Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer | Ikat Stamping

More overly simplistic adventures in stamping! Are you tired of me doing simple stamping in white? Well...too bad. I still love it. I think I am going through a phase. At least it is a pretty phase.

I used my MoYou clear jelly stamper thing (thank you to whomever gave me the tip about dishwashing soap!) for this manicure, and I swear I could not have done this well without it. I actually put effort forth into getting the designs straight on my nail, and being able to see what was going on was a life saver.

There is something delightfully peaceful and beachy about this manicure. Which, this time of year, is a bit...odd. But I dig it. How do you feel about off-season art? Do you get a hankering for red and green in the spring? Or how about a searing neon in December?

  1. I love this image! And I like stamping all in white too - I rarely do skittles...I feel like they need to match....but I'm trying to push myself outside that comfort. PS - the shimmah is killing me!!!

    I do my nail arts based on the weather rather than the seasons! Bad weather = dark colours!
