Nail Art ~ Dandelions

Sometimes I like to hear the story behind a mani. Don’t you find that a lot of manis have a story behind them? Not all by any means, but I think a lot do. This mani definitely has a story behind it, a rather long and I think a funny story. Wanna hear it?

Nail Art ~ Dandelions

Once upon a time many years ago I was brand new to the nail polish community. I was still figuring out how to paint my nails properly, much less be able to do any nail art. But I loved looking at nail art, like most of us, and I often tried to figure out how certain manis were done. Now no doubt I brushed a lot off as “stickers” when they were probably reverse stamping. But the first time I saw dandelion nails I was completely blown away, I could not imagine how on earth they were done. It was also the first time I had seen a story carried across multiple nails. It was a couple years later before I came across the Sugar Bubbles plate and it was a major aha moment. 🙂

I hope you like my dandelion nails. It’s funny to think how far I’ve come in just a few years, that there was a time I couldn’t wrap my head around what was in fact a simple mani.

    Oh yes I so head you. When I first started doing my nails I wasn’t even aware there were stamping plates!! This is a very cool mani ♡

    Actually, I bet many moons ago it WAS stickers. But I always loved this image and art. It’s awesome

  • I love that Fresh Paint shade. I do think it’s a pretty funny story and I’m sure i was there many times when I was starting out. Hell, even today I have no idea how people do certain things since I’m so challenged!

  • The stamping came out perfect. I’m going to check that plate out!

    Great stamping work it’s simple, but you need a steady hand to make the right placement. I really like the color combination.
