Digit-al Dozen Does Fandom; Day 2

One of the things I realized when I was thinking about the fandom theme to try to come up with nails, is that I'm not really a fan of much. Certainly not enough in the definition that I belong to a fan online group, or have to see the latest movie release of a director or actor or in a series, or run to the bookstore when a certain author has a release.  Not into video games either.   The only show I watch regularly is Big Bang Theory and I already did a BBT mani here. Never watched any of the Harry Potter movies, or Dr. Who, Hunger Games, nor seen any of The Walking Dead, Anarchy, or whatever else seems to be so popular on tv in recent years. While I do a lot of reading, not a big fan of any one author and again, haven't read a lot of the popular books or series. So instead, I decided to do nails on what I like and one of my favourite things is being around the water.  Whether it is going to the beach, swimming in the lake, going on a cruise in the ocean, puttering around the lake on my boat, or just sitting in on my deck, drinking a coffee, reading a book overlooking the water, I love the water!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of Chaoes & Crocodiles Forgotten Paths.  This is one coat...yes, one!

I didn't topcoat the base, instead, did a sponged gradient using Chaoes and Crocodiles City in the Clouds. This is my representation of sand/land and water/sky.

Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

Top coated before stamping.

Stamped using Funky Fingers Gesso using images from Bundle Monster BM-506 and MoYou Sailor Collection-07.

Closer look at the plate used.  Bundle Monster BM-506.

MoYou Sailor Collection-07

Top coated using KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

Here's the other ladies Day 2 fandom mani's!

    I LOVE being by the water too... does not matter what kind of water source it is... I love hearing the waves or just the water... My fiancé has always been a fan of lighthouses so whenever I see a lighthouse I think of him :) We have a sea theme in our bathroom ;)
