Gold x Blue Ornate Stamping Mani

May 3rd Update: I replaced the video at the end of this post with YouTube version.

I'm having a break from cleaning and packing for the house move next week, because I'm 600km away from home at the moment. My husband is going away on his business trip, and he asked if I would like to come with him. Hummm, not really, but he convinced me that all the meals are supplied and the accommodation is nice, and also he assured that I could take my nail art stuff with me. Ummm, OK then! LOL. Lucky me, I can still do my work wherever I am, as long as I have internet. 

I brought about 3 bags worth of nail art essentials with me. I left half of my stamping plates and most of my polishes behind, but at least I can create some simple manis while I'm away. So we checked in the hotel and I set up my nail station at the hotel balcony and created this mani.

For this mani, I started off with JOSS More Nail Gold for thumb, middle finger, and ring finger. I stamped a ornate circular pattern from DRK XL Designer 2 using Mundo de Uñas Gold, painted Revlon Royal over it to make a stamping decal. I peeled it off from stamper, cut to nail size and placed on those nails. I added some dots with same Revlon Royal around the semi-circle and finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. For other nails, I simply painted Revlon Royal and added some gold rounds studs I bought from eBay.

It's a simple 2 colour mani, but because of this gorgeous pattern and this glowy gold x Revlon Royal combo, it has such a lush look. I'm so glad I brought Revlon Royal with me, I think it surely added some 'royal' look to the mani :)

5/3更新:記事最後の動画をYouTube版に置き換えました。

引っ越しを来週に控えたこのタイミングで旦那の出張が入りました。「一緒に来る?」と言われてもあまり気乗りがしませんでしたが、食事も全部出るしいいホテルだよ~という甘い言葉に乗せられて私も出張に付いてきてしまいました。もちろんネイルグッズも持ってきましたが、スタンピングプレートは半分程度、ポリッシュも20本ほどしかないので、出張中のネイルはシンプルになりそうです。私自身も普通に仕事があるので、どのみち2回ぐらいしか塗り替えはできないと思いますが。

というわけでホテルにチェックインしてバルコニーにネイルステーションをこしらえ、土曜の朝方に作ったネイルがこちら。

親指、中指、薬指のベースはJOSS More Nail GoldDRK XL Designer 2から豪奢な円状の柄をMundo de Uñas Goldでスタンプし、スタンパー上でRevlon Royalを塗ってdecal作成。よく乾かしてからスタンパーから剥がし、爪のサイズに切ってこの3本の爪に乗せる。その後、同じくRevlon Royalで半円部分にドットを追加し、Glisten & Glow HK Girlトップコートで仕上げ。他のネイルはRevlon Royalを塗ってeBayで買った金の丸スタッズを追加。

使用ポリッシュはこちら。

This lush pattern doesn't really need difficult technique.
Just stamp away and it will come out gorgeous!

持ってきたポリッシュも少ないしあまり凝ったネイルをやる気がしなくて、とりあえずスタンプしとけばカッコよく決まる系の柄を使ってみました。このDRKのプレート、本当にカッコいい&ユニークな柄が多くて非常に重宝してます。

I wish I could have dotted more consistently, but oh well.
Doesn't look bad in real life but at a closeup shot like this, it looks meh :'(

普段と違う場所で動画を撮りながらネイルをするのはなかなか大変でした。動画の最初の方、陽が当たって見にくいかもしれませんがご容赦を。
