Violet Nails for the #31DC2018Weekly

Hey there!

For the sixth prompt of my weekly version of the 31 Day Nail art Challenge, we are doing purple nails!  I buy a lot of purple polish but I feel like I don't actually wear it that often.  I need to change that because purple nails are gorgeous!  For this week, I used one my of favorite Zoya Pixie Dust polishes and stamped over it.  I am always shocked at how detailed stamping looks over a textured polish.  You would think it would look bumpy and the image would not be crisp.  But it almost always looks perfect!  My stamping is a little more subtle in this look but I hope you like it. :)

For this manicure, I have a base of Zoya's "Stevie" which is a light lavender textured polish with added silver sparkle.  This shade is perfection.  It's feminine, dainty and a perfect pastel for Spring.  But the added texture and silver sparkle gives it a slight edgy feel.  Like "Yea, I wear pastels.  But I also love to rock!"

I stamped over two coats of Stevie with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep (from the Insta-dri line) using a design from MoYou London plate Suki 08.  It is a stylized cloud design.  The silver sparkle in the polish doesn't show up great in my photos but it twinkles on the nail in real life.

  1. You just have so much better ideas than me :) And I still haven't tried stamping over texture. That's been so long on my list now.

    Love, Lotte
