Red and White Nail art with MoYou Mother Nature 02

Hi Everyone :)

I have so many MoYou London plates now and they are all so I apologise for the constant spamming of stamping manicures! I absolutely love birds, so I wanted to use the Mother Nature 02 plate again, and try out more parts of the plate than my last mani using it (here).

6 months ago when I was in France my beloved Weiro Larry flew away from my Grandparents who were looking after him. I've been avoiding bird manicures for a long time until very recently because they made me so sad. Here is a picture of him :) He used to put his head down like that because he was addicted to head scratches! I could completely cover him with my hands and he wouldn't ever squirm! He was very smart too- he could say his name, What cha doing Larry?, Hello Larry and sing lots of songs like the Kill Bill Whistle and before I left I was teaching him to bop up and down when I said "Dance Larry".

Anyway, I'm making myself sad but I wanted to share something about him with you all =(

 For this manicure I used OPI Big red apple, OPI Alpine snow and the Konad Stamping polishes in red, and white.

Thanks for stopping by:)


  1. Awe, I'm sorry to hear about your bird-a similar situation happened to a friend and I know how wonderful they are. Your manicure is beautiful! (yet again) Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one who can help but stamp everything because the MoYou plates are so hard to resist using.

    1. Thanks for your kind words :) Some people don't realise how close you can be with a bird.

      Just for you I am going to count my MoYou Stash.... here we go... 14 plates! haha. I need to get cracking. I think I've only used half of them!

  2. I love the stamping. It very detail and nicely done (: And I am sorry about your bird!

  3. So sorry about your birdie - I've had a few budgies and while they don't live long, it breaks my heart when they pass away!
    This mani is stunning!! I really want to try a Konad kit they come with many stamping polishes?

    1. Hi Sara, thankyou :)
      I think you can get Konad kits, but I have just purchased all of my things separately. I think from the konad brand the most important thing to buy is the double sided stamper. I also find their stamping polishes in black and white are the best ones to use. For the actual designs there is an endless number of plates from many companies you can choose from! I really like the variety availiable at MoYou, but they are a little pricey, so if you want to try something cheaper to begin with I'd recommend the XL Cheeky plates. I have a big post with all the different plates, links to the stores and other stamping stuff here:

  4. Sorry about Larry :( These look gorgeous, though! I love the combination of the vivid red and white and the images are so cute!


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one from both new and old posts, and will do my best to respond to any questions you may have in a timely fashion :)
