Long time no see! Many apologies for my absence, but life and a car accident got in the way of blogging for a while. I’m still loving playing with my Sinful Colors Transforming Top Coats to create Stamper Fluid Nail Art, so here’s my latest design…

Seventeen Silver Triangle Studs
You’ve probably noticed my new nail shape… I was getting really fed up of my corners breaking constantly and so I thought I’d go back to a rounded shape. It’s very difficult to get them all the same length like this, so it didn’t last long!
The method for this design is similar to my Fluid Nail Art post, but a bit easier to control. I put the colours together on my stamper head and then transferred them to my nail that way. By putting the colours quite close together you get those awesome fluid art cells and hardly any on your skin.
This time, I didn’t use a colour for the base, I just created it straight onto my base coat. To be honest, this type of art uses a thicker layer of polish and so is easily opaque. There’s no need for another coat.
Once I’d finished with the fluid art, I used a dot of nail glue to attach a stud near the cuticle on each nail. You have to be quick with any manoeuvring before it sets!
A coat of Seche Vite seals it all in of course!
Stamper Fluid Nail Art
I generally create designs that have differences between my fingers – rather than all the same. Although there is a stud on each nail, the fluid art design makes each nail totally unique, which is perfect for me.
