I hope you’re having a fabulous week so far. It feels like a million things have happened so far already and it’s only Wednesday. I don’t know what these millions of things are though ;). It just feels like it has been busy in the world. Ok so now that I am not making any sense anymore…..I hope the rest of your week is fabulous!
One of my favourite features about Instagram is the option to save posts. I have soooooo many posts saved for inspiration and it just so happens to be where I got the inspiration for this post. It was one of those days where I just didn’t know what to do with my nails and I didn’t even have a polish in mind. So I scrolled through my saved post and came across this one by @mymanimania and I just knew I had to do it. I made a bit of a rookie mistake but let me show you first.
I started with 2 coats of Dollish Polish – a race against time on my pinky and ring finger and 1 coat of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on my middle and index finger. Once that is completely dry I do a sponged gradient on my index and middle finger using Essence – Greyt times and Essence – Step into the grey zone. While the gradient was drying I went to work on the flowers. I stamped using BP-L067 and Mundo de Unas – Black. I then coloured in the flowers using Dollish Polish – a race against time and for the leaves I used China Glaze – Emerald bae. I then applied the flowers over the gradient. I tried to apply it more to the cuticle in one and more to tip in the other but I really just wanted the flowers to look good. I topcoated everything and voila!
I really liked the combination of the polish and the gradient and I really like how the flowers turned out. This is where I messed up though. Once I was DONE….I noticed that I had the same stamping plate that was used in the original. Ugh…I’m so dumb. Anyway, I think the flowers are ok. What do you think? Does it work? Let me know what you think.
