Stamp or Watermarble?

Good afternoon, everybody! 

Excuse my absence for the past several days; I was spending some much needed time out of town with the boyfriend since we had a long weekend due to MLK Day. :) As always, I didn't take anything to do my nails with - it always seems like such a hassle to take a separate bag for my nail paraphernalia when I'm just going to be there for a few days. >.< I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I'm excited to finally be able to post again today. :D

Enough with the rambling. Here's the mani I'm sporting today!


Can I please just say that I am in looove?! :L 
I used Zoya Jem as a base and stamped over it with OPI Silver Sparkler, (I THINK... it appears my mom took the label off when she previously owned it? :tdown) using Konad stamping plate m63. Then I added a rhinestone to each middle finger, which kind of just looks like a bubble. OH WELL. 

This stamp reminds me of a really well done water marble. Like, one I'd never be able to achieve, lolol. :P I tried to photograph Jem by itself, but it just wasn't happening... I still don't have the skillz to capture the true essence of berries. :|| 

What do y'all think? Does it look like a water marble to you? Hope everyone has a great rest of the day! :D

    1. Thanks, girl! I really liked the colors, too, surprisingly. I'm more of a bright in-your-face colors kind of gal. ;)

  3. this stamp has fooled me many times! I have it,but haven't used it yet. I do water marbling so I'm not apposed to getting a little messy for the cause. But this is a great and fast way to get the marbled look! I love it and that base color is soo gorgeous!!

    1. You are very skilled in the water marbling department, indeed! I've only done one water marble (because the challenge I was doing at the time forced me to :P) and it was a lot of fun and really neat, but took me fooorever. This took 10 minutes to stamp, so I bet I'm more inclined to choose this instead most of the time, lolol.
