NOTD using MOYOU plate for Valentine's day (mini-mani-marathon)

Hello my lovelies! Today I bring you another Valentine's day inspired manicure. This time I got the occasion to use the gorgeous MOYOU London stamping plate "Festive" #19. The manicure is very simple to DO, but gosh did I have a hard time "CHOOSING"!!Take a look!




For this manicure I first did a gradient using two GORGEOUS Zoya polishes from last Fall's "Ignite" collection "India" and "Teigen". This was one of my favourite collections from last year and I regret I haven't used these colours very often. But I figured the two of them were oh so appropriate for a Valentine's day manicure. As I couldn't makeup my mind between the two I went for a gradient. And let me tell you it was a good idea because both these shades complement so well that the gradient went seamlessly!

I then applied a coat of Essence topcoat and let it dry well. Once dried, I had the hardest time choosing a desing from the MOYOU Festive plate #19, I wanted them all!! I finally made up my mind for the design on the lower left corner with the words "love you!". 




For stamping I used a GREAT drugstore polish from the Swiss brand called "Underline" in the shade "Oro". The whole Iced nails collection from Underline stamps GLORIOUSLY! If you have hard time finding good stamping nail polish I highly recommend these, you can get them online here for only CHF 4.90 each.



So what do you think of this manicure? would you wear it for Valentine's Day? If it seems too much, another option is leaving the gradient and stamping only a small detail on one nail as an accent.


If you like any of the Zoya polishes, remember Zoya Switzerland has strongly discounted the Fall and Winter collection from 2014, and you can also find a Valentine's Day selection of nail polish shades also discounted (CHF 15,50 instead of CHF 21). Also entering my exclusive code POLISHEDPOLYGLOT_FAN during the checkout for an extra 20% discount!
Love,
Nati

    1. You tell me Ananka! Zoya has entered the Swiss market only LAST year, and the price is 21€ per bottle!! however with promos and discounts you can get most of the shades for around 12€ which is more or less the price if you order it in the US+shipping.
