Garden nail art using stamping decal technique

Hello friends! This week has been real busy, too many things to catch up at work and home. As you all know I have been actively participating in 'Nailthattechnique' challenge and this week's theme is stamping decal. I was looking forward for this week's challenge as I have always struggled placing the stamping decal; some of my previous attempts of making decals are here and here.

This is my attempt for the challenge. I used my long pending unused Moyou London Mother Collection 01 plate for the decals. I am really happy with my attempt this time although I found placing the decal and clean up process a bit challenging. The dents and bumps are clearly visible.
Despite this, I feel confident and I am sure if I try this technique a few times the final result would be nice and smooth.

Syrup Gradient nails with stamping

Hello Friends! One of the themes for Nail that technique challenge was Syrup gradient. I tried this technique on practice wheels and failed miserably. I was not confident about this technique and kept looking for tutorials. Dimpal from Crazypolishes made a video tutorial - on how to do syrup gradients.

For this design, I started with white base and used Colorbar Neon Pina Colada and DIY Blue sheer tint for the gradient. I used the first technique from the video that is used brush from tip towards the middle of nail.
