Today's prompt for the 31-Day Challenge has us revisiting our archives to recreate a look we've already done. I had a hard time deciding between remastering a look I flopped the first time around or revamping a look that I got right, and ultimately decided that I had to recreate one that had a request for a tutorial which I never got around to. I still haven't done the tutorial, mind you, but at least I'm dusting off the original look for another go.
Here's the original gradient dragonfly stamping look that I did back in January of last year.
And here's the updated version:
I changed a lot of things about this look while staying true to the original, but one piece stayed very much the same - the base polish is the beautiful Vampire's Kiss from Belle Glamour. I fell in love with this polish when I swatched it, and when Cat closed down her store, she sent me a full-sized bottle as a thank-you gift, which I've cherished but haven't worn much because I know that once it's gone, it's gone for good!
To recreate this mani, I started with two coats of Vampire's Kiss. Once dry, I sponged on a gradient adding ILNP Birefringence and Sirene to add the blue and the green tones to the purple. I stamped on the dragonflies this time from VL-014 in Essie Penny Talk and topped with SV. While my top coat was still wet, I added the Swarovski 3SS AB crystals to the larger dragonfly heads and the large silver dragonfly nail charm.

Be safe and be well, and I'll see you tomorrow!
