I Heart New York Nails

Hello all,

I have been fairly quite on social media since the week before last because I was away, so it seems like ages since I last posted anything properly, but this week I wanted to share with you my nails to match my holiday.

I'm sure you've guessed from the title of the post where I went; the fabulous New York.  And it's true, I really do love it!


I used my MoYou Tourist 02 plate for a quick, but super effective design.  I have been to New York before and visited The Statue of Liberty, but this time I was lucky enough to get tickets to go inside and stand on the plinth (I just missed out on crown tickets - drat!).  I thought it was only fitting that I stamp Liberty herself on my thumb nail on one hand.  And what better background for my picture?


On my other hand I decided to stamp the American flag.  This is the first time I have tried stamping where I've coloured the design with different polishes.  I don't think I did too badly, but there is room for improvement.  Has anyone got any tips for how best to scrape the excess polish away when doing this so the colours don't all blend?

Times Square was the backdrop for this hand and it's a must do visit if you haven't been before.  There are so many lights, so if you're anything like me and love anything sparkly or shiny, it's the place to go.

I used a white base on all nails with Models Own Snow White, which has been my go to polish of the year I think.  It's been the only colour nail polish that I have ever used a whole bottle of before it's gone gloopy.  I stamped the I heart NY on my other nails using Graffiti Nails Jet and Barry M Red.

And just because I do love New York so much here's a quick picture from my trip


Thanks for stopping by
Aimée x
