Stencil Nail Art

I'm not great at precise nail art. There is the option to stamp, as much as I love it, I've had many disasters. Enter nail stencils! 

It's fairly simple. Begin with a base colour, wait for it to dry, place the stencil on the nail, paint with another polish, then before it dries, remove the stencil. The stencil removal step needs to be done quickly. 


 For my base colour I used Avon Nailwear Pro in a deep purple colour, which I seem to have misplaced so can't tell you the shade name! With the wave design stencil slanting across my nail, I applied LA Colors Color Craze "Live". I then topped the complete look with Glam Polish "Dreamscape".





I think my nails would have looked better without the flakies over the silver, just the purple. I think it would have given it a crisp look by showing the design lines off better. 

What do you think? Are stencils something you would consider using on your nails?
