GOT Polish Challenge: Valentines - Lavender, white and MM31


Hello everyone!



For this Golden Oldie Thursday, I picked OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. This OPI is a few years old, so no vintage polish today. Then I stamped with Konad SN White and the same stamping plate that you saw in my last blog post; MM31 from Messy Mansion:





As you see, this full nail image is also very detailed, and perfect for both tiny nails like mine and for those with long nails and wide nail beds. I used the purple rectangular stamper again. I have very curved nails, and this time I tried to roll the stamper sideways. It stamped perfectly, but then I managed to get some white polish on the index nail! :-( I tried to remove it, but now that I look at the pictures, I see that there's still some left...

I've written about Lucky Lucky Lavender and showed lots of photos earlier here. I have no idea why it's currently my most viewed blog post.







Here are the Valentine's Day nails I've made so far:

Valentine's Day nails 1: Heart of a Vampire
Valentine's Day nails 2: Purple holo with red hearts
Valentine's Day nails 3: Black holo+ holo glitter+ black hearts
Valentine's Day nails 4: Black/ white rhinestone hearts+ 3 Halo Hues
Valentine's Day nails 5: Hearts with Sweet Dreams
Valentine's Day nails 6: Hearts with Gold and Raindrops
Valentine's Day nails 7: Black Hearts & Sparkling Venus
Valentine's Day nails 8: Love is Love - Pastel Rainbow Hearts

And below you can see which old nail polishes the other participants used for their Valentine's nail art.

  3. Love the stamping! I think I need to get konad white... I've tried other white polishes for stamping but it didn't turn out as well!

    1. Thank you! :-) I'm very pleased with Konad White. It's the only one I've tried, but I have seen good swatches of Mundo de Unas stamping polish.

    1. Thank you! :-) The squishy soft stampers made stamping much easier for me, although I still struggle to position a image, and to get straight lines. I got a lot of help from the softness of the stamper. And I found a way to roll the rectangular stamper sideways that worked for my curved nails this time, but I was surprised that the stamper picked up so much of the image. It also helps that the Messy Mansion plates are very well etched (Konad quality). Usually I topcoat before stamping, so that it's easier to redo the stamping without starting from the beginning, and I redo and redo if I'm not pleased with the result. I love the pattern too.
