Floral Gradient Stamping

July 15, 2013

Today I have another nature inspired post for you ladies, this time with some pretty pink flowers.
To create this designs I used a few flowers designs from a stamping plate and a gradient stamping technique, which I will explain below.

To start this design I applied two coats of Lime Crime Milky Ways, a delicate vanilla shade, one of my favorite polishes which I used over six times that I can recall.
For the stamping I used 3 different designs from a Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA61 (item #6459).
The quality of the stamping plate is really good, and the designs are quite large so they even covered my nails entirely (except for the thumb, no complaints about this since there are only a few brands which I can get a full coverage with). I'm always looking for nice flowers designs in stamping plates, and these designs were pretty to my eyes.

To create the gradient stamping effect I chose to work with three colors; GA-DE Rodeo Drive (red), Barry M Grapefruit (pink) and Life 304 (peachy orange). I applied one drop of each color at the outer line of the design on the plate, and scraped it a couple of times so the colors blend into the gradient look. Believe me, it's much easier than it sounds, just try this and if you need any help you can check youtube for some great tutorials. So yeah, it's that easy!
I sealed the design with one coat of my favorite Poshe top coat, and there you have another lovely flowers design, super easy to execute and looks great.
Thanks for reading!
