OPI GelColor I'm Gown for Anything & MoYou London Fashionista 17

Hi friends! Here's OPI GelColor I'm Gown for Anything stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 17 in Color Club Eternal Beauty. I think I'll be doing a lot more holo stamping over cremes like this. I got so many compliments on it and I love how it turned out!

Kiesque Liquid Palisade Review

Today I have a review on Kiesque Liquid Palisade. This was the first product I saw when these nail barrier products came out and I really wanted to try it, but the price tag was a little to steep for me. When I was asked to review this product, I jumped at the opportunity! Liquid Palisade is a product you apply around your nails and cuticles for a mess and hassle free clean up. I chose to try it out with a gradient and some stamping.

After removing the Liquid Palisade. There's minimal clean up left. That's as good as it's going to get with a gradient and stamping!

I used OPI Let's Be Friends, Small + Cute =❤️,  & Look at my Bow and stamped using MoYou London Bridal 06 in Mundo de Unas Black. 

Before trying out Liquid Palisade, I would use Liquid Latex that I purchased from Amazon. I liked liquid latex because you get a ton of product (4 oz) for about $9, but it dries super slow and I have to apply it with a Q-tip because it doesn't come with a brush and it also ruined a nail brush I tried to apply it with. Liquid Palisade is more expensive, but it applies so much easier with the brush that it comes with and dries so fast. The only cons about Liquid Palisade are that it's a bit pricey ($14 for 0.08 oz) and sometimes when you use it with stamping, removal of the LP takes a little bit of the stamped image along with it if it's near the sides of your nail. Other than that I really enjoyed using this product and I find myself using it more often than my Liquid Latex now. You can purchase this product here for $14.

OPI GelColor Fearlessly Alice & MoYou London Alice in Wonderland 04

Happy Friday! Here's a mani I did back in May. I was hoping to post it around the time Alice Through the Looking Glass came out, but I'm so bad at making time to sit down, edit my pics, and get stuff posted. 

I used OPI GelColor Fearlessly Alice and stamped using MoYou London Alice in Wonderland 04 in MoYou London Beach House. It was my first time using a stamping polish from MYL. It was okay. It's a bit better than regular polish, but definitely doesn't meet Mundo de Unas standards. I'm not mad though because MYL plates are everything!

OPI New Orleans Water Marble

Hi beauties! Sorry it's been awhile. I was really busy on the weekends last month and I also went on vacation to Cancun with Mr. Heartnat. We had a great time getting spoiled at the resort we stayed at, exploring Chitzen Itza, and partying at Coco Bongo!

Today I have a water marble I did back in May. I tried using a new topcoat, Poshe, to see if it would make my polish last longer than Seche Vite. It didn't last longer for me and it smudged my water marble since it's not as thick and easy to float on the nail. I've smudged water marbles with Seche, it was just a bit worse with this one. I used OPI Crawfishin' for a Compliment, Suzi Nails New Orleans, Spare Me a French Quarter, and She's a Bad Mufaletta. I'm not crazy about how this turned out, but I like the colors together.
