Monday Blues: Desert Sand

Hello my lovelies! Long time no see! I promise that this time I am back for good. The reason I've been away this long was a huge exam that is an important milestone in my career as a doctor. I've been studying for this for months and months, to the point where I wasn't doing anything else. I even stopped doing nail art. This weekend, after weeks and weeks of wearing just a plain nail color on my nails, I did some nail art again. It seems that it's something that you don't forget so easily. I remembered how much fun it was to do and I think I'm gonna stick with it in the future. I also missed blogging so here I am! This is the first post exam manicure.

The base of this nail art is a stamping marble of course. These are so easy to do and create such a nice effect and a canvas for stamping. It's also a perfect way to use multiple colors that go well together, I started from the wish to use teal (China Glaze Shower Together) and then added a light blue (Kiko 340) that matched. But these colors looked a little boring together, so I needed something extra to make a bit of a contrast. I ended up using China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, a sand toned polish that is quite unusual for me. I haven't worn this one in years because I don't have the tendency to reach for colors like this. It looked perfect in this combo though, so I was very happy. The teal and blue polish ended up mixing quite a bit and yielded sort of an aqua color. I didn't mind it at all, because it goes well with the desert and oriental theme of this color combo.

This summer I acquired a few new stamping plates from which I selected the one I used here, Moyra 48 Colorbook. I stamped using Mundo de Unas Black and the Fab Ur Nails Clear Jumbo Stamper. The star pattern didn't transfer perfectly on all the nails and it isn't perfectly centered, but I still love the result.

I'm so happy that exams are finally over and I can do fun things again! I still have some manicures from before the break to show you so stay tuned! Also, don't forget to check out the rest of today's Monday Blues in the links below!

Have a great week!
