Queen's Lace: Stamped Nail Art with Cirque Colors

Hey there! Today I have a damask stamped design for you that was inspired by the intricate rose gold charm on my ring finger.

Products Used: Cirque Colors Halcyon, Cirque Colors Ambrosia, Hit The Bottle Oh look...It's Whine Thirty, Daily Charme Rose Gold Metallic Glitter, Lina Nail Art Supplies You're a Damasque, Daily Charme Queen's Lace Rose Gold charm, Swarovski Rose Gold flatback crystals

I am so hooked on rose gold right now! How about you? I swear I could wear it every day and I just love that the shops are starting to carry more charms in rose gold, such as the namesake charm in this design. And I was psyched to finally get my hands on a bottle of the limited edition Cirque Colors Halcyon last year!

I began this look with 2 coats of Cirque Colors Halcyon on my index, middle and pinky fingers and accented with Cirque Colors Ambrosia on my other nails. I finished with HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat and allowed some drying time before stamping.

I stamped a favorite design from Lina Nail Art Supplies You're a Damasque plate using Hit The Bottle Oh look...It's Wine Thirty and my Big Bling from Clear Jelly Stamper.

I've been using this clear jelly stamper a lot recently and I think I'm finally getting a feel for it. Applying the right amount of pressure is critical with this stamper, and I used a lighter roll to pickup the design from this plate that has shallower etching.

Next I applied a thin coat of Akzentz Shine On to my ring finger and placed a Rose Gold Circle Frame from Ocean Nail Supply. I filled the circle with Artbeads Swarvski Flatback in Rose Gold ss12.

Then I placed Daily Charme's Queen's Lace Rose Gold charm followed by more rose gold flatbacks in ss9 and ss7 and cured the nail.

Last I applied Akzentz Shine On to my middle finger and scooped on Daily Charme's Metallic Rose Gold Glitter. I tapped off the excess and cured the nail.

The first time I used loose glitter with gel polish in a holiday design I adhered it using the inhibition layer, but it didn't hold up very well. It really becomes one with the nail when it's applied directly onto wet topcoat as I did here! The surface had a rough texture but the glitter stayed put.

As you may be able to tell from the slew of photos, this design was a favorite for me! Do you enjoy rose gold too? How about the loose glitter trend? I look forward to hearing from you!
