This mani is about 1½ week old, and it's the last decent mani I've done.. But very decent indeed, if I should say it myself! I wanted to do something with a new polish - and possible a top 10 of the kind - Catrice Purplelized. I'm completely in love with it..
Allright let's start at the end..
Aand the beginning.. Here's Puplelized all by it self - but I can't remember if it's completely color accurate.. But it does show a little bit of the complexiness (is that at word or did I just make that up?) of it..
Allright, the gradient done with Colorama Reflexos Dourados and Nubar 24k..
The first stamp with Pieces 24 Carat... I love this image!
And then the second stamp with Wet'N'Wild Black Creme.. I love it!
Here's a close-up just for funcies..
And the involved:

But that also means that all the spare time I've had since has been spent cleaning, moving furniture etc., so my nails have been neglected! I have polish on, but I never seem to make it to the nail art stage before the polish is chipped from all the work.. And right now I have a cold too, so I'm just ruining my manis by blowing my nose in the middle of doing a mani.. sigh..
But hopefully I'll get on it soon :) I have so many ideas! And I'm rearranging my polishes (right now they are just all over my new 'offcie'), so I'm rediscovering polishes! yay! haha.. And counting them! yikes.. I'll keep you updated on that ;)
Okay, enough rambling..
How do you like this mani - with both gradient AND double stamping.. Is it too much? Or just enough?
Have fun and take care :)
