Rose and her Coconuts

Hey lovelies

Today I am finally showing you how I 'jazzed' up by simple yet beautiful base of Barry M Coconut (as seen in my previous post here). I really like trying out different polishes for nail stamping so I amazed I havent reached for my all time fave Indie polishes, a-England, before now. Here are the results...

If I am being honest I try to steer clear of red polish. I dont like the colour with my skin tone and just dont like how 'classic red' nails can look a little cheap. That being said I did of course buy this stunning red as soon as it was released just because it is a-England and I knew it would be fab!

Using an interlocking circle design from  the Pueen plates I stamped each nail with the same image. Kind of reminds me of the gear cogs on a push bike ?!

I am so pleased with how well this polished stamped - the holo glitters did not effect it at all and the image transferred crisply to each nail. This is the best way to wear red for me...

Thanks for stopping by

  1. I was totally feeling the same about reds until I forced myself to wear them... I would say I was actually scared of wearing red! I think this looks beautiful and how gorgeous is that A-England polish? I love the holo! xx

    1. I am totally scared of wearing red. Honestly I still feel that way. I could wear this one just about as its got a very raspberry pink tone to it but a pillarbox red could make me faint :) xx
