Under The Blue Blue Sea

August 04, 2013

I decided to spice up my blue nails from the previous post with a cute and fun design, so I reached for one of the new Born Pretty Store stamping plates and created this fish skeleton mani.

For the base I applied two coats of GA-DE Melody Blue, then I stamped the cute fish skeleton images from QA62 stamping plate using Essie No Place Like Chrome as the stamping polish. 
The QA62 stamping plate has some really cute designs on it like fish and fish skeletons, penguins and cute water drops with faces. These are quite funny designs with a bit of humor, so I really liked them.

The designs on this plate are a bit small, but as you can see I managed to stamp the full nail design with a single application, but if you have longer nails than mine, you can use these patterns easily twice on your nails without having weird patchy look.
For the thumb I used the large skeletons and stamped a few of them to create this pattern, but of course you can stamp a single image if you like.

For the ring finger I applied one coat of Essie Stroke Of Brilliance over the blue base, to add a bit of sparkle to the design. It also reminded me of water bubbles, but this is kinda cynical since these are fish skeletons. ;) 
To seal the design I applied one coat of Poshe.
So this is my fun and easy designs. I hope you like it and find inspiration in it.
Thanks for reading!

  7. I have that plate! I got it for a friend since she didn't want to place an entire order for one plate and I was ordering anyway. But since she lives a couple of hours away we don't see each other that frequently. Maybe I'll steal a few uses before I give it to her :)
