Hey There Polished People!
Last night I stayed up super late typing up the post for these nails and this morning I wake up and not only did it not post, it disappeared! Yikes! So now today we have a super short post. 🙂
For today’s nails I tried Leadlighting. I don’t know much about the name- I think maybe it has something to do with the blog that brought it into popularity, or the polishes used…? Anyway, you just stamp a design on white nails, then use a tiny brush and jelly polishes to fill in the image. I think it’s supposed to give you different gradations of color and a painterly effect. Let’s see how I did.
Leadlight Butterfly Wings
I used BM 424 for the wing stamp and OPI Houston We Have A Purple for the coloring. I think maybe this design wasn’t the best choice for this application, because this method is really doing nothing for me. I would much rather stamp over a nice, solid base or stamped gradient.
How did you like these? Have you tried this technique? Also, do you know just from looking at these that they’re butterfly wings? I was surprised that seriously no one in real like knew what my nails were supposed to be! I had to explain them and even then they were like, “Huh. Okayyyyy.” Don’t forget to check out everyone else’s nails by clicking the button below and YOU CAN ALSO ADD YOUR OWN to the linkup! Yayyyy! As always thank you for reading and commenting and till next time- Happy Polishing!
