Weekly Mani: Elegant black with gold stamped tips

Hello dear readers,

I finally found some time to do a new mani. This is a very simple mani to do, I’ll do a short video later, but it sure is a standout. Sometimes simple is better :).


I started with 2 coats of LeChat Black Velvet, removed the tacky layer and stamped with an image from Infinity plate #32. I always seem to use smaller stamps at the base of my nails so I decided to try it on the tips this time, I usually roll on my stamps but for this one I simply lined it up on the tip and pressed down. I used my fave gold polish, China Glaze Passion, to stamp with. I added a single gold stud to add more interest. The accent nail is 4 coats of IBD Siberian Minx. So as you can see, easy and simple yet elegant.

    You truly do great work. Just beautiful!! Btw, you should do a tutorial on your hand care! Your hands/fingers look so soft and well manicured :)

      Thank you! I have had a couple of requests about the hand care so I guess I’ll have to do one, lol. I will put that on my list!
