Clearly my blog doesn’t agree with daylight savings and decided to take yesterday off leaving a post hidden away, so you get two nail polish posts today! Since it is Pi Day, it has to be Pi themed nails and a cute Born Pretty text plate I bought before Christmas happens to have Pi symbols so I thought an easy stamping look would be perfect.
Pi Day Nail Art Polishes & Tools
- Zoya Daul polish
- Mo You London White Knight stamping polish
- Born Pretty text plate BP-76
- Messy Mansion stamper (any clear or dark stamp head so you can see the white polish)
- Essence The Gel top coat
Okay, the Zoya Daul was pure laziness on my part, Pi Day doesn’t really have a colour theme and I wore Daul yesterday to match a cute purple sweater so I just left it on. Any combination of colours would work for this Pi Day nail art look, just make sure that the stamping polish is light or dark enough to show over it.
If you are painting your nails, make sure they are dry completely so you don’t smudge them when rolling the stamp. Add a little stamping polish to the plate, I prefer to scrape left or right since my Messy Mansion stamper is a rectangle and I pick up the stamp polish length-ways so then I don’t need to clean polish from other stamps on the plate before applying and risk it drying too quickly. This Born Pretty stamping plate is well made, the Pi symbols were etched deep enough that it picked up polish easily.
Clean up any stamping polish from the edges of your nail and skin, add top coat and you are done. Excuse the fact I need a manicure badly and my cuticles are a mess, I have an upcoming post on how to start taking care of your nails and cuticles and have been letting mine go for a tutorial and comparison.
