Stamping Saturday: DIY Vera Bradley Inspired Decals

I am so excited about this look today--I made Vera Bradley inspired decals!! Since I did my Jindie Nails Batman look I've been "Decal ALL the things!" I was inspired by Vera Bradley's Heather pattern, full of paisley and purple goodness.

For this look I started with a base of Polish My Life Soho Shoppes. Soho Shoppes is a very jelly crelly blue-toned purple. I did three coats. I was rushing so I had some problems with patchiness, if you are working normally though just give yourself enough dry-time between coats.

Luckily I have four stampers so I picked out four different spots on my MoYou London Fashionista 11 plate and stamped them all with Rica Blackout. I top-coated the stamped image on my stampers, then I went in with a teeny detail brush and filled in with some color. The accent colors are Polish My Life Breakfast On Fifth (blue-green), Greenwich Street (green), and Good Morningside (yellow). I love this little set of four cremes so much together! I top-coated everything once more so my decal was sturdy.

Putting the actual decal on took longer than painting them in I think. I just kind of slapped on some topcoat and stuck it on, trimmed with scissors, did another coat of topcoat, cursed a lot.... anyways they got on. I have some bubbling and patchiness in my detail... but seriously, they did not take too long and they look fabulous! I am pleased. Plan on seeing more decals from this girl!
