I had been waiting to try this colorful floral nails design with White and black water marble and El Corazon aquarelle tints. But none of my current white polishes work good for water marble. So I thought I would try my concept with Water marble nails designs looking stamping nail design. Whenever I buy new white nail color next, I will try my original idea with that later.
For this Colorful Floral nails I used following products:
– Various shades of El Corazon Aquarelle tints
– El Corazon Black and White Stamping polish
– Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White and Black base
– Stamping plate – M78 (from Born pretty store)
– Born pretty store XL stamper
– Seche Vite Quick dry top coat

I applied white nail color as base on Middle and ring finger and black nail color on First and last finger. Then I stamped water marble floral nail design from plate M78, using reverse stamping colors on each finger. For the reverse facing stamping design I picked up design on stamper, transferred the design from one stamper to another stamper then I stamped on nails.
I took few drops of different El corazon aquarelle tints on color pallet. Using a nail art brush, I filled in different colors onto stamped image. Following similar process as Stamping lead light technique. Since these tints are very sheer and light shades, I repeated 2-3 coats of filling to achieve desired colors. Sealed everything with Seche Vite fast dry top coat.
The final mani was too glossy and I wanted to avoid highlight in pictures so that I can show all different colors well. So I took shot in shade. Which makes this image look flat, otherwise the design looks more prettier in person.
I loved this black and white version very much. But I was wondering, how it would have looked if I filled tint colors on full nail?! So, before I was gonna remove this mani, I thought I would try one more version. Here is my trial after filling up white area with Yellow and purple tint. (Click on image for larger view)
Please excuse me for my application was not very smooth in hurry for this trial, because I never thought I will be sharing it. But I liked this colorful version as well, so thought of sharing.
What do you think? Which version you liked better? Black and White or Yellow and Black?
