The Music Man(icure)

Good day! Today I would like to share another nail design featuring a Born Pretty Store stamping plate :)


For the background, I attempted a vertical/centre gradient, and holy crap did that not work. My nails do not C-curve downwards like normal people--they ski-slope upwards instead. I could not get a nice straight line.. it would be all fat at the tips and then barely touching in middle... meh. So I gave up on the idea of a smooth gradient and instead just sponged randomly to make a two-toned blue background. They're both Soulstice Spa polishes--the dark blue is Monterey and the lighter is Kona. And then, to add to the blue-ness and cover up my gradient-failure, I added a coat of Confetti Ice Ice Baby. SUCH a great electric-blue glitter!



Then, of course, the magic! I stamped with plate BP-47 using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep. I love this whole plate, but the treble clef and music notes really jumped out at me as nice for this backdrop.


And then, of course, topcoated with Seche Vite.



I hope you liked today's design! It would be perfect for anyone who sings, plays an instrument, or just loves music...This plate as well as heaps of others can be found at the Born Pretty Store website!
