Stamping with glitter placement

Last week, Anutka from Wacki Laki created the most spectacular nail design. The moment I saw it I knew I had to recreate it and now that I have worn it, it has become possibly my most favourite manicure ever. It incorporates my two absolute favourtie things with nail polish, gold and rainbow!

I recreated her mani using almost the exact same polishes and nail art supplies.  I used China Glaze Mingle with Kringle as my gold base. I used black polish and stamped with the same image from Bundle Monster BM-422.

I had just received the multicolour glequins from the Born Pretty Store, so I also had the exact same glitters. Using dabbs of top coat, I applied a rainbow of hex glitters into each cell of the honeycomb design. Because my stamping placement isn't perfect, I did need to cut some of the glitters for the edges and this also meant I could fit in an extra row of colour






Whist this was one of my favourite manis, it also took close to the longest times for finishing a mani. To complete all ten nails from bare nails to the last layer of top coat, it took me nearly one and a half hours!

Oh, and if you think this looks pretty in the photos, then gawd dam you should see it in real life! It reminds me of some sort of tall, ornate bottle with a cork in it, and if you polished it a genie would come flying out.
