Happy Friday! I hope you have a fun-filled weekend ahead of you! Those of you who will be seeing The Hunger Games...you're in for a TREAT! I saw it at midnight and it was absolutely incredible =]! Today, I think I have a brand new technique to show you. I was literally sitting at my desk, staring at a piece of paper when it hit me like a truck..."I wonder how it would look if I used crumpled paper to stamp with?" I gave it a shot and WOW, the outcome is really cool!
Basically, I painted my nails with Wet N Wild Black Creme, and then I crumpled three nickel-sized pieces of paper (one for each color) so that there were no perfectly flat sides. To do that, I wrapped all the edges into the middle until the paper was in a misshapen ball. Then, I dabbed a fairly generous amount of polish on the paper ball and gently applied the colors (Bettina Aqua, Essence Mellow Yellow, and Zoya Dita) by repeatedly dotting them on my nail one at a time until I achieved the desired look. To make sure that the pattern was different on each nail, I kept rotating the stamping surface of the paper ball after each stamp. I think it looks sort of like bright watercolor meets splatter nails...if that doesn't make sense, just take a look below...you'll see what I mean =]!
Have a great weekend =]!
