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 :)

Hey Nicole!

Thank you, and I agree! ;) Do you have a favourite duochrome?

Jan 09, 2012

Nicole M.

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

Mary S.

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.

Hey Lisa!

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!

Hey Ish!

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

Mary S.

Hey Lauren!

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-...

Mary S.

Hey Soo!

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!!

Mary S.

Hey Julieta!

Thanks. You should try doing this sometime. It's easier than it looks. :)

Sep 06, 2011

Julieta M.

how do i even begin?? lol

Sep 07, 2011

Mary S.

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.)

Amy G.

These are amazing, and that pattern is to die for! I'd love to have my nails like that :)

Sep 05, 2011

Mary S.

Thank you so much! :) Glad you liked it, Amy! Have you ever tried nail stamping like this before?

Sep 06, 2011

Amy G.

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! :)

Sep 06, 2011

Mary S.

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.

Amy G.

Oh I see, I will try there then, thank you so much! :)
