I’ve been wanting to try a quilted look for a while now and with the Mosaic gel paints and a stamp it was easy, if just a little time consuming.
First I did one coat of IBD Whipped Cream, cured and wiped the sticky layer. I then stamped, in Maybelline Bold Gold, a net design from Lesly plate #14.
Then, with Mosaic gel paint in Snow White and fine detail brush, I filled in the diamond shapes, leaving the gold lines to show through. I added enough gel paint to give it a puffy, 3D look and then flash cured after every 3-4 spaces I filled. Once all were filled, I cured fully for 1-2 min in LED lamp. Topped with one thin coat of topcoat.
For the other nails, I chose a cool line image from the new Uber Chic plate #1-01, stamped with Maybelline Bold Gold and then added some metal studs.
Overall, this is a very easy design to do, especially using the stamp as a guide but it was a bit time consuming filling in the spaces.
I hope you like this week’s design and stay tuned for the video how-to!
