Hey guys, Happy Tuesday, today I have a fun (but studious) stamping manicure featuring a couple of MoYou London Scholar Collection stamping plates to share with you! As some of you might know, I graduated in May so this September I am not going back to school (yay!). However, I couldn't help but still attempt a "Back to School" nail art design as lots of them are floating around the internet lately. To see some more pictures of the manicure and the plates I used, click......

MoYou London has, amongst its gazillion other amazing collections, a Scholar Collection that features various school subject themed stamping designs. For my Back to School design, I used plates 01 and 03.

The 01 plate has all your math symbols and equations. The few full nail designs on there were a bit small for my nails but the other single image designs worked really well.
Plate 03 features all things chemistry. I used the fun nucleus/electron single image design and it came out nicely.

I used Essence's "The Green & The Grunge" as the base color for all my nails except for the ring finger. For the ring finger I used one coat of Julep's "Daisy" over OPI's "I can't Cope-acabana". The white is "T-Shirt" from American Apparel and the black is "Hassid" from American Apparel. I then gave everything a nice generous layer of "Matte About You" matte top coat from Essie to mimic a chalkboard finish.

Here is a close-up, I kind of messed up on the ruler accent nail and the lines ended up a little distorted, oops!
