31 Day Challenge! Day 8- Metallic Nails

Good Morning lovelies!!

  Welcome to day Eight of the challenge. Today the list calls for Metallic nails. I didn't really have any direction in which to take this mani because the term "metallic" left me open for so many different options. In the end I went with one of my new Color Club Foiled colors and went with a Mermaid-y theme.
  So for this look I started with Two coats of Color Club's Perfect Mol-Ten. I wanted to create a layered look with the stamping so using Bundle Monster plate BM209. First stamped with China Glaze Jolly Holly. Then, using the same stamp I went over Jolly Holly with Color Club Cold Metal. For my ring finger I did the same process with a stamp from the same plate. All topped off with a coat of SV.

I think it's an ok look. This actually looks a lot better in photos than it did IRL lol. In photos I really actually quite like this but in real life I couldn't even look at my nails hahaha! Now, Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Metallic nails!

I'm super excited for Rainbow nails tomorrow!!

  1. I love these! The colours are beautiful! I have so much trouble with my BM plates, the image doesnt come out on to the stamper tool! So annoying! xx

  8. The double stamp reminds me of those old school 3d comics, where you'd need flimsy "glasses" or these double lines are visible!

    The colors really compliment eachother and I am blown away by the effort you are putting in to this every day!
