Cutesy Halloween Stamped Manicure

Sorry for not posting for SO long, guys! I’ve been posting nail pictures on my Instagram, though. Be sure to check those out.

Anyhow, this is definitely not one of the gruesome, scary Halloween manicures out there. Yikes! I’m definitely more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost type of Halloween celebrator. :)

Here are the details on each finger…

All nails were topped with Seche Vite topcoat. :)

Raspberry Pink Stamping

Took a chance and tried stamping with a China Glaze polish today. Most of the time I stick with my tried and true polishes that I know I work (see this blog entry), but I thought since the base color on this manicure was a lighter pink, maybe the dark magenta raspberry color of Traffic Jam would stamp okay? I tried it on some paper first, and success! I just had to be sure to stamp quickly. Otherwise, it dried too quickly.

Anyhow, since I’ve tried that one, I want to try even more darker polishes! Have you discovered more non-Konad polishes that work well with stamping? Leave a comment below! :)

Base Color: China Glaze Dance Baby
Stamping Color: China Glaze Traffic Jam
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-322

China Glaze Fancy Pants + W111 stamping

Today I have a purpley-periwinkle polish called Fancy Pants from the China Glaze Avant Garden collection. I ended up stamping on top of it, but first here are the plain polish photos. It looks much more blue-ish in person. I love the subtle pink shimmer in it…

Then I did some stamping on it. :)

Base Color: China Glaze Fancy Pants
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pink
Stamping Plate: Winstonia W111
