Creative musings in bright colors

Pink and Pointed

Oh look, a pink manicure :-p. This one isn’t precisely Valentines-themed, but I figured the colors work so I might as well post it! This mani took a lot of time, because my two accent nails and my thumb were made from a stamping decal. Namely, Bundle Monster plate 604, where I then painted over every single tiny opening with a gradient of pink holographic polishes. It took forever, but I’m really proud of how it came out!

It is a bit sad that even hand-placing a decal, I can’t get everything 100% centered. Oy. It is also slightly sad that I couldn’t come up with anything more fun for my pinky and pointer nails, but I was SO TIRED OF LINES that I just went with dots. And because they are super-glittery, I think its ok!

My thumb ended up being my favorite, because I basically didn’t have to trim down the design. As it turns out, the most recent set of Bundle Monster plates fits absolutely perfectly on my nail. Which means that if I was able to stamp with perfect precision, it would be great (I can’t, so I tend to have to double stamp my thumbs, but it did make it very easy to apply the decal!).

All the pink holographic glitters! This might be the prettiest mani from this week (I think everything this week ended up being stamp-related. Oops!) so I hope you enjoy!

  1. Ooh, pretty. I love pink and brown together – it looks great with the decal. 🙂

  2. Ahh, love the color combination!

    Love this so much. I have the same design on right now stamped in harp on it over kb shimmer’s shade shifter. Did you have to double stamp the thumbs and if so how do you get it in one decal?

    • So, I did not have to double stamp my thumb but ONLY because I made a decal. I usually do double stamp (because I can never position a stamp perfectly). I have never tried a double-stamp decal, that would be a challenge!

  4. Hm, hm – when I first saw this, my immediate reaction was, “Wow! That is really pretty; it pops and the designs compliment each other, one so complicated and the other so simple but both lovely with interesting use of line and color.
    I wonder what’s wrong with me that I can’t agree with the artist who created this unsatisfying n/a design ? : (

    • Hahah! I’m just a perfectionist, and it bothers me when one nail is very busy and the next one is plain. Doesn’t stop me from wearing styles like that (like today), but it always makes me wonder if I could have made the mani more interesting by making all the fingers maximally complicated!

  5. That’s so cool that the stamp fits perfectly!

  6. Love this design it’s so pretty the colours go really well together

  7. The decals are gorgeous, you did an amazing job!

  8. Oh my godness, this is absolutely stunning! I can’t believe the decals you made, so impressive! xx
