Good afternoon and happy Wednesday!
I've got two stamped manis I want to show you today, one of them I think is fail, but I'll let you be the judge of that :P
First up is today's, which I just love how it turned out. I absolutely love orange and gold together, but I just don't see it a lot. I've been promising myself I'd do an orange and gold stamped mani, and I finally got to it :)
The base is two coats of China Glaze Riveting and a coat of Seche. Stamped over that is Cheeky Jumbo plate 5 and Maybelline Bold Gold. For once, Seche didn't smear my metallic stamping, yay!
I don't know the third pic came out so dark, I must caught a shadow or something.
Now, yesterday's mani I think was something of a fail. I tried to do gradient stamping, which I've only done one other time, and that was quite some time ago.
The base color was 3 coats of OPI's Hotter Than You Pink over a coat of Put a Coat On!, then Seche. I let that dry a good while before I stamped over, because I've had the base slide off my nail before because it was dry enough. The stamped image came from Sugar Bubbles 002 and the colors were Milani's White on the Spot and Black Swift, then a final coat of Seche.
I don't know, I'm not unhappy with it, but I definitely don't really care for it.
