Did them for a niece's frozen themed birthday party. I was so excited to go to that..and good fun it was. Although I cant remember what polishes I used for the gradient base I topped them with kleancolor matter glitter (in I Do, Romeo) and freehanded Olaf using acrylics.
I love how goofy his grin turned out!
For the thumb I tried to stamp a snow flake, but the blue stamping polish was too goopy.
Been wanting to try a rainbow gradient since a long time now..but it looks so complicated that I shyed away from the thought that I would ruin a rainbow. But then one bright summer day I put my mind to it and voila!!
For the Base: I sponged in
Opi Funkey Dunkey, Viviana Outrageous Sky, Lakme Going green, Maybelline sweet sunshine, Loreal Orange, Maybelline Colorshow Keep up the flame
Top Coated with Chg Fairy Dust!! it really is Fairy Dust!!
Models Own is my new best brand of polishes! They apply so smooth, dry fast and stay well. hmmm what more can you ask? Well I ask for more shades..hehe! gotta get me some more.
I squished this one a bit more than I should have while stamping on my nails but nonetheless the effect and the combination turned out well. Only once I saw this macro closeup I realised i had squished it.
Instructions for the decals are given on the back of the sheet. Simply cut the desired part, apply on skin and dab it with wet cloth. I did the same on my nails and then applied a top coat so it stayed put.

Love love the holo from dance legend and these models own cremes. Everything seemed fine till I stamped up and then I applied a top coat which smudged the stamping a bit. But theres always a next time. till then!
These are sweater nails I did sometime in late December. Now even looking at these makes me sweat. The heating is rising up in Mumbai! Yet I think these colors are a cute summer combo I'd like to use again.
Hear Hear! I tried stamping decals again after my earlier disastrous effects..encouraged by my friend Puja from cutenailstudio.blogspot.com/ She does some real fab designs. And mine turned out way better than what I thought. So yeah I am on a stamping decal roll!
Once you get the hang of this thing its quite addictive :p

These are my decals on the stamp. Left them to dry for half an hour and lifted them from the sides. Came out quite nicely and as you can imagine I placed a few orders for more such stamping images that can be filled and squishy stampers too.
