Matte Metallic Gradient with subtle marbling base

Recently I went out for brunch to celebrate my upcoming birthday, and this matte metallic gradient stamping was the design I created. I went to B&H Buildings with my besties Lisa and Kim, for an amazing bottomless brunch with apple and pear mimosas.

Freehand Flowers and Lines for Valentine’s Day

My latest design for Maniswap Circle really takes me back to when I did loads of freehand nail art. This Freehand Flowers and Lines design inspired by Sezies Nails (Sarah) is based on a dress, and was originally created in white, pink and black. I used the Maniswap prompt colours of brown, white and red to create a beautiful Valentine’s Day design.
