Stamped Nail Art Design with Pueen and Londontown plus a Giveaway!

Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! As for me, I'm currently in Las Vegas for Cosmoprof North America and am looking forward to sharing my finds with you once I return home. Until then, I thought I would share my latest nail art design. Let's check it out!


I can hear it now: Wait, Jen, I thought you said nail art design.....

I know, I got a little ahead of myself since I am so excited about the final look, but I would never forgive myself if I didn't take a moment to share the most amazingly gorgeous red cream nail polish that I have been obsessing over.


Londontown is actually one of the brands here in Las Vegas, and while I was perusing my stash recently to do some nail art, this fabulous red captured my attention. Named Londoner Love, this polish boasts an ultra-smooth and creamy formula that I am smitten with. Just two quick coats and my nails are dazzling. Oh! And these photos were taken before I added top coat! Now this is one shiny beauty!


How pretty is this red polish?!? I actually felt a little bad about having to add to it for some nail art since it is exquisite on its own, but I already had a design in mind to try out.


Red, black, and white is one of my favorite colour combinations, and I don't believe I've ever used them together in a nail art design before. I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to break out my new Pueen stamping starter kit that I picked up at my Walmart, and after sitting for probably a month, I'm glad to give it some love!


The white and black stamping polishes are part of the Pueen stamping kit, and I was really impressed with both the polish quality and the image I tested on the plate. The only downside I experienced with this set is the bristles of the black polish are horribly messed up, and that did make getting the polish onto the plate a little trickier in addition to not making a huge mess returning the brush into the bottle. I used the included Pueen stamper to stamp the white polish but then switched to one of my clear-backed stampers to help me place the black stamping images shifted away from the white. I don't know what it is about double stamping like this that I am so drawn towards, but I love the effect it creates!


While I might have been a little apprehensive about partially obscuring Londoner Love, I really love the final look of this manicure!

And now for a little giveaway for my beloved readers!


I've talked about this Pueen stamping kit with several people, and I was surprised to discover it isn't readily available in a lot of Walmart stores. I guess stores are only getting a few boxes and they are selling quickly, but since mine had a second starter kit, I picked one up to giveaway. Also, because I love Londontown's Londoner Love so much, I wanted to include that too (a new bottle, I promise!) so you could create your own red, black, and white nail art looks too!

Until next time, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  8. Your stamping skills are legit, I love it! Honesty I love seeing all sorts of manicures and nail arts! Maybe creating something very fall inspired -- with greens and oranges and burnt reds!
