Turns out a name for the awesome Japanese scroll art is ‘kakejiku’ which is a perfect description for this mani! Although it looks awesome, I can claim very little effort on my part 😀 (and since the description on the Lady Queen Beauty website says these are Chinese-based designs, I opted against giving this post a Japanese title…but it was the first thing I thought of!).
All the awesome designs on this (the misty mountains and the red flowers) are water decals, from set BLE1813. As water decals go, these are basically perfect. The hard plastic top sheet is easy to remove even from small cut-apart decals, and the decals themselves have pre-defined boarders and a clear background. The decals are thin but not overly breakable, and were easy to re-position as long as they were still wet. 10 out of 10 for ease of use!
I have missed how easy it is to make beautiful art with decals. I have been so caught up in my new stamper that I’ve been neglecting my nail art supply box!
The base color here is a simple pale grey, Bare Bones by Maybelline. I thought about adding gold glitter around the mountains, but I decided against it. Sometimes simple is better!
You can pick up these (and similar) decals from Lady Queen Beauty for $2.15. Don’t forget to use my 15% off code, BPLC15! Enjoy!
