Under A Spell

Last night I wasn't feeling up to anything complicated, so I did a quick stamping mani. The end result reminds me of this kind of design (don't really know what to call it):

For the base colour I chose Barielle Elle's Spell layered over OPI We'll Always Have Paris. Then I used Barry M Gold Foil to stamp using BM-210 plate.

There is a hint of the flakes coming through in this one, but when I look at my hands it's a bit more evident


I really like how this came out! It also reminds me of something else:

Aren't these beautiful? The contrast of dark and light, and the saturated colours - so lovely how it seems to come alive! Hope you've enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!

  3. The stamping is so pretty! I believe that design is a more complicated version of the Fleur-de-lys made popular by the French. I am not really sure what period though. I love how it turned out on your nails!
