Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Colour Contrasts: Colour vs the Absence of Colour

by - Tuesday, November 15, 2016

So today I'm taking a creative attempt at this month's Digit-al Dozen prompt - Colour Contrasts! I decided to contrast colour vs the absence of colour. :) I think it turned out really neat and I'm pleased with how the colour palette's overlap on the middle two nails just a smidge!

I had so much fun playing with making this manicure because I was finally able to play with my new layering stamps from MoYou London - MoYou London Tropical Plate 23 and MoYou London Holy Shapes Plate 19. I didn't actually end up using them for much layering (I have some other manis coming up with that!) but that's okay - still super fun to play with!

Enough chit chat! On to the mani!

As mentioned above I used two different plates to get this look, though the majority of the images came from MoYou London Tropical Plate 23. I just wanted an explosion of leaves and flowers so I randomly chose images and applied them as I went. I really like how the black and white side came out!

Here's a breakdown of the polishes I used:
  • Black and White - Sinful Colors Black on Black, Mundo de Unas White, MoYou London Falcon 
  • Colourful - Ceramic Glaze Surf's Up, Mundo de Unas Reddish, Sunflower and Tutti 

And to finish it off I added a gold strip with Mundo de Unas Gold to indicate the separation of the segments. :) Lots of polish for this one!

I really really like the palm leaves that are stamped on here, and I'm feeling the urge to make a mani just with those images... I bet with some creativity I could also turn the big on (like the one on my pointer) into a feather, too! HMMMM! :)

I had a lot of fun putting this mani together. I'm actually really struggling with this prompt so I decided taking a creative approach to it would be best for me... Do I love all the mani looks I've put together for this week? No, unfortunately. But I'm having fun trying to figure out ideas for them!
