For the first time I attempted stamping my nails. It didn't come out too perfect but ...
I guess you have to just pratice a lot to get the hang of this. I almost gave up but I kept trying and trying for a long time until I thought I got it. I watched some videos on youtube of people stamping their nails. It looks so easy. What I have to share of my own experience is that : 1) keep trying 2) be patient 3) try different colors and formulas of polish. I am excited try all of my designs.

I have been playing with my nail polishes.
Usually I sit down to do my nails in a Saturday but as I am no longer using a niper to get rid of my cuticules ( I will share my experience in another post) I have been changing my nail polish quite often. I was watching TV last night and painting my nails when I ended up with that funky look. I tried to use a Konad plate. It was very hard to get the design to transfer well to the stamper. I even tried two different brands of polish. But I guess you need to keep playing with it until you get the hang of it.The first one looks just like a cow then I added some gold to it and yeah see the result below. I love the fact that I have nails like I have printed a piece of fabric to it.
I apologize about the picture quality. I'll start to use my big camera with better light. It's just easy for me to snap a pic, do some montage w/ an app and then post to my fb page all from my phone.
I just clicke that picture so you can see how it looks like during the day.
Got those ones last night.
I have never done anything like that to my nails before. Would you wear it?
