Hi readers from The Beauty of Nail Polish,
I was so happy when Tara invited me to write a guest blog. I adore her work and it is an honor to be on her blog. Let me start my introducing myself: My name is Diana and I’m from The Netherlands I write the D.I.A.N.A blog. I have been stamping for many years and since a few months I try a little bit of freehand sometimes too (nothing special just some sceneries) but stamping will always be my first love
At first I had no idea what I wanted to do for this guest blog, but I thought lets show you a style I really like doing and what represents me and that is sceneries/landscape mani’s. I like making a story on my nails (I often even write a story along with the mani too haha) it is fun to mix and match images or parts of images to make a scenery/landscape.
I did a Fairy tale mani a few years ago using Moyou plates. And this mani is inspired by that one, I really wanted to do another one with Nailways Darker Period – Fairy Tales plate.
For the base I did a gradient with Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse, Lime Crime Lavendairy and China Glaze Neon & On & On. On top I did Catrice C08 Have an ice day topcoat for the holo sparkles. I stamped the images from Nailways Darker Period – Fairy Tales plate using Konad black. And the yellow stars are from Konad M34 using Konad pastel yellow. The white stars are from Konad M3 using Born Pretty stamping polish white. Painted the black near my cuticles and the door and path to the castle. Looking at my nails I really want to go to Disneyland….I have never been there and it is one of my dreams. Here also some pictures of my gradient base with holo glitters.
I also do more simple mani’s…..my nails aren’t always a story, but every now and then I like doing this. Thank you Tara for having me as one of your guest blog writers. I hope you and your readers like my Fairy tale nails. Thanks again<3
This manicure is fabulous! I have the same plate, but never thought of doing anything similar. I will definitely have to give it a shot! 🙂 Anyway, I like this post so much – it gives so many details of the stuff used, and Diana’s gradient is gorgeous as well! Like a fairy tale! 🙂
Thank you so much Diana for being a guest on my blog! I am really lucky to have you here! Keep up with the good work! <3 Thank you my fellow readers, and stay tuned for more guest posts, swatches, nail art and tutorials! Soon… <3
