After showing you the polishes I bought on my first day in Berlin earlier today, I now want to show you a manicure I did using a couple of them.
I started my mani by applying a base coat and then added two layeres of catrice - LE Travel De Luxe - Isle of White (C01). While that was drying I applied liquid latex around my cuticles that I recently bought from Born Pretty Store.
Once everything was dry I applied a purple gradient to my nails using a make-up sponge and then stamped some black pansies on. I actually was planning to only do an accent nail, but as you can see I ended up stamping a few flowers to all my nails.
I then picked out some glitter hexes from a silver polish (I don't know wich polish I used. I just grabbed one from my table...) and added them to the center of each flower. To bring everything together I added Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and sealed in my design. For clean-up I simply had to remove the latex with some tweezers and clean the edges with a flat brush and some acetone.
Here is what I used to create this manicure:
- Black stamping polish
- Yves Rocher - Iris (34)
- Catrice: It's Time For A Lovender (64) - CadiLILAC (71) - Isle of White (LE)
- Stamping Plate DER-31 plus a stamper & scraper
- Glitter nailpolish and a toothpick
- Base & Top Coat
- Liquid Latex, flat blush and nailpolish remover
I am totally in love with this manicure! I love how the colours look together and am happy with my stamping. The gradient even reminds me a bit of a french manicure with the white tips.
And it does fit perfectly with our balkony flowers! I would wear this for a summer day anytime as well as for a girls night out. The few sparkles add a little elegance, don't you think?
How do you like this flowery manicure? Do you like pansies?
