LoL mani: Xerath the Magus Ascendant #HePicksMyPolish

Xearth is a mage type champion in the game LoL. He is armor held together by electricity and some chains. Quite fun to look at and to play since his ability is to anchor himself to the ground and with that his range increases dramatically. Very tricky if someone jumps at you and you want to get away :)

So I wanted to make a look that looks like lightening trapped in armor. I think I kin doff succeeded. I hope you like it :)


Xerath the Magus Ascendant


For the base I used Catrice Hip queens wear blue jeans, for the layers of stamps I used Color club Over the moon, Essie Blue rhapsody, Essence stamp me!black and The boy next door. The stamps I used are BM305, BM211 and m70. For the textured armor I used Zoya London and Essence Here is my number.




My favorite Xerath quotes:
''Bound but not broken.''

TNPC#8: Untried plate - QA65

QA65 is a stamping plate I got from Bornpretty store and I used the 2 swirly designs to overlap and create this amazing main. It reminds me of a fancy royal sofa in a French castle :) The base is China Glaze OMG a UFO, the stamping polishes are Essence The boy next door and Kiko Gold

Patterns like these are my favorite kind and thank God for the invention of the stamps, because I am just to lazy to free hand draw stuff like this :)

#MoYou10k - Fire (and Ice)

Today's #MoYou10k theme is fire and ice. But I don't have any ice stamps and the flames I already used HERE. Therefore I used Orly Starburst as base and since it's a cold white jelly it will serve as 'the ice' portion of the challenge. Over it I stamped with Barry M Passion fruit and MoYou London Explorer 21. The mandala pattern creates a type of pretty flame pattern I think.

I love this look <3


Here is a cool inspirational picture I found *hypnotic*

#MoYou10k - Cute


For me the cutest things on this planet are huge animals like elephants, rhinos and hippos. And the MoYou London Explorer 21 plate features the cutest Ganesha stamp. So I did something simple and cute. The base is Kiko Anuse, for the stamping I used Barry M Blackberry and Essence Forever mine. 

As you can see from the picture spam below I posted the progression of the mani. So let me just stop here and praise the Essence Gel at home top coat because with 2 coats I was able to smooth out the textured base and the stamps didn't smudge at all. The only down side is that the top coat is a bit yellow so the mani got a bit of a yellow hue to it.

 MoYou London Explorer 21


Texture with stamps before top coat. It reminds me of real statues :)


Here is a swatch of Kiko Anuse, I think it's a dupe for the NOPI sands.

#MoYou10k - Childhood



As a kid I watched 2 shows like it was my religion who are polar opposites to each other - Sailor moon and Dragon ball :) Since I have no clue how to make a dragon ball mani I did a Sailor moon mani! 
I went a bit abstract this time and I did a pastel galaxy type of mani because the colors remind me of the transformation clips from the show :) And for the stamps I used MoYou London Comics 05 the one with the Anime theme. How perfect is that? :)


Here is the clip of one of the coolest transformations in the show :) All the colors inspired my nails <3











The colors for the galaxy I used are Catrice Make fast at Tiffany's, LA Girl Love letters, Yes love F06 and G2-3, Essence Over the rainbow.The stamped stars are done with Essence stamp me!White.

BornPretty store review - Card Stud Nail art Decoration

I got these amazing Card Stud Nail art Decoration from the Bornpretty store. They are all gold and come in 4 traditional shapes. But they are quite big and have a large flat surface. So I decided to stamp over them :) The base is a simple OPI Stay the night and I added a bit of extra polish right under the stud to attach it. 

I love how it turned out! Time to go listen to some Lady Gaga Pokerface :)





Don't forget to visit bornpretty store and their nail art assortment. On the right of my blog you can see the banner that offers 10% off the entire purchase with the code :)

TNPC#6: Texture - Perfect Sand

Prefect Sand (no name) is a neon green textured polish I got a while back. I ordered it so I could pair it with Essence crack me! black, because the crackle effect looks ever cooler when paired with a textured polish. It looks like some type of toxin is oozing through my nails. So I topped it with BM418 and Star gazer no.232.

Now I only wish I had better aiming skills when it comes to stamping :)
