Today I'm showing you a picture that I actually already took almost six months ago. Why? Because I wanted to participate in the 31 Day Challenge. That didn't happen, as you might know, since I didn't post anything for it. Anyway, I have found a way to make good use of this anyway: Cyw's motto month! February was dedicated to designs inspired by everything Asia, and this mani just so happens to fit that perfectly.
The base color is Illamasqua "Ruthless", an immensely pigmented, vibrant red with strong orange undertones. The stamping is done with Konad plate m24 and regular black nail polish. Although the red is too light, really, this reminds me of Chinese lacquerware. I know this is simple and cannot really be called nail art, but I quite like the simplicity of it.
