With my current obsession with nail stamping, I’ve gone a bit over the top with ordering new plates in the last few months so expect to see lots of stamped manis coming up.
Today’s nails use the two leopard print designs from Vivid Lacquer plate VL010. I started with a gradient of China Glaze For Audrey, That’s Shore Bright and OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips before stamping over the top with Konad Special White Polish.
Once I was done I wished I had used the inverted leopard print design on all my nails, it looks great over the gradient while the normal leopard print I found to look a bit sparse, even though it’s the same design.
I’ve also been playing with a black background (which is really just a black piece of cloth parcel taped to the back of my light box). What do you think? I always found that my white background would really just look grey which I didn’t like, where as my instagram photos are against the dark wood of my desk and I think it makes the overall aesthetic look better. The down side is that my cats will cover the black fabric with hair in no time and I haven’t figured out how to combat that yet!
