Saran Wrap
  • More Festival

    Hi! So... I haven't posted this often in a very long time! Something about the new Bundle Monster Festival Collection of stamping plates has me on a roll with ideas so I hope you don't mind seeing them all! 😄

    I started this mani with the saranwrap technique using three Cirque Colors. As I mentioned in my last post after using Poli-Peel for the first time I thought I'd try applying it once per technique. So I did that with this mani and it worked super well!  It was a very easy clean up after this step!

    Then...I had to stamp! I used another Festval image in black over the base design. I chose one that lets through the base so it could all work together. I used my new clear stamper to get the designs as straight as I could.

    I hope you like this one! It was hard to take off the ombre arrows from the other day but I was just too excited to paint more of my ideas.

    I hope you have a great evening and a good Tuesday ahead!

  • Silver Poinsettias

    Hello there...how are you this evening? I'm doing pretty well. I've decorated my house for my first Christmas in it, which I love! Here's my tree! 🎄

    And of course I still make time for nail art! Here's one I'm very happy with! I'm excited about how the detail came out so clear. I'm not entirely sure if this image was meant to be a specific flower but it looks a lot like little poinsettias to me. 

    I enjoy Christmas manis and I tend to try and create some that aren't so obviously festive. A little covert, perhaps... What do you think? Does this pass as a version of a holiday mani?

    Thank you for stopping by! Blessings to you...

  • Turquoise

    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!
