Sunday Stamping Stardust Polish!
Today's challenge is 'Better Than Jamberry.' I interpreted it as a pattern I liked better than using a nail wrap, but apparently I was supposed to pattern it after an actual nail wrap. Oops. Well, I like how it came out anyway.
I started with Stardust Polish Fireball, a hot pink that looks kinda metallic, kinda shimmery, kinda holo.
I did a gradient with two other Stardust Polishes I picked up, Big Bang Fury, a sheer red metallic, and Infrared Apex, a plum metallic holo.
I have this plate that just has a letter 'B' on it - no other identifiers that I can see. I couldn't tell you where it came from, but I liked this stamp - it reminds me of the film negatives - like the beginning of the movie theater previews when you 'ride' the film strip rollercoaster through all the concessions.
Just me? ok.
I used Essie Nothing Else Metals, a lilac metallic, to stamp the design. I wish it hadn't blocked out so much of the gradient! #smallnailbedproblems
Better than any ol' nail wrap, in my humble opinion.
I've seen people mistake lots of cool, handmade nail art for a nail wrap. Would you rather wear a nail wrap, nail art, or both or neither?
