Purple gradient nails

Hey beauties!

So I thought I was out of my funk but nope. I can't seem to get inspired to do nail art. I gave it a try today and I think it came out ok. 

I did some stamping over a purple gradient. It looks blue for some reason though.

Picture polish M Polish OSTP!


I started with two coats of OPI You're Such A Budapest

OPI You're Such a Budapest two coats no topcoat

And since I'm out of liquid latex I put tape around my nails and sponged on OPI Do You Have This Color in Stock-holm? along with You're Such A Budapest.

Remember those days using tape? Lol

Gradient top coated with Seche Vite

For the stamping I used a FB group custom from M Polish called Oh Shit That's Pretty! And a plate gifted to me in a secret Santa swap.

Stamping plate JQ-03

Charm item #21397 from

For another look I applied this charm provided for review from bornprettystore item #21397 in option #8 with some flat back opal pearls around it. I thought it was going to be a bit smaller or maybe my nails are too short for it. So for now it feels too big for my taste.

  1. Purple all the things! I'm so glad liquid latex became a thing last year, I hated using tape

    1. I hate using tape too! I really need to get the big tub from Amazon!

  2. If that top mani is what you come up with when you're not inspired, OMG, I give up! ;-)

    1. Aw thank you! Sometimes it feels like what I do isn't good enough.

  3. Where does one aqquire that purple stamping polish from Mpolish? I want in on this Facebook group

  4. Gorgeous gradient. I hated using tape too, got a big bottle of blue liquid latex really cheap on eBay.

  5. Gorgeous and flawless nails. Gosh, that purple gradient is out of control!!!!

  6. Love that butterfly stamp over the gradient, perfection!

  7. That gradient is everything. I've tried them a few times and they always turn out crappy. Looking at them makes me happy though.
