Tribal Gradient Stamping with CICI&SISI Ethnic Elements | Twinsie Tuesday
The Twinsie Tuesday prompt this week is gradient stamping, so I have tribal gradient stamping manicure. It’s a summery, festival kind of look with a hot gradient, stamped with an image from CICI&SISI Ethnic Elements (plate 33).
My gradient is inspired by the colours in the Sky logo. I keep seeing it on TV and have long thought it would make a great gradient for nails.
I used Nella Milano Peach Schnapps as the base for the gradient. I used to paint a white base, but always ended up with undies peeking out after I had cleaned up. I can’t recall where I read it, but someone else wrote that they used a nude base for gradients, and I’ve done it the past few times and been very impressed.
For the gradient itself, I used four colours: Beauty UK Bon Bon (yellow), Barry M Block Orange, Barry M Pomegranate (pink) and Barry M Blue Grape.
It’s stamped with Essence Stamp Me! Black and an image from CICI&SISI Ethnic Elements (plate 33), from the Jumbo 6 set.
