Double Stamped and Leadlight Roses

Hello! 😀


ILNP My Little Glacier and China Glaze I’d Melt For You

My nails today where a bit of an experiment! I was really at a loss about what to do for my post today.

So I closed my eyes and grabbed the first two polishes from my polish pile! Then I did the same with my box of stamping plates!

Leadlight Roses

Leadlight Roses

The polishes are My Little Glacier (H) from ILNP and I’d Melt For You from China Glaze. I also used two of the tinted polishes I mixed a while ago, along with Konad special polish in black.  The stamping plate is MM07 from Messy Mansion.

I started with a couple of coats of My Little Glacier, then using the center leaf pattern from plate MM07. Here’s the link to the plate Messy Mansion MM07

Then using I’s Melt for you I added the barbed wire and the roses.  I used the dark purple and the dark blue tinted polishes to colour the roses here’s a link to the post if you want more information on how I mixed the Leadlight Polishes

I think I’m going to have to try randomly picking polishes and stamping plates again some time!

I found that the Nimbus technique is really fun! And definitely something that I’m going to try again!

I started out with a couple of coats of white on white as the base, then starting with Vendetta which is the darkest polish I used a cotton bud soaked in acetone and polish to dot on the colour.

When each colour was dry I repeated the process (with a new cotton bud for each colour)

Then I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite!

I couldn’t resist doing a bit of stamping over this 🙂

I used Plate MM07 from Messy Mansion, this is the first time I’ve used this plate and it’s really lovely! I used Konad SP Black then another coat of Seche Vite
