Happy birthday to all the lovely Capricorns out there! I can’t believe it’s been a (almost) a year since we started this zodiac challenge. And I managed to get in every one (although I do have a few I want to have a second go at…). I definitely got some great use out of the zodiac stamping plates I had. But I actually did purchase one new stamping plate for the Western zodiac, only I’m not using it yet. I want to go through every zodiac on it and create a matching set of them. After taking a break for a year. 😂 Meanwhile, I’ve got another stamping plate I’m trying to “complete” and I should get back to it…

I love magnetic polishes, but the non-gel ones can be a struggle to worth with. You gotta get that magnet on it and hope it works every time. So I decided to use a gel magnetic for this design. I had fallen in love with the results from a tutorial by @nail_design115. Now the magnetic polish she used was high quality and all I had to use that was unused was…verrrry cheap. So if you see her tutorial and compare it to my nail art, yeah, quality (or the amount of magnetic to filler) in the polish matters big time. I even tried adding a second layer on a test nail and it just muddied the design. That’s okay. I was going to nail art on top of it anyway!
So instead I used two thin layers of a black jelly gel polish and then one layer of a (barely) green magnetic. This left me with a soft grey background with winks of green. Then I focused on using grey-ish blue to green shades for Saturn and all the stars and sea goat…parts (*cough*) you’d associate with a Capricorn.
