simple, Victorian-ish mani

Hey guys!
I'm taking a break in between studying for my final tomorrow to blog. Tomorrow is the last day of my Maymester class, and then i've got Friday and the weekend to relax before another summer class starts up :/

I had a go at stamping again today. 
This is one of the areas of the nail world that I need to work on the most, but practice makes perfect! Or so they say...

Okay, so awhile ago I bought a couple of the polishes Maybelline just released in their new nail polish line. I've been itching to try one of them & see what they're like, and since it's been awhile since I did any stamping I decided to combine the two.

Here's 'Chiffon Chic' with Konad stamping plate m57 & Konad stamping polish in black.

'Chiffon Chic' was surprisingly awesome! I mean it just looked liked a typical pink creme, but it totally exceeded my expectations. It's a lovely, Barbie pink creme that applied really well. I used 2 coats here. I also wore this mani for 3 days, & it barely chipped at all- which is a LOT more than I can say about some polishes that cost triple what it did. so wow!

So I seem to have the hardest time aligning the stamper on the same place on each of my nails. The design was supposed to be on the right side of each nail, but some are more towards the middle, diagonal, or even backwards LAWL. i'm a n00b.

You can see the the bubbling of 'Chiffon Chic' on some nails, and I think that was due to one the polish drying while I was still trying to apply the same coat (I was sitting directly in front of the vent, so I'm wondering if that's what caused it...).

Anyway, the stamp really reminded me of the Victorian era, for some reason. I like the dainty -ness and simplicity of it :)

What do you guys think?


  1. This is really cute! I've never had luck with stamps, so I tend to stay away from them xD

  2. Really cute :) The easiest way I've found to try to get your stamps in the same place every time is if you use the sides of your finger as a guide. Just keep practicing, it gets easier :)

  3. i love it! beautiful color and i like the stamping, it looks like you tried to make it different :)

  4. I like this pink with the black on top!
