CNT 52 week PN'M ~ Houndstooth & Orange, Red & Yellow!

Hello Dahlings!
This week da Tarts are doing hound's tooth
&/or red, orange & yellow manis.
I did this...
 I started with a yellow base,
then did da Saran Wrap technique over it using orange & red.
I finished by stamping over everything with a hound's tooth pattern
& a coat of Seche Vite.
*le sigh*
I've reached da point where many of my full nail stamping images
aren't big enuf to fit my nails if I use them straight on.
Most of da time I can fit da images if I stamp on a diagonal,
but that wasn't going to work for me this time.
I have been getting more plates in da collage style
&/or with bigger full nail images,
but as most plates are designed to accommodate
shorter nails than mine,
I just have to get creative cuz I ain't chopping my claws.
Nuh uh, ain't happening!
 Da line up ~ Orly Day Glow (and a hot streaky mess it was!),
Savvy Orange Overload,
Nail Savvy Wild Purple Sizzle (I've had this bottle for 20+ years!),
Vivid Lacquer Plate VL 005 & Ruby Kisses Poison Apple for da stamping.
Not shown, but never out of reach ~my Creative Shop Stamper
>^. .^<
 Dis paper makes loud crinkly noises...
...where dey hiding da speakers?
Thanks for stopping by
& please check out da other Tart nails!

  1. Gosh your nails are long now! It must be a pain to outgrow the plates, can't see me ever having that problem! I like the textured background to your mani, makes it that bit special x x x

    1. Thanks, Wendy! It is a bit of a pita. LOL I used a bit of bubble wrap to splodge the polish around. Debbie Crumpet did a great tutorial on how to do different versions of the Saran Wrap technique. :)

  2. This looks really cool, the sponged base looks really neat under the sharp lines of the houndstooth
