Nail art instead of swatches tonight. But I'll be back to swatches tomorrow.
I've been playing around a bit more with the reverse stamping technique where you:
- stamp onto plastic,
- colour it in with polish,
- apply top coat,
- let it dry,
- peel it off and
- then apply it on top of some tacky polish on your nail.
I stamped with Winstonia plate W111 in black. I used my custom Paws polish clover green and added white to get the four shades. I just mixed the colours on a palette and used a nail art brush to fill in the stamp I did a gradient using the same Paws clover green and white and applied Penelope Luz Dark Angel black glitter over the top. I loved how the whole design came together.
Did you notice that I totally cheated on my right hand and just stamped the black directly onto the green polish. It just doesn't have the same depth or interest does it!
