First up I have to say, I love this theme! I had so much trouble just picking one idea for this theme…there was just so much scope in this theme! I’ve gone with a combination of a tape manicure and stamping for this manicure and I was so happy with how it came out.
I started with 3 coats of OPI Alpine Snow as my base colour, then I taped my nails into three triangular sections and painted each section a different colour using China Glaze Recycle, For Audrey and Cult Nails Feel Me Up before sealing it all with top coat to dry it out before stamping.
Once everything was dry, I started taping off different sections and then stamping them with various geometric designs I have on my jumbo plates. I originally planned to stamp every section but by the time I had filled two out of three on each nail I decided the balance was right and it would be too busy if every section had a different pattern on each nail.
Some of the challenges I had was that CG Recycle was a bit thin so it needed two coats before the first round of tape could come off. It also took a really long time because after stamping each section I had to seal it with top coat and leave it to dry before I could tape off another section on that nail. I love the colour combination though, it feels perfect for spring which is just around the corner here now. We had a gorgeous sunny 20C day when I did this and it perfectly reflected my mood (if we ignore my awful toothache from my wisdom teeth…which will have come out by the time you read this, woo!)
