Subtle Striations

I went on a date with my ever-patient boyfriend on Friday, and decided to do my nails to match a new dress. Bright red, with lots of layers criss-crossing each other at funny angles. Lucky for me, bundle monster makes a stamp for that!


This mani took 20 minutes. Red polish (Pure Ice – Siren), then top coat to dry it along. Stamp with BM plate 209 using a deep red metallic polish (Zoya – Isla) and top coat.



I tend to shy away from tone-on-tone manicures, I prefer oh-my-god-too-many-colors-and-there-must-be-glitter-somewhere, but this was a nice change. And a fast one. And the boyfriend actually seemed to like it!


Of course, my other hand also went red. You’ll see what I did there soon enough. The best part? That one only took 5 minutes 😀
