Hey Joycelyn Doty W.!
Thanks! :) You should try nail stamping over a duochrome like this polish. It's always a hit. :)

Those look awesome! I like duochromes used as a base under a design... it makes people do a double take sometimes cuz they can't quite put their finger on what's so cool :)
Thank you, and I agree! ;) Do you have a favourite duochrome?
I only have *gasp!* one!! It's "Not Like The Movies." I really have my eye on the Model's Own Beetlejuice polishes but it's not exactly in the budget after Christmas ifyaknowwhatimean ;) haha I NEED more duochromes :D

Hehe, I know what you mean. :) But those Beetlejuice polishes are sooo pretty! Maybe for your birthday? They're not limited edition shades, so they should still be around.
Funny timing. I just reviewed, swatched, and put a Konadicure over OPI Not Like the Movies in today's blog post! :)
That IS funny! I'll be seeing them when I check your blog later, like I do everyday! :)

I love this nail polish too! You have wonderful taste in nail polishes. I don't own thing like these.

Hehe, it could be that I'm OBSESSED with nail polish. ;) Oh, you should really try Nubar polishes - they have the best multichrome and duochromes! The only thing is that they're hard to find in physical stores, so online is the way to go unless you're lucky finding a store near you that sells their polishes.

Wow!! it's so very well done! Looks amazing!
I wish I could do my nails like that!

Thank you so much! :) You can do this design if you have nail-stamping supplies. It doesn't take too long. (I have a link to my Konad Tutorial if you're interested. If you go to the above link to my blog post, you'll find it.)

I guess I don't fully understand stamping. Do you need some sort of device? Your nails look amazing btw
Thanks for the compliment. :)
Yes, after painting my nails then I used a nail-stamping plate with an argyle print. It's by Konad.
You can see more swatches of the manicure I did on my blog, and if you scroll down this page, you'll see a link to a Konad Tutorial I did when I first got into nail stamping. I think I posted that the 2nd time I tried nail stamping, so it really shows you some issues that you could run into if you're new to Konad. :) Hope it helps. There are also step-by-step photos for my Konad Tutorial: http://www.swatchandlearn.com/nail-...

Thank you so much! I'm still learning a lot when it comes to nail stamping, so I'm glad to hear that you think I did a good job! YAY! Practice really does pay off.
Yes, that duochrome is pretty. Nubar's amazing for those types of polishes. :)
omg i love this!!
Thanks. You should try doing this sometime. It's easier than it looks. :)
how do i even begin?? lol
First you paint your nails with a duochrome polish. Then you do nail stamping over it. (I used Konad Image Plate m60 for the argyle.)

This color and pattern looks amazing!
Thank you, Nils! :) You should try it sometime - it's so much fun to wear!

These are amazing, and that pattern is to die for! I'd love to have my nails like that :)
Thank you so much! :) Glad you liked it, Amy! Have you ever tried nail stamping like this before?
No I haven't, never found the things to do it where I live, as it's a small island. I've always wanted to try though! :)
There are a bunch of great etailers that carry nail-stamping supplies: WowSoCool.com, BundleMonster.com, and OCNailArt.com to name a few. That's where I get the majority of my stuff from since I can't find them in physical stores where I live, either.
Oh I see, I will try there then, thank you so much! :)
gorgeous!! love that polish
Hey Mindy! :) Yes, it's a really beautiful shade. Love duochromes!
