    Hi there. How are you today? Did you have a fun 4th of July? I can't believe it's July already. I feel like this year is flying by. 

    I came across this amazing mani that looked like the stone, turquoise, and I had to try to accomplish it myself. The original mani that inspired me was done with a water spotting technique that for the life of me I couldn't get to work. I'll keep trying but in the end I found a stamp that I used to accomplish a very similar look.

    I am sooooo excited about how this turned out! I started with the Saran Wrap technique with three shades of turquoise to get the depth of color there then stamped over that. Free hand, I filled in some of the stamping with black and free hand again, I used a copper holo for accenting the black. It's so fun I can barely stand it! 😁

    There are lots of tutorials online about the Saran Wrap and water spotting techniques so feel free to browse and see if you like the way others have created manis with them. 

    I hope you have a relaxing Sunday...I'm going to paint some more in my house (wearing gloves of course as to not ruin my mani) and then relax too. Thank you for stopping by!
