Before & After: French Comics

(Polish is press sample; affiliate links)


Today's theme in the Crumpet Nail Tarts challenge is "Comics", and I recently had the theme "Funky French" in the Nail Challenge Collaborative, so I had to combine them both!

I started with Barielle Sheer Nonsense, which I thought had a bit of a newspaper feel:

 Then I stamped with MoYou London Pro 16 and Frenchy 5:

I stamped with Eat Sleep Polish Endless Sheets of Canvas, and I used the reversed-stamping technique for all images, and colored them in with Sally Hansen Lightning and Rapid Red:

What do you think? I think it's sassy and bright and kitchsy and fun. I meant to make the girl's eyes blue, but totally spaced it out--I think that would have been an extra pop of color that would have worked well, but I still think it's fun as is. Hope you like it, too!

Happy stamping,


Make my day--leave me a comment!
