Guest Post: Amanda from Mae's Beauty

Hey guys, Amanda here while Amy is traveling all over the US moving and then on her big two-week trip away from us! I am so happy to be here with you guys and honored to be on this amazeballs blog of hers :)

The theme she asked me to do was travel nails. I have some unique well hopefully you think they are too.. nails for you today.

I went for a Pirate theme, hey thats travel too right, I got this new amazing Hello Kitty stamping plate that has over about 20 different Hello Kitty's and one of them she is a pirate! That's right! So these are my Hello Kitty traveling via Pirate ship nails


For this look I used two coats of 'Ulta-Snow White' on my pinky and my stamping plate 'Cheeky CH49' to stamp the wheels using 'Nubar - Lustful red'. My Hello Kitty pirate was plate 'MJ - Hello Kitty' and I stamped her using 'Zoya -Suri' overtop two coats of 'Zoya Barbie'. My pirate ship nail, I started with two coats of 'Contrary polish - Aruba' and topped it with my pirate ship stamp 'Cheeky CH49' and 'Essie - No place like chrome'. Lastly my skull and crossbones nail I used 'China Glaze - Liquid leather for the stamp using same Cheeky stamp 'CH49' overtop two coats of 'China Glaze - Sea Spray'





Alright guys, well that is all I have for you today, I hope that you enjoyed this mani. I hope I did Amy proud and she has me back again some time! :)


I love these nautical themed nails! Amanda doesn't even know this, but they fit me perfectly! I grew up traveling the USA with my Dad while he competed in Sailing Regattas. He was even the alternate for the '92 Olympics, not bad for being from KS huh? A good portion of my childhood was pretending to be pirates on the boats! This stamping job is super adorable and I love the different color schemes. Be sure to pop by Mae's Beauty and say Hi!
