WooHoo!! After too long, it feels good to have anything to fairly share with ya’. So here it is– a regular form of appearance. No specific motif or message. Only a fairly sparkle polish and a straightforward pattern that’s colored to fit.
Very first thing’s first
Just what polish did we pick out? It’s an interesting jelly/glitter combination called Orangeblooded by CrowsToes Nail colors.
Ok last one. Keep in mind that glittery beauty from my post? Well, this is another fabulous polish by the exact same brand.
Those of you nail polish lovers who’ve been collecting for some years roughly, may remember the immediate hit by CrowsToes that was called eventually, It’s Hoodie Time! A polish inspired by a favorite sweatshirt making to celebrate the arrival of cooler Fall climate. That polish was distributed thru an Indie polish team which defunct today. To myself and many more’ glee, CrowsToes re-released it as Orangeblooded which is now a stock item in her own .
It’s an awesome jelly polish with tons — after all tons — of glitters cycling with it. Even though as a jelly the color builds well onto it’s very own, I thought we would wear “undies” underneath.
I used one layer of an opaque navy polish due to the fact polish undies. I quickly applied three thin coats of Orangeblooded on top. Simply brushed it on. No dabbing or positioning required.
Nail the information
As a coordinating polish, I decided a fiery red-orange crelly for my pinky. In addition thought we would wear opaque polish undies under this 1 also. Merely to hold things constant.
Upcoming, I picked out a stamping picture that had room enough to permit the glitters to peek through and a structure that I could color in with the complementary colors.
For the stamping, silver appeared like a accent shade that will be noticeable in the blue & orange party.
Suggestion number 1: To keep the colors real, utilize undies whenever reverse stamping.
I am aware it will require additional time, however it’s really worth making use of a layer of polish undies to help make the reverse stamping pop music over a dark back ground. Therefore, I painted the reverse region of the stamping very first with the lime crelly and once more because of the opaque orange polish undies. We briefly considered making use of white while the undies but i believe some will have shown through in spite of how mindful I painted. Using the orange undie resolved just fine.
Suggestion no. 2: as opposed to making a decal, use foil glue.
When preparing for applying the reverse stamping, I utilized a thin level of nail foil glue. Once that has been completely dried out, it made transferring the photos quite simple. In the event that you don’t have any foil glue, you can use a sticky base layer alternatively.
Of course, all things are sealed up with top layer. Fini.
Do you like them? I don’t understand what the forms in stamping structure are supposed to be if any such thing. However in the colors we utilized, they remind me personally of Chinese lanterns.
Tell myself again…what is reverse stamping?
I understand I get confused with all of the different terms thrown all over nail art world. So, I thought I would share just what I’ve discovered becoming ideal information of exactly what reverse stamping is. It is published by an admin the Facebook group Leadlighting & Reverse Stamping (coloured In) Nail Art Group. They’re an excellent team with TONS of helpful tips if you’re looking to join – i will suggest it.
“Reverse stamping: this implies coloring in a graphic from just what will function as straight back side. It doesn’t make a difference what you used to color in with (polish, acrylic paint, watercolors, powders or whatever else it is possible to think of) there are several methods to do this incorporating however restricted to, on the nail or making a decal.”

An Autumn Mood
The pictures I’ve demonstrated to this point had been used a lightbox. Because the polish colors are celebrating the growing season, it felt only directly to additionally simply take some photographs in the open air when you look at the Autumn air.
