Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art Nails - MoYou London Pro Collection #10

I was a bit disappointed about the size of my MoYou London plates from the Pro Collection #10 because they are really small for my thumb nails (my fault though, I didn't read the description!). So I thought the best way to use these images would be a skittle manicure, so that I could design every nail in a different way. Roy Lichtenstein / Pop Art is a great way of doing skittle nails, since everything is colorful anyway. I prepared some nail polish decals using three of the stamping images and then colored them with acrylic paint. On my thumb and pinky nails I made a simple polka dot design with Flormar - 400 and Essie - Really Red. I'm not too happy with both of the speech bubbles because my black polish (H&M - Manhunter) really isn't the best choice for stamping. I guess I'm once again on the hunt for a new opaque black! On top is one coat of Essence - BTGN High Gloss.

  1. These nails look great. Have you tired Cult Nails Nevermore or A England's black polish? They both work great for stamping.

  3. Fantastisch! Wow! Ich kann gar nix dazu sagen, außer, dass das selbst schon Kunst ist. Roy hätte das sicher gefallen, dass seine Werke auf Fingernägeln getragen werden.
    Deine Decal Methode kann ich mir kaum vorstellen, dass das bei mir auch klappt. Fällt das nicht wieder ab?
    Ein gutes Schwarz ist p2 Eternal aus DE.

    1. Vielen Dank für die lieben Worte! :) Nein die decals werden mit Lack befestigt und "verschmelzen" dann mit allen Schichten zusammen und bleiben so fest wie normaler Nagellack!
      Eternal hatte ich schonmal, das stimmt! Mal schauen wann ich wiedermal in DE bin :)

  5. I love your stamping ideas. I actually generally love your manicures, so that comes as no surprise :)
    My favorite black is from "Oh so wet" which I got from Ninja Polish. All their polishes stamp amazingly well.

  6. Beautiful nails! My favorite black polish - both for using as is and for stamping - is Essie Licorice. It's the best black I've tried :)

  10. I love this! I want to try these images for stamping decals too, but I haven't done any stamping decals yet... they seem difficult! This weekend I'm going to try it though :)

    1. Thank you! I'm sure you can do it! Just take your time with painting them and letting them dry and you will be fine :)

  11. They look amazing! Have just bought my first MoYou London stamping plates, too. They have some great designs! But I need more practice... I was struggling to get the designs transferred.
