Textures and moonstones nail art

Hello hey hi,

After this week things calm down considerably here at home.  It will officially be holidays and there is nothing on the schedule.  of course that will mean that every day is filled with errands and things to do and long days right?  I hope not.  I know there will be 3 wish busy days and then I don’t want to leave the house till next time (except for snacks).  That being said, this week seems to be never ending.  How does this even work?  How has your week been treating you?

Today I have some nail art that started off with a swatch and grew into something.  I wanted to swatch China Glaze – Sand dolla make you holla because I was so sure it was more white than my looked.  Then I looked at photos and it looked more pink.  Mine looked a bit more nude pink toned.  So I swatched and then I paired it with a creme and then an idea was born with stamping and well….so it carried on.  Let me show you my swatch first and then what I did with it.

This is 2 coats with no topcoat.  Mine is a nude (with a slight pink tone) texture with multi coloured glitter.  It applied really well and I liked it more than I thought.  There is a reason why I didn’t have any of this collection but now I am sure I need to get them all.  It’s really pretty and made me think of soft and delicate but in texture version.  So let me show you what I did with it.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Sand dolla make you holla on my pinky and ring finger and 2 coats of China Glaze – Note to selfie on my middle and index.  I then stamped using Spring Garden L003 and Colour alike – a Milk chocolate.  I then coloured in the flower using China Glaze – Something sweet and used Essence – Glamaxy far far away topper for the moon.  Once it was dry I applied it close to the cuticle of my middle and index fingers.  I topcoated and that was that.

I wish the flakie topper showed off more in the moon of the stamped image but I did originally do it without so I like it either way.  It feels gentle and soft and I really like the combination of colours.  I especially like how the stamping polish looks on the nude.  What do you think?  Does it work?

Thanks for reading,
