Blue mosaic tile nails

Today I am featuring another manicure using water slide decals from Born Pretty Store. These were sent to me for review and since I don’t wear blue often, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with them, so they got put off for a while.

Advanced stamping is one of those techniques that I have been in awe of for years, but for multiple reasons I had not managed to conquer it.
