31 Day Challenge ~ Stamping


Today's challenge is to do a stamping mani, which suits me as it's my favourite kind of nail art! And this time I had some odd inspiration in the shape of a box of Thornton's chocolates...

...the height of luxury, I know ;-)

I had just received OPI's My Vampire Is Buff in the post, which I am ecstatic about - a gorgeous new cream shade! - and it just so happened to perfectly match my box of choccies. So I used it as a base and stamped black swirls across my nails, with accents of writing and a pink ribbon. Here they are!

I am really, really quite pleased with this! The only concern is that I haven't top-coated it yet, and I have yet to master a smudge-free finish with Konad's black stamping polish. I am planning to try "setting" my nails in cold water first.

  1. You have gotten that box spot on :)

  2. Wow so beautiful and classy!

  3. Ahh love this! amazing! I know what you mean with the smudging, I've smudged mine so many times with topcoat. Some topcoats are worse than others. x

  4. Lovely!!! I buy the bundle monster's plates and i can wait to use them!

  5. So pretty! Love it!

  6. That is lovely manicure. What did you use to get the words the right way round?


  7. Hello! It's not a newspaper manicure, it's a Bundle Monster stamping image which is why they're the right way round :) xx


Thank you so much for reading! I love hearing from fellow polish addicts so comments are most appreciated. Just to let you know that I am unwell some of the time but will try my best to reply xx
