I am so thoroughly not in the mood for “spring” nails! Pastel, pastel shades everywhere!
It’s definitely Spring, the plants are growing, the birds are singing and my cherry tree is covered in lovely flowers.
But I still want to paint my nails black! 🙂
This mani has roses, that’s kind of springtime(ish) yeah?
The gradient is Seance from Illamasqua, and Evil from NYC, the image is from Moyou stamping plate Gothic 03 and Hit The Bottle Black as Night.
I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite then a layer of Illamasqua matte topcoat.
I realized earlier (while I was doing a spot of gardening) That my nails are to long! This is a bit gross but I could probably grow a decent sized potato from the amount of soil I had to clear out from under them! It’s also becoming increasingly challenging to pick up small things lol!
I almost chopped them all off earlier, but, I thought it would be fun to try some other nail shapes before I do! 😀

My New Moyou XL stamping plates came today! Yay! I couldn’t wait to try them out, For this I used plate 07 from the pro collection.
The finished blue and purple rose nails.
I started off with a base of Sinfulcolors Paradise, it’s a good polish but I don’t think I would wear sky blue on it’s own. I much prefer darker shades 🙂 Then using the cling film ( or Saran wrap) technique I added Star Gazer polish number 309, it’s a really pretty dark pink jelly with iridescent pink and blue glitter. I’ll do a swatch for it at some point! 🙂
