crumpets nail tarts:| 26GNAI red & pink

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog. I'm so late in getting this up. Have you ever had a day where nothing works? I literally spent 1 hour picking up my swarovski crystals that had spilled. Anyway apologies for my tardiness. Now onto more fun stuff. Today I bring you another crumpets nail tarts challenge. A fortnightly challenge with a different theme each week. The theme today was red & pink. So I did a bit of a mix. Let's delve into the details.

I started by applying a very light pink onto the middle and ring fingers, a red on the pinky and pointer. I used a beautiful rose water decal that I got in a set from aliexpress. I got like 100 for $2.

For the ring finger i did a gradient first using the medium and dark pink, I then added some chevron vinyls and changed the way I did the gradient to get a scaled look. I still felt a little was missing so I added clear swarovski crystals to the pointer and pinky I used the bluesky decor gel which you dry in an led lights for 20 seconds. Then to finish off I sealed with the artistic topcoat.
