Sometimes quick and easy is just the way to go!  I started with a 2 coat base of the ever lovely OPI DS Magic — you just can’t go wrong, this is one of my favorite deep blues.  Once that dried I added (what I think looks like) a pebble stamp from BM-211 using China Glaze Crushed Candy, sort of a more blue version of For Audrey.  Wrapped it with a coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Teal and set off to stare at my hands on the handlebars biking through the neighborhood under the sun.  So much sparkly fun!

    That’s interesting using a crackle for stamping. I really live the way it came out!

    I know, right? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t! I think that the shapes are all random helps a lot since the shrinking looks a little more intentional.

      oooo I can see that now too! I bet if you threw a gradient in there too (either as the base or on the stamp itself) it’d totally boost the scale-ness of it.
