And happy Saturday! Today I want to show you a stamped manicure I recently did on essie - mezmerised. This Splash manicure is perfect for spring or summer.
Using an essence stamping plate and a couple of different polishes, I stamped on four to seven dots on each of my nails. This was a bit time consuming, but totally worth it.
I usually take a picture that shows the name of the polishes I've used for a manicure to make things easier when writing a blogpost, but I have to admit, that I totally forgot it this time and that I am too lazy right now to get up and have a second look at all these polishes. But I think it is not that important. You can use any polish you like for this manicure anyway! :-D
These pictures show the manicure immediately after stamping. There are still a few rough edges and the spots don't exactly match and come together very well.
After topcoating it the colours were combined better, there were no more edges. And I think it also helped bringing out the pattern better and on top of that it seals it in and protects the hard work I put into this manicure. So my recommendation is to use a good top coat when you do a stamped mani.
As you can see my stamping skills are still not the best, but for this manicure it was totally okay in my eyes, that some dots did not transfer to the nail completely. I just stamped another colour closely next to it.
I think this is a fun manicure for a day on the beach or by the pool.
How do you like it? Is this a mani you would wear? How are your stamping skills?
