This is my last June post and it's an entry for pastel/stamping prompt in 30 Days of Colour challenge. This nail art was inspired by gorgeous nails created by super talented Nailzcraze. Just looking at them you might think of Katty Perry's Dark horse music video, and that's where original idea comes from. However, I was not super impressed, by this video, but I fell in love with Natalie's nails the moment I saw them. It took very long for me before I made my version of this look. First of all I had to grow unusually long nails and second there were 2 unsuccessful attempts, before I managed to create something worth showing. Gradient was created using dry brush technique with my favorite black - Licorice by Essie and frame was done using MdU black, because it's easier to apply with detail brush. All stamping images come from Emily de molly plate EDM 08. My photos are not as breathtaking as original, but I'm pretty happy with result.
