Mandelas

So, this mani has a complicated set of inspirations, and doesn’t quite do any of them justice. I got the idea for a mandala pattern from Lucy’s Stash, but I decided I wanted to use her direct inspiration instead, and latched onto these two mandalas by elspethmclean. However, I really can’t make dots a small as I wanted to! Thus, my mani isn’t as nice as I wanted but look at the mandalas anyway because they are stunning.

Eslpeth’s mandala stones start with a black base, so I did the same. I grabbed a bunch of yellow, orange, red, pink, and neons and went to town. This took an hour. Oops!

I am NOT going to list all the polishes I used…there are at least 16 and I give up. Sorry!

Anyway, lots of dots. I should have gone with my first idea (two-color dot circles, which I KNOW I can do!) but you never learn unless you try new things!

Hope you enjoyed!
