Henna tattoo inspired

This mani is inspired by @badgirlnails. More by what inspired her, but when I saw it, I knew I wanted to do henna nails too.
I used BP-L014 for the image and Sorbet Chic me Baby for the stamping. I laid down a coat of Essence Absolute Pure (clear polish) on my miracle mat and made decals with the images as it was quite a big image I was using. And knowing me it wouldn't end up where I wanted it.
I painted two coats of Tip Top Bare with Me on all my nails and by that time my decals were dry. I was such a chop and didn't take pictures of the decals on my mat, but anyway. I cut them in half and randomly placed them on my nails. I used a full decal for my ring finger. My stamping was a bit patchy here and there, but overall not bad.
I top coated everything and then used Essence matt about you. I wanted to add some glitter highlights, but decided against it (I was lazy). What do you think? Is it missing something? BF and my male colleague knew it was tattoos, but the ladies didn't. Go figure.

By next week I should have some more Jungle Pop swatches. Glamore Cosmetics managed to get the rest of the collection and they are beauties!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Gorgeous!!! I'm so going to try and recreate this or at least try stamping with dark brown over peach :)
