30 Days of Colour: Gradient stamping nail art with Picture polish Moscow, Pirouette and Grace "Chrysanthemums"


It's a last day of spring and my last entry for May 30 Days of Colour challenge. I chose nail design with gradient and stamping using my second favorite brand picture polish. I have to admit that gradient part was a fail. I attempted vertical gradient, but difference between Grace and Pirouette was too subtle, while Moscow was much darker, so I changed it to random gradient, by adding a bit of Moscow on each finger. Stamping part was really easy, but I also added some extra leaves by hand. This combo of sparkling Picture polishes and Cream stamping looked wonderful, unfortunately my photos do not show it in full beauty. This definitely was one of my  favorite May manis and I absolutely love how it looks on super close macros.
