Lush Shoot for the Stars bath bomb inspired nail art

Hey guys! Here is more on my Lush Shoot for the Stars Mani as promised! My mom has been visiting this week and I thought I'd still maintain my blog schedule but I wound up just taking the time off the hang with her! I've also (unrelated) lost my voice! I'd love any suggestions on how to cure laryngitis....vocal rest is not an option!!

The base color is my beloved OPI Ogre the Top Blue, which I vowed to steal from a friend until I found my own. Actually, I think I ordered it from Amazon! It's fairly hard to find now. The gold stamping is (obviously) OPI 50 Years of Style and a light coating of China Glaze Fairy Dust, of course!

I swear it matches more in real life than in this pic! If you missed my review of the amazing Shoot for the Stars bath bomb you can see it HERE

This is my typical process, I practice stamping *alot* before on my nails. I wasn't sure how well the gold would show up over the dark blue. 

For the individual stars I used the Pueen Double Fun 01 plate, which just came out recently! I also wound up taking my Pueen clear stamper head out of the holder. It hasn't been wanting to stay in there lately so I just took it out.  I did order this shorter stamper which seems to be holding in the head in a little better but not 100%.

This is the MoYou plate I used for the shooting star nail. The Moyou plates are so different from the Pueen...the designs are much greater in detail and  definitely still getting the hang of it! 

Here's another look at the whole Double Fun plate. It's meant for layering images with different colors. This plate has so much potential!!

I just love the way this looked in the sun but because it was so sparkly you kind of lose the design! Dang you, sparkles!
