The tri-polish challenge day 28: China roses over gradient


Hi my dears! How are you?
The fourth mani of September is here! if you read my post with some frequency, you might know by now the fourth nail art of the month is always the toughest to me and the one I like the least. But this time, I might have been inspired by the Autumn airs, I actually quite like my mani!


This was a rather simple mani, I started painting two coats of Essie She's picture perfect, then sponged a gradient using Dior Capeline and Claire's no name blue. I topped it with a coat of sechevite and stamped some China rose flowers using konad plate m29 and konad special polish black and then re-stamped using the same designs and one of my latest findings a chrome nail polish from a drugstore brand called Under line in Argento. I was wowed by the stamping power of this silver!

 All in all I think the mani came out pretty decent, what really kills me is I wasn't able to get one decent shot!! the battery of my camera was dying and the autofocus was flipping, as it usually does when lacking power, and I'm a total ZERO to focus manually! after nearly 50 shots I gave up and thought I'd recharged the battery, but by the time the battery was full... guess what?? Major nail break! Arrggh! I broke my middle finger nail right in the center of the nail bed, and totally forgot I had to take further pictures... So you'll have to bear with my blurry shots, LOL!


I hope you like this mani despite the quality of the pictures, and please, do not forget to check the manis of the other participants!!
Love,
Nati

  4. Wow this was so gorgeous! I really like that you've double stamp, it looks vintage in some how and the colors are so bright. Sad that the camera was flipping out but you still managed to get some shots with focus and that the most important. :)

    1. Oh, it hurt a little at the beginning but luckily I still had 8 manicures prepared in advance for the 33Days challenge, so I can make my broken nail gently grow back ;)
