Before & After: Fade into another hue

Hello!!

Today is my next entry in the Nail Challenge Collaborative stamping challenge month. :)

I started off with China Glaze Fade Into Hue as my base color; it's a soft periwinkle creme:

To decorate it, I did a diagonal gradient with China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint on. Then I stamped down the gradient with Cheeky GA35, using Barry M Silver Foil. For a final touch, I added a square blue rhinestone to the accent finger:







When I decided to do a diagonal gradient instead of typical horizontal or vertical one, I was worried that it would be more difficult, but it wasn't, at all. And I love the look of it--a bit softer somehow. I also love this stamped image, it's one of my favorites. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Please check out the other stamped manicures, linked below. :)

  1. I do more diagonal gradients more often than a straight one, but it never occurred to me to stamp like this - love the finished product. Looks fantastic!
