sailor moon nails

Hey everyone!
I just can't even describe how excited I am for writing this post. I grew up watching Sailor Moon and I was insanely happy when I found out they were releasing a reboot. So, to honor one of my all time favorite shows I decided to create a Sailor Moon inspired manicure.

In order to create this manicure I made a gradient using a sponge and an electric blue, lavender and teal nail polish. Afterwards, I created a nail decal using stamping plate BP-49 which has tons of different Sailor Moon related images. I applied the decal on my middle finger and on the rest of the fingers I added constellation decals, also from BornPrettyStore.

Used products:
• Essence Electriiiiic!
• Kleancolor Signature Lavender
• Divine Lux 229

Since some of the products were sent to me for review, I'm going to write a few words about them.

First off, I will begin with the stamper that I used to create the decal. It's a rectangular stamper that comes with a metal scraper. It's very soft and squishy meaning you will get all of the needed details from the images. It comes very shiny, so you need to remove some of that shine. I did that by rubbing an eraser on the surface. It's perfect for creating decals. The size will fit most stamping plates, but if you have XL stamping images you might want to consider getting an XL stamper. I did have some trouble in the beginning because my images were warping around it and didn't turn out as they were supposed to, but with some practice it does the job pretty well.
The scraper is pretty good, but personally I prefer using old credit cards as opposed to scrapers like this one, mainly because metal scrapers tend to scratch the surface of the stamping plates and credit cards can scrape a larger surface.

This is what the decal looked like before I removed it from the stamper.

The second item that was sent to me were the constellation decals. I will begin by saying that the sheet of decals is packed with tons of different images, but they follow a similar theme which is zodiac and constellations. All of them are white and they show up really well both on light and dark colors. They are very detailed and even the tiniest are very easy to apply. My only problem was the fact that they are really packed next to each other and you need to be really careful when cutting.

They are very detailed and the base color won't show through.

And, of course, a close up of one of the nails.

Some of the products were sent to me for review. However, my opinion will always be 100% honest.
