NOTD: Deco Swirls

(Nothing to disclose)

Hello!

This is another manicure I did for the Nail Challenge Collaborative; the theme last month was to recreate another member's manicure, and as you can see, I'm running a little behind on it. :)

Here is the original manicure, done by Tina from Light Of The Moon Nails:

For this one, I went more along the lines of 'inspired by' than 'recreate'; I didn't purposefully set out to change it--I adore it just as it is, and would happily have recreated it exactly. but I didn't have the exact stamp she used, so I had to go for a similar overall look/feel. When I pulled out a plate that allowed me to do that, it called out to be done in purple for some reason (who knows why, teams of experts can't figure out how my mind works), so I went with it. Here is my version:

I used Finger Paints Magenta Mural for the index, middle and pinkie, and Pop-arazzi Down The Runway on my thumb and ring fingers. Then I stamped with those same polishes on the opposite color, using MoYou London Gothic 09.


Here are the sections of the plate I used:

I adore this plate--so many gorgeous designs hiding in plain sight. :) And I also have to rave about Finger Paints Magenta Mural--it's a stunning purple shimmer that also stamps, and you can't beat that. :)

So what do you think? Did I at least do her mani justice in spirit??

Happy stamping,
M.
