Enchanted polish gradient with El corazon metallic tattoos "Silver tattoos"


Good day darlings, today I have a design with silver metallic tattoos. For this nail art I started with one coat of Enchanted Polish Reign beau, added sponge gradient with La-la land (at the tips) and Reign beau (closer to the cuticle) and topped this beauty with Rainbow juice. Gradient turned out very subtle, but still lovely. After my polish dried I applied elements of metallic tattoos (application is the same as for regular water decals), let them dry and added one layer of top coat. It has been a while since I wanted to try tattoos in nail art and I'm pretty please with results, although the ring finger with a portion of tattoo on the skin looks strange too me. For the macro challenge prompt "Design without polish" I applied tattoo straight on my thumb nail and it looks ok, I just had to seal it with top coat. Overall, I think that metallic tattoos are nice to experiment with and I'll try to come up another design soon.
