I was lucky enough to get a new Victoria's Secret Swimsuit (in zither Blue Paisley print) and I loved the pattern so much I wanted to try to replicate it for the challenge.
Using Bundle Monster Plate BM-315, the paisley print image, I stamped Barielle's Tres Chic onto my stamper and let it dry. Tres Chic is a very dark navy blue with a touch of purple to it. It's a cream and very opaque.
I filled in parts of the image using my smallest dotting tool with Barielle's Peach Popsicle which is peachy coral cream and Illamasqua's Cameo which is a periwinkle blue cream. I then allowed this plenty of time to dry on the stamper.
I painted my nail stick with one coat of China Glaze, White On White. Once it was completely dry I added a top coat and let it dry enough so that the surface was tacky but it was still pretty set. If it's too wet, the polish will slide on the nail.
I then applied the stamper with the dried image to my tacky nail, nice and firm in order to transfer the image. I used a rolling motion as the video above demonstrates.
As you can see my attempt (and this was 2nd one) was not successful. So I am back to the drawing board to figure out the pattern I want to try next. Thankfully I have a little extra time to work on it now. ;)
