Challenge: Stamping Over a Nude Base

Hello dear readers!

Last Sunday's challenge on FB group Adventures in Stamping was to do some stamping nail art on a nude base. I find this group very fun because it stimulates my creativity when I have no inspiration.

Well, here's what I came up with:
More details below....

The base color for this nail art was Palm Springs by American Apparel. Then I did some sponging using other lighter and darker nude tones to give more dimension to the background of my design.

For stamping polishes, I used:
-Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Mint Sprint (leaves and foliage)
-Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Presto Pink (Flowers)
-Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Snappy Sorbet (Flowers on thumb)
-Pop Beauty - Thirty Seven Foggy (Light grey foliage)
-Nabi - Black (Feathers)
For designs, I used:
-XL R plate (Bird on thumb, flowers, big feathers)
-XL F plate (Small flowers, leaves on thumb)
-XL M plate (Big flowers and foliage on ring finger)
-QA23 (Vines on thumb and pinkie)
-A49 (Flowers and leaves on  index)
-m77 (Small feathers and flowers on pinkie)

Here's a detailed picture of what I did on my thumbnail using the stamping decal technique
*I will do a tutorial on this next week

 What do you think of this nail art?
Stay tuned for my tutorial on how to do a nail decal using a stamping design next Monday ;)

  1. Your thumbnail looks very colorful! Nice mani with the sponging.

  2. Seriously!!! You do the cutest manis ever! And I love it that your stamping is not 'just stamping' - the whole composition looks beautiful and I specially love the 'Japanese feeling' to it :D

    1. Thank you so much! I think the Japanese feeling on my nail art it's already embedded on me, since I like Japanese art so much :)

  3. Seriously gorgeous! I love all the stamping images and how they complement one another ~

    1. Thank you! I tried to keep some cohesiveness despite the designs being a bit different on each nail :)
