White ink tattoo

I don't know why, but lately I've been a little obsessed with white ink tattoos.  I like how they are so very subtle and almost look like your skin is made of lace.  So I wanted to try to recreate that look on my nails.

This is two coats of Sally Hansen Without a Stitch stamped with white konad special polish and plate m73, which I thought looked most like an intricate filigree type pattern that a tattoo would have.  Without a Stitch can have a tendency to drag, so you will need to apply smooth coats and let them dry thoroughly in between.   I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and I think it has the sublte look I was striving for.

I also just got back from the beach where I saw a sand sculpting festival.  Here are a few pics!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. Pretty mani. Awesome sculpture pics.

  2. oh that mani is just gorgeous! I love it

  3. That's so gorgeous! I never would have thought to stamp white on light. The sand sculptures are just amazing.

  4. Will have to try a mani like this soon! I was just thinking about breaking out my stamping plates again too!

  5. The white tattoo is indeed an intriguing look! Beautiful nails and I enjoyed the sand sculptures very much too!

  6. Ahhh this is soo pretty and refreshing. This looks like it could be a bridal mani!
