Creative musings in bright colors

Red-y Floral

This is the mani that matches the one from last Friday! As you can see, they look remarkably similar. That is actually unintentional…I used a white-to-red gradient (over a light pink base) for this mani, and was hoping for red tips. I ended up with pink tips because my red creme is pink-based. Whoops!

Despite the color similarity, I also really like how this mani came out! I went with a darker stamping color, so the design pops all the way down my nail (not just at the lighter end). I also decided to mix up where the gradient was originating, which ended up looking pretty nifty!

You can also tell here just how well this plate is etched. The color that I used to stamp (Visions of Love by OPI) is not a stamping polish. It is pigmented, but has almost a jelly-like quality to it when used as a base polish. Despite that, it stamped darkly and beautifully, with all the thinner lines picking up perfectly. Score one for the Born Pretty Store!
