My posting has been a little erratic over the last few days - apologies for that. I've been swatching like a fiend, so I haven't had as much time for nail art. Something amazing happened yesterday though - I finally swatched the last of my Sally Hansens! All 58 of them (yikes!) have now been at least tried on. There's been a big group of them in the untried pile forever, but I finally knuckled down and tried them all on. It's a very small achievement, in fact it's not really an achievement at all, but I'm still happy about it.
On to today's nails. Do you ever get an idea for nail art, and get that brief moment of 'have I created something new here?'. A quick Google revealed that no, I haven't. Again.
I recently bought some of the jellies from the OPI New York City Ballet collection, so I've been testing them out with some jelly sandwiches. For some reason I thought to myself, 'what if I did a jelly sandwich, but with stamping?'. It seemed like an amazing, epic idea, so I went with it!
I wish I had gone with a different colour stamping polish, but this was essentially a test to see if the technique would work, and my Konad black was within arm's reach!
So this is 2 coats of OPI My Pointe Exactly, stamping with BM316 and Konad Black, then 2 more coats of MPE. I think it's a really interesting look, and I can't wait to try it with a nude jelly and white stamping for work! Then maybe some brighter colours with gold or silver? Luckily I'm building up a small collection of jellies (I love 'em!), so expect to see a lot more of these!
