So, my birthday was last week. Yep...another year older and my fourth 29th birthday (ha!). I wanted to wear something super-duper awesome on my nails for the day, so I did some epic stamping. This technique has many different names: advanced stamping, reverse stamping, stamping decals, I can't believe these are really my nails stamping. Take your pick! For this mani, I did the decal method. I think Chanfie at Indian Ocean Polish has a great tutorial on this method, definitely check it out.
So on to the birthday mani! I used OPI "Fly" for the base. It is a gorgeous teal that really goes on smooth. This polish was from the Nicki Minaj collection. On my pinky, I used Freak Show Polish "Virgo", which is a microglitter textured polish. Using the stamping decal method, I created the cool designs on my thumb and ring finger with MoYou London "Explorer 03" plate. This is my most favorite stamping plate ever! It has so many designs just begging to be made into stamping decals. If you have not had the chance to experience MoYou London plates...put them on your wish list and bite the bullet for shipping. They are absolutely worth every penny!

Ok...enough jibber-jabber and onto the mani! I really, REALLY loved this manicure and would recreate it over and over again. Do you love it?
I am currently holding a birthday giveaway on Instagram which ends on January 28th. If you would like at chance a fabulous indie polish and your very own MoYou London plate, check out my page and do your best "McPolish Pose".
