Thinking this is something I’ve got to play with more often, it’s like a tiny little coloring book on your nails (and as my dad’s 2nd wife dutifully taught me as a kid, STAY IN THE LINES…or at least try).  The base is 2 coats of the ever-loved OPI Mermaid’s Tears, which I then stamped over using the paisley print on Konad m60 plate and OPI Jade is the New Black.  It wasn’t a perfect stamp job, but didn’t matter much since I’d already decided to sit on the couch watching bad tv and adding color to the stamp.  Introducing Color Club Age of Aquarius and Revlon Minted into the mix I used the smallest brush I have and all of the colors to fill in some spaces on the stamp and add lines/dots — could have kept going but frankly got a little tired, though I still really like how this worked out!
