Hello my dears, how are you doing today?
We have a very Fall like weather but I still want to share with you a manicure I did during summer using one of the most gorgeous shades launched at that time, OPI That's hula-rious from the Hawaii Collection.
|these are two coats with topcoat|
This is a very beautiful shade of pale green, I do own a similar shade, Zoya Neely, but the OPI one is superior in formulation.
For this manicure I used Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-L024 , Konad special polish in black, OPI Aloha from OPI and OPI My Gecko does tricks. I was experimenting a little with two different advanced stamping techniques. One is reverse stamping, which I used on my ring finger and the other one is DIY decals, which I applied on my middle finger.
Basically the difference between both is that for revers stamping you do not need a clear topcoat and you stamp the image directly on your nail after filling it with the colours you like, while for the decals you need to apply a clear topcoat and let it dry before picking it up like a film and applying it to your nail. I intend to do a video tutorial on these (some day, LOL).
The decals take longer to do but I find the result is much neater and more precise.
Have you tried any of these techniques? Which one do you prefer? Don't be shy and tell me what you think!
