Crumpet's Laid-Back 31DC: Your Favourite Nail Art Technique


Today's prompt is "Your Favourite Nail Art Technique". Mine is stamping! But you knew that...

I started with one coat of Duri Rejuvacote, and three coats of Essence Peach & Cream. That was followed with one coat of Essence Space Queen and Seche Vite. Once dry, I used China Glaze Snap My Dragon to stamp the image from Bundle Monster plate BM-206. I finished this look with one coat of NYC In a New York Minute so as to not smudge the design.

Indoors, natural light, no flash.
Stamping today went pretty well. As you can see, I had some issue with the entire image transferring all the way to my nail tip. I learned as I went along and realized this was due to lack of even pressure when rolling the stamper across my nail. My left hand went much better.

More soon! ^_^

    1. Thanks! Stamping is one of the things that got me into polish. I love how you can easily make crisp, neat images with it, and since I'm pretty terrible with free-hand type of nail art, this let's me do things I wouldn't normally try. You can do it! ^_^
