    Have you tried using something around your cuticles like aquaphor so the polish doesn’t stick? I found it helps alot with cleanup when I am doing sponging.

    I like the gradient color sponging very cool. I agree it did look better with out the stamping. Oh and I Prefer your other camera angle.
    Thanks again for sharing another great video with all of us.

    thank you! I had never actually *seen* this method, now I understand it so much better :D (and I can share it with friends). But I do kinda prefer your previous angle for videos.

    Cool Kristina, bet it is harder in practice! Loved seeing the stamping too. I still like the other camera angle though. Ahh you have inspired my crafting and now my hands have a new lease of life too! Thanks C

    The new angle is a nice change! I like the white under your hands better tooo! Great idea for the nails!

    that looks awesome.

    i think your other camera angle was much better. and have you considered getting a cheap brush to clean up the polish around the cuticles instead of cotton swabs? i think a brush works a lot better.

    Love this! Thanks for sharing how to do the gradient polish. I have been wondering how ppl do this.
    I have pinned this post!

    Love the colour combination of the gradient stamping and agree that (in this case) it looked better without the stamping. Liked the previous camera angle better – but then I watch you card videos so have kind of got used to it! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for showing this sponge technique. I had heard of it but had not seen a demo. I like the other camera angle better.

    I love it. I love your paper craft work and this stamping. :)
    Beauty and paper craft is a good combination.

    I love this color combo,and I am addicted to nail stamping. I just tryed home gel nail polish. It turned out nice. I need to upload the photo. thanks for sharing your great ideas! *denise*

    I think this camera angle is great but I like previous one as well. I think it depends on what you’re trying to show. I thing the angle of this video really made it easy to see how the sponge is positioned when it makes contact with your nail. So, I wouldn’t mind if you mixed it up. Overall, I have always loved painting my nails and have been really enjoying all the things you’ve been doing!!

  • Chris May 12, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I prefer the overhead shot. Your tutorials are wonderful. Thanks.

  • Kimberly Lane May 18, 2012 at 11:39 am

    I don’t mind this camera angle at all. I’m used to the overhead angle from your card videos, but you probably don’t have to flip everything from this angle. You just keep on doin what you do, and we’ll continue to swoon over it from any angle. I hadn’t seen the combination scraper/stamper before. I have the separate pieces, but that looks like it helps you go a little faster. I may just have to buy that one. Thanks!

    Hi Kristina

    I love the combination tool! Where did you get that one?

    I also like this angle with the white :)
