HPB Presents: Monochrome Nail Art

Happy weekend pals!

I'm here with my first of two monochromatic nail art looks for this month's Hobby Polish Bloggers linkup, and bundling this one in with Stamping Saturday (which I never seem to post on time...)

Excuse my not so great pictures - I finally had a proper light tent arrive in the mail this week and I'm not totally happy with my light placement and camera settings just yet but I had to snap these and get out fast as there was a MASSIVE spider in my nail room!

Here's what I started with - three thin coats of Rain Dogs from Scofflaw. This was a limited edition shade from early this year and it's utterly gorgeous.

Scofflaw - Rain Dogs

I added some gradient stamping with Hit the Bottle Call a Plumber and Emily de Molly White using a bubbly image from MoYou Holy Shapes 09.

To get the gradient I simply put a blob of each colour side by side on the image and scraped a few times slightly shifting the scraper up or down each time to blend the colour. It's surprisingly easy once you get the hang of it!


Hope you're having a wonderful weekend wherever you are, don't forget to check out both the Hobby Polish Bloggers and Stamping Saturday linkups below!
