Catherine 267 Passionfruit swatches and review

PR sample

Hi beauties!

Today I would like to show you 267 Passionfruit from the Catherine Pacific Collection. Passionfruit is a beautiful deep purple shimmer colour that is right up my alley!

The challenge was to show the polish in a summery scene, which was indeed challenging as the weather has not been very summerlike so far. But I caught a little bit of sunlight recently, and it was worth it to show the shimmer of this beauty! And for the even more summerly look, I tried a floral stamping and I actually liked how it turned out!

Application was great, two easy coats was all I needed. The wear was satisfying, I got 3 full days out of it. Removal was easy (no staining). So, I’m very happy with this polish and will definitely wear it again!

The pics below show Passionfruit in two coats with one coat of HK top coat.

I hope that summer will be here soon – I desperately need some sun! Happy weekend to everyone!

Thank you, Catherine, for providing Passionfruit!

Clear Jelly Stamper – Stamping on Nicole by OPI Star of the Party

Hi beauties!

Today just a quick post with some underexposed pictures from my recent stamping nailart! I’m pretty excited to show you this, because without my new clear jelly stamper from Onlinhut I would have never been able to place the patterns so accurately on my nail. Because the stamper has a clear/transparent filling, you can see through the stamper where your design will end up on the nail. Also, this stamper picks up all my designs perfectly without any effort, there is no warping or smudging and I didn’t even have to prime it! I’m head over heels in love with this stamper!

I used Nicole by OPI Star of the Party as a base (two coats) and stamped with Essence Colour and Go Pink & Proud which is wonderful for stamping! I finished with one coat of SV Fast Drying TC. Sorry for the bad light, but I haven’t figured out how to use my daylight lamp yet, so all I had was the cloudy lighting outside.

The plate I used was Moyou Explorer 03.

What do you think of my new hand posture? I’m never able to line up all for fingers in a nice looking way, so I thought a more relaxed pose maybe suits my hand anatomy a little better.
Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day!

Some stamping

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed my recent success with stamping – I had tried a lot of times before, always failing miserably. It seems like I have finally found some equipment that works for me and today I would like to show you my first two stamping manicures that are actually presentable.

First is a purple stamping manicure for which I used the following:

  • Base colour: OPI Planks a lot
  • Stamping colour: Zoya Lael
  • B. loves plates B.03 mind blown stamping plate
  • B. loves plates scraper
  • B. loves plates stamper
  • Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat
