NOTD 153 – Elevation Lace

Hey guys 🙂 I took this polish back a ways to my first Indie polish purchase, “Elevation – Elbrus”.

This polish is a gorgeous purple with a slight blue undertone, it has teeny blue and purple shimmers to it. I painted two coats of this beauty and then painted a corner piece of lace using “Ulta – Snow White” from stamp “OB36”.

31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 26 – Pattern

I was so excited to try out my new stamps, I bought the pack of 25 Nail Stamping MASH plates on Amazon a few weeks ago and the last few challenges just did not call for them. I busted them out last night and I could not get them to work. It could be that I bought a cheap Stamper with a plastic scraper, in any event, I used it a few days again and same, no such luck. I purchased the “real” Konad Stamper and it arrived today, of course it did, just after I spent so much manual time on this look. Anyway, Cannot wait to try them and I just hope that the issue was the stamper, and not the plates.

I have enjoyed participating in the 31 Day Nail Challenge, I am sad to say it’s all coming to an end shortly, I am already on day 26,  Inspired by a pattern; because I had so much difficulty, you will see below the hard work I had to put into this look, I suppose I could have “cheated” and used my Sally Hanson Strips but I also just got in my Nail Tapes in that I wanted to try as well 😀

I used two Coats of “Elevation Polish – Avalanche” after my “nail-aid Peeling Nail base coat”, once the tape was on in the desired spot, I painted two coats of “Sonia Kashuk- 30 Dream of Genie”. As soon as I painted the first coat, not a minute later I painted the second, and then slowly took the tape off one by one. I then topped it off with “Seche Vite’ ” for quick dry, and off to the next nail 😀
