Hello Nail Artists! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend! I was busy doing my nails for this MoYou London 10K Challenge, but what else is new? Today I bring you "Harmony" which I created for Day 18: Song. I finished this design with 3 different toppers and I'm curious which one you will like best.
Base coat: Nail Tek Foundation II
Topcoats: OPI Topcoat, Essie Matte About You, Dance Legend Top Prismatic
Polish colors: OPI Alpine Snow and OPI Black Onyx
Stamping plate: MoYou London Rockstar 13
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas White (1) and Black (2)
I started with two coats of Alpine Snow on my thumb, middle and pinky fingers and two coats of Black Onyx of my index and ring fingers.
I chose my new MoYou London Rockstar 13 plate for this theme. I wanted to use the 5th design in the middle row across all of my fingers and wanted it to flow like a continuous image. Which meant I needed to make stamping decals to reverse the image on 2 fingers. To get the best alignment, and since I was making decals anyway, I decided to make one for every finger, choosing the last design in the middle row for my thumb.
I promise to do a video tutorial on my process for creating and applying decals. In the meantime we'll just fast forward to the finished designs. This is Version 1 with OPI's shiny topcoat.
For Version 2 I matted the design with Essie's Matte About You.
And lastly, for Version 3 I decided to try my new Dance Legend Top Prismatic to see how the design would look holographic.
I would love to hear which version of this design you preferred and why, if you'd like to share. Then I will share in the comments which version I decided to enter into the contest.
Thanks for reading! I'll see you at the next post.
