Nails: Golden Swirls

Hey all, hope you had a good weekend! Here's a quick post for the mani I was sporting for most of last week. I just did some simple stamping on top of my Nails Inc ~ Basil Street swatch from my last post.

I hate the British weather, it's so hard to get good lighting for photos now that it's getting into winter!

Gold Swirl Manicure

Here's what I used
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
Nails Inc ~ Basil Street
Barry M Nail Effects - Foil ~ Gold
Sally Hansen Mega Shine

The design was stamped using my new stamping plate which I got from DHGate, a chinese wholesale website. I think it's a copy of a Konad plate but for less than a fifth of the price I thought it would be worth a try. I've only used this one design from it so far but I'm definitely happy with the results. I actually have some dupes of some of the designs on official Konad plates so I may do a side by side comparison at some point. If you're interested, the plate I bought is still available here - DHGate ~ Large Nail Stamping Plate


  1. So pretty! I love this stamp!

  2. My names will never look so pretty, but those are fantastic. If I get to come to kins in the future you need to give me a manicure. In return for cake of course. x

  3. Thanks Fingers!

    That sounds like a good plan Akemi, was just talking to Kim recently about having a girly pampering weekend :3 Plus I never say no to cake

  4. Oooo that's funky. Not sure it would suit me though... uncle b.....
