El Corazon Floral Featuring Messy Mansion Stamping...

Today I've got a floral manicure to share with you. It was inspired by the beautiful Messy Mansion floral pattern which I think looks beautiful and very royal all dressed up in purple and gold...

For this manicure I started out with a base of El Corazon Express Effects N48, on all except for the accent nails. I stamped using Maybelline Bold Gold (70) and the floral Messy Mansion plate MM07...

Here is a scan of the beautiful Messy Mansion plate MM07. This large plate measures 7 cm in diameter. It comes with a blue protective cover on the front and is bare metal in the back. It has gorgeous designs which are sure to fit nails both short and long. I have never had issues stamping with Messy Mansion plates and this is no exception. The images picked up perfectly. I'm sure you'll be seeing more manicures from me with this plate...

The full size nail images are a substantial size of 17x23mm...

And now back to the manicure...
For my accent nails I used a coat of Maybelline Bold Gold and added a fun arrangement of purple rhinestones. Ever since my lacy damask manicure with a rhinestone arrangement last week, I've been wanting to play around with the idea some more. I really love how unique each accent has turned out to be. I added a top coat over the rhinestones, but this really dulled their appearance so next time I will definitely be skipping it and just applying them with nail glue...

El Corazon Express Effect N48
An electric purple with a strong violet shimmer. This is really bright and so beautiful! It is opaque in two coats, but I did add a third coat to deepen the color. Application is very nice and the amount of brushstrokes are minimal. Swatches are with no top coat...
