BL Stripey Socks

I know you were sad that yesterday I only showed you a little bit of BL Fiddlesticks.  So here's a swatch of it in all it's raspberry glittery goodness.




Like most BL, this has an amazing formula, and the glitter is opaque in 2 coats.  Even without topcoat, it was smooth, but a little matte.

I used tiny striping tape to create this effect with BL Scouse.  I got my inspiration from this look by Miss Ladyfinger.


Scouse needed two coats to be opaque, but with the tape, I couldn't wait for a layer to dry and then apply another layer, so I just put one very thick layer on.  You can actually see the difference in thickness in the pix above, but a thick topcoat like Seche Vite can help blend the layers together and create the illusion of one layer.



Makes me think of wild, stripey socks from the 80's.

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
