I have something special to show you today. Not special because it's awesome (it's not), but special because it marks a major milestone in my nail art journey... today is the day that I show you that I conquered STAMPING!!! Woohoo!!! As such, this post is dedicated to Tracy Ball-Eriksson for all her encouragement and for sending me her double-ended Konad stamper all out of the kindness of her heart. Thank you so much for making this post possible Tracy :-)
Let's take a look at my efforts:
|Sorry it's blurry :/ My camera can't cope with the new glossy TC.|
Of course, then I had to go and ruin the mani. The colours I chose weren't a great combo anyway (I thought I was going to play and fail, not play and WIN!), but then I sorta made things worse :P
Don't believe me? I'll show you:
Hmmm O.K., I'll give you that, it doesn't look so bad. Not thaaaaaat awful... but check out what I did next (ohhhhh why, oh why???):
|Why, why, why?!|
|Oh well, at least the stamping looks awesome here!|
Yep.... ew :-( I think I'll try to paint over the sparkle top coat later with the purple again lol. Oh well - we live and learn! :P
Edit: I actually ended up removing this later that night. I just couldn't take the ugly!!!
Here are the polishes I used for this (rather experimental) mani:
- Rimmel Grey Matters (blue-grey base)
- Catrice Copper Cabana (stamping)
- Kiko #315 (purple)
- Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat
Finally, as always, I'd like to show you the base colour for this mani:
|This is a very versatile blueish grey with two coats of|
HK Girl on top - very glossy!
Sooooo... GO ME, right?! This mani is pretty fugly, but I learned not to do this colour combo again, and I learned that less is sometimes more ;-) Of course, I also learned that I CAN stamp :D I can't wait to get some more stamping polishes and play with my GALS set :D
What colours would YOU have chosen to go with Copper Cabana? Let me know in the comments!!!
'Til next time, curlettes ;-)
