Swirls & Rainbow Stamping Mani

Friday, August 05, 2016 4 Comments A+ a-

Another month has flown past, and it's August already. I was in another state most of July, and only came back home the other day. It's good to be home! A bunch of nail mails were waiting for me, so I guess I'm gonna be busy for a while. Sad thing is that I have some nail breaks from doing dishes while I was away, because the accommodation we stayed at had no dish washer. Grrrr... I'm slightly unmotivated because of this, but hopefully they all grow out soon.

Today's mani is what I created a while ago, even before Ane Li's tribute mani. I started off with white base, then using four colours (yellow, turquoise, purple & pink), made a diagonal gradient for all nails. I stamped a swirly image from Cici & Sisi wedding season plate using Messy Mansion Chalk, and partially stamped the same pattern with Messy Mansion Carbon. Finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

I had a bunch of untried Picture Polish shades with me, so I decided to use some of them. This is actually the first time I tried diagonal gradient, and I quite like the effect. Maybe I should do gradient manis more often.

7月もあっという間に過ぎてもう8月。先月は他の州に滞在していて、つい先日戻ってきました。やっぱり自宅はいいなぁ~。nail mailもいくつか届いていたので、しばらくまた忙しくなりそうです。ただ、先月滞在していた宿に食洗器がなかったこともあり、連日の皿洗いで爪が数本折れてしまってモチベーションがダダ下がり中・・。家事をされているネイルアーティストの皆さん、皿洗いは本当に爪に悪いのでお気を付けください。

さて、今日のネイルはだいぶ前に作成したものです。前回のAne Liさんの追悼ネイルよりも前に完成していましたが、披露のタイミングが逆になってしまいました。出来上がりはこちら。
Finished product. Taken in the sun

ベースは白。黄色、ピンク、ターコイス、紫の4色でスポンジに斜めに塗っていき、爪に載せる。その後、Cici & SisiのWedding Seasonプレートの渦巻き柄をMessy Mansion Chalkでスタンプし、同じ柄の一部を使って再度Messy Mansion Carbonでスタンプ。HK Girlトップコートで仕上げ。

Colour order of gradient is slightly different for middle/pinkie and pointer/ring fingers,
so it kinda looks like I used more than 4 colours, doesn't it?

Picture Polishは2月に大量購入したのですが、今まで塗れずにいたので出張先に数本持っていきました。せっかくなのでここで一気に4本使用。人差し指/薬指ペアと中指/小指ペアでグラデーションの色の順番を変えてみたので、なんとなく4色以上使っているような感じに見えますかね。
I can't get enough of swirls. It was an easy mani, but I got heaps of positive comments for this mani on IG

実はこのネイル、個人的には失敗作だと思っていました。ブログにも「ここがだめ」「あそこがだめ」とあれこれ書こうと思っていたのですが、インスタでいつもよりお褒めの言葉が多かった・・(爆。なのでわざわざ欠点を挙げつらうことはせずそっとしておきます(笑。初挑戦の斜めグラデの出来は悪くないし、渦巻きスタンプも好きだからまぁよしとする。

I like it too! I am nuts about ombre nails. I often do some interesting ideas of gradient nails from http://nailartstyle.com/ombre-nails website. And where did you get your idea?

Thanks hun! I didn't get inspiration from anywhere for this mani. I just wanted to use a bunch of untried Picture polishes, and thought gradient would be perfect :D
