CND Paradise Collection Nail Art: Color Blocking with Stamps
For this mani I started with a base of CND Shellac Bicycle Yellow. I drew on the orange squares with CND Shellac Electric Orange, and the green squares using CND Shellac Lush Tropics with a dotting tool and cured. I did the same with the blue squares next using CND Shellac Cerulean Blue. I applied a thin layer of top coat over the whole nail, cured and wiped off the tacky layer. I applied two pieces of scotch tape to each nail, covering most of the nail except for the blue square, and then stamped the pattern onto the exposed patches using my BM-404 stamping plate and white Konad polish. And then I applied one last layer of top coat and cured again. I love how it turned out!
The design on this stamping plate was created by Anutka from Wacky Laki! She had several of her designs chosen for the Bundle Monster CYO collection and I love them all.
I didn’t intend on showing the other design, but I may as well since there’s nothing wrong with it. I just didn’t like it for reasons that I can’t really explain. I used all of the colors from the CND Shellac Paradise Collection in this mani and used striping tape as a guide for painting the crisp lines. What do you think? Am I crazy for hating it? I think the colors are just too random for me… I like uniformity! LOL
If my middle nail looks a little thick in these pictures it’s because I actually broke the tip off and repaired it with two coats of acrygel! Love the stuff! Read about the acrygel method here if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
