China on my hand
I’m not the most creative when it comes to nail art, usually I just do a subtle monochrome stamping or I see an amazing idea on another blog and try to copy it. So when I got this idea for today’s mani, I was pretty darn proud of myself!
My inspiration for this manicure are those old style china patterns that were on my grandmother’s plates. I’m sure you all have seen them, but here’s a pic to jog your memory. I thought this would be a super cute style for a nail design, so I got out China Glaze Snow, China Glaze First Mate and Konad image plate m73 and went to it.
I’m so happy that the design I had in my head translated this well to the nails! First Mate works beautifully for stamping, and this design is just what I had in mind when I thought of the china pattern. Also, this particular design is great when you have to double stamp, which I had to do on a couple of nails. It’s so swirly that it’s hard to make out where the edges are, which is perfect when you need to hide the flaws.
Where do you get inspiration for your nail art?
