Squishy stampin (O.P.I Color Paints #2)

I think I saw this technique in Instagram, from Sveta Sanders‘ page. And I fell in love, no saran wrap (I almost misspelled that at “satan”, which isn’t actually that far..), no sponge dabbing (tried to do some galaxies a while ago.. There’s a reason I didn’t publish those), just few polishes and a stamper. Yay!

I picked out pink and purple from Color Paints set, but it has no blue, so I went with some bling with them and chose Llarowe Colors Good Fortune.

Base I polished with Essie Blanc, so that CP-colors would show. Dropped some spots on my stamper randomly and just dab dab dab on the nail it goes!

The EASIEST way to get this smoky/galaxy/watercolory look on your nails!

I did these on Valentines Day, so of course they needed some love on them 🙂

I picked out my Born Pretty Store plate and , stamped the designs on with MdU White and All you need is a bit of love 😉 And I still don’t get along with my Clear Jelly Stamper. Geez.

Just a quickie post, before I need to go to work. And this is why we celebrated our Halloween already on Wednesday 🙂 Ofc we also had a Jack o’ Lantern carved, but I still don’t have a proper pic out of it, so here’s our orange-chocolate-cake:

My nails are Hallocute, not hallocreepy this year. I wanted to try out this “round gradient” (or whatthahell it is?) where the middle is lighter.

I picked out Essie Fear & Desire and O.P.I I just can’t Cope-Acabana and a sponge and made my base on top of one layer of Essie Blanc.

Then I scratched my head for a while, I’ve lost my graveyard stencils btw, and went through my stamping plates.

I actually love the result! Happy Hallows eve everybody!

Nude chicks.

I’m going to regret that headline in a few days, when checking out the sources leading to my blog. And I know there are going to be few disappointed guys on the other end of the internet, ha!

I felt like something semi-nude, because I managed to break down three out of five nails from my right hand. Yay. But nude, white, tasteless, scentless.. You know the drill, didn’t feel like that this time.

Base is Essie Ballet Slippers, which I decided to decorate with Mundo de Uñas Reddish.
Had a bit of a trouble deciding what image to use, but I ended with birds from Born Pretty Store BP-71.

After that my nails still looked a bit boring and Christmas-sy, so what next? Another round through my plates and I liked the big birds from Born Pretty Store BP-75.
Both birds to go with few misplaced feathers, stamped in MdU Black and ta-dah!

Usually less is more, but sometimes more is better. I actually like these, reminds me of lingonberries, birds and autumn. Nude base calms the restless overall, and black silhouettes stand out from the busy background.

I need to remember that base image on Christmas.
