The Christmas Story: The new tablecloth, day 6 - Jule historien: Den nye dug, dag 6

Dansk, se længere nede.
The little mouse peeped out her hole, and on the dinner table there was a new, dark green tablecloth with golden bows, or was it maybe exotic butterflies. And then she saw them – there were red berries on it. She felt the craving for red berries getting stronger and stronger, her mouth started to water.
To be continued…
Den lille mus kiggede ud af sit musehul, og på spisebordet lå der en ny dug. Den var mørkegrøn og dækket med gyldne sløjfer, eller var det måske eksotiske sommerfugle? Og Så var det at hun så dem, der var røde bær på dugen. Hendes trang til røde bær blev større og større, og hendes tænder løb i vand.

This is nothing special, I know. The base color is 2 coats of China Glaze Glittering Garlandand I planned different stamping patterns using Konad colors in red and gold on each nail. BUT I had no idea, that the red would be this hard to see on a dark green, since Konad’s black is SO well pigmented! On my thumb you vaguely can see, that the flowers initially have been stamped in red. In despair I changed to gold and one pattern only (Bundle Monster plate 205), not that it helped much, but it was better. To give the finish a little edge, I dotted the center of the big bows (possibly exotic butterflies LOL) with China Glaze Ring in the Red with a dotting tool, and finally I added Seche Vite top coat.
Dagens forsøg er ikke noget særligt, jeg ved det godt. Grundfarven er 2 lag China Glaze Glittering Garland og jeg havde planlagt at stampe forskellige mønstre med Konad rød og guld. Men jeg blev overrasket over, hvor dårligt man kunne se den røde på det grønne, specielt med tanke på hvor velpigmenteret Konads sorte er. På min tommel kan du se, at der først har været stampet med rødt. Derefter skiftede jeg til guld og kun et mønster ((Bundle Monster nr. 205), og resultatet blev da lidt bedre, selvom jeg ikke var tilfreds. For at give resultatet lidt kan dottede jeg sløjferne med China Glaze Ting in the Red, og øverst lagde jeg et lag Seche Vite top coat.

  1. It is cute and I like it:)Just a lil tip,if you want colors to stand out on a dark base use white first to draw the design and then go over with the color you want.Hope it helps:)

  2. Thanks Mimi, then I learned something new today too )
    So I stamp in white, and with a brush fill in the gold manually?
    I'm not sure double stamping would be så easy, sometimes yes, but with a full pattern, I think I need to be more experienced LOL

  3. You are welcome my dear,yes you can stamp it with white and then use a thin brush (I like to use nail art polishes) and just go over the design.Yeah double stamping could get tricky:)

  4. Thanks, Mimi, I'll try that the next time, I also could use acrylic paint!!

  5. Great tip! I don't stamp often so lets hope i can remember this when I DO! Beautiful mani!!

  6. Thanks, Nail Reflections :)
    And me too, after I started using the acrylics, I think that is going to be my favourite.
    Oh, and b.t.w. the tip of using a top coat before the carylics is great, it makes it even easier, so thanks for that!
