LA Colors Vampy Valentine

Hey Everyone!!! Today gets two posts since I am finishing up the Valentine's Day Manis. This one will be short and sweet.

This is the first, I should have probably posted it first, mani I did with the MoYou Festive 20 plate that I won from Karolyn of Nails of Aquarius. I was so excited to win this plate. It pretty much made my day, week and probably month! 

I started with a base of LA Colors Vampy. I absolutely love this polish.

The color is gorgeous and shiny and I didn't even have a top coat on the base for these pictures. 

The little bits and stuff around my nails are because I have been testing using hair glue around my nails to help with cleanup and I haven't quite mastered it yet. 

I need to find the rest of these Gel Like polishes because the ones I have tried are great. 

I used a random white polish for the stamping on this one as well as my Creative Stamper. There is a bit of a learning curve to the stamper and this was I believe the first time I used it so the stamping isn't perfect. 

I also messed up a bit on my middle finger so I tried to cover that up with another coat of Vampy and restamp. Unfortunately you can see a hint of the original stamping. Oops.

I love hearts so this mani was one of my favorites.

I love the cute falling hearts. Now that I have the hang of the stamper I need to try this image again and make it a little more crisp.

I still can't believe I won this plate. Karolyn is awesome and you should definitely check out her blog and facebook page!! She is super sweet and handled my extreme excitement quite well. I literally squealed when I realized I won. 

That's all for now :)


  1. Very nice! I haven't tried the hair glue trick yet--I don't do that many messy manis. Maybe if I ever learn to water marble properly...

    1. Thank you :) It would be amazingly good for water marbles I bet but I don't do those because they never come out good and are always messy. I tend to be messy when I paint my nails and the glue helps a ton lol I don't know why I can't paint cleanly by this stage in life. It is much easier for me to deal with the glue then trying to clean up with a brush and acetone, that always leads to disaster.


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
