A2Z The letter E is for...

Elegant


Hello again, and welcome to another Thursday and another letter in the A2Z Nail series. You can look at all the beautiful mani's for this challenge, on the main hub page
So E for Elegant, and what to do??
Elegant for me means something regal, beautiful, sophisticated and stylish. So know idea!!
Then it came to me, so this is what I did...



Painted my nails with 2 coats of Accessorize in Ivory Lace, and matte topcoated it. 


Then stamped the delicate floral image using MeMeMe in Seductive and Konad m71. I have had this plate for a few years and you can see the scratches made with the Konad scraper! Now I use an old card, but the images still stamp well. I matte topcoated again, as I find this doesn't smudge the stamped image.


With black acrylic paint I painted an oval on my ring finger. Can you guess where I'm going with this mani?


With white acrylic paint I carefully painted a silhouette, and attracted the tiny half pearls.


I love the final look, and I think they are very elegant ( for me anyway!) Hope you like them too, I would love to hear your thoughts on this mani.

Stay safe and much love..

    Great tip about applying matte topcoat before stamping.

    1. Thanks, it was trial and error finding that a matte topcoat didn't smudge stamping images, and makes a better base for painting nails x
