Stamping Saturdays #67




Look here, California: I know it’s summer and all, but can you please give me a break? I don’t want to be sitting here in my living room and start sweating for no reason. I guess I will still have to put up with this heat for another 2 months so I’m just going to try to think happy thoughts of cooler weather. In my mind, I’m going to start moving into fall nail polish collections that will make me think of cool evenings and beautiful chilly mornings. For Stamping Saturdays I decided to use three polishes from an upcoming fall collection from Bellaluna Cosmetics. Let me show you  what color I used for my base.

12This smoky near black gray is Bellaluna Cosmetics Near Dark. This smoky gray has shimmery flecks that make it look so pretty and interesting. The formula is rather opaque and you can almost get away with one coat if you’re precise with your application.

5For my stamped decal accent nail, I decided to use there three gorgeous colors together: Sparkling Cranberry, Autumn Woodlands and Near Dark.

34As much as I love the look of decals, they are a huge pain in the ass. I also get irritated with Konad stamping polish smearing no matter how much top coat I use or how lightly I float the polish on my nails. This image is from Born Pretty plate  BP-L003–have I told you how much I love these cheapie plates? They are very inexpensive and the quality is great. If you watch out for sales, you can get them at an even better price.

So what do you think? I am going to have swatches and a review of these Bellaluna polishes next week so make sure to check back for that. Besides trying to stay cool, I don’t have too much going on this weekend and that suits me just fine. Well, I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for the visit, and I will catch up with you soon!

  1. It’s finally cooled down here to 105degrees, so I’m glad for that. Fall collections are tempting to wear, and I’m ready for the change.

  2. What a beautiful manicure. I just tossed out an entire bottle of top coat due to the konad polish smearing. I made the decal the day before and i thought it was a crappy top coat. Maybe it was simply crappy Konad polish and not my top coat after all.

  3. I think you are actually as miserable in heat as I am, lol. What stamping polishes do you recommend? I have been wanting to buy my first few to try out but can’t decide which ones – konad seems to be gospel in everything I read but I don’t want to mess around I just want what works! I’ve heard you can leave the lid off any opaque polish for a few days and get the same result.

  4. Love the colors in the accent nail! I’m in southern California too and HATE the heat, this has been a horrible 2 weeks of 100° + !! Can’t wait for fall, but I’d settle for some 90° days, that would be like fall in CA, right?! Looking forward to your swatches of other shades from this brand.

  5. I’m with you on the heat! It’s awful here in Florida!
    Those polishes are so pretty. I can’t wait to see the swatches of the other two!
