Sunday Stamping: Inspired by a Fairy Tale

Standard

051213-01

It’s Sunday, so that means it’s challenge day at Adventures in Stamping. This week’s challenge was “Inspired by your favorite fairy tale.” Well, I don’t really have a favorite fairy tale, so I went down the list of my favorite Disney movies until I came across one I liked that I could work with given my limited stamping supplies.

Black & White Challenge Day 9: Water Marble

Standard

IMAG0406

Right hand action today because I hadn’t had time to do my left hand.

For today I had to do water marbling. I did a bit of a different technique this time, and it worked out really well.

I started with two coats of Wet N Wild French White Crème, then one coat of my Try it on Tuesday polish, Piggy Polish Frosty, which is a sheer shimmery white for some shine. I wanted to use Frosty on its own, but it’s much too sheer for that.

I then marbled with Shades of the Season Black and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Invisible, with a 3:1 ratio of black to clear. I marbled with black and clear instead of black and white because that way I didn’t have to worry about the black going gray when marbled with the white.

Tomorrow is stripes from the Abstract Challenge, and then Thursday is the last Black and White Challenge post, a mani of my choice.

Stash Sunday: Blacks and Whites

Standard

I figured that since today is the first day of the Black & White Challenge for me, it would be appropriate that for my first Stash Sunday post, I do my black and white polishes.

When I was digging out my blacks and whites for the photos, I realized I don’t have nearly enough, lol! Must remedy this one.

Blacks, from left to right: Shades of the Season Black, Sally Hansen Ink Splatter (crackle polish), !0 Lacquer The Little Black Dress, Piggy Polish Right Black At Ya!, Kleancolor Black (current go to black), Milani Black Sketch, Color Club Art Club Black.

Whites, from left to right: Shades of the Season White, Sally Hansen Hard to Get (current go to white), NYC Little Italy, Piggy Polish Frosty, Color Club French Tip, Milani White Canvas, Color Club Art Club White, Wet N Wild French White Crème, Flirt Stamping Polish White.

I noticed I have a few more whites than I do blacks, but I think that that’s because I tend to buy sets that come with a single white polish (the Color Club and both the mini whites came from such sets).

So, yeah, there you have it. My blacks and whites, and my first Stash Sunday. My Black & White Challenge post is coming up as well.
