Arabian Nights Gradient and Sillhouettes

This week I won something for the first time EVER! I won 3 stamping plates from Messy Mansion with their Facebook giveaway! I chose 3 plates that I wanted for my prize, which are yet to be delivered, but while I was looking through their designs to choose I spotted an Arabian themed plate which they will be releasing at the end of September. It is really beautiful and I was bummed that I couldn't order it as part of my prize (not that I'm complaining I have 3 gorgeous plates on the way anyway!) but seeing the Arabian plate inspired me to do an Arabian Nights theme mani. I could have waited until the end of September to get the plate and do the mani, but I don't have that much patience! Once I get an idea I have to go with it!

Let me tell you, I am soooo glad I have no patience and just decided to go for it, because I am IN LOVE with what I came up with. As far as I'm concerned it's a masterpiece and possibly the most beautiful mani I have ever done!

To do the gradient I used BYS neons, ''Shimmer Golden Sands'' (yellow), Satin shade 5 (dark pink) and Sinful Colours ''Daddy's Girl'' (purple) and I am super happy wth the choice of colours, I think they look stunning together in this gradient. I painted the sillhoutte of the building, palm tree, camel and pyramid using nail art brushes with a black creme by Sally Hansen, and then painted the moon and dotted the stars with a very fine brush.

I honestly think this is one of the most beautiful mani's I have ever done, and it is going to be soooo hard when the time comes to remove it, I think I might actually cry a bit! I'm also slightly concerned as I might have outdone myself and may never be able to produce something more beautiful than this again, infact, everything I do from this point on is probably going to look like crap in comparison! Have any of you ever created a mani that made you feel the same way?!


  1. Wow.....the gradient is so nice and the design........ loved it, its so neat...... :)

  2. I agree! One of the most beautiful mani's I've seen! EVER!

  3. That is a wonderful mani! I often feel like I don't want to remove a mani I really like, but it's much easier when you have good pictures to keep :D
