NAIL ART: Multichrome Celestial Roses Nail Design

by - June 25, 2021

I like to keep polishes that are new or that I really want to use out on my nail desk so that when I'm trying to plan nail art I have them in my eyeline for inspiration. I actually wasn't planning on doing my nails when I did this mani, but I saw Holo Taco's Cats' Evasion and I had a bit of a lightbulb and had to get my idea onto my nails. I'd had this polish in my collection for a couple of months now, but I could never think of how I wanted to use it as a base until I had this idea so clearly I had to get it onto my nails ASAP.

I actually tend to find multichrome polishes hard as a base for the style of nail art that I tend to do, but I feel like you can always find a way if you just let the inspiration come. Cats' Evasion is described as a predominantly deep magenta shade that shifts towards red and then back again through shades of gold, bronze, and rustic green. For this mani, I actually decided to sponge it on because I didn't want any brush strokes to break up the design. Sometimes doing this on a weaker multichrome will sort of kill the way it shifts, but I really didn't notice any loss of shiftiness when I did it with this polish. I would recommend starting with brushing on 1-2 coats of the polish normally, applying a cuticle protector, and then doing 1-3 passes with your sponge to get full opacity and a really smooth, shimmery finish. 

The inspiration for this mani definitely came from this mani by @nailsandtowel using her Whats Up Nails collaboration plate - get it, it's heckin' amazing - but I changed it up a little bit. I chose a rose gold stamping polish because I felt like it would look really pretty with all of the colors in the shift of this base polish and I think it worked out well. I knew that I wanted to use the moon image on my ring finger and the large rose on my middle finger and I knew that I would love it. I went back and forth a few times on what to do with the pinkie and pointer fingers until it occurred to me that the rose from the sun image would be kind of perfect coming in from the corner of the nail. I also decided at the last minute to add a few rogue stars to my first and middle fingers to add a little bit more interest and fill the nail a little bit more.

Once I was happy with my stamping, I finished with a generous layer of quick dry glossy top coat and voila!

This is definitely a lot more simple than a lot of what I usually do, but that's sort of the cool thing about a great stamping plate and base polish - it's simple and actually really easy to do, but it also maintains a lot of interest. I've actually been wearing this for a few days and it tends to get me at stop lights because the shift in the car is really amazing.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
