What do you think of the pixie dust polishes? I'm unconvinced by the textures, but that could be because any unusual texture on my nails drives me bonkers.

They're really pretty! I too must add top coat, but even with top coat, they're still unique and worth the buy.

To kind of go with the champagne-gold on my toes, I just did a mani with Zoya Nicole. It's a nice summery strawberry color, but I'm not loving it on my hands... I do like it when I wear it as a pedi. Is anyone else like this? Are there colors you like better on your hands/toes? Am I just weird?

kitteh, I love the orange and blue mani the most! Maybe I'm on an orange kick lately, though, because:

(not my pic)

Flower Beauty Eye of the Tiger Lily. I really love this color. It's pretty sheer, so it requires either a base coat or several coats, but it went on smooth and dried quickly. Also, it looks like Tang, which is awesome.

I always default to dark blue. Right now I'm wearing Depend #374 which is a nearly black deep blue with lighter blue shimmer. It's really pretty in sunlight. I seem to be getting a lot of tip wear but I'm not sure if it's the polish or the current length of my nails that's the culprit.

Ah! My last mani chipped at the ends pretty quick last time I thought. After reading your post I'm reminded my nails were a little longer this time . . .

<3 and also *high five*

i went to sally today to try and get a dotting tool... wouldn't you know it, they're currently having a sale on the ONLY dotting tool they carry, and they were sold out. grump.

while i was there i very nearly bought three orly polishes (sparkling garbage was on sale for $3.99, plus i was also eyeing up nite owl and/or buried treasure), but i decided to put a pin in it and try to stay on task. heh.

I think that looks darling, appifanie!! So summery and cheery!

I'm wearing Don't Burst my Bubble (light pink) on my hands and You're Such a Budapest (lilac/periwinkle) on my toes. Kind of boring, but I like it. I took myself out for a celebratory manicure/pedicure. ;)

Can anyone recommend a good base coat? I don't have one at present.

I could do with a base coat rec too. I'm fed up of the Superdrug one I've been buying because the brush can't reach the bottom half of the bottle, such a waste!

I just put on OCC's Grandma. It's a super pretty bright coral that actually looks pretty similar to swatches I've seen of Butter London Macbeth, which may kill my desire for that one... for a while. This is my first time using OCC's polishes (I have one other, Pond, that I haven't worn yet), and while I can't speak to wear time yet, application was great.

Regarding base coats... I've heard great things about Orly's Bonder, but I haven't tried it yet myself. I have a bottle waiting at my best friend's house that I keep forgetting to swing by and grab.

I switch between Orly Bonder and CND Stickey, basically whichever happens to be at the store I'm at when I need base coat. I think Color Club have a rubberized base coat too, but I've never tried it. China Glaze might too.

CND Stickey base coat is the best I have found. Cult Nails' Wicked Fast is the very best top coat

Another vote for Zoya Anchor. Switching over to Zoya's color lock system has really extended the wear time of most my manis. Dry time is a little longer but I get so much more chip-free time.

I got my stamping plates in the mail! I got the Konad brand, since that seems to be regarded as the top of the line

Here is my second attempt...the first was so bad I started over. I think they are ok! This hand anyway. The other hand is kinda forked haha. The stamps will take some practice, but they are super fun. I am not good enough for hand drawn art (yet!) but I think this is much more challenging than transfers, so I take some pride in doing it.

Anyone else into stamping?

Sorry for the yucky pic. Imgur won't let me crop on my iPad, and I don't wanna turn on the computer.

Yay, Chicki! They look great :) I haven't been stamping as much lately but I did some the other week and remembered how fun it is :) And good work going with Konad, they are one of the best. Cheeky is also good, I haven't tried Bundle Monster or any of the other brands.

Zoya (I prefer Get Even to Anchor), Orly Bonder, and right now I am using Dazzle Dry. Barry M have a 2-in-1, I bought it for my mum but I haven't tried it.

Thanks guys! The pic is bad, they look much better IRL.

The stamp seems small though. It won't cover my thumbnail or middle finger nail, even when cut short. And my double stamping method is not very good yet.

Anyone know if other brands have bigger stamps maybe?
