Today’s prompt was “artwork.” I spent a long time thinking about famous art I could re-create…but nothing struck me. I decided to look through my stamping plates, and realized that the 2014 Create Your Own Bundle Monster set had a whole nerdy plate with comic-book-like patterns! And comic books are totally art…
This mani had really high hopes and fell just a tiny bit short. I started with a nude base. I meant to stamp my patterns in red, but I already had my black stamping polish out and I COMPLETELY FORGOT and just grabbed the black! So then I had black-on-nude which is boring. So, I just went for it and stamped the red OVER the black and it looked awesome! But comic books have yellow and blue and all these other colors too, so I grabbed a yellow and added some random dots. So far so good.
However, these are on my right hand. It was time to add the words within the exploding bubbles on my pinky, middle, and pointer fingers…but I am not good at tiny words at the best of times, and this was NOT the best of times. So I tried to write POW, BAM, and ZAP on my nails. It mostly didn’t work.
~ Nude: Zoya – Chantal
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Red: OPI – All I Want For Christmas (is OPI)
~ Yellow: WOW – #301
~ Stamp: Bundle Monster – 601
Despite that, I like the idea of these nails so I’m posting them anyway! So, comic book nails. And double stamping which totally worked. Enjoy!
