The Digit-al Dozen Pattern on Pattern: Day 5 Diagonal Floral Stamping and the "Rest"

This post contains:
Purchased by Me items

Day 5 of Digit-al Dozen Week!! The theme for this month is Pattern on Pattern. So for the final day I did a diagonal stamping mani. And of course it's also the day I show you what didn't make the cut. In this case, there's one that didn't make the cut and one I was too dumb to use for the prompt because it was perfect!

The Digit-al Dozen Pattern on Pattern

For this mani I did a diagonal using Nails Inc. Belgrave Place (purchased by me) and Zoya Eden (swatches here - sent for review).  Then I used DRK-A plate for the flowers, using the same colors in reverse. Finally, I finished up with a coat of Zoya Matte Velvet Top Coat (purchased by me).

And the fail...

I used Zoya Taylor and Barry M 293 Grey and a sponge to make the mottled effect and did freehand criss-cross lines (like you'd do for an Argyle Mani) - with a coat of Zoya Matte Velvet Top Coat. I think it just didn't seem "finished" and I'd lost my mojo lol!

And this is the one I posted without thinking it would be perfect for the theme!

Check out the details in my post here.
