52 Week Challenge - Mosaic or Stained Glass / Pink and Orange

Mosaic or stained glass and pink plus orange are this week's themes for the 52 week challenge. As I don't own any orange polishes, I chose to try a mosaic mani using three holo shades of pink/red.

This mani took some preparation. I brushed ILNP Very Ornamental, a England Her Rose Adagio and Colors By Llarowe Courage, Brains, Heart on a plastic bag and let them dry completely. Then I peeled the color patches off and cut them into pieces. I polished my nails black (one coat of aEngland Camelot) and placed the polish pieces with the help of a dotting tool directly on the wet polish. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top kept the pink pieces in place.

  1. Love your mosaic - was wirth your time!

    1. Thank you Jessie! The mani itself wasn't really time consuming, I just had to remember to start it two days early ;-)

  2. Oh I love it! It reminds me of the beautiful glass mosaics in churches and cathedrals.

    1. Thank you, that was exactly the effect I was aiming for :-)
