Good morning dears! I must be on a nail art kick because I'm back with more nail art to share with you. This time it's all about stamping! Girly Bits released some awesome clear stampers that take the guess work out of stamping. Which makes it so much easier for the stamping-challenged nail girls like myself. If you are interested in the Transparent Frosted Stamper you HERE is the direct link. I also used one of the stamping polishes that Pam now sells - it was awesome! Can't wait to try more! The clear stampers are $9.46 USD individually but there are a few bundle packages you can choose from to fit your needs (extra stamper heads, stamping polish, uber mat, cotton holder, etc...). And the stamping polishes are $7.28 USD each. Now let's check out my post!

Here I wanted to show you that the stamper head is clear and you can see right through it.
Look how cool that is! I was smooshing the stamper on the prepared plate. Pretty awesome that you can see exactly what design you are going to pick up.
Design on the stamper head.
I have successfully stamped each nail. I found that smooshing the stamper head onto the nail instead of rolling it worked better (for me). And since I am still getting used to stamping there are a few patches that didn't make it on to my nail. But I'll keep trying until I get it right!
Removal is easy peasy. Get a piece of scotch tape. Press it down onto the stamper head, remove and TA-DA! The left over polish is gone. Do not use acetone on your clear stamper head. It will ruin it.
Now my tutorial is done and here's the finished product. I have on 2 coats of OPI O Suzi Mio, a gorgeous and deep eggplant purple creme. I stamped Girly Bits Firebrick on top and love how it turned out! Firebrick is a gorgeous shimmery, smoldering red metallic. It was extremely easy to use and bold enough to show up agains this dark base! I topped it off with a layer of topcoat for extra shine.
