Aqua pebble stones

I love finding new plate designs that work well with advanced stamping or stamping decals. With my recent rediscovery of my FUN plates I found this beauty on FUN #6.  It looks like a little pebble stones.  I didn't have the patience to colour in every single little stone in the design, but I really love how it turned out with just a sprinkling of colour.

I used Face of Australia Mystique (the darkest teal shade) and Picture Polish Marine, Chillax and Tiffany for each shade getting lighter.  The gradient used the same polishes over a white base.  Lastly I added some SS9 sized Swarovski crystals on the tips of the gradients.

This was the first full mani I did using the Messy Mansion 10 stamper head pro set.  For the finer lines in this stamp I found I did need to lightly prime my stampers using the included magic eraser from the set.  As you can see, the stamps picked up really beautifully.


  1. I absolutely love this! What a perfect gradient and your decal is awesome! Great job! <3

  2. Wow, this is gorgeous! I really like it! Really nice gradient and the little crystals are a nice touch.

  3. What a fun manicure! I really like it :-)

  4. I love this! It looks perfect with only some of them coloured in :)
