I’m going to finish this challenge… Oh I really wish I had more hours in the day! If you have any spare and wouldn’t mind sending them my way I would be really grateful 🙂
I have been wearing this mani for 4 days so it’s a bit messy looking
the song that I chose for this is by Type O Negative and the track is called Red Water (Christmas Mourning) I couldn’t find an official video but below is a link to the song if you want to have a listen!
Red Water (Christmas Mourning)
The polishes I used are
- Dragon – Chanel
- Vamp – Leighton Denny
- Dazzle – Orly
- Black Magic – Revlon
- Black – Konad Special Polish
- Seche Vite
And the stamping plates I used, HD03 and HD05 along with Messy Mansion MM11 and MM29
Starting with 2 coats of Dragon, using Vamp I used the wave image from MM29 for the red water background, I did find that the Leighton Denny polish dried really quickly on the stamper so getting it onto my nails was a little bit of a challenge!
The gravestones are on Plate HD03and the little coffins are from plate MM11 I used Konad SP black for those. Then using Black magic and a tiny brush I (badly) painted on the Mistletoe, for the berries I used my smallest dotting tool and Dazzle from Orly, I also used this polish for the snow flakes, they are all images from plate HD05! And finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite!
Then I spent 4 days rushing about doing stuff, a lot of stuff… most of it involved mud, pastry, poorly pets and filthy water, but luckily not all at the same time!
My nails usually look this chipped after one day! But 4 days! my nails had even grown a bit, which made the shrinking and cracking from the Seche Vite around the base of my nail really obvious! But never mind 🙂
