Koningsdag Nails!

Hi guys! Happy Koningsdag! For those of who you don't know what I mean, it is King's day today, the birthday of King Willem-Alexander. And you know how we Dutch people celebrate anything really... in style! Now normally everyone goes all out orange on days like this. But you guys know I hate orange on my nails. So instead I did a (somewhat) Delfts blauw/Delftware inspired nail-art with tulips!

Curious to see more?
The base for this manicure always gorgeous and very bright P2 Gigantic. The pattern is from MoYou plate Pro XL 14 and for the stamping I used Konad white. And that's about it really! I actually hardly ever use stamping images that have to go one completely straight, so that was a bit of a challenge. But I think it turned out really cute.

I hope you guys like it too and see you next week!

  4. I immediately saw Delfts Blauw! Such a classic look. I don't know anything about King's Day, but I don't mind that you're not sporting orange nails as these look great to me :)

  5. So simple and cute, the tulip design is one I haven't seen before! I think you did a good job at getting it on straight!

  6. I think you nailed the stamping, hun - getting it lined up 100% on all nails is also a challenge for me, so I completely understand ;)
    And I totally agree with Lindsey - never mind not wearing orange; these look fab!

    The pattern is so cute - makes me think of Spring. Which is taking forever to arrive.

  13. I hardly ever use patterns that have to go on straight like this either, I'm so terrible at getting them straight lol. But you did a fabulous job, I love the little flowers.
