Sunset fisherman nail art.

Hi guys, welcome to my blog. Today's post is a nail tutorial on how I did my recent mani. I'm taking part in the #clairestelle8may challenge on instagram and today's prompt was sunset. Lets get into how I did it.
First let me show you the products i used..


You will need basecoat, topcoat, white polish, black stamping polish, bundle monster and beaching nails collab plate BM-XL204, bundle monster giant mochi stamper, brush, tweezers, acetone and scraper.

For the gradient select your favourite polishes, i used nails inc Kensington passage, Mercer Street, Regent's place, lexington gardens and opi where do suzis mango. Sponge and liquid latex for easy cleanup. You can of course use colors of your choice. Lets get into it.

Step 1...

First apply your basecoat allow to dry then apply 1 coat of your white polish. I like to add 1 thin coats of seche vite so I don't lift while sponging the gradient. Next apply liquid latex for easy cleanup. If you have latex allergies then use tape instead.

Step 2...

Apply the polishes to the sponge making sure you overlap so to blend them.

Sponge onto the nails making sure to let each layer dry before applying the next so you don't lift the polish. Apply a coat of fast drying topcoat to smooth it out.

Step 3...

Next using the mochi and black stamping polish stamp the image with the fisherman on it. I chose to colour his face, jacket and the boat so the gradient doesn't peek through. Apply topcoat to the image and let dry for about 10 minutes.

Step 4...

Now using tweezers peel off the decal making sure to be gentle. Line up the image on each nail. Clean up with acetone and a brush. Apply topcoat to seal everything in. Now you're done. Super simple right? Bet all your friends will think your a Picasso in the making... I won't tell if you don't..

Seriously so easy and looks amazing. If you do try this look be sure to let me know on social media.

Thanks for reading and good luck in your stamping journey..
