30 Days of Colour: Lead light stamping "Dancing beauty"


Day 12 is about jelly polish and I want to show nail art done with leadlight stamping technique. It's called "Dancing beauty" and was inspired by my best friend, we know each other more than 16 years and she is amazing ballroom dancer and teacher. I had this idea about a month ago and was waiting for my nails to grow long enough. The main challenge in this  art was to make stained-glass windows around dancer and flower, as I did not have stamping image of widow with space. So I had to make stamping decal and cut it into pieces to combine different parts of windows into one with the space in the middle. Also, the stamping image which I used for windows was asymmetrical and it was super hard to position it, as it never looked straight.  Nevertheless, I really like final result and sparkle of Dark crystal on the background makes it even more special.
