Hi everyone!
I'm super excited to be on the Harlow & Co. blog today! 
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Sam, the blogger behind FashionPolish.com.
I've been blogging for about 3 years and a half now and although I mostly run a swatch/review blog, I also try and post nail arts as soon as I get the chance... A bit like today actually ^_^
I don't think I could say when I first heard about Harlow and Co, it just feels like the store has always been around. But but one thing I know for sure is their excellent customer service and how passionate Katie is about nail polish, always interacting with everyone spreading nothing but color and a positive attitude all around the globe (ok that might be a few things lol).
So of course when Katie posted on Facebook that she was looking for guest posters, I instantly knew I had to participate!

Ok so here we go :

The nail art I created today is a mix of triangles and circles, stamping and dotting, all in a soft and yet fresh Spring themed color range.



To achieve this look, I used white stamping nail polish, the Moyou XL 02 plate from the Pro Collection, as well as 4 piCture pOlish colors : Twinkle, Watermelon, Peaches n'Cream and Mellow Yellow.

Here's a quick step by step :
  • Apply base coat over freshly hydrated and manicured nails
  • Stamp directly over the base coat. Pay extra attention to the cuticle area, the tips will be covered and don't need to be perfect ;-)
  • Start drawing large circles on your tips with the nail polish brush, using your first 2 colors. Make sure not to overlap polishes at this point. 
  • Once this first coat of color is dry to the touch, add a few more large circles with your third and even fourth color, slightly overlapping the previous ones this time. Again, give it a couple of minutes to dry.
  • Continue with medium and small dots of all 4 colors, using a dotting tool or whatever is handy, no need to wait in between.
  • Finish with topcoat and voila!
And now, a few more pictures...





Well, that's it for today, I hope you've all enjoyed this guest post.
Thank you so much for reading it and many thanks to Katie for having me on her blog!

  • What a brilliant idea, Sam. It looks great of course, but what a super way to use stamping designs that aren’t quite big enough to cover my nails. Thank you!

  • These are so beautiful! I love the mix of patterns – I would have thought it wouldn’t work, but you have such a great eye, Sam, because they look great together!
