Nail Challenge Day 14: Stamping Fun

Stamping and I have never been best friends. I just couldn't get my Konad kit to work for me and had banished it to the back of my nail drawer. So I definitely was worried about this challenge but what a surprised this turned out to be. See how I overcame my stamping dilemma, discovering some tips and tricks to make stamping my new best friend :)


Get the Look:
1. Apply your base coat and three coats of Cailyn Cosmetics nail polish in #818.

2. Allow the blue polish to dry completely before stamping
3. Prepare your stamping kit, ensure it is super clean before use: Konad plates or whatever fauxnad you have, scraper and stamper. Keep some cotton and acetone nearby for cleanup. A nice thick white for stamping is essential; it shouldn't be too thick or thin. I'm using Nail Fusion by Sacha Cosmetics in White. This is a stripper brush polish.
4. Brush on some of the white all over the well of your design. Ensure it full covers all the spaces.
5. Immediately use your scraper to remove excess polish.
6. Move quickly and pick up your design with your stamper.
7. Still moving quickly apply the design straight onto the blue polish. Make sure to line up the pattern with the nail bed. 
8. Give it a moment to dry a bit and then apply your top coat to seal in your design. 
9. Optional: Add a few white dots to add some interest to your design :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
