You may or may not have noticed that I went on hiatus for the summer. Sorry about the lack of notice – it wasn’t something I had planned on, but between my daughter being home for summer break and adopting a new puppy to house train, play with and cuddle, I decided to put my nails on the back burner.
I’m not ready to let go of Fall yet. It is my favorite time of the year and fall colors generally fall into my spectrum of favorites. It should come as no surprise that when I was getting ready to do my nails, I automatically reached for a dark brown color.
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. My main problem was that I was trying to place dried decals on my nails and could never get them to lay down nicely because my nails curve quite a bit from side-to-side as well as front-to-back. I finally found the way to do it that works best for me and I am super pleased with the results!
I’ve been doing a lot of swatches lately, but have neglected to do posts about nail art and I really want to get back to that. Today’s mani was done for my Mommy’s Mani Monday group for the prompt: Favorite Technique.
A day late on this one, but still chugging onward with this challenge. For this challenge I made water marble decals, which is definitely a new-to-me technique. This was also my first opportunity to use one of my new Color Club top coats from their gorgeous Made in New York line. I’ll be doing a separate swatch entry for the two toppers I have soon, but I simply couldn’t resist using it any longer!
