Pomegranate Filigree Nails

Good evening lovelies

Did you have a lovely weekend? We certainly did. Had such a lovely family day with my sister in law and niece on Saturday. On Sunday I was in the city and could not resist picking up all 5 of the new Barry M Gelly's and I cant wait to show some nail art using them as the colours are bold and fabulous. We did break out the BBQ as planned but the weather was disappointing and we had to eat inside :-(.

Onto my nail of the weekend...

I started with just one coat of Barry M Gelly in Pomegranate. This is an all time favourite of mine and I love that I could get away with just one coat as I only had 20 minutes to do my nails before we started our road trip to Clacton. Pomegranate dries super quick and super glossy.

Then using Konad White and Konad Black on alternative nails I stamped using this really eye catching filigree pattern from plate Pueen 26.

I was incredibly lucky to receive the gorgeous Love Lace Pueen plates from Carolina of Colores de Carol fame. Carolina read a comment I left pining after these beautiful new plates and offered to post them to me from the States. Of course I jumped at her very kind offer and just three weeks later I had the full beautiful collection arrive as the best Nail Mail ever. Carolina also gifted me one of the beautiful new colours from her very own Summer Collection which I will swatch for you very soon.

How do you like my alternative stamping? Would you prefer to see all one colour?

Thanks for reading

  1. I love it! That's a beautiful stamp design. I don't think I'd like it as much if it was all one colour, but maybe the majority stamped in one colour with an accent nail?

  2. Love the different colour stamping. I was hoping for good weather this week as I'm off work but its horrible isn't it? :( xx
