And another month is almost over, summer days are going away too fast. For glitter/tropical prompt I did tropical nails using thermal polish Gossamer dust, so that it matches June macro challenge and instead of glitter I used flaky polish the Silence. Also I tried for the first time reverse stamping, instead of making decals. It's a bit tricky, but faster than decals. I picked up stamping image, colored flowers using gorgeous orange Ellen from Moon nail supply and stamped them on not completely dry and a bit sticky layer of flakies. I had to redo couple nails, because my timing was not good, but this technique is definitely worth learning. Thank you Sumeet for telling me about it!!! Needless to say I'm in love with result, just look at macros, shimmer, yellow to orange thermal change, flakies and stamping, this mani has it all.
