Red and Black Gradation Nail Art

Hello dear readers!

I  recently joined a FB group called Adventures in Stamping, which focuses on you guessed...nail stamping ;) members can post about nail polish or nail art in general but on Sundays there are stamping challenges and we have to do a stamping nail art based on the theme that members voted on.
For July 29th, the challenge was Red and Black.
This is what I came up with:
(pictures can be enlarged)
I used Rimmel - Passion as the base color. I sponged a gradation of Kleancolor Black and Red nail polishes using a makeup sponge, making sure the gradation looked a bit diagonal. I stamped floral and butterfly designs from plates A25, A43, A58, m20, m82, XL H, and XL K. I also added a tiny bit of silver holographic glitter.

Did you like this nail art? What other color combinations would you like me to use with this centered gradation?

Ice Cream & Candy Nails

Hello dear readers!

I would like to show you my stamping manicure using the full-nail design from Q1 plate from Konad that I bought last Christmas .

This is the second time I use this lovely plate. This is what I came up with this time:
I started with white nail polish as a base. For the colors, I dabbed dots of pastel color nail polishes onto a makeup sponge and pressed the sponge on my nails to get this effect. I stamped the Q1 full nail candy design using Kleancolor in black and finished with Out the Door quick dry top coat.

Metallic Pink Zebra

Hello dear readers :)

Here my manicure for last week.
I started with 2 coats of Revlon Innocent from the Edgy Elegance collection which is a pink color with a pastel foil finish. I used stamp plate A22 for the zebra print.

With my nail length it is getting more and more difficult to find a full nail design that covers my entire nail. This is the reason I chose this design, as it is simple and I can do almost seamless double stamping ;)

Extra pic ;)

Do you have any suggestion or idea for a nail art you would like me to do?
Let me know in the comment section ;)

Leopard Print Fail

Hello dear readers!

One of the reasons I don't post very often is that if I don't like my manicure, I don't want to post about it. But I was thinking that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the might be someone who would like it. The same way I post the manicures I like, I should post my fails too. Here it is:

Can you see? I really thought using a leopard print on top of China Glaze Classic Camel would look fierce. For stamping, I used some metallic nail polish that I bought recently. I dried so fast on the stamper, that I missed to stamp some bits of the design. I really thought this would look nice but no, probably Classic Camel is too yellow or the leopard print needed to be darker.

An extra ugly pic ;) 
I promise I will show you a nicer manicure next time and some nail polish/ makeup hauls on my upcoming posts.

Have a lovely weekend♥♥♥
