I’m getting so much use out of my silicone craft mat! I understand now why people love their nail art mats so much–the options are endless. I wanted to try out some smooshy nails, & I saw this technique some on Instagram before (I just can’t remember by who unfortunately) so I decided to give it a try.
- Base Coat: Perfect Formula Pink Gel coat
- Top Coat: Cutex Quick Dry Top Coat.
- My Beauty Spot unnamed green colour.
- Essie Wrap Me Up
- Essie Bobbing for Baubles
- Essie Cocktail Bling
- Nicole by OPI A Phil’s Paradise
- Born Pretty Store Peel Off Tape
- Born Pretty Store Clear Stamper
- Silicon Craft Mat
For this look, I started by dropping different colours onto my mat, & moving them around some to spread around the colour. I then took my clear stamper & pressed down, smooshing the polishes together. I immediately then pressed the stamper down on my nails to create the marbled look, & finished everything off with top coat.
I really love how these turned out. You can never go wrong with marbled nails. I don’t know if I could consider this an easier way to create smooshy nails, but it was definitely fun! You still want Liquid Latex around your cuticles to keep your clean up minimal!
