Tiger nails with MoYou Nails 303

Hi Everyone,

Today something quick I did a few weeks ago. In one of the fb groups the challenge color was Bronze. So I thought this pretty Bronze from Catrice would be great. And this color really asked for tiger images on it haha, so I could use one of the new concept plates from MoYou nails.

Base Catrice C03 Spiced Bronze stamped with MoYou 303.

And here some swatches.

This is from an older limeted edition from Catrice I think I bought it like 5 years ago in 2010.

And here again the MoYou plate I used.

Military nails

Hi Everyone,

I have still so many older mani's to show you but here is one I did today ;) In one of the facebook groups the alphabetchallenge is the letter M so I thought M is for military :) In another group the challenge is Memorial Day, we don't celebrate this we had something similar earlier this month. But I thought this kinda fits that theme too, for all the soldiers who fought or are still fighting for their country.

Made the camo base with P2 Your Wild Side matte 010 Vibrant green with Camo from MyOnline Shop MJ XXVII stamped with Konad brown, jungle green and grey pearl. And stamped with Konad black the rifle, soldier, grenade, tank and tags also from MyOnline Shop MJ XXVII.

Here is picture of just the camo base.

I already swatched this polish some years ago so I did not take a picture of only the base now. But it is a beautiful matte polish.

Thanks for reading.

Flowers and butterflies

Hi Everyone,

For this weekend I did a matching pedi and mani. I am going swimming so I love to do a matching pedi. And it is inspired by the colors of my bikini.

It was hard to photograph the pink flowers are better showing in real life ;)

Catrice LE Rock-O-Co C04 Apricoco. Stamped with BP-34 the flowers and Mundo de Uñas Avocado and Tulip and stamped with Catrice Rock-O-Co C01 L'Ombre A Sanssouci the grey butterflies from Born Pretty BP-22.

And my matching pedi.

I really love this base polish, it is actually a matte.

This is 3 thin coats and it dried really fast.

Have a nice weekend.

MoYou Nails entire Concept collection + Tink mani/pedi

Hi Everyone,

Today I have an exciting and long blog post for you. I have the entire MoYou Nails Concept Collection to show you. This collection contains of 10 round plates that are fully etched and each one has it's own different theme. Like music, fairytales, Christmas/winter, summer, romantique, Halloween, animal (print) and more. So there is something in it for everyone and you can buy these as a set but also individually. I will show plate scans I've made, pictures, some details and my first mani and machting pedi done with these plates.

I know everbody loves a discount so when you use the code: Diana you will get 20 % off your entire order when shopping online. You can't use this code/ coupon together with any other codes/ coupons. Also valid on their US website, so this is great news for my US readers :)

* I used my own scans to make this.

I got all 10 plates together with a stamper, plastic scraper and their 2015 Catalogue.

Let's show the individual scans I've made of the plates.

Plate 300 music themed. You can use parts or go for full nail stamping but also single out images like the music noted and stars.

Plate 301 fairytales, how adorable is Tinker Bell I just had to use her for my first mani and pedi. This plate has this magical feel to it with the twinkle stars and unicorns and beautiful roses.

Plate 302 Christmas/ Winter themed. I love how this plate has small and bigger images. Like the snowman I can use as full nail coverage but it also has these smaller images to make winter sceneries. I almost feel like doing a Christmas in May mani ;)

Plate 303 animals and animal print. How cute is it that this plate animal heads and their print pattern.

Plate 304 Halloween. Even though Halloween isn't really celebrated here I love this Holiday and always do many Halloween mani's. I see myself using this a lot in October looks great for making sceneries (and that happen to be one of my favorite kind of mani's to do ;)) The Happy Halloween can be spread across 2 fingers and I just love the bats. I also see myself using the trees for non Halloween mani's like an Autumn scenery.

Plate 305 "Nibble, nibble, like a mouse, Who is nibbling at my house?" when I saw this plate it reminded me of Hansel and Gretel because of the house and the candy. I love that you can use the images as full nail but also single out the candy and other parts. This has lots of potential to get creative with, like french tip stamping or diagonal stamping.

Plate 306 Love/ Valentine themed. I like the text and all the cute hearts. Cupid is adorable too, but he is a little big for my nails but ofcourse I can use parts of it. And as you know I like doing pedi's too, so some of the bigger hearts are great for my big too.

Plate 307 Summer!!! Summer is my favorite season. I am born the day the Summer starts here, also the longest day...June 21st. The palm trees are so pretty and look at all those cute icecream images and shells. Yes I think I'll use this plate for my next mani :)

Plate 308 Ankh, crosses, spiders, bats and a skull. I think the crosses are pretty cool ands the spiders and web too. The Ankh is too big to stamp on his own but maybe for those with really really long nails or you can stamp it on something other then nails like your phone case. 

Plate 309 Wedding themed. Look at those champagne glasses and the wedding cake. I think you can easily single out images to stamp but also would look good as a full nail design. For me personally the rings are too big, that is little downside, even using the shrinking method these won't fit. But there are other ways to use parts of this like for stamping a plain french tip.

I think this is a beautiful collection that has something to offer for everyone. People with long/width nails and also small/narrow nails or even kids nails. On most of the plates you can easily single out images too (not that easy on plate 308). I like these kind of plates because you can just stamp parts of it too and it can also challenge you to be creative and think outside the box. There are more ways too use a plate then just stamp what your stamper picks up or what you see at first glance :)

Like I said I find it a little sad the Cupid, the Ankh, Tink and the Wedding rings are too big to stamp entirely on a nail, but you can use parts of it. And I did use Tinker Bell on my mani see pictures below. My nails aren't that big they vary from 1,2 cm pinkie to 1,7 cm thumb. I've seen other bloggers and Tink fits way better on their nails ;) But even though see does not fit me completely I still liked how she looked.

Here a scan of a page of their Catalogue with the Concept collection on it.

And some pictures of the plates.

Now ofcourse you want to see how they stamp too. I have done a mani and a matching pedi using plate 301. The qualilty of these plates are super good.
Base Catrice (S)wimbledon triple stamped the stars with Mundo de Uñas black, white and lilac. Made a stamping decal of Tink and used Konad black for her and colored with regular polishes. 

Also did a matching pedi.
Like I said my nails vary from 1,2 cm pinkie to 1,7 cm thumb so you can get an idea of the size. The image from Tink completely is about 2,1 cm in length.

And a swatch of this pretty base color.

I had a lot of fun doing this mani and pedi. And I promise to make many more mani's (pedi's) with these plates soon :)

Some more information: 

- The plates are 5,5 cm.
- They have a nice backing with the website printed on so no sharp edges.
- There are small and big images on these plates, like Tinker Bell is about 2,1 cm long but there are also images that are only 0,6 cm (snowmen) so it really is fun for everyone.
- You can also find MoYou nails on Instagram and Facebook.
- You can buy them for £39.99 as a set of ten on their website or £4.99 each.
- Shipping costs depends on where you live but you can calculate them while you view your cart with items.

Freehand: Beach scenery

Hi Everyone,

Here my 3rd attempt at a freehand mani...a Sunset beach scenery. With islands, palm trees, dolphins, a hammock, a boat etc. I did these about 3 months ago.

For the gradient base I used a blue, yellow, orange, pink and purple holo from Teeez and Catherine Arley. And painted with acrylic paint.

And here the gradient base.

For these kind of sceneries I'll stick to stamping  lol...a bit of fail with the messy palm trees and all, but I did like the base ;) 

Thanks for reading!

Liberation Day 2015

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for not blogging very often, I promise to do it more again. Things just have been kinda busy and I 've been sick. But I still have lots and lots of mani's to show you, like a couple of Rock 'n' Roll mani's, mani's with my first Mundo polishes, mani's with a couple of my new MoYou nails plates (the round ones), also some with my first Chez Delaney plates and lots more ;) And ofcourse I also still have many older mani's to show from before I started blogging.

I have been posting more on my instagram: 

Today May 4th  is remembrance of the dead and tomorrow May 5th we celebrate Liberation Day with lots of music festivals across the country. Ofcourse I had to make a mani. And I'll be going to one of the music festivals, there is one in every county/province. It is always fun to celebrate our freedom with some amazing free live music. Lots of great bands/artists are coming.

Base is Sinful Colors Black on Black. With the flames representing the liberation fire (FUN7), the stripes in the colors of the Dutch flag red white and blue (Konad M44), the words 'free' and 'music' cause we have our freedom and can celebrate and enjoy it by listen to music or express yourself through music (MoYou 115) and the guitar cause I love listen to live music and will be going to the Liberation festival tomorrow (Cheeky Jumbo 5 Musical nails). All stamped using Mundo polishes.
