Before & After: Dia de Los Muertos Goth Glitz! (featuring Sassy Pants Celebrate + MoYou London Gothic 07 & 09)

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


It's Dia de Los Muertos, and while I normally do a sugar skull mani, I decided to go a little bit different this year...


I started with a base of Sassy Pants Celebrate, a gorgeous glittery holo:

 Then, I stamped roses from MoYou London Gothic 07 and a cross from MoYou London Gothic 09:

I stamped using It Girl Nail Art Sapphire stamping polish; here's how it came out:

What do you think? I think it captures the roses that are such a motif for Dia de Los Muertos, and while the cross is often left out in public celebrations, I just felt like incorporating that aspect of the tradition for some reason this year.


What do you think? It's not the typical Dia look, but I like it. And--HOLO GLITTER!!!


Happy stamping,
M.
