Striped Nails for the #31DC2018Weekly

Hello!

I am almost caught up!  Today, I have my striped nails to share with you for Week 12 of my weekly version of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge.  I chose of calming colors and a little image of a succulent for this mani.  I have been obsessed with succulents over the past few years.  I am a brown thumb but my mother can make any plant thrive.  So, for Mother's Day this month, I got her a few succulents to start her rock garden off right.  Hopefully, I can watch her grow these beauties now!  My manicure today combines regular stamping with a little reverse stamping.  I think it all ties in well together!

I started off with a base of a minty cream, "For Audrey" by China Glaze.  I stamped over it with AEngland's "Captive Goddess" using the Candy Plate from Color Club.  This holographic blue/grey shade has a lovely aqua blue shifty shimmer.  You can see it nicely in the stripes when the light hits it!  Next, I used OPI's "Fly" and Zoya's "Flynn" to color in a little potted succulent stamp from the UberChic Succulents plate and popped that on the ring finger.  Everything is topped with a glossy top coat.

Again, another simple mani with multiple components.  These single image coloring in stamps are the perfect beginners step to advanced/reverse stamping.  You must give it a try!
