Hi everyone! It’s not often that I dream about nails. I would think about them and perhaps daydream about manis, but while I am asleep my dreams seem to be reserved for other things if and when I remember them. One night though, I actually dreamed about a mani and just knew I had to try and recreate it. It was the very next mani I did. Let me show you what my subconscious conjured up.
I started off with a base coat to protect my nails. I sponged on a gradient using Tip Top Melting Marshmallows (gift) and Rubybox Nailed It! Pretty Minted (Press Sample) as a base for my stamping. Once my base was dry I used bornprettystore plate BP-17 and Tip Top Hot Fudge to stamp over all my nails. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
I absolutely loved how this mani turned out. This was definitely a good dream! The colours looked so pretty in a gradient and the gold, sparse stamping took nothing away from that. These nails were definitely very soft and delicate. I know sometimes I wear some really way out designs on my nails and I love that, but every now and then a girl just wants something intricate yet subtle. I actually haven’t dreamed about nails again since this, but if it ever happens again I think I’ll follow my gut and definitely recreate whatever I saw in my dreams because I felt it really paid off.
Have you ever had a dream about your nails or dreamed of a nail design and then executed it? Am I weird? Okay, I’m definitely weird, but I don’t think I’m alone in this! If you have ever done something like this drop a link in the comments, I would love to see! Don’t forget to tell me what you think of these in the comments below 🙂
Thanks for reading!
