Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Is Spring sprung for you (well.. for those in the northern hemisphere). It’s been a beautiful week here so far, & very warm! I even wore bare legs yesterday with a dress. It was a very exciting moment.
Today I’m all about the next prompt of Glam Nails Challenge April. This is #4, I think. & the prompt is ladybug, which is actually a design I don’t think I’ve ever done on my nails. & naturally, I decided to break out my stamping tools for this particular look.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Seche Vive Fast Dry Top Coat
- Essie Mint Candy Apple (new version)
- Starrily Vantablack
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pucker Up!
- Nailstuff.ca clear stamper & scraper set
- Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-L026
- Harunouta Potted Garden stamping plate L036 (lady bug image)
First off, yes to this beautiful blue! I always forget how good Mint Candy Apple looks on the nail! I own both the old version & the new version & I adore both.
Secondly, how freaking cute is this lady bug?! I totally forgot, however, how impossible it is the pick images up off that stamping plate. This took a few tries to actually get on my nails, & I had to do some freehand touch ups, but I’m super happy with the end result! It’s the perfect little pop of colour. 🐞 & it’s lovely Spring vibes.
What do you think of these pretty lady bug nails? Do they scream Spring to you? Let me know all your comments & thoughts down below!
Happy Wednesday lovelies — it’s almost the weekend!
