Hi everyone! I have another unicorn to show you today. Not an actual unicorn, sorry. I have a swatch though and nail art! This is another mani I did with one base colour and thought to snap a pic of the polish on its own before I started with the art. Let me show you the swatches of essence best dressed before we get into the art.essence best dressed swatchessence best dressed swatch

 

Isn’t she lovely? Ya’ll know I love me some purple polish and shimmer is always a huge bonus! This polish applied like a dream and is absolutely beautiful! A dark purple with purple shimmer which is stunning. Of course, plain nails are not an option, so I made some decals with my new Bundle Monster Shangri-La plates. This is what I came up with:essence best dressed with reverse stamped decals using BM-S104essence best dressed with reverse stamped decals using BM-S104essence best dressed with reverse stamped decals using BM-S104essence best dressed with reverse stamped decals using BM-S104I started off with 2 coats of essence best dressed. Once that was dry I used Tip Top Hot Fudge and BM-S104 to make reverse stamping decals. I filled in the flowers with China Glaze Dance Baby and Tip Top Melting Marshmallows using a dotting tool. I applied essence XXL top coat over the image and let it dry. Once dry I carefully removed the decals, top coated my middle and ring nails and stuck the decals onto my nails. I trimmed the edges of the decals with a small scissor and used acetone and a clean up brush to neaten the edges and get rid of any excess. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.

I really liked how these turned out. I still need A LOT more practice with making decals, but after struggling with this technique for a long time I am hooked! You’ll be seeing plenty of this in the future! I hope you like it 🙂
