Snowflake Stamping over a White-Grey Gradient

I've been feeling cold all weekend, so my mind turned to snowflakes.

I started this look with a white base of Barry M Coconut. This is another of the Gelly range, and is a really nice slightly off-white creme. I don't think it's as good as Models Own Coconut Cream, as the MO one is a bit more opaque (and smells nice into the bargain) but it's a nice polish. I then sponged using Essie Maximillian Strasse-her and Barry M Grey to get a gradient. 

I then stamped over everything using MoYou London Festive plate 02, and Barry M Silver Foil. The Barry M foils (silver, gold and lilac) are fantastic for stamping - they're opaque, shiny, smooth... I wish they'd do them in other colours! A red and a green would be awesome for Christmas.

Anyway, I'm really pleased with how well this came out! I don't think I've stamped over a gradient before, but I do like the effect.

Incidentally, I snapped this photo in the middle of the process because it amused me - gradient and stamping together is MESSY!



  1. Love this and the pre clean up picture made me laugh. Can't believe it's nearly December already!x

    1. I know, it's crazy isn't it? I was sure we've only just had July!
