Morgan Taylor Under The Stars with Mermaid Scales Stamping (52 Week Challenge)
Oops, I’m late again for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge … but only by a day. The prompts were navy and scales. I’ve combined them this week and have used Morgan Taylor Under The Stars, stamped with a mermaid scales design in silver.
Morgan Taylor Under The Stars is a long time lemming of mine. But even after waiting a couple of years to buy it, I still waited another four months to wear it. That’s not surprising though seeing as my untrieds pile currently numbers more than 300 polishes. I really need a concerted effort to try to use them all.
Under The Stars has a navy blue jelly base with small and tiny holographic silver glitters. It’s gorgeous to look at. I stamped a mermaid scales pattern using Bundle Monster BM-502 and Barry M Foil Effects Silver.
The polish was still a bit lumpy, despite a coat of Gelous and a coat of top coat. But with a final coat of top coat after the stamping, it was nice and smooth.
The final look is not particularly mermaid-like. Under The Stars would be perfect for a galaxy manicure; not so much for a marine look. But it’s beautiful all the same. I’m glad I slayed that lemming.
