Shrimp two ways…

So I really didn’t expect to be using my cooked shrimp stamping plate once let alone twice! At the weekend one of my work colleagues had their 50th birthday party, and everyone had to come wearing a silly hat/wig or have crazy hair as she is also a cancer survivor of 10 years. She asked for no birthday presents instead any money that we would have spent on one, was to be offered as a donation – how admirable is that. I chose to wear a shrimp hat, (which I already owned from one of my own fish themed birthday parties), and painted my nails to match of course!

Shrimp Show…

So as you may or may not know I am an avid fishkeeper, this also includes the odd freshwater shrimp (nothing fancy just your usual). At the weekend, Scotland’s very first shrimp show was held so it was obvious I had to attend. It was actually in conjunction with a fish tabletop sale – think of a car boot-sale inside, on tables, for everything aquatic. I  actually picked up many a great bargain, but no fish as I was only in the market for tank decor, but anyway I’ve digressed. SHRIMP NAILS!

Did anyone else eat those pink, foamy shrimps when they were younger? I swear that’s all I could smell whenever I looked at my thumbnail, it was so weird. I created these shrimps by using a hehe stamping plate, and using the ‘stamping decal/reverse stamping’ technique with my clear stamper from BornPrettyStore, it just makes it so much easier to see where you’re painting and where you’re placing.
