SIMPLES: Splodging

The Crumpet has a challenge going, to help teach nail art from the simple to the master.

So week 9 is upon us and the task to master is a technique called 'splodging' which is something created around two years ago by The Crumpet herself! What I like about this technique is that it is so easy and pretty much impossible to mess up. Here are my examples:


La Femme - Skyblue Cream
Barry M - Guava
Barry M -Greenberry
Miss Sporty - Pop Fiction
Jessica - Holographic Top Coat


Sunday Stamping: Over Stripes


Base Polish: Sally Hansen - Dorian Grey
Striping Polishes: MUA - Frozen Yoghurt, ELF - Teal Blue
Other: Striping Brush
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 415
Stamping Polish: MoYou Nails - Special Nail Polish - Black

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 308 (BM308)


This stamping plate is from the third Bundle Monster set, from 2012. It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp. This is useful, without it it is easy to slice open your fingers and palms which I have been known to do accidentally in the past with other stamping plates.


There are 3 full nail images and three single images. All of these stamped well and judging by my designs below, the doughnut and cupcake are my favourite images!

Tri-Polish Challenge: Blue, Yellow and Red #4

This challenge has been going on for well over a year now, but the idea is there are three colours pre-picked and you find those three colours in your stash and use them in some kind of nail art. For the blue I used Max Factor's Odyssey Blue, the yellow Collection 2000's Sorbet and the red is ELF's Red Velvet.


Max Factor - Odyssey Blue
Collection 2000 - Sorbet
ELF - Red Velvet
