Today's guest blogger is the gorgeous Courtney from Tales From the Makeup Bag. I love this look with holo stamping! It adds a real pop to the nails.Thanks so much Courtney for sharing your mani with us :)
I'm pretty excited about doing a post for Theresa because I'm a big fan of her blog and love her nail art skittle manis! Unfortunately I am not particularly good at freehand nail art (due to lack of patience and my tendency to chuck a hissy fit if something doesn't work out). So, I decided that stamping was probably a better option for me, as it is relatively fool-proof if you use the right equipment.
I used OPI Pink Friday and Do You Lilac It for my bases. Then I decided to mix things up from my usual stamping with foil polishes and try stamping with holos instead.
For the stamping, I decided on Ozotic 513 (purple) and Color Club Halo-graphic (pink).
The Ozotic seemed to stamp better and stood out more than than the Color Club but overall I quite liked the mani.
Then, as is often the case with me, I decided to check Instagram while waiting for my nails to dry.
I then managed to bump my nails which led to a hissy fit and a change of mani – A England St George and Lady of the Lake:
