NOTW:A Stamping Experience

 Hey Fellows,
Let me share with you my first stamping on nails.

I got this stamping kit of mine after almost three0 five months of eyeing it..So my excitement bar was pretty high when I got this.. I literally was squealing with joy on first view and could not wait to get some patterns on my nails. Now like every one else I did spend some time getting a hang of it .. and let me say that there was a time or two when I was completely disappointed but a few tries later I was enjoying the end result. I still have not mastered yet I am trying to do experimenting.. Cant really help it..Lets see what I did this weekend.

For starters, I had applied a nude polish on my nails by Golden Girl after a base coat by Sweet touch. It is an awesome color and was quite complimenting my hand on its own.

So what you naturally have to do is get a nail polish which is thick, pigmented and is not fast drying .. Thanks to The Feminine Crusade I got to get this Purple nail color here.I am going to do an individual post describing that shade. But it gave me liberty to do something else than the usual blue red green shades which come along.
Once you get a blot on the pattern plate, you have to scrape the polish off the pattern with scrapper along. Now, that was a little tricky for me too, as I didnt know what side is front/ back. that took me a couple of tries to sort out.I still mix that up that usually takes another try to take the pattern.

Finally, you have to take the design on the stamp along that is super soft and squeezes right in to the carved and filled with polish pattern. Lastly stamping it over the nail ant locking is with a top coat does it all.

I decided to make the pattern a little congested by stamping a little more..Okay!! it is actually a lot more but I enjoyed the bouquet  look it gave .

So that was all.
Hope you all enjoyed the post.
See ya next time
