Hi Beauties, how are you? I hope you are in pink of your health:). Did I already mention that I am quite motivated for nail art these days. Past few nail arts went off well so is my confidence up.
I am here to share a bright and colorful nail art today. I started doing this nailart for the Crumpets prompt of “Gradient with three colors- one of which should be pink”. Now, I had so many gradient combinations zooming in my mind. If paired correctly, all gradients look tasteful and pretty so I was having lots of thoughts. Eventually I picked up Blue , Yellow and of course Pink.
I am not a gradient pro but I getting there (at least I think I am getting there, don’t know about you 😛 ). Also, I have never done a three color gradient I think. So I was excited to see the result.
I did want to try out freehand only, but last evening I got a squishy stamper from http://Bornprettystore.com/ for review along with other items. I was very curious to use it. So, restless as I am I jumped to some stamping.
I have used Bundle Monster CYO 2013 plates which is my friends. The stamping is done using Sinful Color – Black On Black. It is great fort stamping.
I prepared a base for gradient with Sally Hansen – White On. If you paint a white base for gradient, the colors are more prominent and build up well. For gradients I used Enchant Blue Polish which my friend ‘Anita’ got for me from Qatar. The yellow is NYX- Pastel Yellow. And finally the heart throb pink is Models Own – Sun Hat from Polish For Tans Collection. Its a brilliant neon pink.I mattifeid the nail art using a Matte Top Coat. Ohh! It has been over an year I haven’t matified a single nail art. And now seeing the result , I am wondering am I a fool not to use it for so long?
Onto the stamper now. The stamper is double sided, one to pick up bigger images while the other for smaller. The head of the stamper is squishy which is great. I did not need to prime the stamper before its first stamping.
I did not have to press the stamper hard to pick up images, just a gentle push. The images are picked up so well. I chose a big image (full nail image) with both fine and broad lines to test the stamper. But each line was picked up on the stamper.
The image transferred fully and neatly to the nails . Again pressure was not required to transfer , just a gentle push. It was a pleasant, convenient stamping experience. I am happy with the scraper too, it has a plastic end and not mettalic. So it would not scratch the plates while using. The heads are extra large in size so no issue with picking XL images too.
Overall, these are really good and I would recommend you to pick one. You can buy them from Bornprettystore.com . If you use my coupon code HQBQ10 , you can enjoy a 10% discount site wide. They offer free international shipping too.
I hope you guys liked my nail art and the stamper too 🙂
