I’ve been totally swamped the past week, and I was resigned to just paint my nails one color so that I could get some sleep for once. But lo and behold, this color was so beautiful that I felt that I needed to add a little something to it, hence this easy nail art for today!
This beautiful base shade is called Shell Me the Truth from Nicole by OPI. It’s a wonderful pearlescent light pink shade with a gold shift to it, and it’s truly gorgeous. I used two coats here and had full coverage.
I felt like adding some stamping would jazz it up a little more, so I dug through my collection of plates and found this Asian inspired one from Harunouta. I figured that a basic black print would look nice over the pink base.
The stamping was done with Ya Qin An polish in Black. I’m not into having identically stamped nails, so I moved the pattern around on each nail to make it look a little more hand painted.
I used some Ya Qin An top coat over this to preserve the stamping, and I was done in hardly any time!
The print reminds me of Asian dressing screens, but it’s just a pretty design overall.
I’ve got plenty of posts in the pipeline coming soon, so stay tuned! Happy polishing!
