish. I thought it looked nice next to the metallic of Pen & Pink.

Seattle Pride Mani

{Press Sample}

This mani starts with two coats of Fairytale Finish Beastquake which was originally sent to me as a press sample. I used Mundo de Unas Neon Green and a design from It Girl Fashion Plates IG102 (which was also sent to me as a press sample.)

When I showed my husband, he said, “It’s ok, but it looks a lot like Seahawks colors” and I was like, “UM! That’s totally what I was going for!”

New Stamping Plate Alert!

{Press Sample}

There is a new indie emerging on the scene and this one makes stamping plates!!! It Girl Fashion Plates is launching this month with three carefully designed and tested stamping plates. Nicole, the owner of It Girl Fashion Plates, gave me all three plates to share with you. My first impression is that I’m blown away! These are so well thought out and so well tested they might just be my favorite plates yet!

Each plate has designs big enough for super long and super wide nails. I know some of you have nails that are even longer than these designs, but the size of these images will certainly be fabulous for the vast majority of stamping addicts. The designs transfer extremely well and the lines are super crisp.

I’m going to have a ton of It Girl Fashion Plates manicures to show you so you better get excited!!!! Here’s the inaugural It Girl Fashion Plates nail art I did! I started with two coats of Mango Bunny Polish Surprise Bunny and I used Mundo de Unas Tutti as my stamping polish.
