Hi there, I’m Amanda visiting today from my blog https://daiziebugnails.wordpress.com I blog mainly as a hobby but would like to take it more seriously when my son starts school in a few years time. I am a trained nail technician but have hardly been able to work since qualifying due to ill health.
Today I have for you some simple stamped nail art on an A-England base colour. I hadn’t used A-England before but fell in love with their colours on Instagram. I ordered 3 colours directly from their website http://www.a-england.co.uk but have since found that you can buy them cheaper from www.hypnoticpolish.com if you spend enough money to justify the postage.
O.K, back to this mani - For the base colour I have used A England's ‘Kalinka' from their 'Russian Soul Collection’. It is a stunning lilac toned silvery metallic with hints of holographic. The formula was sightly thicker than your average indie polish so went on in two coats, in fact you could probably even just use one coat and be happy with it if you were in a rush.
For the stamping I used Models Own 'Chrome Indigo’ with the Born Pretty transparent stamper (which is my current go to stamper) and MoYou London stamping plate ‘Time Traveller 05’. I’m still not great at stamping so it is a bit wobbly but I still liked the out come.
I’d love to know what your thoughts are on A-England polishes? as at present I only own three shades.
Thanks for having me today Claire and thank you for reading. To see more of my work please pop over to my I.G. which is: https://www.instagram.com/daiziebug_nails (it is reasonably new) and my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/daiziebugnails
