Antique tea set

The prompt for #clairestelle8may nail art challenge, calls for Antique.
Since I've done a few aged look mani's lately, I decided to go for a china pattern tea set. 

This was another one that seemed frustrating and to take forever 🙄 Two in a row 😩 I'm going to do a super simple one tomorrow! 

I really wanted to stamp the teapot & cup with the china pattern, and leave the rest of the nail white. But it just wasn't working. So in the end I went with stamping the same pattern in a lighter blue, and placing the set over it. Because the image was so large, I had to split it. 
Because I wasn't really loving it, I tried another option. Sadly I don't really love this one either 😕 
The tea set is too hard to see, and after shrinking it down, it's kind of hard to tell what it is. Anyway, you get the idea. 

The floral pattern is from MJ XXXI and the tea service from Moyra 14 Moments. The white base is Orly White Tips, stamping polish is MDU Iris and Pastel Blue. 


  1. I LOVE this mani, am drooling all over the keyboard *frantically wiping it* :D

    1. Thank you Maria. I too am a sucker for this China pattern, that blue and white are just so striking together!
