Gradient stamping!

Hey y'all! I've been a little absent this week because my youngest had a birthday this week! He turned one. Where does the time go? 


So onto the nails, that's why we're here, right? I was inspired by sprinklesnails on Instagram for this technique. Here's what I used: 


I started with Zoya Anchor and then laid down a silver base of Zoya Seraphina. This polish was in my untried pile for so long after I got it on clearance at ULTA and wow, is it ever beautiful! 

Next, I used Maybelline bleached neons (which stamp so well!) in Coral Heat, Day Glow Teal, and Lime Accent for the stamp gradient. I used this image from a cheapie plate with no name:


I thought it was such a dainty floral image! I put Coral Heat at the top of the image, Day Glow Teal in the middle, and Lime Accent at the bottom and scraped like usual, picked it up with my stamper, and slowly rolled it onto my nail. Once it dried, I topped with Seche Vite. 

I really loved how this turned out. Here's another picture of the final result:


What do you think of this look? Have you tried multicolored stamping?
