Turquoise Manicure Inspired by @stephstonenails

I have been ogling this look by @stephstonenails for AGES! Attempting and re-attempting it until I got it just right... or as close to right as I could :) 

This look has been recreated by other nail artists a few times, and even been featured on youtube in tutorials, but it seems some individuals had some trouble crediting the original artist. I first found this turquoise manicure in the July/August issue of Nail It Magazine. And the original artist is the amazingly talented Steph Stone herself! 

For my recreation I used Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter as my turquoise base, then stamped BM-417 using Mundo de Unas gold stamping polish...

For the black splatter I used the water spotted nail art tutorial by CutePolish using OPI Black Onyx.
And voila!

And below was the magazine feature I was initially inspired by...

Hope you love this look as much as I did! :)
