30 Days of Colour: nail art with Femme Fatale Mirror, mirror on the wall and peacock Chez Delaney stamping "Silver peacocks"


It's a new month and I continue to follow 30 Days of Colour challenge, feel free to join us and use tag #30daysofcolourchallenge. You can find list of prompts for June at the end of my post. For the first day we  supposed to do Silver/negative space mani and I chose to show silver nails with peacock stamping. My base polish is gorgeous silver/holo glitter  Mirror, mirror on the wall, but pictures below are not very color accurate. You can take a look at my swatches to see how it looks indoor and outdoor, in reality it's less blue and more silver. If you look carefully you also will notice that two peacocks have different thickness of lines, this is because I had to use different stampers in order to flip image. It's a first time I notice that stamper affected line thickness. I loved how this mani looked in real life, but my photos are not perfectly focused, I guess due to extreme shine. At the same time macros are really good, so keep scrolling until you see them.

  1. Such a pretty mani, but then again I always love your designs. I can never move fast enough to do a mirror image. Do you have any suggestions?

    1. Myishia thank you so much. You can do decal and just flip it on the other side after your put top coat over it and it dries. I use decal method when it does not want to flip. Also I think it dries slower on harder stampers like small round Konad.

  2. Confused. Where's the 'negative' space?

    1. There is no negative space, for this challenge you can either choose color or technique or combine both, I chose to show silver nails.
