Pink and Black Holographic MoYou Princess Plate Stamping

I’ve been playing around with my MoYou stamping plates again.  I saw this star pattern on one of the Princess Plates, I believe its number 14.

I used Colors By Llarowe Black Gold Texas Tea, which stamps so very well and gives a bit of interest as its a great holo polish.

Love this, the pink is Cheery Bon Bon by Nella Milano – which we’ve seen before and reviewed here.

What do you think? Too pink?  or just right?  Let me know in the comments

Barry M – Moonlight Ltd Ed Winter 2014

I happened upon the new Barry M glitter toppers released in Boots.  There are two, both of them have red bottle tops.  This is the first one I have tried and is called Moonlight.  The other one is called Starlight.

Moonlight is a glitter topper, with silver stars, silver glitter of varying sizes and small red moon shapes in the clear base coat.  Here you can see one coat over a base of Wet N Wild Haze of Love.  It is packed with glitter and so the dab, splodge and move about the nail for even glitter placement is the best way forward here.

The stars didn’t come out with every dip in the bottle, but you certainly get a good range of red moons in every brushstroke.

These are limited edition and are only available from Boots.  If you like it, best get it quick as last year the editions did sell out quickly.

Nailgasam – Star Dust


I have a polish to show you today that is a new brand to me.  This is a Nailgasm Polish called Star Dust.  My its a pretty little polish.  From what I can tell, Nailgasm Polishes are available directly through an Etsy shop orvia Facebook.  Its a blue based glitter top coat, packed with silver and blue glitter in a number of sizes and shapes, including stars!!  Its lovely.  Anyway, onto the pictures!

I put two coats of Star Dust over Megalast Root of All Evil, a good deep metallic blue, and as you can see its a bit of a stunner.  I decided it was best to pop it over undie polish, simply to preserve the polish I have and sometime it just looks better.  Plus, too many coats sometimes obscures the glitter in early layers.  You could probably build up a jellie like finish with about three or fout coats.  Anyway, these two coats went on smoothly over the base coat.  The only slight struggle occurred with the stars, they aren’t the most easiest thing to get our, but I nearly got one per nail.  They were not a problem at all, with a coat of Seche Vite, they behaved themselves and stayed flat.

I really like this, I think it would also look good over dark purple, so I might try that next.  Finally,  really love the bottles and I cannot wait to check out more!!
