Three days in and I am having a ton of fun with gradients! I seriously doubt I will ever be sick of this look, there are just so many ways to use it. When I started to think of blue for today all I could think of was the song Blue Monday and then I was sad it was Tuesday and couldn't make an 80's music joke. So instead of Blue Monday nails I bring you it's hipper, less angsty cousin Blue Tuesday.
- Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
- Essie Blanc
- Orly Snowcone
- Sinful Colors Midnight Blue
- Red Angel stamping plate RA-120
- blue rhinestones from a random dollar store set
This mani was a study in patience. As in I have none and therefore made more work than necessary for myself. I didn't wait long enough for the top coat to dry before I stamped (yes even with Seche Vite, I told you I have no patience) and I ended up having to redo two nails on each hand. The results were totally worth it though because I love these. I've never tried to accent stamping with dots or gems really and I am liking the effect. These make me think of ribbon jewelry with blue crystals. The way these little rhinestones catch the light is just so pretty in person, I think these may be my favorite nails of the challenge so far. Do you guys like using rhinestones or do you not like the texture?
