Summer Designs with MoYou Nails!

***Press Sample***

I don't now if YOU know this, but Father's Day this year was also the first official day of summer!  So I created two nail designs to celebrate the new season using MoYou Nails stamping plates, polish, and rhinestones ^_^

The first design is based off one of my top favorite images that come to mind when I hear the word "summer" - sailing!




I did a gradient using "Lei It Again" and "Rum Me The Right Way" by KBShimmer, and painted a wave pattern using "In Yacht Water," also by KBShimmer.  To get the subtle waves look, I used a holo topcoat and OPI's Nail Envy in a watermarble pattern.  I then used my MoYou Nails Black nail polish to stamp the boat silhouettes, and a dark blue stamping polish from somewhere (I honestly don't recall, it's in an unmarked tiny bottle) for the dolphin silhouettes, all from MoYou Nails Plate 70.  I painted a light grey inside the dolphin lines because they just looked odd as outlines :P  I topped it all with my OPI Matte topcoat, and I'm pretty pleased with the end look ^_^

My second design is a bit more fun :)  One of my favorite activities I remember doing as a kid in the summer was making tie-dye t-shirts and whatnot.  So I thought I'd re-create a nail design to sort of emulate that look:








I used the entire Live Love Neon collection by Seventy-Seven Nail Lacquer for the watermarble designs.  I then stamped over using my MoYou White nail polish and a beautiful butterfly design from Plate 212.  Over the sun part of the butterfly image I placed a diamond rhinestone for an added sparkle :)  I totally love how this design turned out!!!

I'm always pleased with MoYou Nails plates and polishes - they all stamp so smoothly!  I've noticed that they pick up with different types of stamper heads, too, which is always nice.  Some of my polishes will only pick up with a super sticky and squishy stamper, others will only transfer on a more solid type of stamper.  All the MoYou Nails polishes pick up with both types so far.  I used my MoYou Nails stamper, which is not too sticky and is stiffer, for all these image transfers in the above designs.

What do you think of these designs?  What are some of the first things that come to your mind when you think of Summer? :)

MoYou Nails supplied their stamping plates, polishes, and rhinestones for this review.  Opinions and experiences with the product are my own and are 100% honest.  Results may vary for everyone.
