Tropical Stained Glass | Spring + Summer Manicure

Hey everyone! I’ve been working on my Cirque Colors facets collection and I just had four more come in yesterday. Their facets polishes are jellies with tiny holographic flakes, making them perfect for a sparkly stained glass mani. So, to celebrate I did a tropical-themed stained glass mani with all but one of my shades! I can’t wait until I can collect them all!

  1. For this manicure, I started by applying my favourite base coat, Orly Bonder, to all of my nails.
  2. For the stained glass nails I started with a white creme base (Maniology Bam! White Stamping Polish)  to really make the facets shades pop when they are placed on top. For my other nails I just used a black creme (Maniology Straight Up Black Stamping Polish), since I didn’t want to distract away from the stained glass nails.
  3. I used the Lina Nail Art Supplies Stained Glasstic! 01 Stamping plate for all of the designs. I chose two bird designs, one with parrots and another with a toucan, and one leaf design. This plate has a ton of different kinds of stained glass designs, it is very cool. To pick up the designs I used a black stamping polish (Maniology Straight Up Black Stamping Polish) and the What’s Up Nails Jumbo Clear Stamper.
  4. I then filled in all the designs with a variety of Cirque Colors facets polishes (Ruby, Citrine, Peridot, Emerald, Paraiba, Zircon, Dioptase), plus the same white and black stamping polishes, and a brown stamping polish (Maniology Annato Clay Stamping Polish). I used the UberChic Beauty Detail Nail Art Brush.
  5. After ensuring the designs were dry to the touch, I applied the Maniology Sticky Base Coat coat to my nails, a liquid latex around my cuticles (Edge Perfection Easy Peel Polish Barrier), and I applied the dried designs onto the nails.
  6. I finished off the mani by applying the Maniology No Smudge Nail Polish Top Coat (Use code SUPERNOVA10 to save 10% off Maniology purchases (affiliate)), followed by my regular glossy top coat (Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat).

Are you now in love with the facets polishes as much as I am?? There is something so special about them!
