Ombré Safari!

Hey guys! So, lastnight I spent like over an hour doing this mani. I was bored and wanted something to do, so kept doing more and more to my nails! Building up the layers and layers of crazy.
How much is too much to have going on at once? I don’t know, but I think I came pretty close! Let me show you what I’m talking about…

I used a zillion different nail varnishes for this one, so rather than list them all I’m gonna be lazy and just post a photo of all the ones I used.

I used 3 shades for each nail, light-medium-dark. Then I used my black Konad stamping polish on top.
So first I painted the lightest colours on my nails as a base…

Then I sponged-on the medium shade for each colour, starting about a third of the way down my nail from the cuticle. Then finally sponged-on the darkest shade on the tips! This is what it looked like before stamping…

It doesn’t blend quite as well as I’d hoped, especially on my thumb, so I thought covering it up with stamps might add some extra detail and make it less noticeable!

And this is my finished product! I think it’s pretty funky :p what do you think?

Good moo-rning!

Okay, so that title didn’t exactly work. Oh well. That’s what I get for trying to be witty!

My new black stamping polish arrived yesterday! So today I thought I’d try out a different kind of animal print I’ve not done before. Cow print!

I don’t really know why I chose Cow. I’m always doing leopard or zebra or something, and thought I’d try something different! To achieve this look, first I painted all my nails white. The only white polish I have is one from a French Manicure set! And as you can see from the pics it’s a bit streaky. White is so unforgiving, and so hard to work with! I absolutely had to do 2 coats just to get even coverage.

Then I stamped cow print on top, using Bundle Monster plate BM-222, and my new polish I was waiting for, Konad, special nail polish – black.

Et Voila! Moody moo cows. Divine Bovine, if you will.
