So, after fiddling around unsuccessfully with the peacock on plate BM-15 - I just couldn't figure out to how get the placement right - I heaved one last sigh, and decided I would have to pick some other design.
I flipped through my nail plates binder and noticed that there's a peacock on Red Angel plate RA-102!
Hooray! I put my imagination to work to see if I could accommodate my hankering for peacocks after all.
I used China Glaze Kinetic Candy as a base. I used XL Stamping Plate B for the background design.
I stamped the pattern - not sure how to describe it, but it's circled in the piture - using three colors - Sally Hansen Insta Dri Jade Jump, China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le, and Revlon Top Speed Stormy. I tried to mush the colors a bit with the scraper so that the colors would mix a little at the edges.
Finally, I used Revlon Top Speed Espresso and Red Angel RA-102 to stamp this awesome little image of a peacock on top (I love its little "top feather").
Well, Konaddicts, there's one nail obsession temporarily assuaged...these things never last long, though. I'm sure I'll have a bee in my bonnet for another design any time.
Wait a minute - do I have any bees? :)
