Dark Grey with Gold Lace Half Moon Stamping | Twinsie Tuesday

The Twinsie Tuesday prompt this time around is grey and gold and I have some dark grey nails with gold lace half moon stamping.

I don’t personally think grey and gold go brilliantly well together. Grey is a cold colour and gold is a warm one. Grey goes much better with silver I think. So to make it work, I chose a darkish grey that could almost be black (Essie Cashmere Bathrobe), and stamped with gold. I think they go OK together.

I used one of the Bundle Monster blogger collaboration plates, from set 2, BM-XL206. This is Nailstamp4fun’s plate – thanks Swanette. Her plate has a large lace design and some smaller, lace patterns, floral designs and a couple of a geometric images too.

I used one of the French tip lace designs and decided to use it as a half moon stamping instead of a tip.

I love this Bundle Monster set and have more designs using other plates coming up soon. You can buy this plate on its own from the Bundle Monster website for $4.99, or you can purchase the entire set of five plates for a slightly less per plate, at $19.99.

You’re so right grey goes much better with silver than gold, but boy did you make it work! This is a very sophisticated and pretty design!

Honey, I have another question to you about blog design. How do you prepare your gallery pages. I want to have something like that but couldn't achieve it :/

Claire Kerr

Hi Alice – my blog is a self-hosted WordPress one, and the gallery functionality comes as part of the theme/Wordpress itself. I see your blog is a Blogger one – there may well be some functionality or an add-on that you can add for Blogger, but I don’t know much about Blogger. Are you in any nail or blogging Facebook groups? Perhaps ask in one of those – people are usually helpful 🙂

Nail Art in Wonderland

I see. Yes, I use Blogger and I really couldn’t find a way to do what I want :/

I’m in Twinsie Tuesday group, but I do not know any other nail groups on facebook. Can you suggest me some? ^^

I love the subtle shimmer in the your base polish – it compliments the gold stamping. I too used a dark grey base for my mani.
