VALENTINES SKITTLES FAIL !

I had such high hopes for this mani, but this turned into one of the biggest fails ever ! 


You may remember I got some stamping plates from born pretty a while ago and I only got round to trying them out the other day, I decided the use the hearts french tip stamp, now this is my first time stamping and I don't think it could have gone any worse ! 


I thought I'd stamp the pattern to cover my whole nail in all different pinks and reds etc, so I painted all my nails with a pale pastel pink franken and then started stamping with zoya renee, sometimes it went ok other times I just wanted to cry ! anyway I carried on with different colours and then in an attempt to hide the hideous stamping I started layering different polishes over it 


pinky - Teenage dream, Ring - I lilly love you (it smudged so badly !), Middle - clear with a red heart rhinestone, Pointy - nubar 2010

This was my favourite finger out of them all , but it was still a shambles ! loll look at my horrific stamping, I completely missed the side of the nails ! : o 

Anyways I hope your Ok after that, do you have any stamping tips for me ?

  2. no worries. practice makes perfect! not bad for your first try. I think a lot of it has to do with the stamping polish you're using because a lot of regular nail polishes don't work. I myself only use regular nail polish if it's a chrome or if it's sally hansen insta dri, but I mainly use Konad stamping polish. Hope you enjoy your Valentines day!
