Red x Black Stripe Mani for Tracy's Birthday Collage

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

June 3rd was my IG friend Tracy @scarletohara65's birthday, and Debbie @ladyandthe_stamp secretly contacted a bunch of us nail artists to do a birthday mani for her. I got to know Tracy about a year ago and she's not only a talented nail artist, but also one of the sweetest ladies I know on IG. The theme was 'Red' as it is her favourite colour, and I couldn't think of using any appropriate polish for this occasion other than Picture Polish o'hara. She told me long time ago that she absolutely loved this polish and recommended to me, and I remember it the whole time. That's why I decided to place my first order at Picture Polish to get this polish, and luckily the order arrived in time to do this mani.

For this mani, I started off with JOSS Will Not (white) for thumb, middle finger, and ring finger. I then placed 2 sets of striping tapes vertically on my nails, painted Picture Polish o'hara (red holo) and darcy (black holo) over them, and peeled them off immediately. Once that's dry, I stamped a swirly pattern from Bundle Monster BM-718 using Mundo de Uñas White, and added a silver rhinestone. I finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. For pointer and pinkie, I simply painted o'hara topped with rhinestones.

It's such a simple stamping mani but I love the contrast with red and black. Picture Polish o'hara is a true stunner, and I'm so happy Tracy recommended this polish to me! The compliment I received from her made me smile :DD


6/3はインスタのお友達Tracy @scarletohara65の誕生日でした。Tracyの親友のDebbie @ladyandthe_stamp が2週間ぐらい前に私を含む共通の友達に声を掛けてくれて、彼女のためにネイルを作成しようということに。Tracyとは1年前ぐらいにインスタで知り合って以来、頻繁にやり取りさせていただいています。バースデーネイルのテーマは彼女の大好きな色「赤」。実はかなり前にTracyと話をしたときに、「Picture Polishのo'haraが本当に好きで」ということを聞いていて、いつかo'haraを買いたいな~とずっと思っていたのですが、今回の話をいただきいい機会なのでPPで初オーダーしようということに。出来上がりがこちら。

親指、中指、薬指のベースはJOSS Will Not (白)。ラインテープを2セット爪に縦に置き、その上からPicture Polish o'hara (赤ホロ)とdarcy (黒ホロ)を塗ってすぐに剥がす。乾いたらBundle Monster BM-718の渦巻き模様をMundo de Uñas Whiteでスタンプ。シルバーのラインストーンを置いてGlisten & Glow HK Girlトップコートで仕上げ。人差し指と小指にはo'haraを塗ってラインストーンを追加。

And this is the birthday collage for Tracy. 21 nail artists collaborated on this. WOW!


It's such a stunning red, and I couldn't stop looking at my nails.
Lucky the sun was out to see the pretty holo sparkles too


I had a bit of a trouble with this BM plate, and some parts didn't transfer very well.
I used one of the detail brushes Minnie sent me to touch up. It would have been
impossible without that detail brush!

ボトルを真っ直ぐ持つ「Picture Polish持ち」にも挑戦w このショット、商品ページにいかがですか?PPさん(笑。ちなみにこのBundle Monsterのプレート、きちんと柄が転写されなくてちょっと苦労しました。かなり欠けた部分が出てきてしまったので、Minnieが贈ってくださった極細ブラシを使ってちょいちょい描き足しています。線の細いスタンプなので、あのぐらい細いブラシでないとムリでしたね。Minnie、改めて素敵なブラシをありがとう(;▽;)

そんなこんなのTracyのバースデーネイルでした。本人にも喜んでいただけて何よりです♪( ´▽`)

Thanks Minnie! I know right!? o'hara is simply gorgeous and I'm soooo glad I bought this! XD I remember you used this swirly pattern on your white mani too and I really loved that! :D Pity my plate seems to be shallow etched though, and I had a hard time transferring images onto my nails. I used the same plate later on, and gave me another hard time. Grrr. Lucky I got amazing brushes from you that I could easily fix though :D Thank you so much again, sis! <3 <3
