Rainbow Candy Cane Nails with BM-301
A rainbow candy cane, that's what this mani reminds me of.. just perfect for a sweet tooth like me! The base colour I used is OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls and the design is from Bundle Monster plate BM-301. I wanted a gradient look for the stamped lines, below you can find a little how-to.
gradient stamping how-to
1. Pick two colours and paint two stripes on the image. Leave some space between the stripes.
2. Swirl the colours together with a toothpick.
3. Grab a scraper and scrape the excess polish off. 
4. Place the stamp on the design, check if it transferred well and roll it over the nail. Work fast or the polish will turn too dry to stamp with. Some parts of the design are missing on my stamp because I had to take pictures. ^_^

Thanks for watching!
