Saturday's Stamping ft Fantasy Fire

Currently listening to: Super Bass by Nicki Minaj

Good morning girls!

Let's start the weekend on a high note with a pretty manicure featuring the elusive Max Factor Fantasy Fire :-)

I decided to use H&M Fashionista as my base before layering a coat of Fantasy Fire on top of it.

In real life, Fantasy Fire is really very pretty and adds dancing specks of red to my nails when worn on top of this purple polish. Unfortunately the photos do not do it justice. Next time I'll layer it over a different colour to see if I can capture the colour-changing glory with more success.

For my stamping I used Barry M Nail Effects in gold and Born Pretty Store image plate m65. I really like these image plates; a fraction of the price of Konad plates yet I've had no problems with quality. Oh and please ignore the ripples in my ring finger nails. These were not that obvious in reality!

What do you think girls? Have you joined the Fantasy Fire craze?

Bye for now,
Laura

  3. So pretty! Fantasy Fire works very well over Barry M Indigo if you haven't tried that combination already.
