Round two of testing out the nail stamping bits I recently bought, and I thought the perfect theme would be cat-related (of course). I have a black and white cat, so naturally I HAD to go for black and white nails…
So let’s get started!
I started with the Holo Taco Long-Lasting Base again. I find that my nail polish doesn’t last anywhere near as long as I want it to (this is my own fault because I do the washing up without gloves along with other careless things!), so when I started using a base coat I did notice that it prolonged the life of my nail art. I still don’t find it lasts super long, but I always used to opt for gel polish which lasts forever so the time it stays on is noticeably different in comparison. I’m taking a bit of a break from using the UV lights for a while so I’ve using the Holo Taco polishes because of the stunning colours available and the amazing quality of the polishes. It’s safe to say I’ve absolutely not been disappointed.
One thing that I love about this base coat is that it dries SO fast so I’m not hanging around for ages waiting for it to dry – a big tick in the box for me!
Next I applied the black and white polishes to the nails I wanted them on. The black polish only needed one coat, and the white I used two because I hadn’t shaken the bottle properly (whoops!). These polishes glide on like a dream – yet I still seem to get them wonky around my irritated cuticles that shrivel when I use nail polish remover…
None-the-less they’re so easy to apply and I’m amazed by the colour payoff every time!
Then it was time to break out the beloved stamper again! Using the MoYou London Crystal Clear Stamper and Scraper – £9 with the MoYou London Kitty Collection 11 Plate – £5.99, I picked up the designs that I wanted to apply using the Whats Up Nails Stamping Polish in Neither Noir – £7.25. I found it much easier to pick up the design from this plate than the Celestial palette from my other post. Perhaps it was because it was the same brand as the stamper this time around, perhaps I just needed a bit more practise to get it right…
I topped it off with a Glossy Taco from Holo Taco and then it was finished! It was so easy to do and I love how it came out, so I was pretty pleased with this nail art.
I’d removed my previous nail polish, hence the dry skin around my nails, and I quickly reshaped them using a generic glass nail file from Amazon. I also used a generic cuticle pusher from Amazon to try and keep them tidy.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! See you next time.
