Reverse Stamping
  • Silver Poinsettias

    Hello there...how are you this evening? I'm doing pretty well. I've decorated my house for my first Christmas in it, which I love! Here's my tree! 🎄

    And of course I still make time for nail art! Here's one I'm very happy with! I'm excited about how the detail came out so clear. I'm not entirely sure if this image was meant to be a specific flower but it looks a lot like little poinsettias to me. 

    I enjoy Christmas manis and I tend to try and create some that aren't so obviously festive. A little covert, perhaps... What do you think? Does this pass as a version of a holiday mani?

    Thank you for stopping by! Blessings to you...

    Hi there, how are you today? I've had an interesting week with its ups and downs but I have tomorrow off for Good Friday so I'm relaxing this evening and looking forward to a long weekend.

    I have a reverse stamped mani to show you today. I think this is the most time I've ever spent on a manicure but it was well worth it! I think it's also the longest I've worn a mani in quite some time. Normally I can't wait to paint my next idea but I've had to wear this one as long as I could.

    Here is my stained glass mani with Enchanted Polish cubed!

    What do you think? I'm so excited about how this turned out and it makes me want to paint more reverse stamped manis. I'll need to ponder my next idea.

    I hope you have a wonderful evening! See you soon...

    Hello, hello! How are you today? It's such a beautiful day today! I am naturally drawn to darker colors for manicures but with spring in the air it's fun to use brighter colors. I pulled out some polishes from the Cirque Heritage Collection for a reverse stamped mani. Here are a few pictures of my process.

    My little work station and the stamped image after filling in the design.

    This is one of my favorite manis in a while! Reverse stamping takes extra time so I only used the images on two fingernails on each hand. I like that it wasn't so overwhelming though. Just something a little extra.

    I hope you're having a good week so far. Thank you lots for stopping by!
