Anyway Istarted with a base of Zoya Yuna, which I got on my recent trip to Santiago last week. I was very drawn to the green-gold shimmer on the bottle, I wish it was more visible on the nail (though I only saw it under artificial light so it may have been more noticieable under sunlight? dunno). Anyway, it was very easy to apply in two coats.
Also this was my first time succesfully using my new Moyou London Marshmallow Sticky stamper. I had to was it a couple of times with dishwasher for it to pick up properly and found out that direct pressing on the plate instead of rolling, like I'm used to, worked better for picking up images. also using reaaaally light pressure.
I didn't get the greatest stampig but I think it's more user error, I'll keep using the stamper and will let you know how it goes.
Have you tried Moyou London's Marshmallow XL stamper? Do you like these super sticky stampers?
Take care and see you on the next post!

Bu the other day I was talking to a friend about how much I missed blogging so I decided to get a proper light and work out some kind of setup for taking pics. And here we are! I can't promise a very regular schedule because I only paint my nails once per week and sometimes it's a big fail lol, but let's see what comes out of this.
Finally I stamped the chevron print with Moyou London Fashionista 05 and Essence's white stamping polish, a recent purchase. I have to say I don't like it as much as Konad Special White, which is what I had been using for years, because it's not as thick, but I'll try leaving it open for a couple hours to thicken up and see if that makes stamping more opaque.

Overall this was such a subtle mani that I didn't feel the need to change it even though I started my new position on the next day. It wore super well, around 5 days with mininal tipwear.
Anyway I hope you enjoyed reading today's post and thanks again to Cheetarah for chosing me as winner to this amazing giveaway :D

Hola niñas! Últimamente no he andado con muchas ganas de hacer nailart así que ultimamente escojo esmaltes que por sí solos son interesantes y no necesitan nada más. Hoy les traigo una combinación de Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces (jelly con glitter morado) y Radiant Orchid de Smitten Polish (holográfico fucsia-morado). Es una bonita combinación y me acompañó por varios días así que bien, me gustó :) Gracias por leer!
Hi girls! Today I bring you one of the manis I wore in these past few weeks. I haven't been much inspired to do nailart (except for my graduation nails) so I went with some polishes that are pretty much amazing on their own.
On it's own is opaque in 2-3 coats but it's kinda hard to get a good glitter distribution and I had to fish out the circles and apply them to the nail with a toothpick. However, it's really pretty and the final result is worth the effot.
Thanks for reading!
