Diamonds and Squares




Happy Friday everyone! I was stuck on nail art ideas so I decided to try this week's prompt from @wnac_tkc "Diamonds"

I thought purple squares and black diamonds would look good together... Unfortunately the purple ended up darker than I was expecting so the pattern isn't very visible. I took my pictures in the dark with flash but you can barely see it in normal indoor lighting :( I'm also still trying to get used to my Pueen marshmallow stamper... It's fine for thin lines but I'm having issues trying to pick up images that have larger areas... I keep getting empty spaces in the middle of large areas :( I can pick them up better with my Konad stamper but I don't like how firm it is sometimes... I've messed up my base a few times when I thought it was fully dry but it wasn't.

My base color is Color Club Yahoo Purple. This is from the SXSW collection 2014. I won this polish in a giveaway... I don't think it's available for purchase sorry! It's a red toned purple that looks bright on the first coat but gets much darker on the second coat. It dries with a rubbery looking finish. 

without top coat... and not color accurate sorry!

with topcoat

I stamped with Konad black special polish and this essence plate that doesn't have a number or anything. I got this from Rebecca Likes Nails ages ago and I forgot what she told me about it now sorry! I should have taken a pic of the plate before I used it haha oops... don't mind the scratches on it!

  1. Its a bummer to hear that the stamping didn't show up that great on top of your purple. Sometimes what I plan to create on my nails doesn't turn out what I expected too. That purple is a nice dark color though.

    1. Thanks ithfifi! Ya the purple ended up darker than I was expecting so there wasn't enough contrast between the dark purple and black. Oh well
