Plasma Plays in 21 Ways – #5 & 6 April 16, 2012

Here’s the list:

Plasma Plays in 21 Ways

1 Rock a Nude Shade
2 Add a Layer of Shimmer/Glitter/Anything You Choose, To That Nude
3 Polka Dots (get creative, do multi colors, do it over the nude from before or change your base color, go monochromatic) So many options!
4 Execute a half moon manicure!
5 Go dark
6 Stamp some metallic polish over that dark with the image plate of your choice!
7 Do a gradient of 2 colors or more (check YT for different kinds of techniques)
8 Get your stripe on. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, one, two, seven?! oh what to do!
9 Ruffian! Example 
10 Ombre nails
11 Pick a color you’ve never worn (I’m hoping I’m not the only one with untrieds) lol
12 Pick a green
13 Add a layer of polish over that green that you think doesn’t go with it! (orange glitter?) be creative! Get ugly! 
14 Today, we will wear blues!
15 Grab a straw and do some paint splatters over that blue! One color, multicolored, whichever you please! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see this tutorial
16 Wear a pink
17 Add flowers to that pink *stamps, one-stroke, dotted flowers* you choose!
18 Wear a purple
19 Add a chevron (those triangles) to your purple! Use scotch tape if you need help!
20 Go yellow
21 Finally, add a black stamp to that yellow

#5 Go Dark. I used China Glaze Watermelon Rind from the 2009 Summer Days collection. Watermelon Rind is a gorgeous glass-flecked teal green. This is a very sheer polish but it builds nicely. Pictures show 3 coats.

#6 Stamp some metallic polish over that dark with the image plate of your choice! I just wanted to do a simple stamp since this polish is so gorgeous! Plus I don’t own many plates so my selection is limited. I added a flower stamp to my ring finger. I had a really difficult time picking it up on camera though 😦

    Lovely. Would be a great St Patricks Day manicure:). I’ve not explored the world of stamping as yet. You make it look easy! Am sure it’s probably not:)

    • I was thinking the same thing 🙂 St Patricks Day!

        It totally would! I didn’t even think of that! I think the stamp was a flower but maybe it is clovers?? Not sure, but the colors I choice makes it even more appropriate for St. Paddy’s!

      I don’t really stamp very often. I got really into at one point but never invested in the special polishes and have just a few plates. So I got bored with it quick and wasn’t interested enough to purchase more plates. I do like the look of it though. And it is actually super easy, it’s just finding a polish that works well with it or using the special polish.

    That’s a pretty colour 🙂 I should try on stamping again 🙂

    I love all the 21 Ways posts! So great designs, I have been so lazy lately, but I really wanna paint my nails now 😀

      It’s been fun doing it. It gives my mind a break because I don’t have to think of a design but it doesn’t totally tell me what to do so I still have creativity with it.
