Happy Sunday everyone! I'm having one of those weekends that feels like longer than two days, so I'm very happy :) I was intending to post yesterday but I went to the park instead - got to make the most of British summer while it lasts (which could well only be a day or two).
And on the subject of British - today's nail art is London-themed. I used the MoYou London Tourist Collection 01 plate, which I bought ages ago because it looked awesome but have only just got round to using.
For stamping I used Konad stamping polishes in white, red and blue, along with Barry M Black and Silver Foil. The polishes used for the base colours are Barry M Cotton, Nails Inc Southwark, Ciate Boudoir and Barry M Red Glitter.
So this isn't a particularly coherent look, and I'm not really happy with how it turned out. But I did use a few new techniques! So for the little Queen's Guards I attempted two colour stamping. The Union Flag stamp that I used on my thumb is all just one stamp, but I wanted to use both the red and blue. So I made two decals - I stamped in each colour then removed the bits of the image I didn't want from the stamper with a toothpick, then made a decal by applying top coat over the image on the stamper and letting it dry. I think this shrunk slightly though so it doesn't quite fit my nail, but we'll just pretend that's the look I was going for.
I also didn't intend to stamp 'London' on my index finger, but my London Eye ended up so off centre I had to add something else to make it look intentional. Think my stamping still needs a bit of work!
If you've used this plate, I'd love to see what you've come up with :)
