Last summer mani of the year?

Hi guys! It's been almost a month since my last post, what can I say, real life got in the way :) But that did give me plenty time to get lots of inspiration again, and the current season (and matching weather...) gives even more ideas; time for the fall colors! ♥ But before I get to that, I still have some products that I didn't review yet. In one of my last posts I already showed you a BornPrettyStore stamping polish that I liked a lot, but I had another one (different brand, but also from BPS) and a little jar of studs in my review drawer. Time to test those!

The studs that I received come as a mix of round, neon studs and square studs with prints on it. There are plenty studs in the jar, and I like how you get a nice mix, instead of a lot of a single type. I do enjoy studs occasionally, and a mixed jar like this is perfect for those times! I also haven't seen square studs with a print like these before, they'll be great as an easy way to spice up a simple creme polish, or for accentnails with a matching mani.
You can find the jar here, it costs $2.43 - but as always, code AJB61 will give you 10% off on your order :)

Another item that I received is a black stamping polish from a brand called Temix. I've been curious about black stamping polishes from various brands (because my go-to black is running empty and I haven't found a nice replacement yet), so when I had the opportunity to review this one, it was an easy choice... and I can keep it short here: I love this one! :D The polish isn't too thick, yet covers perfect. Sometimes blacks can be a little sheer for some images, or lean more grey, but this is a great black! I've used it for this mani to test it with finer lines, and also tried it with an image with bigger open areas. Just a small stripe of polish, a quick swipe, and the whole image was covered without little gaps! And if that wasn't enough to win me over, it did not stain my cuticles, wooo! Another great stamping polish from BPS, I'm curious about the other colors of this brand too :)
The Temix stamping polish is available in 12 colors and comes in a 6ml bottle, which costs $2.99.

I bought an Ikea Alex and replaced my 2 desk legs with it, so I could finally organize the mess of tools that was on and below my desk, and taking up space in one of the Helmers. And I so love it, wish I would've gotten that ages ago! I took an unused tray for cutlery and I'm now using it to organize the cleanup tools, stamping tools, nail files, etc. And one of my foster kittens, Toby, was checking it all out! Isn't he adorable? ♥ He and his sister Belle will stay with me for another month or so, then they'll move together to their new home :)
