Silver Stamping

Hi everyone!

I was taking a look through my polish collection the other day when my eyes fell on Essence Over the Rainbow and I realised it’d looked great combined with some silver! I decided to use one of my favourite stamping images which I’ve been meaning to use again for ages. Painted Fingertips | Blue nails with subtle silver stampingI started off with a base of Essence Over the Rainbow. I just love this polish! It’s a gorgeous shade and it has a lovely subtle duochrome effect. I wanted it to look a little more silvery so I used cling wrap to dab Tip Top Chiffon Squares onto each nail.

I really love this image and have used it once before in one of my all-time favourite stamped manicures. This time, the stamping was more subtle, and the silver looked quite soft thanks to the silver combined into the base. That was exactly what I was going for, so I was really happy with the result!Painted Fingertips | Blue nails with subtle silver stampingTo finish off the look, I added a rhinestone at the base of my middle and ring fingers.
