Nail Art

Black, White and Gray Gradient Stamping

By  | 

Are you ready for fall?  I don’t know about you, but I totally love all the vampy colors of fall.  They’re just so sexy and sophisticated!  I also tend to embrace the neutrals in the fall.  Somehow summer is for brights and I just can’t seem to do neutrals in the summer.  Weird, I know.

So, getting into the fall colors and chic neutrals I decided to go with a black, white and gray stamped gradient.

The base on this mani is OPI Embrace the Gray from the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey series.  The stamping is just black and white stamping polish that I used with one of my Pueen stamping plates.

Clearly I could have done a better job of lining up the black to white transition on my nails, but I suppose I’ll just have to remember that for next time.  Don’t look closely at that… Hahahahaha

The pattern of this stamp is sort of floral and sort of abstract.  It’s a great transition stamp for fall because it’s not super summery or literal flowers.  It’s just swirly and fun with a hint of flower to it.

Are you dipping into your fall polishes?  Are the neutrals calling to you?  I’d love to know!

    I think your mani looks really great, Mandy! I love those neutral colors. And I have no idea how to do stamping let alone using different colors on the stamp. Brava!

      It’s really not that hard. Just like anything else, it requires a bit of patience.

    I love the way this turned out. I’m starting to wear darker shades but I will be sneaking in a few pinks for BCA soon too.

      Just a little practice. I’ve seen the amazing work you do with your eye makeup. If you can do that, you can totally do this 😉
