Last night we had a 5.1 earthquake in SoCal which is a little scary but exhilarating at the same time. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t like destruction or the idea of people getting hurt, but it’s a scary and exciting feeling to know just what the Earth is capable of. The earthquake wasn’t strong enough to cause any major destruction besides some shattered nerves and some broken items that fell off shelves. Ever since then, we have been having a lot of aftershocks so I know that people are on edge about the whole thing. For as long as I can remember, I have been hearing about “the big one” that supposed to happen here in SoCal so I definitely hope that doesn’t really happen any time soon. So while the whole earthquake thing happened, I was working on my Stamping Saturdays mani, and I was struggling with a few ideas. The only thing that was easy to figure out was what polish I wanted to use as my base.
Bourjois Lavande Esquisse is such a gorgeous color, and it makes me sad that I can’t get this brand here in the states. Pooh!
For my stamping design, I decided to use one of my MoYou London plates (press sample). One thing to note is that this plate is labeled 02 on the website, but the actual physical plate is labeled 03. Kinda weird!
I like this image because it has a Mod feel to it, but I’m not that happy with the color combination. Now that I look at the design, I think a white base with that black stamp would have looked perfect. I don’t hate it, but I’m also not in love with it.
Today I don’t have much going on. I totally overslept and didn’t get up until like 9:30 and now I’m watching bad reality TV. I am going to get ready in a few minutes to go polish shopping (I know!), but I think my nail place may have some new stuff. Don’t forget to check out the other awesome Stamping Saturdays manis below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

I LOVE how this looks!! And that base is beautiful!! I need that in my nail polish life!
I was wondering if you have any tips on getting good stamping results? I’m kind of new to it and my always come out kind of messy! xD
*dreamy sigh* so pretty! I love the star pattern on the plate by the way… use that soon because I love stars and I want to see it in action but no rush 😀
Anyway like the shiny jelly looking blue on you and the stamping is aces as always

And I recognize this nail polish :p He’s beautiful =)
I hope you’re fine, and to talk to you soon !!!!!
Love from France
That base color!!!!! It is soooooo pretty. I think the color combo is nice, but maybe black and white would have looked even better!! What do I know? I pick the worst combos I swear. How are the moyou plates compared to BM and cheeky? As you probably read in the emails I’m about to throw them out a window.

My best friend and I were talking about the earthquakes yesterday. She said she’s sleeping like shit because of them. 🙁
That lavender is GORGEOUS and that stamp is cool…I feel like I haven’t seen anything like it before. I think that you’re right that a different base color would’ve driven the “mod” point home.
Uh…oversleeping? Bad reality tv? Polish shopping? Sounds perfect! Sign me up!
I am sorry that you are not in love with the color combo… but… I am!!! I am loving the purple and black. Normally not my favorite, but with the stamp design it looks great! If you have a moment, would you please link this up to my weekly beauty party? Please and Thank You
