How is everyone week going so far? I've got a quick post to share with you today. With spring fever hitting me hard this year I wanted something bright and cheery on my tips. I decided to try a neon gradient with a little stamping. While this didn't turn out exactly like I had hoped I still though it looked pretty cool.
I started with a white base and sponged on Orly Tropical Pop (yellow) Saturated (purple) Milani Pink Hottie and Fresh Teal. No matter what I did Saturated wanted to photograph blue and after about 100 photos I gave up on getting a color accurate picture. It really is this great intense purple color. While it's a great purple I think it is what went wrong with this manicure. Saturated ended up being too dark for the stamping to show up very well against.
See what I mean? It shoes up better in pictures than it does in real life and that was a bit disappointing for me. Otherwise I love this manicure.
For my stamping I used Zoya Black Swan and MoYou Plate 04 from the Kaleidoscope collection. I love this collection from MoYou, and use it the most out of all the image plates that I own. So you will probably see more designs like this in the future.
And of course I had to share a macro shot with all of you. This is the one nail that turned out pretty much perfect. With even blending on the gradient and a pretty close to centered image. That is a huge accomplishment for me by the way. Image placement is the hardest part about stamping for me. If you have any tips Id love to hear them.
