Sunday Stamping - Something Nerdy!
I have such an affinity for the nerds and geeks of this world. I married one of them! So, when I was thinking about my mani for this week, I knew I wanted to start with a polish I absolutely loved and had waited and waited to get: Illamasqua Raindrops.
Speaking of nerdy, I also bought an Ott light tonight, and am experimenting with it. The first pix is in the evening, only overhead lightbulb, the way I usually take my pix. The second one is with the Ott light. It maybe reflected a little too much on the flakies, and makes it look textured, or rippled. It's neither, really. It is a beautiful grey/blue jelly with white flakies. Love.
What I find so adorably nerdy these days is the 'Bronie' phenomenon from My Little Pony. So I made my own version with rainbows and unicorns and ponies.
The stamps are from Mash 39 and 40, and I used Barry M Gelly in Blackberry. I tried the Prickly Pear, but it didn't work with this color. I ended up mixing it inadvertently with the Blackberry on the stamp I used on my thumb. Marbled Bronie!
Are you a fan of nerd/geekdom? Do you consider yourself a member? What polish would you celebrate your nerdiness with?
