I'm really excited to show you my first ever successful stamping attempt! And just in time for Valentine's Day too.
I used Pink-ing of You by OPI as the pink base for my middle and ring finger. My index and ring finger have Magazine Cover Mouse by OPI and the color I used for the stamping is a Essie polish that I unfortunately don't know the name of. I honestly don't remember where I purchased the stamping plate from. Sorry ^.^; Once I have practiced a bit more, I will definitely share a step-by-step guide on how I do my stamping.
Next thing I wanted to do last night was start catching up on my January Nailart Challenges. Day 9 was Patterns and I don't know about you guys, but I'm still cheetah print obsessed.
I think these are the neatest I have ever done cheetah prints before. I absolutely love how this came out and I hope you all do too. If you guys need a tutorial on how-to-do this design I have one available here.
I used Mink Muffs by Essie for the nice creamy brown base. For the accent nail, I used Angel Food by Essie and then topped it off with 2 coats of As Gold As It Gets by Essie. I seriously must have done these in less than 20 minutes, just call me super nail-woman. I do apologize though because I wasn't able to get a photo without some glare. Too much shine!
Side note: When did I become Essie crazy? It seems every polish with the except of one was Essie this post. Oh well, not a bad thing. I have to go through all my untried's at some point or another.
Anyway, like I mentioned before, these were the neatness design I think I may have ever done to date. I'm so extremely happy for that. I mean that's improvement! *high-five* For Christmas I received a desk so that I have a proper place to do my nails. I used to just have to sit on the bed and work on my nails that way. Talk about a mess. I'll have to take photos some time and show you guys around.
I'll stop babbling now haha. TGIF everyone, take care until next time.
