Oh spooky! Attempt #2 with the stamping plate.... and upside-down...again! I should really start remembering these tips I try to leave myself!


For this design I used a latex free makeup sponge, ejiubas stamping plate, and the following polish:

Metallic Blue: Color Club "Polar Vortex"

Light blue: Color Club "Route 66"

Denim Blue: Urban Outfitters

Grey: OPI "Haven't the Foggiest"

and, of course, my current favorite quick dry top coat by Seche Vite.


First, I did a gradient for the night sky. I painted Color Club "Route 66", Urban Outfitters denim blue, then Color Club "Polar Vortex". (REMEMBER: a number of thin coats is better than a few thick coats) After the gradient was opaque enough, I added the stamping plate. This time was a little better than last. I was able figure out how to stamping cleaner to get the full image. It was a little harder because I hard to try to make sure the ground in the image was actually at the bottom of my nail (even though its upside-down). Once the image was how I liked it a stamped it on my nail. Finally, a layer of quick dry top coat to top it Toff.


Tell me what you think!
