For this design I used a the “smoosh” technique, which is perfect for my Clear Jelly Stamper (CJS). It makes for a quick but eye-catching design! It’s also a great way to use up some older polishes from your stash… Here are the colors of Gelish I used:
- black – Black Shadow
- red – Don’t Toy With My Heart
- gray – Fashion Week Chic
- nude/neutral – Taupe Model
I did one coat of Taupe Model as the base, cured it, then applied small drops of all the colors in various spots on the nails. Next, I used the clear stamper to smoosh the drops around so they blended a little, but not so much that the colors became “muddy”. Finally, I cured the design for 1 minute.
Once the smooshing was done I thought it was a little boring so I stamped on top using a floral design.
