Ancient Greek Vase Nail Art
Today I have a very unusual mani to show you! If you love history and archaeology as I do, you will surely appreciate this greek vase inspired mani!
For this manicure I used the plate Explorer 18 by MoYou London, which contains 18 greek inspired patterns. Many MoYou plates come in two versions: one for short nails and one with less patterns but bigger for long nails. I have obviously bought the one for short nails, but if you wish to get the plate for long nails then you should go for Explorer 9.
I stamped over an orange/terra cotta nail polish: my choice was Serenity from the Zen Collection by Mi-Ny.
To stamp I used the Crystal Clear Stamper by MoYou London and the black Ya Qi An stamping polish. I am a little bit disappointed because the designs didn’t transfer crisply on all the nails, but I really want to try to do this mani again, hoping to get a better result! Generally both the plate and the stamping polish worked great, but I had some problems with the stamper, which is quite squishy and sometimes it can distort the design a little bit (I had to try many times before getting perfectly horizontal stripes!). I think it’s my fault, and not stamper’s: probably I have to learn better how to use it.
I used the Wet ‘n’ Wild matte top coat to complete the manicure, I already reviewed it for you here: Review: Wet ‘n’ Wild – Wild Shine – Matte Top Coat.
MoYou London plates can be bought from many online shops, but personally I prefer to buy them directly from the english MoYou London shop, because they have the whole range of MoYou plates and because they offer free shipping after a certain price. I have told you about my shopping experience on their website on this post: MoYou London Online Shop: la mia esperienza!.
If you are in Italy (especially in Northern Italy) you can find Mi-Ny physical stores and buy nail polishes directly from there. But, if you can’t find a Mi-Ny store near to you, you can buy their nail polishes from their official website (they ship internationally!). Plus, if you buy from their online shop, you can use the code INFLUENCER10%OFF to get a 10% off discount on your order! This code is valid only for November 2016.
Despite of some mistakes and imprecisions, I generally liked this manicure: I really want to do it again soon and to try to make it look better!
See you on Monday, when I’ll show you the Zen Collection by Mi-Ny!
