Vintage Tattoo Nail Art

July 22, 2013

Today I have a special post for you, introducing a design made with one of my new Nailz Craze stamping plates. This is the new Nailz Craze NC06 Tattoo plate, with various tattoos designs.
For this post I made a vintage style tattoo inspired design, featuring the LOVE letters and the rose from the NC06 plate.
I know that a lot of you are very curious to see the new plates in action, so I will do my best to create and post several manicures with the plates so you can get a better idea of how the images will look on the nails.

For this designs I started with a light beige base - Barry M Lychee, one of the new Gelly Hi-Shine polishes which I absolutely adore. As most of the polishes from this collection, it had a great and opaque creamy formula, super shiny finish and quick dry time.
To create the half moons at the cuticles base, I used French manicure tips stickers and applied Barry M Pomegranate, which is a rich creamy red. 
To stamp the LOVE letters I used Konad's Black and the Nailz Craze NC06 plate.
To create the rose I used the stamping decal method, which I will explain in my next post. It's a simple technique in which you transfer the image from the plate to the stamper, and then paint the inner part before transferring it to the nail.
The colors I used for the rose were Barry M Pomegranate and Barry M Watermelon.
Once I was done with the design, I sealed it with my favorite to coat - Poshe.
I was very pleased with this design, it's always exciting for me to use the plates I create for the first time and see my ideas for manicures get executed. This finished design was even prettier than I inagined it to be, so I hope you will like it too.
Thank you for reading, I hope to share with you some more of the new designs soon!
