KKCenterHk review: Ruby Wing Sweet Fantasy Collection - In Your Dreams

This beautiful nail polish was kindly offered to me from KKCenterHk for this review. You can find it on their web site with this name: Ruby Wing Sweet Fantasy Collection In Your Dreams, item ID: RUBYWING-RW191068.

All nail polishes in the Sweet Fantasy Collection are colour changing nail polishes with Solar Active technology. Solar active colour changes from one colour to another when exposed to the UV rays of the sun. 
There are 6 different colours in Sweet Fantasy Collection, they are all beautiful, but I chose In Your Dreams because the shade that it has in sunlight is one of my favourite shades :-) Inside it is a very pale pastel shade of grey with blue undertones and outside in the sun it transforms into a dusty blue-grey.

The nail polish comes in a 15 ml bottle. The formula is a bit thicker, but I didn't have any problem during the application. 

On my photos you can see two layers, they were enough for a complete opacity :-) I also applied one layer of NYC n° 138 Classy Glassy top coat.

Born Pretty Store review: Stamping plate QA59

I got this beautiful stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. You can find it on their website with this name: Nail Art Stamp Template Elegant Lace Rose Bowknot Pattern QA59, item ID: 6460.



I like to see manicures made using stamping plates, I really admire some of them because they look like real pieces of art, but I have to admit that I do stamping manicures very rarely... 
Lately I got two Born Pretty Stamping plates. The first one is the stamping plate QA27 that I reviewed some days ago in my post Born Pretty Store review: Stamping plate QA27, and I chose it because it has beautiful floral and dot patterns that I really love. The other one is this one, the stamping plate QA59, and I chose it because of floral patterns of course and because of two wonderful paisley patterns that look incredible; also, the other small patterns are very cute, like the little rose, I'm sure that it will embellish one of my manicures soon :-) 

All Born Pretty Store stamping plates are protected by a thin protective film, you should remove the film before use, so that the nail polish can be transferred by the stamper :-)

When it comes to stamping manicures I'm just a beginner, so if you are a beginner like me maybe these instructions will be useful to you; if you are already a "pro" in stamping, you can just skip this part and scroll down to my manicure :-)

Instructions:
1. apply base coat or regular nail polish on your nail, let it dry completely
2. apply nail polish to desired image on your stamping plate; you could use special stamping nail polishes, or find out which nail polishes from your collection work good for stamping
3. with a scraper leaned over 45 degrees scrape off excessive nail polish quickly from inside to outside border of your stamping plate
4. press the stamper with a gentle rolling motion to "pick up" the design, so that the image is transferred on the stamp
5. stamp the image on your nail with a gentle rolling motion, so that the image is transferred on your nail
6. apply top coat to "seal" your manicure

As you might know I love free hand nail art and I enjoy it a lot, but if you are not so good in free hand drawing or when you don't have so much free time for a complicated free hand drawing manicure, stamping plates could be a very good solution for you! :-) Of course, it needs a little bit of practice (just like every other nail art technique) but it offers many different possibilities and interesting designs! :-)

Here is my skittlette stamping manicure, I hope you like it! :-)
