Haaaaaaappy Friday! This week has been exhausting. I have managed to get a lot done but I am so looking forward to sleeping in a bit. I hope it doesn’t mean I am getting sick but just in case, I am doubling up on my vitamins 😉 How has your week been?
I had this idea for a while and when I swatched Essence – Instant summer the other day I knew this would be the perfect shade for this idea. Let me show you what I did.
I started with 2 coats of Essence – Instant summer on all my nails. Once that was completely dry I stamped on my pinky, middle and index using BP-L020 and Mundo de Unas – Blue. On my ring finger I used stripping tape and normal tape to tape of the sections and then I used Mundo de Unas – Blue, making sure to remove the tape immediately after. I added a coat of seche vite so that it could dry completely. Once it was dry I used tape to cover the now blue section and then stamped the same image again on the yellow part. I then topcoated everything and that was that.
First, I used Mundo de Unas a polish over the striping tape. It wasn’t the best idea. It is an amazing stamping polish but it doesn’t react like regular polish when used as regular polish. It applied fine but there was definitely a difference. When I removed the last tape I could see the blue wanted to lift as well, even though there was a topcoat and a long drying time. Either way, I really like how it turned out. A lot. the blue and pale yellow is exactly what I had in mind and I really do love the stamping image I used as well. What do you think? Have you used Mundo de unas as a regular polish before? Have a fabulous weekend and I’ll see you on the other side.
