For this I started with a sponged gradient of Blackened Bleu a black jelly with blue and green glitter from Barielle Shades, Ciao Bella which is the dark blue shimmer with blue glitter and Gorgeous a teal metallic both from Sinful colors.
The stamping plate is BM-401 from Bundle Monster.
I used Konad special stamping polish in black for the image and a coat of Seche Vite

After all the experimenting with crackle polishes I thought I should let my poor fingers have a rest from the polish remover for a couple of days! I have been using loads of Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, and thankfully now I no longer have quite so crispy cuticles 😀
Today I found my e.l.f Matte topcoat! 😀 It was rather dried out and unhappy looking 😦 but with a bit of acetone and a good mix it is back to it’s very non shiny self! 😀
For this I started with a coat of Greige Gardens from Sally Hansen, when the first coat had dried I used the Greige Gardens and Amethyst from Sinfulcolors for the sponged gradient, this took three coats! The Cherry Blossom stamp is from Moyou Suki collection 02 I used Konad special polish for the image, One coat of Seche Vite to seal the image. Then when it had dried I applied my revitalized e.l.f. Matte topcoat.
I had forgotten how scratchy the brush is in the matte topcoat so I ended up using one of my larger nail art brushes to apply it.
I had also forgotten how much I love Matte polish! 😀

Here is another fire inspired post!
I first tried this with yellow orange and red but I think my yellow polish doesn’t have enough pigment and my nails ended up looking like I had dipped them into a bad takeaway curry
But not to be defeated I tried again with my go to colours of black silver and grey!

I’m really enjoying trying out new (to me) nail art techniques, I realized that by only doing nail stamping I was missing out on loads of other fun nail art stuff! So here is another first for me, Waterfall nails!
Silver Waterfall Nails
I used, Deborah Lippmann – Modern Love, Deborah Lippmann – Hit Me With Your Best shot, Sinfulcolors – Time Off, Illamasqua – Snap, Nails Inc – Old Bond Street, Barielle Shades – Night Moves and China glaze – Cosmic Dust.
I started with a base colour of Modern Love from Deborah Lippmann, starting with the darkest colour using a fine brush, I painted on the stripes, making sure that each colour has stripes of different lengths.
It took quite a while to finish but I really love how this turned out! and I’m going to be trying this again with different colours! 😀
