I hope you’ve had a great week. We have finished a week of lockdown, it’s weekend and it’s a new month. What a week it has been.
It’s time for the next instalment of My polish, your plate. Joyce and I will be challenging each other every first and third Friday of the month. One of us will pick the stamping plate and the other will pick the polish. If we don’t have the exact same polish / plate it can be substituted for something similar. This choice will be made by the person who picked. From there it is free reign as long as the polish and the image on the plate is main focus.
This week I want to start off with a public apology to Joyce for my choices. I don’t know what I was thinking but I hang my head in shame 😉 This week it was my turn to choose the polish. I chose Catrice – My big green wedding and Joyce chose the plate – BM-714. Originally, I was quite excited about these choices. I already had so many ideas. Then it al fell apart. Let me show you what I did,
I started with 2 coats of OPI – One chic chick on my middle and ring finger and 2 coats of Catrice – My big green wedding on my index and pinky. This was where I realised I made a mistake. I then used an almost dry brush of Catrice – My big green wedding to make a glitter gradient of sorts on my middle and ring fingers. I started on the stamping and ran into my next problem. I wanted to colour in the flowers with a pink and purple but I could not get the flowers to stamp well at all. I would get a few decent flowers at a time only. So I changed gears. I stamped the flowers as is. The image has a pointed edge so I just angled it to only stamp a piece. I topcoated everything and called it a (rough) day.
It’s clear that nothing went according to plan and I don’t even think the colours worked without the pops of colour I had panned for the flowers. The green polish isn’t exactly beautiful either 😛 I tried this a few different way and ideas and in the end I just gave up and went with it. I am dying to see how Joyce turned my horrid choice into a masterpiece.
