My name is Natalie Elise and I run the Australian beauty blog WalkInMyEyeShadow.I have been following Lou through her blog and Instagram for a while now and I feel very privilaged to be able to write this guest post for her blog.
Today I have a gradient stamping manicure for you. I have seen this techniqued used by a few other nail enthusiasts and decided to try it out for myself to share with you today, this is how it turned out:
As a base colour I used two coats of China Glaze "Something Sweet", a soft pastel pink creme polish from the Up & Away Collection . This colour is really gorgeous and sometimes looks like it has got a little bit of a lilac base to it and is very easy to apply.
I then stamped an image from Dashica Beauty Shop Big SdP C using a combination of China Glaze "Joy", a muted purple chrome, "Poetic", a bronzey rose gold chrome, and "Passion", a light gold chrome. All three of these polishes came from the Romantiques Collection  and create a beautiful shimmery image over the creme background
