Black and Teal Nail Art Stamping

Today’s black and teal nail art starts with three coats of Seven Psychedelic which was originally sent to me as a press sample. Then, I used Mundo de Unas Black and Bundle Monster plate BM-XL206 to stamp this flowery design on top.

I know this isn’t holiday nail art…which is probably what you expect to see all this week! But I wanted to mix it up and try to throw something unexpected out there today.

I really like the partial design this stamping design gives. It makes the flowers a bit of an accent rather than the focus of the nail.

Negative Space Nail Art – Lace Design Inspired by Carmex

{Purchased by Me}

Earlier this month, I was sent a few Carmex lip balms to review. I loved the packaging so much that I wanted to do some nail art to copy it! They didn’t ask me to do this or anything – I just couldn’t help myself! I started with two coats of OPI I’ll Take the Cake! The closest stamping design I had to the lip balm’s design was on Vivid Lacquer Plate VL028. I used Mundo de Unas Black for stamping.

Born Pretty Store Stamper Review

{Press Sample}{Affiliate Links}

Born Pretty Store sent me this stamper to review for you! It also comes in gold, but I picked the silver. It has a really nice weight to it. It’s much heaver than the usual stampers I use, but the weight is really nice and it feels sturdy. The stamper head is quite squishy – squishier than I’m used to.

born-pretty-store-stamperborn-pretty-store-stamper

 

I did need to prime the stamper quite a bit before I could get it to work. I used a glass nail file to rough it up and some acetone to clean it. (I know, I know. Lots of people say not to use acetone on stamper heads because it will eventually break them down. Well here’s the straight truth – I don’t care. It works and it works well. Stamper heads are cheap and can be easily replaced. So that’s why I use acetone on my stampers.)

 

bps-stamper-review

 

The stamper did a pretty decent job. There is some smudging and some patchy spots. I think it needs to be broken in a little bit more – perhaps a few more acetone washes. I will be using it for more manicures so keep an eye out to see if it gets better.

born-pretty-store-stamper-review

 

Polishes used were Enchanted Polish Reign Beau and Mundo de Unas White. The stamping plate I used in this mani was BP-L029 which was also sent as a press sample.

I haven’t made too many stamping decals so these are a bit amateur.
