31DC2015 - Gradient - Stamped Scales

Turns out I'm some kind of masochist, doubling down on the gradients without realising!

Today's was a little easier in that it didn't require careful sponging, but it also relied on me stamping a bit more competently than usual. I think it worked though...


I started with a base of Acanthite from Moonstone Nail Polish hoping you'd get to see some of the glittery charcoal beauty peeking out, but I chose a pretty full image so I might as well have stamped over anything.

I picked this image from LilyAnna 03, a cool jagged dragon scale looking pattern that I adore. I did diagonal stripes on the image with some Hit the Bottle stamping polishes - Blue-tiful*, I Wish I Was A Mermaid* and Absinthe Minded* and ever so slightly repositioned my scraper with each swipe to blend the colours. 

Totally loving the result! I seriously need ALL the Hit the Bottle polish!



I'm super excited because this is the first time I've really nailed a stamped gradient! Let me know what you think in the comments :)
