First off, let me tell you that this manicure wasn't easy to photograph. All pictures are taken in direct light to show the subtle stamping and the holo, so I apologize if my skin looks a little weird. As a base color I used one of the polishes I got from the blog sale, namely China Glaze I Sea the Point from the Summer 2014 Off Shore collection. This is a shade that I didn't get initially because I have many similar ones in my collection, but when I saw it in the blog sale it had to be mine. It's a bright cobalt blue creme that has quite a thick consistency and is opaque in two coats. I know the pigment in shades like this one gives a weird consistency to some of them, so I'm pretty happy with the formula.
On most of the nails I did some subtle stamping using A-england Spirit of the Moors and a wavy image from plate Fashionista 04 from MoYou London. The pattern looks like chevrons but it's kinda wavy like a water marble. The two polishes are almost identical in color so the stamping is only visible in direct light because it makes the holo come out. Finally, I did an accent finger using one coat of China Glaze Moonlight the Night, which is a mix of blue, green and copper glitter in a clear base. I was really impressed with the glitter density in this one and I love the iridescent quality it has.
The beauty of this manicure is quite hidden but truly amazing. Whenever I wear this type of subtle nail art I feel like it's my little secret. I can look at it all day and admire it but not many people observe it. I don't mind since I don't really like to attract attention. Anyway, let me know what you think and take a look at the rest of this month's Monday Blues in the links below!
Have a great week!
