Pink marbled stamping nail art

Hi loves! Exciting news: I am on my way to New York City :-D! We are going there for a whole week and I can't wait to arrive and enjoy all the wonderful things this city has to offer. To keep you occupied as well I'll have 2 amazing guestposts while I'm gone and the other posts are just prepped in advance.

So, today's look is based on the monochrome nail art I did a while back, inspired by Nails by Cassis. This is basically the exact same look but with pink accents and white stamping ^^. Hit the "read more" button after the first picture to learn all about it!





As I said I did this look before but this time I went with a more colorful version. My base is the perfect and smooth Cirque Carpe Diem of which I applied 2 coats. After it dried I used a little scrunched ball of saran wrap and OPI Dim Sum Plum to add a first round of color. Then I went back with another scrunched ball and China Glaze Something Sweet to soften the look a bit. Let it dry properly (if you want you can add top coat to speed up drying time) and then add your stamp of choice, I used MoYou London Pro XL 06 and Konad White :-).




Using white on white and some color in between made it look a bit like an acid wash effect - I want to try again using teal shades! It's so much fun when you find a design you really like but that leaves space to add your personal twist. If you use another stamping image the outcome will be totally different too!



What do you think, do you like the pink version better than the black & white I did before? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I recently made a similar design with white stamping over a white base with two colours in between (also applied with saran wrap), and I agree with you: this effect looks amazing!
    I should try it with monochrome colours)
