The sparkly silver glitter polish I used as the base for this is Shooting Star from Rimmel London. it’s as lovely polish but It did need a couple of coats of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp onto.

The stamping polish is Konad Special Polish In Black. I think my bottle is on it’s last legs, the image was really sharp and easy to pick up on the stamper but getting it onto my nail was another matter :/

I only kept going because 1. I’m stubborn and 2. Removing glitter polish is a pain in the butt!

Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello! 🙂

Today I have Stained Glass nail art to share with you

Stained Glass Nail Art

Stained Glass Nail Art

For this I used

  • Revlon – Stiletto
  • Rimmel – Shooting Star (Space Dust)
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
  • Moyou Gothic Collection 04
  • Konad Black
  • Seche Vite
  • Permanent Marker Pens

Stained Glass Nail Art

I started our with a Glittery base, I used two coats of Shooting star followed by one coat of prism.

As Shooting Star is a textured polish, I added a coat of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp over.

I used Konad Special Polish in Black for the Image. Then another coat of SV over the stamping!

Moyou Gothic Collection 04

My first attempt to add colour to my stained glass nails was with my tinted polishes, and it really didn’t go well! It was lumpy, bubbly and the colours really weren’t bright enough. I had only  tried this on my index finger so I hid the horrible mess with a coat of Stiletto.

This was a bit of an experiment to see if it would work! I coloured in my nails using permanent marker pens! I only tried it because I thought I was going to take off the polish and start again!

It’s very pretty but It’s probably not the best idea I’ve had… I should probably invest in some good quality tinted polishes!

I didn’t add any topcoat over the ink, I tried on my pinky nail and the Seche Vite dissolved the colours, so I covered that with a coat of Stiletto as well.

Permanent Marker Pens…

I didn’t wear this for very long, and I wouldn’t recommend colouring in your nails with permanent marker pens!


I’m Back! 31DC2014 Day 17 Glitter

Hey everyone, I’m back 😀

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, I have tried to write this a couple of times but my brain just hasn’t been cooperating lol!

I have been super busy! I went to a music festival which was amazing and it was really lovely to catch up with people I don’t see very often. Did a big spring clean of the flat (which I really should finish at some point) and loads of gardening, I have loads of really interesting plants and I really hope they all grow!

Anyway on to the nails! I really should have written posts to be scheduled but for some reason the music festival snuck up on me and I didn’t end up with enough time 😦 but I will carry on with the challenge, even with being really far behind! 🙂

Glitter Nail art Rimmel Shooting Star

Glitter Nails

Here are my glittery nails for day 17.

I used Shooting Star from Rimmel, it’s from the Space Dust collection and it’s a polish that I haven’t tried before, I have to say I think it would look better with some undies.

I applied two coats but it didn’t seem to be quite opaque enough, but this doesn’t really show in the photos. When it was dry it has a slightly gritty texture so I added a coat of Seche Vite to make the stamping a little easier.

Moyou Pro XL 07

Moyou Pro XL 07

The stamped image is from Moyou Pro Collection plate XL 07 I really like this image but I think that it is too big, I do find that quite a lot with the XL plates from Moyou, the full nail patterns are the perfect size for all of my nails but the individual images are just too big :/

The black stamping polish is Konad SP in Black, then I applied another coat of Seche Vite.

Silver shiny glittery nails!

Silver shiny glittery nails!

I’m thinking of investing in a XL squishy stamper, I have the Konad hard double ended (hehe) stamper and the white and purple rectangular ones from Messy Mansion, the rectangular ones are amazing! I love the purple one so much!

Do you use a XL squishy stamper? And is it worth the investment? 😀
