Nail Art: ipsy themed Houndstooth Nails



Hi guys! Today I have some double stamped nails that were inspired by the ipsy August 2015 bag. To do these I used: Zoya WillaZoya Purity, Fresh Perspective from M Polish, stamping plate GA1 from Gals, stamping plate BP73 from, 2mm neon studs from, striped vinyls from Vino Vinyls, Creative Shop stamper/scraper, and Clearly On Top topcoat from KB Shimmer.

To start I laid down 1 coat of Zoya’s Purity on all my nails.

Next I stamped over Purity using Zoya’s Willa and stamping plate GA1 by Gals.

After that had dried a bit, I went in a double stamped some roses on top using Fresh Perspective from M Polish and stamping plate BP73 from I topcoated after this step with KB Shimmer’s Clearly On Top and let dry for a good 10 minutes.


Next I used thick stripe decals on the center of both my ring and middle fingers, then painting the interior part with Zoya’s Willa. I immediately removed the vinyl then let dry just a bit before topcoating once more.


Before the topcoat has a chance to dry I went in and added a line of the neon studs from bornprettystore along the black line. At this point I topcoated again and had no lost studs over the next 2 days before I removed to paint again.
