My First Stamping Experience!

Hi everyone!  I'm excited about today's post.  I posted a picture on my Facebook on Saturday that I was practicing stamping, and I'm happy about how my stamping skills have developed.  After trying it out a few times, it became much less daunting than before.  After I posted the picture on Facebook, I removed everything and started fresh so I'd have even more practice! =)  Here's what I came up with!

First, my base color is one coat of Milani Mint Candy, a gorgeous minty teal green with a blue shimmer throughout.  This was my first Milani polish, and I really liked it.  Application was a breeze.  The photo is pre-clean up because I knew I'd have a lot of clean up after stamping.


Then, using my stamper from the Salon Express kit and Red Angel plate RA-112, I stamped using WetNWild Wild Shine Black Creme.  I've read that cheap WetNWild polishes work really well for stamping.  To help make it nice and thick, I left the cap unscrewed on my stamping polish for about 30 minutes.  I'm not sure if that really changed anything, but the polish worked really well for stamping!


 Ahhh it actually looks half decent!  Spacing the stamp out properly on the nail is probably what I'm struggling with most right now.  I will be doing a lot of practice with this in the future...it's so fun!  The possibilities are endless!  I'm so glad I finally built up the courage to try this!  Are you hooked on stamping/konad?! =)  Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to check out The Lacquerologist on Facebook! <3

    The more you do, the better you get. I am definitely hooked on stamping! I think it transforms any polish you have on your nails. :-D
