Mani for the day using red angel plates

First of all, Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I didn't really go for an all heart/love themed nail design instead I used different shades of my favorite nail polish color (that's any shade of purple) to do my nail design for today.

I used the grape debate (from nicole by opi ) as my base color, for stamping I used image plate RA-112 (click here to obtain more information on red angel plates) with pastel violet (special konad polish), and applied one coat of seche vite to finish my manicure.

Final result with flash:

I think my image with flash is slightly more accurate (in real light it's just a bit darker than the final image with flash) than without flash (for some reason my camera was picking it up slightly darker than in real appears). Final result without flash:
Side note:  For this stamp you might have to scrape a bit slower otherwise you might have a hard time keeping the polish in the image gaps/cracks.

Floral Matte Look Using Red Angel

I think I'm starting to understand why some people really love Matte About You (by essie). Even though I bought the matte top coat in summer I never used it up until 2-3 weeks ago. And after using it all I can say is I'm fully in love with this top coat

For today's look, as the base color I used Moxie by Zoya, for stamping I used RA-109 (click here to obtain more information on red angel plates), and for the top coat I used Matte about you by essie.

The look before I applied the top coat:

Final look after applying the top coat:
Hope you guys liked the final look. Also click here to see the final look more clearly if my pictures aren't that good.

Simple and easy nail tutorial using red angel nail plates

My very first design using red angel plates(click here to obtain more information on red angel plates) RA-121 and RA-119.

The final design got smeared a bit because I'm so used to seche vite that I forgot how other top coats have to be applied in a certain manner in-order for the design to not smear. Sorry for this I'm only posting a tutorial video because I didn't take any images for the final result.


Hlaf Moon Nail Design using Konad plate m85

Around a week or so ago I posted a tutorial on youtube using Konad plate m85 to create a half moon floral design. Even though some people might've been disappointed with the final result because my middle finger's design was a bit messed up (1st the polish smeared when it was still wet, later the stamp didn't turn out that well, and to top it off when I removed the french tip guide some of the polish came off) but I was really glad as to how it turned out. Even though people around me call me a perfectionist I don't allow my perfectionist side to be displayed when it comes to nail art (I do nail art for fun and to release my stress not to please others.)

The final result for the half moon nail tutorial (click here to see the full tutorial and also to see a more clear result for the tutorial) I posted on youtube was:

Also after a week or so I re-did the same design using a different base color, added rhinestones, and instead of a glossy finish I used matte about you from essie to try out a matte look.

The base color I used was Stuck in the Chimney by Nicole by OPI (on the left it's with flash and on the right is without flash):

Sorry about the streakiness on the final look I didn't know how thin essie's matte about you really is until after I used it. The final look:

Hope you guys enjoyed my post.
