Thursday's Talons

Currently listening to: La-bas by Natasha St Pier

Hello girls!

Thank you for all your comments on my first blogging anniversary :-) Apologies for the timing of this post, it was planned for this morning but when I logged in to post, I had no access to my blog. That was scary. Fortunately the issue was resolved by the time I came home from work so here we are.

Today I have a manicure which I think is quite different to my usual style. To begin with, I used MUA shade 12 as my background colour. As you can see, it's very glossy.

However, the above picture is not an accurate representation of the colour. It is a lot dark in reality, more like the shade shown in the picture below

I then used Barry M Mushroom and stamped a full nail design. This was a mess. I recently acquired MASH stamping plates and although they're bigger than the first Bundle Monster set, some of my nails are still too long for the images.
To try and hide the mistakes in my stamping, I decided to stamp two bold flowers using white Konad Special polish

It's a messy manicure if you look closely but from afar it's not bad and I quite like it.

I like the idea of double stamping but I need to practise my full nail stamping.

Do you like this manicure? Do you prefer using full nail images when you stamp or a small, single image?

Bye for now,


  1. I love this manicure! You did an awesome job!

  2. Aw I think thats very pretty =) Love the layered stamping =)

  3. @The Girlie Blog, aw, thanks :-)

    @Sara, thank you! I'm really into layered stamping now! Don't know why it's taken me a year to try it!


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
