Before & After: UberChic Beauty 11-02 over Lorelei Lacquer Sticky Popsicle Fingers

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


I said I'd be back with sample manis from each of the UberChic Beauty collection 11 plates, and today's the first! Although I'm starting with plate 11-02, so not strictly in order, lol.


Here's the video I made for collection 11, in case you missed it:



For my base polish I used Lorelei Lacquer's Sticky Popsicle Fingers (now defunct, sadly):

Then I used the infinite image from the bottom right corner of 11-02:

In my videos I talk a lot about how you can use an image like this one in several ways; for example, you can pick just the spiky flower in the middle and put that on all your fingers for one sort of mani, or use one of the lacier flowers for a completely different mani. Or, you can use different parts of the image on different fingers to get a different look on each nail, but still maintain a cohesive style.


To demonstrate what I mean, I chose to center the spikey flower on my accent nail, so you can see how that would look all on its own, but then surround it will the leafy parts of the image so you can see how well the different parts of the image can work together, even when each nail is different.


I stamped with Messy Mansion Hydrangea Blue (also available on Amazon); here's how it came out:

Can I just say how much I love that clear stampers allow you to do things like perfectly center a flower around a glitter in your polish? SO COOL. And I love how the spiky flower centers the manicure while the other flower and the leafy part frame it. Soft, sweet, feminine. :)


Happy stamping!
