Fire Through Glass

Continuing my Halloween theme, today we have fire, and fire through a stained glass window!

This was my first attempt at making my own nail decal. I stamped the design on my two middle fingers onto the stamper, hand-painted in each “window” shard, added two thick layers of top coat, and used it as a sticker!

In the future (and to any of you lovely ladies who want to try this) I recommend doing only ONE coat of top coat. Two was too thick, and as you can see one of my decals snapped when I tried to bend it to my finger. Both were too thick to really look great. I do so love the fiery gradient on my other nails though!

Colors

  • Red: Pure Ice – Siren

Despite using a color changing polish, there was very little color change on my nails. Maybe I used too much topcoat?

  1. So you stamped the design on the stamper and then painted inside the windows while it was still on the stamper?

    • yup. waited for the black polish to dry on the stamper, then painted in the window colors and waited for them to dry, then painted on top coat. After that, it was REALLY easy to peel the polish off the stamper after it dried!

  2. Love them!
    I had the same idea when I saw a similar geometric image in my plate 🙂 Stained glass windows!

  3. That’s such a good idea! And it looks awesome!

  4. Wow! This is stellar!

  5. looks cool! I love the colors you picked 🙂

  7. This looks gorgeous! I love the gradient and your stamping decal looks great (I can’t tell that it’s broken at all!)
