Step-by-Step Nail Art - Earth Day 2017

Press Samples Featured*

Hello lovely readers! Today I am sharing an Earth mani that features a simple technique as well as some stamping.

Continue reading for more details!



The Base
For my base I started with a layer of white polish, as I wanted to do an ombre on top of it. You can use one of the polishes that you will be incorporating into your ombre as a base, but your colors may blend better over white.

After my white polish base dried, I used a makeup sponge to achieve an ombre with Verde and Turquesa* from Moonflower Polish (previously reviewed here).

The Flakies
After my ombre was dry to the touch, I added a few brush strokes of Supernova (H) by Starrily Polish for a little extra sparkle.

The Stamping
For the stamping, I used Dia* by Moonflower Polish (previously reviewed here), a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store, and a soft stamper from FabUrNails.

I finished off the look with a layer of glossy top coat.
