Watermarble Nails for the #31DC2017 Weekly

Hi there!

I am just getting in my challenge nails for the week by the skin of my teeth!  For the 20th week of the #31DC2017Weekly, we are doing Watermarbles.  Everyone's favorite nail art technique.  Haha!  Some people love doing this technique while others continuously struggle.  I am just average at it.  I mess it ip a bunch of times before I get something that I like.  I do prefer using jelly polishes for watermarbles, they just seem to spread better for me than cremes or shimmers. This week, I did a design that I haven't really done before.  More of a striped look that a classic flower design.  And then I stamped over it!  Crazy times, yo.

I started off this mani with a white base.  Then I used three bright jelly polishes from Pipe Dream Polish (Hippy Chick, Lava Lamp and Punch Buggy) to create the watermarble design.  After clean up and top coat, I stamped over the striped design with a black polish and a pattern from the BP-L007 plate from Born Pretty Store.  I wasn't really sure what I was going for with this look.  But when it was all finished it gave me real stoner art vibes.  Haha!  Like tie-dyed art with pot leaves.  Do you see it, too?

Here is a look at the watermarble design before the stamping.  It's good but there were some bubbles that made me not love it completely.
