Witty Titles Are Hard To Come Up With But I Like My Layered Stamped Mani

At the lack of a good title, I'm just gonna jump right into today's mani. I started with yesterday's base, Rimmel Pro Get  A Nail Tan, and stamped the triangle pattern from BM-423 with Topshop's Gilted. I knew I wanted to layer stamps but choosing a colour and a stamp took me a while, I ended up choosing a half nail, leafy stamp from BM-309 and my oldest polish Maybelline in Succulent. I topped it all of with one coat of Seche Vite.

I'm pretty happy with the result and, at closer inspection, I'm loving how Gilted shows through Succulent, even though the latter is fairly opaque.

Excuse the smudges near the cuticles...

My mum looked at my nails and she mentioned this reminded her of henna tattoos. Looking at it now, it reminds me of the packaging of a particular Australian apple cider. That's how you know where you mind is. :)

Till next time, 



  1. Love the layered stamping, those two look very cool together. Great job!

    1. Thank you! This combo was actually a little bit out of my comfort zone but it turned out OK. Always good to push oneself outside that box!

    1. I should be thanking whomever came up with stamping! Imagine doing this freehand!!!

  3. So beautiful, I loved the color combination, good job!

    1. Thanks! I had to think hard about the combo but the colours are kinda subtle enough to look good together.
