St. Basil’s Cathedral…

Well I’m putting Messy Mansion Monday’s on hold since Moyou London are having a stamping challenge for the month of May. For more details check their page on Instgram.

Today the theme is “Red”, which inspires me to use plate 13 from the Tourist Collection. This plate has a full image of St. Basil’s Cathedral in the Red Square, Moscow. I remember going here with my parents when I was a kid, I thought then and still do now what an amazing looking church!!

I have made stamped decals and for the first time have managed to apply them well. I think that the trick might be to paint your nail in clear polish,( I’ve been using Cutex “2 in 1 base coat), then to gently press each decal into the wet polish. To get the decal to sit flat I gently pressed on it with the stamper. No bubbles! Then I added a coat of China Glaze “Fast Forward” to seal it all.

These came out just as I imagined they would, love it when that happens. Here is St. Basil’s in all its glory!

    gorgeous manicure😀

  3. These are amazing, I still haven’t gotten up the nerve to try out decals, haha.

    • Thank you Alexandria, just give it a try, if you mess up, just start again. Its probably easier than stamping because you choose the exact placement. Whereas my stamping can be a bit hit and miss. Also you can pre-make decals, when you have a little spare time, for use later when you have more time!🙂
