Summer Nails

Hola niñas! Hoy les traigo un nailart estampado un poco adelantado a la estación jajaja. De bases usé Barry M Gelly en Green Berry y Emily de Molly Setting Sun (un precioso coral con efecto holográfico). Luego sobre la base de Green Berry agregué una capa de Polish Me Silly Freckles, un topper surtido de glitters neon en distintos tamaños y colores. Luego agregué el estampado con los esmaltes Mundo de Uñas Aqua y un coral que mezclé usando Geranio y Rosa Mexicano. Los dos diseños estampados son de la placa Topa Topa TP01, una marca francesa indie que hace placas con diseños preciosos y que encargué hace poco. En fin, espero les haya gustado y muchas gracias por leer!
Though we're in the middle of spring where I live, I have summer on my mind. Specially since I recently received my new Topa Topa plates, one of which features some fun and summery designs. I took like a million pics of this mani and loved them all, which hasn't happened since I lost my old softbox. I had the hardest time narrowing down the pics for this post. After months of struggling, it seems like I finally found a setting that works for my pictures, yay! Anyway, on to the mani.

I started with a base of Barry M Green Berry on all my nails, except for my index. Green Berry is a very bright blue-green (slighly leaning toward the green territory) creme that was easy to apply and opaque in two coats. I really love this shade of green and it kinda reminded me of Picture Polish Chillax.

For my accent I used two coats of Emily de Molly Setting Sun. This is a coral shade with a soft holographic effect. It goes on very well and is opaque in two coats.
Then I added a coat of one of my favorite glitter polishes to the Green Berry base, Polish me Silly Freckles which is an assortment of neon hexagonal glitters in different sizes and colors in a clear base. It's a great topper for neons and neutrals alike, love it <3 br="">
Then came the stamping part. I used my Mundo de Uñas stamping polishes, but I didn't have a coral color to stamp with, so I mixed my own with Mexican Pink and Geranium to create a shade similar to Setting Sun. On my accent nails I simply stamped using MdU Aqua.

Both the hibiscus image and leaves are from the Topa Topa TP01 plate. The plate is very well etched and picking up the image was no problem.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with how this turned out. I seriously can't stop looking at my nails. The combination of coral and aqua looks so bright and summery it just makes me happy. Althoug I really prefer how my accent nail came out so you'll probably see that as a full mani at some point.

Thanks for reading!
