#31DC2015 026 // Inspired by a Pattern

by - 9/30/2015

This is another one of those wide open sort of prompts. If I would've had the time and a little more fortutiude, I might have attempted a freehanded plaid. But. It was not that kind of day. Instead, I went for stamping a PATTERN I hadn't used before...

Blue & Coral Nails

Pattern Nails

Coral & Blue Nails

Pattern Nails

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Soul Mate
Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate M98
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
1 Coat Seche Vite

When I took off my negative space nails, I thought about using the same base for my PATTERN nails. I decided that I was in the mood for something a little bit more pink, so I chose Soul Mate from SinfulColors. It's a great mid-toned coral leaning rose pink, a gorgeous shade on any skin tone!

I resisted the urge to use gold for this stamping and chose Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. It did so well in my Water Marble that I figured it would stamp well, too. No complaints at all, but there was definitely a little bit of user error while rolling the stamper. Some patterns show that more than others, and with this one, it's really noticeable! I could definitely use a little more practice, and probably an upgrade in plates and stampers! I've been eyeing up the Secret Garden collection from Bundlemonster for a while, now!

But for now? I'll just stick to finishing the rest of the challenge...
