Triangle Mosaic Mani using DRK XL Designer 2

Friday, February 27, 2015 4 Comments A+ a-

March 14th Update: I replaced the video at the end of this post with YouTube version.

I had another play with my DRK plate. The pattern I used here is also the one I fell in love with during test stamps on paper.

I started off with Impala Festa, and stamped a triangle mosaic pattern from DRK XL Designer 2 plate using Mundo de Uñas Black. I coloured in those small triangles using 4 Dance Legend polishes from Wow Prism collection, and applied Essence clear polish to make a decal. Once that's dry (45min-1hr), I peeled it off from stamper and cut into half to make a sharp triangle shape, and put it onto nail. I added rhinestones I bought in Japan and finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

This time I used one of the colourful stamper heads I bought from AliExpress (review post here) to make decals, and it worked the way I wanted. I used the clear (translucent) one, and I totally forgot that that was the one I had a bit trouble picking up image during test stamps, but it stamped real well. Phew!

Because I used Dance Legend Wow Prism polishes, they coloured part is so sparkly under the sun, but in the shade the colourful look sort of reminds me of a pop art mani. It took a while to colour in those tiny parts, but I'm glad it came out pretty!

ベースはImpala Festa。DRK XL Designer 2の三角モザイクのような柄をMundo de Uñas Blackでスタンパーにピックアップ。Dance Legend Wow Prismコレクションの4本を使って色付けし、Essenceクリアポリッシュを塗ってdecal作成。45分~1時間ほど待ってスタンパーから剥がし、半分に切って尖がり三角形の形にして爪に載せる。こちらのお店で買ったSS5のラインストーンを載せてGlisten & Glow HK Girlトップコートで仕上げ。

Every time I use these Dance Legends, I get asked where I bought these.
I bought mine directly here and from Llarowe

このDance Legendたち、夏の間は本当によく使いました。もうそろそろ秋の足音が聞こえてきそうですが、日差しが強いうちはまだまだ使っていきます。最近よくいただく質問のナンバーワンは「このDance Legendどこで買えるの?」なんです。いつも私のIGアカウントに遊びに来てくれる愉快な仲間たちには「欲しくなるからもう使わないで!」と冗談で言われますが、皆さん我慢しないでどんどん買ったらいいと思うの。

It took a while to colour in those tiny parts, but luckily I could get 2 pieces out of one decal.
For colouring, I used this detail brush from Born Pretty Store

この色付けする部分、かなり小さく数が多いので、やり始めは余裕こいていましたが終わる頃には薄ら汗が出てました。1つのdecalから2ピース取れるので、両手合わせて5回で済みます。いや、これを10個分作る気にはまったくならんからorz  ちなみに色付けには春の歌さんから送っていただいたこちらのブラシセットの1本を使っています。屋外だとDLがキラキラできれい、屋内だとカラフルなポップアートネイルみたいな感じでなかなか見てて飽きないです。
