NOTD | Mosaic nails using three shades of Orange


Hello my lovelies! Happy Hump day! I have missed you!

Last week was terrible, I was feeling under the weather, with a temperature and the flu. I dragged myself through the weekend, on Monday my hubby left for a business trip and the chaos unleashed at the Polished Polyglot's house.

Today's post will be a quick one, playing catch up with last's week prompt for the "40 Great Nail Art Ideas" challenge.
The long weekend is almost here are you taking Friday off too? My hubby is! So hopefully we get to enjoy a bit the nice weather FINALLY coming to Switzerland (to stay? don't say it out loud, nice weather is shy, so shy...shshhh).


For today's challenge I was to do a nail art with three shades of orange and my personal prompt was "mosaic/stained glass nails". I didn't think twice before pulling my holo stencils from Born Pretty Store:




I started with one coat of Sally Hansen Winter Wonderland and let it dry. Then cut off some pieces of my stencils, I placed them on three of my nails: my pinkie, the ring finger nails and the thumb. I painted the small "mosaic" bits with the following shades:  OPI Juice bar hopping, Zoya  Jesy and Essence Caramel Cheese cake.



I peeled the stencils very carefully and added a coat of topcoat. On the rest of the nails I sponged a gradient using  OPI Juice bar hopping and OPI I'm Never Amberrassed from the Sheer tints collection. I addid a black rhinestone for a final touch (it just seemed right) and topcoat. Easy as cake!




I hope you've liked my manicure, although I'm a bit late with this prompt, and if you want to see many other ideas for orange nail art, don't hesitate to pay a visit to my fellows here below!
Love,
Nati
