The other day I was cruising through the beauty section in my local Ross store and I happened upon a stamping kit for $6.99. This isn't the first time I have seen it, but this is the time I decided to buy it and give it a whirl. I'm so glad I did because the darn thing actually worked! Not a bad find for the price! If you see one I highly suggest you purchase it and play around with learning to stamp!
I started my mani with 2 coats of Catrice King of Greens, which was a polish included in a swap package from my friend Dulce at Miminihos Que Eu Gosto. This is a beautiful green with a green/gold shimmer. The formula was slightly think, but not hard to work with. I could have gotten away with 1 coat, but because I am so used to using 2 I did just that.
For my next step I sponged 2 coats of OPI Catch Me In Your Net on my tips. CMIYN was a very exciting birthday surprise from my good friend Gina at My Dirty Little Obsessions. CMIYN is a a stunna! It's blue-teal with teal glass flecks. It's a polish that is slightly hard to find, but it also has a few dupes (Zoya Charla, Jesse's Girl Glee). I was afraid this color would be sheer when I used it, hence why I layered it. But I think layering it over the green took away from the pretty blue and made it a more green glass fleck polish. Live and learn, right?
Finally I used a black to stamp a design on all my nails. The design reminds me of one of those weeds you pick up, bow all the little floaty pieces off and make a wish.
So have you tried stamping? What do you think of my first attempt at it?
