A Day at the Circus: ft. MoYou London Circus

Hello Readers!


Today's mani was brought about by an itch in the back of my mind to get back to the Circus collection and play around with a very fun plate.


I wanted to keep my colors softer, so I decided to use Sinful Colors "Unicorn", which is a very pale yellow, as a background instead of white, but when I finished it I really wished I had used white instead!

I also had fun playing with the new Kandee Johnson/Sinful Colors collab polish in this mani- I used the textured polish "Pink Sugar" and striping tape to do a kind of 3-D look that I've seen a lot of people doing recently.


I also decided to stamp in "Italian Leather" instead of my usual black to try to keep things soft.


My images came from this plate, and I reverse-stamped them. That ballerina image was tricky to fill in, because they are so tiny, and because the stamping polish was gray so it was a lot lighter than what I am used to!

  1. I actually really like the light yellow here! I also love the lighter black stamping... Gives kind of a vintage feel :) the striping tape with the textured polish is a nice touch too!

    1. Thank you! Those images were awfully tiny to try to color in, so I'm a little surprised I didn't go outside the lines more.
