Uber Chic Succulent Stamping on Bow- Composure [Nail Art] [Swatch]

Hey guys! Where did the weekend go?

Today I have some fun nail stamping using the very popular Uber Chic Succulents stamping plate!

This post also features my first ever Bow Polish, Bow- Composure, which is a lovely magenta-ish thermal shade with chunky fleck-like golden bronze shimmers!

I've been admiring some Bow Polish for a while (especially the magnetics), but I believe it's only available in the US through color4nails.com, which is where I purchased this shade. Incidentally, when this post is up, color4nails will have just received the Bow magnetics line- so do check those out if you're interested. (Bow is part of Dance Legend, if I recall correctly.)

This polish applied really nicely- lovely formula and opaque in two coats! One thing that I didn't know about the packaging is that the square lid does not lift off to reveal something round/ smaller you can grasp like on a lot of polish with square lids. No one ever said anything about this- or I just never came across that tidbit! Anyway, the square lid/ handle was super awkward for me to hold, and I guess I'm just lucky that the actual polish formula was easy to manipulate.

Manicure & supplies:

For these nails I used the Uber Chic Succulents plate, the Uber Chic scraper (which is the best plastic card scraper I've used so far!), as well as the original Uber Chic Clear Stamper.

I used KBShimmer- Eyes White Open as my stamping polish. That white is so opaque it stamps as well as any other stamping white I've tried! It dries a bit quickly though, so you just have to be fast.


^That's Composure mid-transition. The warm state is sort of a neutral, flattering beige. Very pretty!

How cute are the designs on this plate?! I know everyone is so into succulents right now, it's a thing. But, I will have you know, I've liked succulents for a long time, thank you very much!


Index & middle nails:

Isn't this the cutest stamp ever?!

I mean, really! It's pretty much my favorite design on the succulents plate!

What do you think?
Have you seen this plate or tried it?
Have you tried any Bow Polish?
