Egyptian Hieroglyphics Nail Art w/Messy Mansion Stamping

I received stamping plate MM32 from Messy Mansion which has a bunch of different Egyptian images, and decided to do some nail art with hieroglyphics.  I knew I wanted to stamp with gold, so I opted for a dark base so the gold would pop, and then the accent nails have a tan base with black stamps so they contrast.

The dark base is actually a blue to black gradient.  I’ve been struggling with gel polish gradients, but Nails by Shannon just posted a YouTube video showing how she does gel polish gradients… what a great technique!  I had to try this out and it worked beautifully.  The blue used here is Gelish Mali-Blu Me Away, and the black is Couture Little Black Dress.  I stamped the hieroglyphic symbols using China Glaze Passion.  For the accent nails I applied ibd Dockside Diva for the base, and then stamped with Mundo de Unas black. I also added some loose glitter to the tips of the dark nails using Artsyfartsy Crafts holographic gold glitter.
