Hello! It's that time of the month again, in which the bloggers that are in my Paint All the Nails group come together and link up with nail art. Previous posts can be found under this tag. The theme for this month is Pastel Geometric.
Ever since I reviewed Paint Box Polish's Ciao, Gelato! Collection, I have had them sitting on my desk, waiting to be used in a nail art design and I thought they would be perfect to use for this prompt. Initially I thought of possibly doing stamped decals but I haven't had luck yet with that technique so I went another route and did this stamped marble instead. If you need a tutorial of how to do that, Emily of Very Emily has an awesome video of this in her Bundle Monster Mochi Stamper review.
I started out with a blank white base, using Pretty Serious Absence. Then I applied about four strips of striping tape randomly crossed on my nail. Once that was done, I took a stamper and dabbed blobs of polish and then pressed the stamper onto my nail. The colors I used are Paint Box Polish Ananas, Fragola, Fruit de Bosco, Melone, Pistacchio, and Puffo.
I really like the final result. The colors have a muted watercolor effect and the white lines are a nice soft contrast. I did have a bit of bubbling, which annoys me to no end but otherwise, this was an easy technique, if a little time consuming.
