Design 3 of 31DC2013 – Yellow Nails
Yellow is my favorite color on the color wheel. Yet, it is hard to find yellow nail polish with a decent formula, but this polish collector is up to the challenge *smile*wink*. For these nails I picked a bright yellow base polish with a silvery shimmer. Then, giving Mr. Kimett a few choices of colors to use for stamping, he chose black. After which picking the stamp design was a no-brainer.
The smiling faces and the wink stamp images befit this color perfectly. I was mostly happy with the stamp alignment/placement on my fingers – still working on this and other steps of the stamping process.
It was also my first stamping with such a large block of image (the mouth); it came out OK, minus the smudge of the smile line on the left. And – it was another even bigger first: using a ingenious tip from the insanely talented Anutka of Waki Laki. She suggests using a refill sheet of the lint rollers to clean the stamper in between uses (see this post). This was such an improvement to the process and I will be using this from now on.
These nails were so bright and eye catching; they made texting, typing and doing anything with my fingers that much more fun! A little extra time to remove this color – it wants to stain anything it comes in contact with – but worth it.
