Sunday Stamping - Everything's Coming Up Roses..
Today's stamping challenge was our favorite flower. My fave flower is the yellow rose, preferably with a bit of orange in it. I even got a tattoo of one for my 40th birthday.
This mani is nowhere near as permanent.. and nowhere near as good, either. I tried something new, and uh, well.. I had some technical difficulties.
It started off well enough, with Aly's Dream Polish Prussian Purple. I love this holo. It's light purple, but not lavender. It's not pastel, exactly, just lighter.
I used this DRK-A plate, and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for the stamp.
On my last trip to Walgreens, they had all the Sally Hansen Nail Art pens marked down on clearance, so I picked up a bunch of colors. I thought it might be fun to color in the stamp with them.
Yeah, not as easy as it sounds. So, squint your eyes and use your imagination, and they might look like yellow roses with green leaves. It's, um, impressionistic, right? I'm the next Monet.

I think I need some more practice with these pens! They don't work like polish - it's more runny, almost like a watercolor. I like being able to be more precise with the placement, I just need to work on technique. Have you used these pens for nail art? What do you think?
