Holy Shapes - bring up the neon colors for spring time

Holy Shapes is a rather new collection of MoYou London stamping plates. I like their clean and geometric style and I couldn't wait to try them out.

Today I did something rather simple because I'm quite busy. Yet I'm still no pro in stamping and it doesn't look perfect up to know but I believe that practice makes perfect. Well about two years ago I couldn't paint my nails at all. There was more polish around my nail as actually on them and it always looked really like a mess.

Now I'm pround how far I came and I think in a year from now my stamping attempt will also look cleaner and nicer.



Items used:

Color Club "Where's the soiree"
Color Club "French Tip"
China Glaze "Bottoms up"
China Glaze "Celtic summer"
MoYou London Holy Shapes 01
nail art brush


I started by painting my nails white. I still use Color Club "French Tip" as a white because I really like it a lot. I had some struggles finding my perfect white, not because of the color but because of the formula. I first had essie "blanc" but I wasn't really happy with it. Although I always closed my bottle properly it became sticky after a week! After a week! This shouldn't actually happen. Well now I'm happy with the white I've found. This time I tried to stamp with my black polish by Color Club. I stamped the design and let it dry on my stamper. With pink and yellow I filled out the empty spaces between the triangles and let it dry. I applied a layer of top coat over it and when it was dry I peeled it off. This was my finished decals I had to stuck on. So I again took the white polish, made a second layer on my nails and immediately stuck the decal on. I filed away the access around my nail and added a layer of top coat.

I did another design with this method and I try to film it. As soon as I figured out how to make the video the way I want it too I'll post it and you see a step by step video tutorial

Hope you like my design. Lots of love!
