Beauty Big Bang XL-042 and Some Extraordinary Nail Art

Today I have the Beauty Big Bang XL-042 stamping plate to show you and for my first look I used a base of Wikkid Polish Lavender although I completely forgot until now that this beauty is a thermal and my hands are so cold that it was just all, constantly purple. I then stamped a few images on my nails using the Beauty Big Bang Gold stamping polish and topped with Seche Vite.

The plate has 7 full nail images that have a curved end and a square end, which I found to be super helpful, you get such a neat stamp around the cuticle end which save you having to flood your cuticles with a super stainy polish. There are also 38 smaller images of flowers, butterflies and birds. There is a good combination of regular stamp and reverse stamping and with the full nail images and smaller images, you could also get a good bit of layering going on.

The plate is etched perfectly and you get good stamp pick up each time.

So for my second nail art look using this plate, it’s one that I kind of, on a whim, wanted to do some nail art for it and the full nail image with diagonal lines kind of triggered the idea for me.

So here is my Umbrella Academy nail art. Have you watched it yet? My nail art is based on the Netflix promo images and I turned the lined stamp around so they were going straight down the nails to match, then the rest is freehand. The number 4 is because Number 4 is my favourite. Then on my middle finger I have the umbrella for, you guessed it, The Umbrella Academy. On my ring finger and pinkie I have the masks that Hazel and Cha-Cha wear in the comics, although Cha-Cha’s mask is pretty much the same, I prefer this version of Hazel’s.

But the nail I am most proud of is my thumb, where I freehanded The Umbrella Academy crest and although I did it slightly too big and I kind of wish I hadn’t put stripes on this nail, I am really proud of how it turned out. All done using only Barry M Black Forest and Barry m Cotton, then I topped it all off with a coat of Barry M Matte topcoat.
I really, really enjoyed the whole season of this and I hope they come back relatively quickly with a season 2. I had no idea that these comics existed and I am now going to try and get some of them because of how much I loved this series. Also, how is Robert Sheehan amazing in everything?
