Before & After: Stamped holo gradient

Hello!

Today's prompt is to do a manicure that's inspired by a blogger. This was an easy choice for me--the blogger that has had the most influence on me is without a doubt Laurie of Dressed Up Digits. Laurie is, plainly and simply, the queen of gradients. If it can be gradiented, she has gradiented it--even magnetic polishes. Oh yes. And not just of doing gradients, but then doing amazing stamping over them. Total and complete bliss.

Clearly, then, I had to do a special gradient, and a special over-stamp for it.

I started with a base of Color Club Angel Kiss, a beautiful light blue linear holo:

Then, I did a gradient using Angel Kiss and Hits Apolo, a darker blue holo. Finally,  I stamped over it using Nfu-Oh 61, and Cheeky plate GA30:

I am soooo proud of how this came out. These two blues go so beautifully together, and the subtle stamping feels like clouds in a blue sky to me. I love love love it, and it's another one I never wanted to take off. I will absolutely be wearing this again. :)

Thanks so much for looking, and please check out the other participant's manis, linked below.

    1. Hey Claire! Have you tried Ninja Polish and Llarowe? They both ship internationally and have a nice selection of holos. :)
