Happy Friday! It’s been a really busy week and it doesn’t look like things will slow down any time soon. It’s kinda fun to have a full calendar but when time is already precious it can get a little hectic. But it is weekend and even though we will be busy we will also be having tons of fun.
It’s time for the second prompt for the #PPSANailChallenge and that is red
Well now, seems simple right? As usual I had so many ideas and agonised for ages about what to do. I eventually settled on something I have been wanting to try for a while now. Let me show you
I started with a gradient of various reds. I used Essence – Fame fatal, Essence – Do you speak love and Essence – Red ahead. I then topcoated and let that dry completely. Once it was I dry I stamped using Pueen65 and Essence Satin matte topcoat. I really wanted to do a matte and shiny stamping design and even though it worked really well, I am not sure if it is obvious that it is a matte-ish stamp? This was actually my second attempt. I used different reds the first time around but the more I wore it the more the lightest red looked orange to me. I know it is red but I think next to a darker, deeper red it showed up more of the orange tones. So after taking photos, editing and half way through writing that post I just couldn’t. I knew I had to redo it. I definitely prefer these reds so much more.
What do you think? Have you done any of the prompts yet? Are you planning on joining us? I would love to see what you come up with. You can also check out all the other ladies using the InLinkz thing below.
