I have to do my exam this week so this weekend, between studying and growing more nervous by the hour, I thought it was a good idea to try water marbling for the letter M. Yeah, right... shaking hands, no patience and a new challenging technique, really great combo ;)
So after a few failed attempts at flooding my desk with polish and water I decided to go for something easier:
|indoors, no flash|
On all fingers but my ring finger are three coats of essie Mint Candy Apple. My ring finger was done in two coats and some dabbing of Zoya Vega. I finished by stamping a Moroccan design from Bundle Monster plate BM-XL205 on my middle finger using essie No Place Like Chrome, sticking two 3mm square studs on my index and pinky and covering everything but my ring finger with a generous coat of Seche Vite. And that was all :D
The usual line up:
|essie Mint Candy Apple, Zoya Vega, essie No Place Like Chrome|
I try to step out of my comfort zone for the ABC-Challenge as much as possible but in my current state I'm actually surprised I managed to do a proper stamp so I'm not going to push myself this time ;)
Disclaimer: I'm pretty sure I was inspired by one or more manicures I saw while browsing and reading blogs but I haven't used a specific one as example so similarities are not intended but of course mint and silver are a great combination so I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of it.
The other entries for the letter M in the ABC-Challenge are:
Zoya Vega was bought from Pretty Polish.
Square studs were bought from She Sells Seashells.
