Hey there! As I mentioned last week, I was recently sent the latest Clear Jelly Stamper layered stamping plates to test out. Today I have a mani I did with CJS09, also known as the Under The Sea plate. I always love underwater scenes on my nails and this plate made it super easy. Keep reading to hear all about it.
A scan of CJS09 (Under The Sea) is shown below. It has a great mix of images to be used for an underwater mani - bubbles, jellyfish, fish, seahorse, octopus, coral, starfish and vegetation. The layering effect achieved with some of these images are even better than making decals (but much quicker). For example, the fish has 4 different layers so you can have the fish in one color, the scales outlined in another and the overall outline in another. Did I mention it's also faster? That's definitely the main reason I love these layering plates.
After using Starrily Blitzen in a decal not long ago I knew I wanted to use it as a base. I applied one coat and then sponged more on to make it opaque. Then I got to the stamping. I used Mundo de Unas Avocado, Geranium, Mexican Pink, Tutti, Barbie, Sunflower, Silver and White. For the outline stamps I used Mundo de Unas Black.
For all of the stamping I used the Crystal Clear Stamper. As far as regular sized clear stampers go, this one is my go-to. I don't know what makes it different from the other clear stampers I have but it just works the best in my hands.
I'm proud to say that Clear Jelly Stamper is a fellow Canadian and the original inventor of clear stampers and layered plates. Not long ago I saw someone asking who really invented them and a bunch of us commented that it was indeed Clear Jelly Stamper. We should all be very thankful for such a great invention.
