Blue stars


Hello everyone :-) Today I have an older mani with blue stars to show you. I was very excited to make another starry mani with my new Essence stamping plate (called Be Creative!), after liking the gold version so much. Because Orly Sweet Peacock is such a striking blue and has a foil finish, which often covers very well, I picked that color to fill in my stars. The result didn't turn out as awesome as I hoped though, the blue was very subtle so the star shapes weren't so noticable, I mainly saw blurry, shimmery spots of blue when Iooked at my nails from a distance. Quite interesting, but not enough to keep the mani on for very long. I am loving that stamping plate though, so it probably won't be long till I'm doing yet another star pattern look ^^

  3. No this is definitely still awesome. :) I'm really hesitant about those types of blues (too bright for me, lol) but this shows a totally different side of them that I'd never thought to try! I think this is gorgeous!

  13. Too bad the blue didn't stand out enough, in the pictures it looks awesome. Maybe matte topcoat would have helped?
