Brainstorm, take me away from the norm....

This Sunday's stamping challenge was "inspired by music" - favorite song, music video, artist, etc.  My favorite band is 311.  So my nail art today was inspired by 311's song and music video "Amber".

First I created a Sunset gradient (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture prior to stamping, ahhhh!!) by applying my colors to a sponge all at once and dabbing it on.  I went over about 3 more times to make sure it was opaque.  For this, I used:  

OPI "Flashbulb Fuchsia"
China Glaze "Papaya Punch"
Essie "Tart Deco" 
Color Club "Dress For The Parade"
I applied a coat of CND Super Shiney High Gloss Top Coat, and then over that I applied 
OPI "DS Treasure"

The sunset was inspired by this picture:

I'm embarassed of my nubbin.  lol.  my dog pulled on his leash and ripped my nail off.

I stamped with Konad Special Black polish, using plate m26 and m29.

The 311 logo was actually just an experiment.  I just got water decal paper so I'm going to try that, but these were printed on regular paper and I soaked them in water and then rubbed them into my nail.  I did have to go over it with a nail art brush though because it did not transfer well.  I love this, I hope you do too :)
