Espresso Yourself!

Hi everyone!  I did my friend Amanda's nails using a coffee theme!  





Hahah, I know this is weird but I SWEAR it works so well!  Cleanup took half the time and was less messy.  





I created a gradient using:
China Glaze "Fast Track"
Kleancolor "Cappuchino"
Revlon "Espresso"
and put a coat of Essie "As Gold As It Gets" on top of that.  (I have been LOVING those gold flakes lately!!!)
I used image plate HB24 and FUN2 for the coffee images with Konad Special White polish


Thanks for stopping by!  Stay tuned for a review of the new MASH plates!

  2. thanks! I got it here: http://www.bf-beauty.com/en/category/165_172/index_home.html?javaID=c72eb9e5543731eec92eaa45a50c229c they don't have very many HB plates, there are about 22 more that I want (lol) but the only sites I can find the others are in Europe and shipping is about 20+ bucks so the order ends up being over 100 dollars. Not ready to cough up that much money yet for image plates, lol.

  5. Just checked out that site, they have a bunch now! Are they good stamping quality? They are awfully inexpensive! So many cool ones!

    1. They are decent quality. Most of them work, but some I do have a hard time picking up the image. I think for the cost, they are definitely worth having!!!
