Swirls using Mash Plate 40

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Hola amigos!

Here I have stamping plate Mash-40.  I posted a purple mani yesterday on my Instagram using the swirls on this plate.  You can buy Mash plates here, Amazon & Ebay.  I bought these plates when they first came out in May 2012 for $12.99, its amazing how prices on these stamping plates have risen since.  I recommend you searching online for the best price before buying them.  Here is Plate Mash-40:


Ingredients in my Purple Swirl Mani:

1.  Orly Lollipop
2.  Orly La Vida Loca
3.  Orly Charged up
4.  Orly Bubbly Bombshell
5.  Mash plate 40
6.  Stamping color:  Sinful Colors Black on Black
7.  Base Coat:  Orly Bonder
8.  Top Coat:  Seche Vite


1.  First I applied my favorite Base Coat:  Orly Bonder.
2.  I applied Orly Lollipop to all my nails for my base.
3.  Now this is the fun part.  I only applied light brush strokes of the following colors:  La Vida Loca, Charged Up & Bubbly Bombshell.  In that same order. It almost looks like the Baggie Method explain here.  Here is the pic of my nails before stamping:


4.  After I achieved the effect I was looking for I added layer of top coat.  I did this to make a smooth surface for my stamping.  
5.  Then I applied my stamping using Mash-40 and Sinful Colors Black on Black. 
6.  I finished my design with Seche Vite.

Here is My Purple Swirl Mani!


I hope you enjoyed!

The China Glaze Texture Collection

Thursday, April 25, 2013


I have been stalking my local Sally Beauty Supply for about two weeks looking for these polishes.  Finally I bought them yesterday! They are super cool! I love when I find special effect polishes.  For me the China Glaze Textures are very unique because I have nothing similar to them.  They are my first texture polishes.

I had so much fun applying them and watching them dry to rough sandy texture.  I had no problem applying them and I was amazed on how fast they dried.  At first I thought they would be difficult to remove, but they weren't.  I just applied a cotton ball soaked in acetone on my nail waited a few seconds and I slide the cotton ball down toward the tip of my nail removing almost all the polish.  I was left with a little residual of the sand like material on my nails but it washes off with soap and water.  Sally Beauty Supply has a great sale going on, they have a Buy 2 and Get 1 free on all their polishes.   Here are the beautiful colors: 

1.   Toe-Tally Texture
Pueen plate 05 and stamping color:  Sinful White Snow Me White.


2.  Bump & Grind
Pueen plate 15 and stamping color:  Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

3.  In The Rough
Pueen 24 and stamping color:  Kleancolor Neon Aqua.

4.  Itty, Bitty & Gritty
Pueen plate 15 and stamping color:  Sinful Colors Snow Me White.


5.  Unrefined
Pueen plate 22 and stamping color:  Sinful Colors Black on Black.


6.  Of Coarse!
Pueen plate 25 and stamping color:  Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

What do you think about this collection?  Will you buy some?
