I have been making stamped decals again! 😀 this time I used images from two of my Moyou plates, 01 and 02 from the Suki Collection.
The polishes I used!
- Barielle Shades – Grape Escape
- Color Club – Ulterior Motive
- Revlon – Sweet Revenge (the pink one from the duo)
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Sally Hansen – Ivory Skull
- Revlon – Calla Lily
- Konad Special Polish – Black
- Color Club – Topcoat
Pink and Purple Cherry Blossom
I started off by making the flowers, you can find how I made them here.
I used Grape Escape and sponged on a little Ulterior Motive on the tips as the base colour, when that was dry I applied the flowers using the Color Club Topcoat like glue! 😀
When that was all dry, I applied a couple more coats of topcoat to seal all of my decals in! In some places on my nails there must be at least 6 layers of polish, it feels really thick like Gel! It took ages to dry, about half an hour
I really liked making the cherry blossom decals, even tho the tiny flowers where a bit fiddly to paint! The time it took to get them all on my nails was rather a lot longer than I would have liked, then getting them to stick was a pain! I think that it’s because I made them to thick, but I’m going to have to try out some other clear polishes to find the best one for decal making! 😀
This is still quite a new technique to me, practice makes perfect and all that! 😀

I got a bit carried away with the filing and now I have rather stubby nails! But I have to say it is great to be able to type, use my phone properly and do everything else! 😀
For the Background colour I used a gradient of Sally Hansen – Dive Deeper, Nina Ultra Pro – French White and Revlon – Calla lily.
For the winter trees I used Revlon – Black Magic and a thin nail art brush.
I used Revlon Matte Suede – Emerald City For the Christmas tree with a little bit of the french white for the snow, the little ornaments I used Barry M – Red Glitter and China Glaze – Glitter Goblin, along with my smallest dotting tool.
The snowflakes are a small dotting tool and some more french white.
For the reindeer I used stamping plate HD05 and Konad SP In Black, with a tiny bit of red glitter for his nose, I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I don’t do much free hand nail art, I should probably practice a bit 🙂
