In the interests of full disclosure, I received the leadlight lacquer Stamping plate free of charge, but not for review. The wonderful people over at Messy Mansion sent me a couple extra plates when my last order went missing. How lovely is that!? 🙂
This mani is one of the ones I created before disappearing for a while, I liked this one far too much not to share it with you.
I really love the look and how easy edge gradients are, the only down side is that they are really messy, a lot more so than a standard across the nail gradient!
I do find that a tiny bit of petroleum jelly/Vaseline rubbed around the cuticle area helps with clean up a huge amount, when the polish is dry it can be wiped away with a tissue, or a gentle scrub with a nail brush.
The products I used are
- Leadlight Lacquer A01
- Illamasqua – Scorn
- Illamasqua – DWS
