Ahh... the penultimate day of this month-long challenge, and it's a Friday to boot! I'm glad to see this week come to a close, and frankly, the month as well. Today's prompt challenged us to do "Something You've Never Tried Before" and I decided it was a perfect time to try leadlight stamping (as well as clear some jellies out of my untried box).
To start out this design, I painted two coats of Barry M Coconut on all my nails.
I stamped random parts of MoYou London Fashionista plate 11 in Konad Black on each nail.
After protecting my stamping with top coat, I used my smallest dotting tool tips to stipple in the jelly finish polishes and paint my designs. I used L'Oreal Bananarama Love, Mango Mama, Berry Nice, and VIP Room, as well as Sally Hansen Cotton Candy with this leadlight technique.
This is definitely not a technique for shaky hands (I'd had two cups of coffee before I started, and had some real trouble in some of those tight areas) but if the polish is "jelly" enough, it's pretty forgiving. It didn't take me as long as I expected it would to color in all the fiddly bits, so I'm definitely interested in trying this again later on.

Have a great weekend, and I'll see ya soon!
