For this week's prompt for the #31DC2016Weekly, we are all doing manicures inspired by a pattern. There are an infinite number of patterns to chose from. Classic prints, fabric patterns, patterns used in art, patterns seen in nature, modern and ancient architecture...the sources are endless! I was inspired by Damask patterns. These are intricate prints that usually have some floral elements to it. It looks classic and expensive. I chose a bold Damask inspired image from the UberChic 7-03 plate to create this look. I started with an alternating base of silver and black the stamped over that base with the opposing color.
The black polish I used was Cult Nails Nevermore and the silver metallic was Sally Hansen Silver Sweep. Both of these were once coaters and stamped beautifully. I think I like the silver stamp over black the best but they are both give a nice effect. I did top this with a glossy top coat. It would have looked amazing with a matte top coat as well. Unfortunately, the matte top coat I used absolutely trashed this mani. So mad. I should do a matte top coat comparison for you all. Would you be interested in something like that?
Thanks for stopping by!
