Shattered Glass, 80's Style
Ready for today's stamping challenge? It's full of eye-searing neon goodness, with a dash of 'hey, that wasn't supposed to happen' and a smidge of 'black stamping for the win!'
I didn't know that China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely was a neon when I got it out. I like neons okay. They dry quickly, so you have to work quickly. And, they make me look like I got a tan.
Today's challenge is to do a 'Funky French' so I rifled through my tips plates.
I *rarely* use these. I don't have enough 'tip' for these to make much sense, usually. But I thought this tip from Mash 27 would look good even if it wasn't a whole stamp. I used China Glaze Cosmic Dust for the stamping.
In my mind, this was going to look like shattered pieces of glass, twinkling on the pink background. Instead, it's a lot of squinting to see if the stamp transferred.
So, I got out my Wet 'n Wild Black Creme and stamped it again, and then did a little more Cosmic Dust over that. Gone is the shattered glass effect; now there's an 80's vibe.

A lot of my nail art is made up of 'oops' and then, 'I totally meant to do that!'. No one can tell you that your art isn't right. Own it. And then, if you're still not happy, slap some glitter on it!
