30 Days of Colour: Femme Fatale Gossamer dust and reverse stamping nail art with Monn nails Ellen "Tropical delight"


And another month is almost over, summer days are going away too fast. For glitter/tropical prompt I did tropical nails using thermal polish Gossamer dust, so that it matches June macro challenge and instead of glitter I used flaky polish the Silence. Also I tried for the first time reverse stamping, instead of making decals. It's a bit tricky, but faster than decals. I picked up stamping image, colored flowers using gorgeous orange Ellen from Moon nail supply and stamped them on not completely dry and a bit sticky layer of flakies. I had to redo couple nails, because my timing was not good, but this technique is definitely worth learning. Thank you Sumeet for telling me about it!!!  Needless to say I'm in love with result, just look at macros, shimmer, yellow to orange thermal change, flakies and stamping, this mani has it all.

    1. Thank you so much Myishia !!! I had no other plate with this kind of flowers, so I had to be creative :D

  2. I love everything about this mani- the gradient, flakies and stamping all go so well together! I'm really glad you liked reverse stamping :D
