Today is friday and I don’t have to work <woohoo> so I wanted to play with my new MoYou stamping plate and have some fun ! Plus, I’m going to see the sexy Chris Hemsworth in the new Thor:The Dark World movie soon so I’m in a good mood. I think a bright bold happy mani is in order!
I’m wearing three coats of Phoebe which is a cool smooth ‘velvet matte’ polish by Zoya. It has some shimmer in there, but when it’s matte you don’t notice. I stamped a tree image over top in grey, Zoya Dove. Then I stamped the tree on top again using a dark blue creme called Jive by Oh My Golly. I like how the grey stamp underneath gives a neat shadow effect.
Lookit my new MoYou plate that I used for this manicure. When I ordered it pre-sale (it took a week or two before it shipped) it was called MOTHER NATURE 03 Plate, and that’s how it’s listed online. But take a look at my plate- it says LANDSCAPE 03 on it. Hmmmmm….
Weird mistake they made, but I am liking all the cute nature stuff in this plate !
After I stamped the grey and blue tree design then I topcoated it with seche vite. See how you can see alot of shimmer in my blue base color? The shimmer was not noticeable when Phoebe was matte, but once I topcoated you can really see tons of shimmer in there! I can’t decide if I like Zoya Phoebe better matte or shiny….. I took some photos of it matte which I can post later if anyone’s interested. My camera was like WHOA at how blue it was!
Well, I’m off to go see Thor. Have a nice weekend everyone! Talk soon!

Such a pretty manicure! 🙂 I love all the designs on the plate, too.
Thanks ! I hope I can get to use this plate a lot… so many cool designs 🙂
I have that same plate as well, plus plate 04. Both say Landscape Collection. And I used the same tops of trees last week *chuckles*. This looks lovely as well!
Like minds.. that’s cool 🙂
I would love to see it matte! I have one pink Zoya matte polish and I love it. I just ordered the re-released ones. Hope you enjoy looking at MY BABY DADDY’S movie. LOL!
Wow! That plate is soooo gorgeous! It’s like a painting. You did a amazing job with the blue shades. I love it
thanks Viv- I know, those plates are too cool!!!!! i want them all
They look really 3D and cool 😀 I must get back on pinterest asap and pin some more of your nails
So pretty 🙂 Love that MoYou plate… it’s going on my wishlist now!
Yes, I hope you get your hands on some of these plates! It looks like they are available on amazon too, but i think they may be cheaper on the moyou london site.
Brilliant blue mani!
Thor pt 2 was a little better than thor 1! 🙂
I was surprised, because sequels SUCK almost always compared to first parts! Thor 2 was sooo good.
And my dad was like, go to Greenwich tomorrow and check whether they cleaned it up! : D
haha! Yeah my mom was like, ‘funny how they ruin entire cities but never show if they build them back up’. lol
Haha, awww I love that comment : D So true. : P
This is beautiful! The stamping in two colours almost gives it a 3D look, love it!
really intricate and beautiful, the 3D effect is like lace casting a shadow. works really good with the icy blue colors.
p.s. that’s one thing that water-based can’t do: stamping.
I’ve never gotten into much water-based paint. Do you use paint alot?
I use only water-based polishes these days. they have pros and cons; some require religious prepping, some are easier to handle.
so far I’ve been doing nail art with those polishes; using a muji gel pen; with acrylic paint; with stickers.
BTW stickers work amazingly well with water-based, the edges really disappear and it looks better than with normal polish. probably because there are no dissolvants in water-based, and the sticker doesn’t curl.
stamping and taping didn’t work yet. but I’m determined 😀

What a cheery color! And thanks for showing that entire stamping plate, I’m always curious what the plates look like. That one looks like it’s got lots of different details!
