Floating triangles in the sky

Hi loves! How was your weekend? Did you have a long weekend just like us because of Kingsday, or are you from another part of the world? I didn't celebrate at all, actually we stayed in all day, my parents came to visit so that was nice. But nothing orange for me lol!



Well, today I want to show you a nailart I did a while back - I was having fun with some supplies and created this airy, sponged blue base. Then I decided to stamp it and I really digged the look!


Like I said, I started with a sponged base. I created it by painting on Polish My Life Cloud Blue in 2 easy, thin coats. After it dried I tore off a little piece of a make-up sponge and dabbed on El Corazon 423/271. Then I went back in with some more Cloud Blue to soften it up. The stamp is Born Pretty Store BP-14 - aren't those triangles just adorable?!



For the matte finish I used Cirque Colors Matte Look topcoat. It dries nice and flat and didn't smear my art so that's great! I also think it really compliment the final look. Makes the stamping stand out more!



What do you think of this look? Would you have picked a matte or shiny finish? Tell me in the comments!
