Spring Floral Stamped Nails & ACG Flawless Swatch
This is what my nails looked like before I added the stamp. I was trying to do another brushstroke design, except the brushstrokes looked more like blobs after I cured the polish. I still really like this look all on its own without the stamp though. This has a base of Artistic Color Gloss Flawless, and then I used a dry brush to add streaks of color with Gelaze Spontaneous (purple), FingerPaints Cool Blue Harmony, ibd Peach Blossom (pink), and ibd Aphrodite (silver glitter).
And here’s what Artistic Color Gloss (ACG) Flawless looked like all on its own before I added the color streaks (blobs?). Flawless is a really pretty, pale pastel yellow with a tiny bit of shimmer to it. I’ve been looking for a pale yellow shade to use in spring and Easter manis, and finally found the perfect one! You’ll probably see more of this color in the coming weeks. :)
This was my first time using the ACG brand and I liked it for the most part. It’s a full size bottle (0.5 fl oz) that I picked up from Amazon for under $10. I did experience some shrink-back and had to flash cure, but that was the only issue. The color was opaque in just two coats and cured great in my LED lamp.
