And I’m back, not even 12 hours later! I wanted to get this post up in time for the launch tonight because this set is totally perfect for nail art! Jill from Glisten & Glow totally did an amazing job with these because they stamp AND marble and are the perfect set of cremes. I’m not going to go into the formulas for these in this post since I reviewed them in my last post from earlier this morning/late last night.
These babies totally marble like a dream, y’all! Now, the white that you see on my index and ring finger, that’s totally my bad. I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White as the outside ring just to spread the polish easier without using my beloved cremes, and I managed to dip my finger back into that area after the initial design. I still like how it looks, though! So whimsical, no?
I also decided to add some of Fun to be Done over the top and then matted it. FOR SCIENCE.
Oh. And then stamping. Man. I was so jazzed to do these. Some turned out okay, others… well. Both attempts and mistakes were made.
98 and 3/4 Percent Guaranteed stamps like a dream and looks absolutely fabulous over Today is Your Day. The plate I used was the Bundle Monster x Sloteazzy BM-XL210 and then used G&G’s matte TC over the top.
I used that same plate again here, and used the full collection. My photos weren’t amazing, so I only saved this one, but it’s another whimsical look that I really enjoyed.
OH LOOK IT’S THAT BUNDLE MONSTER PLATE AGAIN. I’M NOT OBSESSED. YOU ARE. Heh. It’s also almost a fail. I need to wash my stampers, I think I used them a bit too much with this collection and got some oils on there to cause images to go seven kinds of potato. It’s still pretty, from a distance. Maybe.
ANNNND now for the fail. I don’t even know where I went so wrong. The images looked crisp and straight on the stamper, but my nails somehow managed to wonkify them into this mess. I can’t even fault y’all for judging me on this one. I’m still judging myself two weeks later. I mean, shit. Even the design wanted to run away while I was top coating it. I don’t blame it. At. All.
BUT HEY LOOK! This is me attempting to art more and totally getting out of my comfort zone! I really like that makers are asking for art with the press samples as it forces me to get creative when I otherwise wouldn’t. Kinda neat, huh?
