Happy Friday my dears! Guess who's happy today? Don't mind me...
Any nice plans for the weekend? Why don't you ever tell me?! too shy? no plans :( ?
Today is day 25 of the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 33 Days Challenge and the prompt is "a new technique for you", that is for me, not for YOU. I always find the "pond" technique very cool so I decided to do a slight variation of it with flowers.

The "pond technique" is like a "jelly sandwich in a way, but painting dots in between coats of jelly nail polish, and the final look is supposed to emulate rocks or leaves at the bottom of a pond seen through the water.
For this manicure I used several coats of OPI Guy meets Gal-veston, and in between coats painted some little flowers using China Glaze Snow and a dotting tool. The effect I wanted was the optical illusion that some flowers are "deeper sunk" in the nail polish, whereas others are "floating" on it as if it was a pond. But of course I don't think this could qualify as a proper "pond manicure" because of the colours, lol.

Have you tried this technique? Or any jelly sandwich? What do you think about it?
