Here's another post for the Mish Mash Nail Challenge. The last one I did was quite a while ago, but I am back in the saddle.
This week's theme is nail stamping. Stamping is actually one of the first nail art techniques I learned. It's simple and can create some stunning results. Sadly, the evil nail monster seems to have stolen my nail polish remover. I couldn't find it anywhere last night, making it impossible to clean the plate between stamps. Because of this, my stamps aren't as clear as I'd like. Despite that, I love the look!
My base color is Revlon Fashionista. (If you're a teal fan like me, take a look at my comparison with Essie Go Overboard HERE.) Fashionista has an easy formula and great coverage in two thin coats.
Then I applied a coat of NYX Girls 161. I'm not sure why, but my bottle has no other name. (EDIT: It's called Maven! Thanks, Simona!) It's a slightly tinted blue base with pretty blue green glitters. I stamped with Bundle Monster 79 and Finger Paints Black Expressionism.
There you have it! This manicure is very mermaid-esque in my eyes. I like that, though! It makes the cold weather a bit more fun!
