This mani was…um…a pain in the butt. It has been a while since I water marbled, and I thought it was time to do so again! Which went great…until I tried to dip my pointer and pinky in at the same time (you know, to save polish) and I double dipped. Both of them. Because I couldn’t clean around them without taking them out of the water.
So, in the wake of my somewhat failed water marble (did I mention that I used a black shimmer that decidedly turned see-through? That is why there is so much golden-pink. That was all supposed to be black shimmer), I decided to say forget it, and stamp over it. Using something interesting enough that you can’t tell I messed up 2/5 nails 😀
Enter the Born Pretty Store stamping plate 21. I have had this plate for MONTHS and never used it (because I’m silly sometimes) but (a) it stamps great and (b) all the designs are full-nail and high-coverage. Yay!
