Darlin' it's better, down where it's wetter...

Hi!

This week's Adventures in Stamping theme was Under the Sea, and so I share with you the earworm that has been plaguing me all day. You're welcome. This mani was actually pretty complicated, combining several techniques and finishes to create what I think was mediocre at best. Don;t get me wrong, I like it, but it's not my favourite. I muddled together a watermarble accent nail, saran/cling wrap, glitter, stamping and shimmer topcoat for these schools of fishes from MoYou London Sailor 04 plate (double stamped again, can you tell? Pretty pleased with myself!) My colours were Barry M Greenberry and Nails Inc Baker Street (in the water marble and saran wrap under the stamping), Claires Accessories Shiver (glitter under the stamping which isn't very visible, but it's a lovely polish so I'll be using it again soon!) and then stamped with Konad White. I then added Collection Sparkle Top Coat over the whole thing because I wanted it to shimmer.






I think that for all it's layers and complexities, the fishies have good depth to them. I just wish my watermarble wasn't so wonky and the glitter showed up better! Onwards and upwards!

I want to order some more MoYou plates, and I'm torn between normal or XL images. You get more images on the normal plates, but obviously they are no longer big enough. I can double stamp, but not having to is much less hassle! What would you do?
