Textured Orange Stamping Mani

Monday, December 01, 2014 4 Comments A+ a-

Now that beautiful KIKO and P2 polishes arrived, I wanted to play with them immediately. I was so curious about KIKO Cupcake polishes, because I have never seen anything like them from other brands. I actually have this mani in mind ever since Chiro @Nail of This Week kindly offered to send these KIKOs to me.

For this mani, I started off with Ciate loop the loop on middle and ring fingers, then I made stamping decals using orange stamp from MoYou London Tropical 07 plate stamped with Mundo de Uñas Black. I coloured in the decals using 4 KIKO Cupcake polishes, Jasmine, Peach, Mint and Pistachio. Once that's dry, I applied Essence clear polish on my nails as a glue, then placed decals on them. I don't usually apply anything before placing decals, but this time I used textured polishes for colouring, so the decals won't stick to my nails otherwise.

I painted two coats of Peach for thumb (which hardly shows on my photo), Pistachio for pointer, and Mint for pinkie. Then finished off with one coat of Seche Vite.

I wish the coloured bits in the texture shows better through the stamp in photos, but at least it's pretty in real life. I was originally going to just use orange colour for this orange stamp, but these colours were looking so cute I couldn't resist using them together. I wasn't sure how those textured decals would turn out, but they didn't go that thick and easier to manage than I thought. Those cute colours on my nails make me so happy!

前回の記事でNail of This WeekのChiroさんに送っていただいたポリッシュたちをご紹介しましたが、早速使ってみました。このネイルはかなり以前からアイデアを温めていたのでまったく迷いませんでした。出来上がりはこちら。

Finished product, with one coat of Seche Vite. These KIKO Cupcake polishes are more textured
than other textured polishes, so you might need more than two coats to make it smooth

中指と薬指のベースはCiate loop the loop。MoYou London Tropical 07のオレンジ(グレープフルーツ?)柄をMundo de Uñas Blackでスタンプしてdecalを作成。decalの色付けにはKIKO CupcakeコレクションのJasmine、Peach、Mint、Pistachioの4本を使用。decalを剥がして爪の形に切り取ったら、爪にEssenceクリアポリッシュを糊代わりに塗ってからdecalを貼り付け。いつもはこの手順はないのですが、今回はザリザリポリッシュを色付けに使ったので、これをしないと爪に貼りつきません。

あまり見えていない親指にはPeach、人差し指にはPistachio、それから小指にはMintをそれぞれ2度塗り。仕上げはSeche Vite。使用したポリッシュはこちら。

Can you see the coloured bits in the stamp?

今回はザリザリをdecalの色付けに使うという初の試みをしてみました。分厚くなって扱いにくくなるかな?と思いきやそうでもなかったです。1つ失敗したのがベースに黄色を使ったこと。decalの色と馴染んでしまってコントラストがなくなってしまいました。

I'm in love with these cute and yummy looking KIKO Cupcakes!

今回、Secheを1度塗りして仕上げたのですが、ザリザリ感を完全になくすには2度塗り以上必須ですね。Chiroさんもこちらの記事で「粒が粗くてトップコートで埋めるのが大変だった」とおっしゃっています。今回は1度塗りにして中途半端なザリザリ感を楽しんでみました(゚∀゚) いや、Secheでどう反応するか(縮むのか)が分からなかったので1度塗りっていうのもありますが。1日経過して縮みはまったくありません。

KIK Cupcake、思っていた通りの可愛い仕上がりになりました。実はMoYouのこのTropicalプレート、8月に購入したのに今回初使用でした。Cupcakeと組み合わせて使えて満足です\(^o^)/

Thanks Minnie! I was debating whether to use black or lighter colour stamp, but black makes a good contrast with these pastel colours I think :D
And you know what? I was googling cupcake pics for inspiration the other day, haha! XD Will probably do one at some stage <3
