Pastel Wrapped

Sometimes, something sounds great in theory and is a total flop in practice. I wanted to do a pastel water marble, and ended up with something so subtle that even I could barely see it, and I knew it was there!

To escape the fate of having almost-white nails, I grabbed a geometric stamp that I hadn’t used before for fear of messed up lines (clear stampers really have made everything better) and added some thick black designs over my marble.

In retrospect, I don’t remember why I wanted the stripe pattern for each nail to be different. Luckily my nails were short enough that I could get away with rotating the stamp, and it did come out looking alright! But…I have a clear stamper. I could have made them all identical. I don’t quite know what past-me was thinking!
