Winnie The Pooh Nails: Stamping plate QA3

Tuesday, May 7, 2013


Tonight I posted on my Instagram a Winnie The Pooh Mani!  I used stamping plate QA3.  This plate has cute Winnie The Pooh designs on them.  I purchased this plate a long time and never used it until tonight.  Today I received some more new Krafty Gurl Polishes and as soon as I saw Sassy Steeler (a beautiful golden yellow and black glitter polish) it inspired me to use this stamping plate.  You can find this stamping plate online.  Try searching on Amazon or Ebay.  Here is the plate:

Ingredients for this cute mani:

1.  Sally Hansen Lightening 
2.  KraftyGurl Sassy Steeler
3.  Stamping plate QA3
4.  Stamping color:  Rimmel Black Satin
5.  Dotting Tools to fill in Winnie the Pooh Shirt and Dot his flower.
6.  Sally Hansen Cherry Red for his shirt
7.  For the Flower I used China Glaze Peachy Keen & China Glaze Pink-ie Promise.
5.  Seche Vite top coat


I hope you enjoyed!

Pueen Plates 2013 Love Elements

Monday, May 6, 2013


When I heard that Pueen Cosmetics where going to launch new stamping plates I was very excited! I knew that I just had to have them.  I have their first Collection Pueen 2013 Sumptuous Gallery and love them.  The majority are all full nail designs which I personally love!   The first Collection has 25 plates but this one has 24 plates.  Each plate measures about 1.8" (5.5 cm in diameter).  Also all Pueen Stamping plates now come with a cute little case for easy storage and great size to carry with you!  The Case is sturdy and comes in different colors.  The plastic sleeves are flimsy, but they do serve their purpose. I wish my first set of Pueen included the small case, but at the time I purchased them they did not include it. Here is the pic of the case:

You can purchase these plates on Pueen Cosmetics site , Amazon here, or Ebay here .  These plates are beautiful.  They are well etched and have a protective backing.  If Pueen continues to make more collections I will continue to buy them! I really love the quality of these plates.  Here are some plates and manicures I have done with this set.

Krafty Gurl Designs Nail Polishes


I purchase these beauties from @kraftygurldesigns I found her on Instagram. She creates beautiful Indie Glitter polishes.  You can purchase her nail polishes from her Etsy Store here.    I purchase two and she sent me a free mini.  That was so kind of her! Thank you!

Colors from left to right:   It's a Fiesta, summer Days & Liberty Belle. 

I love them all!  They are so fun!  Application was a breeze.  No picking and placing glitter.   You get a lot of glitters on the nail with one swipe of the brush! I have other indies & glitter polishes which I have had to fish out glitters, but it was not the case with these beauties!  Here are the three swatched:

1.  Liberty Belle
Base Color:  Orly Snow Cone.  Stamping plate:  Pueen44.  Stamping Colors:  Sally Hansen Blue It & Sally Hansen Cherry Red.

2.  Summer Days
Base Color:  China Glaze Starboard.  XL Stamping plate C.  Stamping Color:  Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

3.  It's A Fiesta!
Base Color:  Orly Liquid Vinyl.  Stamping plate BM21.  Stamping Color:  Essie Good As Gold.

I hope you enjoyed the Manicures done with these beautiful Indie Polishes made by Krafty Gurl Designs!
