Favourite Stamping

I'm going to start with one of my favourite nail patterns. I've recently got into nail stamping after seeing all the designs you could. It took a few goes to get the hang of it and now that i have i'm obsessed :-)

For this design i used my favourite polish right now which is Ciate Purple Sherbet. This polish came free in Junes issues of MarieClaire and i've fallen in love with it. It does take 3 coats to get a smooth even finish but once dry it has a lovely gloss look to it. For the stamping i used cheeky plate CH12 with konad white then finished off with Rimmel PRO Matte finish.
Sorry for the dry cuticles, its all of a sudden gotten really cold over here in the UK and my hands are hating the weather right now.


  1. wow! amazing! Love this! And I love the fact your from the Uk too! My hands are suffering atm too - Silly changes in weather! x

    1. Sarah - Thanks alot for your comment, It's great i havent really found many people on here from the UK. Argh my hands are awful no amount of cream is helping :-(. I've added the follower widget, i thought it would already be on there, but getting the hang of things now

    3. ooo will certainly get on Facebook and do that, thank you :-)

      I was using nivea but started using Simple derma hand cream (from superdrugs or boots) and its actually working, i use that brand when my legs are really dry so thought i would give their hand cream a go, glad i have.
