Thought to pull out some stamping today (it’s been… forever) so used an abstract sort of swirly pattern from plate SH21 — really couldn’t even begin to give this one a theme, it’s sort of a mishmesh of lines, swirls and squiggles.  I don’t know if I love it, especially since the more concentrated swooshy part bled like mad with the OPI I picked, but the randomness and the color combo definitely fits the ongoing blah-ish sort of mood around here (seriously, can we get some sun already?!!!!).

Started with a base coat of OPI Berlin There Done That, a mauve-concrete cream that I like a lot.  With two coats of that set, I sponged in some OPI Casino Royale near the tips for a berry twist, then stamped the pattern over that.  It may not be my favorite, but at least it was quick!  Also, the couple of random glitter flecks were unintentional; there’s so much glitter around the house lately, I’m picking it out of EVERYTHING (hooray Mardi Gras prep!)…
