HPB Presents- 1st Indie Brand Owned

Hello my lovely readers! I hope everyone has had a great week, I had some amazing nail mail today from the lovely Becca who writes A Certain Becca Nails. We have been organising a swap between ourselves for months and today was the day we finally got our packages. I will probably try and get a post up next week showing all you lovely people the amazing nail goodies I received. However today's post is another HPB link-up this months theme is 1st Indie Brand, for this link-up all of us blogger's have to create a manicure using the first Indie Brand we ever owned. this can be the exact polish we purchased or just our favourite polish from that Indie maker. We can do either a simple mani or create nail art using the polish from that 1st Indie brand we owned. So let me show you the manicure I decided to create for this theme.

The first ever Indie polish that I owed was this beautiful True Brit London called Taxi Cab, this is a black creme polish opaque in 2 coats. It has a really great formula, it builds up incredibly well and there are no brush strokes visible after the second coat. This really is a great black creme it works well as a black base and for nail art. I received this polish in last years September Nailbox, it was the first ever Indie brand to come into my collection. You can buy True Brit London Taxi Cab from their website for £12.50.

On top of Taxi Cab I wanted to try out one of my new Born Pretty stamping polishes, because we are coming into spring I decided to use this flower image from Fab Ur Nails plate Fun 13. This plate has some really lovely images on it, I will hopefully be buying some more Fab Ur Nails plates in the near future. For the stamping I chose to go with the pastel pink as when I swatched this over black it looked really delicate and pretty. 

I used my Rainbow Connection clear jelly stamper for the stamping and a dotting tool to add the yellow dots in the middle of the flowers. I really do like how this turned out, I think it made the black polish look less harsh and I am loving that pink stamped over black.

I hope you have enjoyed this quick post, I will leave a link to the link up below so you can see everyone's beautiful mani's. For those of you who don't know Hobby Polish Bloggers is a Facebook page for all nail bloggers to interact with each other to get advice and general tips and tricks about running a nail polish blog. This group is full of wonderful people who have helped me with my blog and are always there to lend a helping hand. This months link-up will be open from today until the 29th of February so make sure to keep checking back as I am sure plenty more manicures will be added from now until then. As always I hope you are all have a fabulous nail day and chat to you all again really soon.
