Happy April! (yes I know it’s the 2nd already) It is a super busy week here as we get ready for the #DBNBloggerMeet and today we are packing the goodie bags. It is going to be epic, even though it is crazy busy this week. Totally worth it!
Stamping decals aren’t a new thing but Thea from Madness Nails recently did this tutorial that was really easy to follow and made it look totally do-able. I knew I had to give a try. I decided to do a blue gradient and then do a gradient decal as well. Here is what I did.
- I started with 2 coats of Essence – Absolutely Blue on my pinky, 2 coats of Essence – Let’s get lost and 2 coats of Essence – The boy next door (old version) on my middle. I then started with 2 coats of Essence – Icy Princess (old version) on my index.
- Once that was completely dry I follow Thea’s tutorial and made the decal using all the same colours in a diagonal gradient using BM422.
- Once that was all done I top coated everything and good to go.
It is obviously not perfect but I am super proud of my first try. The blue shapes almost looked 3D on top of the silver and I couldn’t stop looking at it. I would’ve done one or two things differently though. I would’ve organised the gradient better so that it looked correct once it went onto my nail. It now looks odd or in the wrong sequence. I promise it was right when I started on one end 😉 Or I would’ve done the gradient from tip to cuticle. But I love it anyway.
What do you think? Have you made your own stamping decals?
