Blue x White Leaf Stamping Mani

March 19th Update: I replaced the video at the end of this post with YouTube version.

Another DRK stamping mani today. Seriously, I can't take my eyes off their plates, especially XL Designer 2. I've been wanting to wear Revlon Royal (I did swatch here) for a while, so I decided to pair up the DRK plate with this polish.

I started off with Revlon Royal for all nails and stamped a leafy pattern from DRK XL Designer 2 plate using Mundo de Uñas White for middle finger, ring finger, and thumb. I topcoated then placed a straight tape from What's Up Nail Art Store near the tip of those nails, and painted white. Once that's dry, I placed 2 sets of thinner straight tape on the white part, and painted black in between. I added a white triangle stud on the black part and finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. For other nails, I simply added 2 triangle studs. I bought those studs from an online shop in Japan.

This is the second time I wore this Revlon Royal, and it didn't disappoint at all! Combined with this leafy white stamp, it has such a refreshing look. I decided to go with simple white & black colour combo, and I'm so happy with how it turned out.


少し前からRevlon Royalを塗りたくてうずうずしていました。Royalはここで初めて塗って以来2回目です。このポリッシュをメインディッシュにするため、色合わせはシンプルにしました。まず出来上がりはこちら。

3 coats of Revlon Royal on pointer and pinkie. Such a deep blue!

ベースは全爪Revlon Royal。 DRK XL Designer 2プレートから葉っぱのような柄をMundo de Uñas Whiteで中指、薬指、親指にスタンプ。いったんトップコートを塗り、What's Up Nail Art Store で買ったストレートテープをこの3本の指の爪先付近に置き、白を塗る。乾いたら少し細いストレートテープを2つ白い部分に置き、その間を黒で塗る。黒の部分に白の三角スタッズを置いて仕上げはGlisten & Glow HK Girlトップコート。他の爪は白の三角スタッズを2つ逆向きに配置。スタッズはこちらのお店から。 使用ポリッシュはこちら。

Polishes used


Revlon Royal
Sally Hansen White On
Face of Australia Scream
Mundo de Uñas White

I wish I could freehand those stripes, but nah, didn't want to take a chance and ruin it


I didn't want to cover up Royal too much, but this stamp was the best match out of all I tried


青と白とちょっと黒という色の組み合わせがなかなか爽やかで気に入りました。なんとなく雰囲気は「ギリシャ」です。ちなみにこの白の三角スタッズは初めて使いましたが、50個しか入ってないので右手には黒の三角スタッズを白ポリッシュで塗ったものを貼り付けていますw あんまり見えないとは思いますが、雑な仕上がりの右手にもご注目ください(爆。
