Hello, I’m Marta and some of you might know me from ChitChat Nails :D. When Jeanette asked me to guest post on her blog I literally had to pinch myself!!!

I have had the distinct pleasure to chat with Jeanette on Twitter and to admire her blog from across the ocean, Canada. I enjoy reading her blog write-ups and would include her in the group of select few bloggers who provide real quality swatches that are really true to colour (and I have come to expect nothing less from her). When I think if Jeanette in terms of polish, I think: duochrome, holographic, and layering. At first I thought I would try my hand at a nice duo chrome, maybe a holo, or some fun layering in the spirit of her blog… but I knew that I would fall short! So instead, I’d like to show you something that I’m more comfortable with… and that is stamping :) I am a true stamping fanatic and like subtle colours as well as wild ones, but most of all I’m a real sucker for animal print… so that is what I have for you today.

I took my inspiration from the WAH nail designs and added my own ChitChat Nails flavour ;). This is my first guest post ever (I’m so thankful for this opportunity) and I literally had sweaty palms throughout this whole process. I hope you enjoy, and I hope that I did Jeanette proud 😉

Base Coat: 1 coat of Sally Hansen Whirlwind White
Second Layer 1 coat Revlon Coconut Crush (a scented pearly white) and 1 coat Sally Hansen The Real Teal
Stamping: Konad plate m57 and Wet n’ Wild Ebony Hates Chris
(all the above brands are most accessible to me in London Ontario Canada… so I thought I’d use some local flavour in this mani)
Top Coat: Seche Vite

I can’t say it enough how exciting and nerve wrecking this experience was for me :) Nail polish has been a huge passion of mine, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I started a blog and got into stamping. Now I have real polish-fever!!! With stamping the possibilities are endless and I think that is part of what entices me. I have recently really enjoyed double-stamping as well as partial stamping (as was seen in today’s post)!

Do you gravitate towards certain stamping plates over others? Do you have a favourite stamp or stamping combination? I’d love to hear about it.

Hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading!

Aww hun I love your stamping! :) Animal prints are a fab classic and thank you so much for sharing. Mwah! ♥

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥

  1. I love this! I love the color teal and I love anything with animal prints. I love looking at nail polish swatches, even though I am a total amateur at doing my nails and usually just paint them one regular color.
