B is for Bubbles!!! :P



 
Okay, so I'm not sure if it counts as 'nail art name' but I made my stamping of bubbles and decided to post it for the challenge! I couldn't decide on any of my polishes starting with a B (and there are more than one!) so this is what I did... I started off with a thick coat of Nail Envy by OPI as a basecoat, then I applied two coats of Catrice's How I Matt your Mother which is a very interesting color...I guess it is a matte blurple. Great polish.
 
How I Matt Your Mother, two coats, no topcoat.
 
Then I did some stamping with Mash-43 plate and No Place Like Chrome by Essie. This contrast made the base color look a lot darker as you can see in the photos. I didn't apply a topcoat to keep the different finishes from both polishes intact!


ESPAÑOL:
 
Bueno, ahora si que no estoy segura de que cuente como nombre de nail art pero hice unas burbujas como stamping y las usaré para el reto de la letra "B". Comencé con una capa gruesa de Nail Envy de OPI, después apliqué dos capas de How I Matt Your Mother de Catrice. Este esmalte es de la línea "Brushed Metal Effect" que básicamente significa que su acabado es mate, pero tienes la opción de volverlo brilloso con una capa de topcoat.
 
Este es el acabado original del esmalte tras dos capas
 
Finalmente hice stamping de burbujas con la placa Mash-43 y No Place Like Chrome de Essie. Al colocar este esmalte tan luminoso hizo que mi base se viera más oscura como pueden apreciar en las fotos. Y decidí no aplicar topcoat para mantener el acabado original de ambos esmaltes. Me gustó mucho, creo que se ve divertido :)
