Hello Nail Artists! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I thought I would bring you a nice bright nail art design in case you are suffering from the Tax Day blues. One day, a few weeks back, I received several packages of Nail Mail. Aren't those just the best days?? I opened them to find two nail polishes from the Colors by Llarowe Spring Collection and my first purchase of three stamping plates from the Dashica Beauty Shop. Of course I just had to sample the goods right away and here's what I came up with.
This Colors by Llarowe nail polish is called Neon Punk and I'm in LOVE with the color! I really enjoy wearing bright colors like this during the Spring and Summer months and I think I am going to need a backup of this one! Llarowe describes it as a "neon pink crelly with blue shimmer/sheen". Sometimes I think I am seeing purple instead of blue, or both purple and blue. Either way, the shimmer is so strong that it almost looks like I stamped over a gradient manicure. And it's just as gorgeous in artificial light (above) as it is in sunlight (below). I found the formula to be slightly thicker than I prefer, but it was workable without thinner.
Basecoat/Topcoat: Nail Tek Foundation II, Seche Vite
Base color: Colors by Llarowe Neon Punk
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas (2) Black
Stamping plate: Infinity Nails 42
There are so many great images on the two Infinity Nails stamping plates from the Dashica Beauty Shop that it was really hard to chose one, but I finally settled on the lacy design from plate 42. Measuring 2.5cm long by 1.5cm wide, these images are perfect for ladies with long nails. I used my XL squishy stamper and Mundo de Unas black stamping polish and the fine detail in the design picked up perfectly every time. I wouldn't hesitate to add more of these plates to my collection.
So what do you think? I am happy with the way it came out and I think it has a lot of impact for such an easy nail art design.
I hope you enjoyed this nail art! I'll see you at the next post.
