I wasn't going to post my Sunday Stamping "Spring Nails" mani this week for a couple of reasons. Partially because I didn't really love how they turned out but mainly because I haven't mentally adjusted to having mini nails yet. Even after I chopped them down last weekend, I STILL broke my middle nail on my picture hand this week at ultimate. Damn that 175 gram piece of plastic flying at my hands (and nails) at high speeds! But I think I'm going to have to get used to having nubbins so I'm going to suck it up and post them now.
Okay now that you've seen them, here's how I didn't them. I started with a white base (Milani White On The Spot) and then did a gradient of China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around and Grass Is Lime Greener. Then I stamped on the butterflies and blossoms from MoYou London Suki -08.
Then I used the leadlight/glazing technique using some Kleancolor Chunky Holo polishes. They're perfect for this because they're nice and sheer and have a tiny bit of sparkle.
So there you have it. I still have a few more posts worth of pics from before ultimate started so you'll probably see my nail length change in the posts. Hopefully you don't mind!
'Til next time...
