Stars!

I used a couple of things but most importantly the Nailz Craze’s stamping plate NC05 for this manicure.

Polishes used:
OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble
Essie Mojito Madness
Essie Mezmerised
Polish Addict (indie) Dr. Franken
Two of Skin Food polishes. I apologize for not knowing the color names. They’re written in Korean.

First, I painted my nails with OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble.

I got my chosen polishes for the stamping plate ready.

Here’s the stamping plate I used by Nailz Craze. I’m pointing at the full multi stars print. This is what I used on my ring fingernail.

This is how I set the plate up for gradient stamping. I painted a generous amount of various colors on top of the chosen design. You could do lines or blobs all over the place.

You will need to work quickly before the polished lines sets in. Take your scraper and scrape in one direction. The excess polish will go on the scraper. Go back to the beginning and use the excess portion that’s on your scraper… and scrape one to two times so it overlaps to create this gradient look.

I picked up the gradient stars with a stamper and stamped it on my nail. I also went ahead and did the individual stars on other nails. I stamped a star and topped it off with the Glossy Glam topcoat, then I would stamp another star on top and repeat the process until I was happy with the results.

I painted Dr. Franken by Polish addict on my pinky and thumbnails.

I hope this manicure inspires you to do some gradient stamping!
Until next time – xoxo, Rica
