Nail Stamping

Lots of stamping, part 1

April 15, 2012

Hi all! Out of town this weekend at a papercrafting retreat with some friends. I packed a bunch of nail polish and had many guinea pigs to try out different color and stamping combinations on. It was heaven! :)

I have five to show you today, and I’ll show another five tomorrow. Enjoy! If you have a specific question about colors used, let me know. :)

P.S. Sadly, I didn’t get a picture of all the manicures I did over the weekend. I completely forgot to grab pictures of a few. So if any of you ladies are reading and have pictures, please email them to me! :)

    Love these! What’s a good white polish that you recommend for using with nail plates?

    • kristina April 16, 2012 at 8:12 pm

      The only white polish that I’ve been satisfied with is the Konad Special Polish in White. :)

    Hi Kristina, I’m searching for the polka dot plate you used for my purple nails, I can’t find it. What is it? Also you had one with clouds, do you have a number for that one? You’ve hooked me HARD on this. :-D Thanks again for the fun manicure, and I love this blog!!

    • kristina April 18, 2012 at 1:08 pm

      No problem. The clouds and dots are both on the same plate actually. Konad m79. :)

    I showed one of your older nail vids to my 26yr old daughter and she is hooked !
    Now she would like to get started with the stamping templates and wonder if you have a vid /post showing a “Getting started basics” ?
    What does she need to get started as a beginner/broke waitress :)
    Love your new blog !
