Hello lovelies,

 

If you're tired of seeing all the autumn colours you'll love today's polish! I have here SpaRitual Oracle which is sparkly blue glitter that looks like twinkling sea around a tropical island. It throws me back into Summer mood :)

 

Oracle - light metallic blue glitter. The glitter is dense so I needed just two coats for full coverage. It applied nicely and dried fast and gritty. I'm wearing one coat of topcoat over it but it wasn't enough for completely smoothing out the surface. On the other hand you could wear it without topcoat and have it as a textured glitter ;)

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm stamping again! This time I'm doing aztec print nail art that combines stamping, freehand painting and rhinestones. I call it stamp-paint method. It is basically using a stamped design as a guide, or complimentary design to freehand painting. It's meant to be different than the lead-lighting technique where you colour in empty parts of stamped design.

 

Let's have a look at what exactly I mean...

I started with painting two coats of SpaRitual Oracle. Then I stamped the aztec print using white nail polish and MoYou London stamping plate PRO XL collection 03. The next step was to paint yellow and blue patterns using acrylic paint. Lastly, I topcoated the nails and added rhinestones.

 

What do you think of this technique of freehand painting into stamping? I quite like the result :) It is a bit more difficult than creating stamping decals by filling in colours or the lead-lighting technique but it is also more versatile. If you try this technique then please tag me and let me know how you got on, I'd love to see your creation!

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
