Last week, I bought myself a ‘marshmallow’ stamp, and some stunning duochrome stamping polish from http://www.moyou.co.uk/ and this was the result
Ignore the messiness – I did that whilst watching Poldark (staring the ever gorgeous Aidan Turner), using a cushion as a table for everything, trying not to spill acetone on the sofa etc, so all things considered – it’s fabulously neat! :p
But if like me, you have only previously tried Konad stampers and felt dishearted by the whole process – you seriously need to invest in one of these marshmallow ones. They are brilliant!! 😀 Very easy to use indeed. You might want to ‘prime’ it first by very gently and lightly buffing with a very fine grade emery board or nail buffer (the letter G being next to the letter F in that word makes for interesting proof reading lol), but these marshmallow stamps actually pick up the full image, and because they are squashy you get all the image firmly on your nail.
Plus – duochrome stamping polishes…..well, how could I resist?! MoYou also do some of the most beautiful stamping plates I have ever seen. They are little works of art in their own right, and come attached to a piece of card so no more tentatively picking up the plates trying not to slice your skin open as you do so. Yep – I did say I had bought a stamper and polish last week. But then they sent me a 15% off your next purchase code…….so I had to go and buy a beautiful plate as well. Course, I did. If you are familiar with the brand, you’ll understand completely. If not – click on that linky and go lose yourself for half an hour (best set a timer :p ). I am pretty sure there is a USA version of MoYou too.
After a top coat of Seche Vite, which I agree is the best top coat ever, after 5 days I chose to remove the manicure rather than needing to due to chipping etc, so it was worth the juggling act on the sofa 🙂
I am currently redoing my nails (literally while I am typing this – I never could do just one thing at a time) using my new shiny stamping plate, so if it works well, I shall take a pic 🙂
