This mani involves a gradient and negative space and layered stamping. I think the combination is why I love it so much. I love all of those things on their own and they're even better together. I started with a gradient of China Glaze Too Much of a Good Fling and I Just Cant-aloupe over a white base. Both of these have a fantastic creme formula. I'm glad I listened to this review and bought them both. Over the gradient I added a coat of China Glaze Golden Enchantment (the gold version of Fairy Dust that I don't think anyone knows about).
Over that gradient I stamped the negative space image from UberChic Beauty 15-02 with Mundo de Unas Bronze.
Then, since this image is designed to be layered with the more detailed flowers so I stamped those with Mundo de Unas Black. Now I want ALL my negative space images to come like this, as two layers. I topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top and was good to go. This mani got me some compliments at work so I wore it for a couple days and was sad to take it off when I had to.
So there you have it - my first Nail Challenge Collaborative April design. I'm so proud of myself for not waiting until the last week of April like I have with the last two challenges! Down below we'll be able to see if anyone else has brought us their springtime manis yet.
'Til next time...
