Adventures In Stamping - With an Accent Nail

Hello & Happy Sunday :)  Today's AIS challenge theme is "With an accent nail" and I chose water marble on my ring finger as the accent nail.   The colors were OPI My Very First Knockwurst -  a nude creme with light pink tone; OPI Honk if You Love OPI - a purple creme with red tone; Essie Penny Talk - a copper metallic and lastly stamping plate was Pueen18 (link to Amazon)

On the accent nail, I started with a coat of Essie Penny Talk and for the water marble, I used a drop OPI My Very First Knockwurst, a drop of clear polish then a drop of OPI Honk if You Love OPI, and so on.  The purpose of the clear polish was for the base color to show since I knew Penny Talk wasn't going to work well in the water.

On the rest of the nails, I started with 2 coats of OPI My Very First Knockwurst then sponged the tips with Honk if You Love OPI.  Used Essie Penny Talk as stamping polish with Pueen18.  Let's take a look at these photos :)
Before stamping - I think this looks very pretty on its own
What do you think?  Thank you for dropping by :)
