I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.

Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.

When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.

Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

Messy Mansion MM21

I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. 😀

For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.

Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.
