For this weeks Pick and Mix the prompts are Yellow and Wild Animals!
Blow Illamasqua and My Private Rainbow ILNP
Blow from Illamasqua is a pale yellow cream, It’s been in my untried pile for one reason… It’s yellow! the polish itself is really lovely, it’s opaque in two coats and dried quickly to a really glossy finish, but it’s yellow and I just can’t get excited about it
My ILNP Order arrived today so I had to have a play! I added a thin coat of My Private Rainbow (l+s) over the Illamasqua polish, Oh it’s so pretty! But my camera once again (gah!) decided that it wasn’t going to show the lovely holographic sparkles!

Today I have some stamping over Caviar Beads to show you!
Ciate Caviar Pearls with Stamping
I didn’t come up with this idea, I saw it somewhere on the internets, and now I can’t find the post anywhere 😦 I would love give credit to who ever it is that came up with this amazing idea! 🙂
I used a Ciate Mini set that has been in my untried pile for ages. the set contains Cookies and Cream Polish and Caviar Pearls called Shooting Star.
Cookies and Cream, Shooting Star
Cookies and cream is a nude creme, the colour is similar to a very milky tea, for a light coloured nude polish it’s even too pale for me! I don’t know if it’s because it’s old but the application was an absolute pain! So it’s not one that I’ll be wearing on it’s own. and I’m glad the caviar pearls covered the bunching and the bald spots!
The pearls are a really pretty mixture of mostly gold along with silver, clear and iridescent dotted throughout.
I applied them according to the instructions on the box, and waited for around 20 minutes for them to fully dry.
The stamping plate is Moyou XL Pro 04, I decided on the tiger print as it’s a bold and simple image, I think stamp images with a lot of detail would get lost amongst the pearls!
I stamped over the pearls as I would usually stamp my nails, I did use my extra soft Marshmallow stamper, I don’t think that it would be possible to do this using a firm stamper, without firing the tiny pearls across the room…
Moyou XL Pro 04 Over Caviar Pearls
I do think this is really pretty, unfortunately it’s clearly not something that would last more than a few hours.

Hallo again! 🙂 Here are my Purple nails for this weeks GOT Polish Challenge 🙂 Sorry about the lack of posts last week I have had a really crazy week! I’ll tell you about it in my my post tomorrow 🙂
Purple Zebra Gradient
For my purple nails I started with a coat of White on White from China Glaze, then I used Baptiste and Poke from Illamasqua and a little bit more White On White for the sponged gradient.
For the Zebra stripe stamp I used some more Baptiste and Moyou Pro plate 04XL.

Look at that sneaky bit of glitter on my middle finger… Grrr! It must have hitched a ride on the sponge, I didn’t notice it until I was cropping the photos!
