31DC2015: Ornate Nails

piCture pOlish Ornate with Stamping Nail Art

I’m jumping right back in to the 31 Day Challenge where I left off and Day 21 calls for nails Inspired by a Color. The themes are very open to interpretation from today onwards so for this particular prompt, I normally try to pull inspiration from the name of a nail polish.

The one that caught me is a new collaboration shade from piCture pOlish and A Lacquered Affair (read Lauretta’s inspiration post here). The shade is called Ornate and I thought it would be a great excuse to pull out my current favourite MoYou plate from the Fashionista collection. The plate is covered in fancy baroque designs – all undoubtedly very ornate!

For the nails…

I applied two coats of piCture pOlish Ornate as my base.

The stamping is from MoYou Stamping Plate Fashionista 08, with Miss Sporty Zodiac – a polish that I’ve owned for longer than I’ve been blogging about nails! I’m fairly certain you can’t buy it anymore but it is the perfect pink chrome for stamping *le cry*

Finally, it’s all topped off with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

    This is a great design! I have always been looking to do something like this to my nails, so thank you for the tutorial, it seems to be very straightforward and easy to follow. The colours you chose compliment each other very nicely, and the sparkles are a very nice finishing touch!
