Sunday Stamping Mani: Under The Sea

12:34 PM

It's time for another Sunday Stamping manicure!  This week's challenge was: Under the Sea.  I don't know about you, but all I can think of when I hear those words are The Little Mermaid.  I loved that movie so much. In fact when I was a child I watched the VHS so many times my mother had to buy a replacement. That said, as much as I love The Little Mermaid, I don't love the idea of her on my nails.  I like to do things that are a bit more abstract.  Things that, while you can see the inspiration in, aren't so straightforward as: This is the ocean on my nails.  So I perused the web a bit and found this picture:

I love the colors of this. The coral against the white and the clean bright blue background.  I was all set to do this mani until I remembered the most important part of the challenge: you have to use a stamp.  So I put my brushes away and set out looking through all my stamps to see what I could use to recreate this.  As luck would have it, I actually DO have a stamp that's similar to this: BM-225.  I used Models Own Feelin' Blue for the bright background and then stamped Konad White polish on.  Last I used a dotting tool to dab on Barry M Coral on the tips.  I liked the final result a lot.  It looks a lot like the picture, but it also just looks like a cool pattern on my nails! 

What do you guys think? 

Enjoy and thanks for following!!
