Sunday Stamping - Take Me Back to the 70's!



When I think of the 1970's, I think of the colors of the kitchens - harvest gold, avocado green.  So, that's where I started with this mani. 

China Glaze Tree Hugger.  A little brighter and shinier than a true '70's avocado green, at least it's in the spirit of the times.  This polish is pretty cool, and applies so nicely.  I'd almost forgotten how much I like China Glaze.

I added on OPI Charmed by a Snake.  Sometimes, a simple gradient is the hardest thing for me to do!   I often end up taking off more paint than I put on.  And the sponges are messy.  So, mostly, I end up dabbing on polish.  Eh, that's what stamping is for - to cover up the mistakes.

I loved this geometric stamp on Pueen 21.  It reminded me of the pattern of wallpaper in my parents' house.  Loosely, though.  I think real wallpaper with that exact pattern would have probably given us all seizures.


Per usual, the black is Finger Paints Black Expressionism, my go-to black for stamping.

Loving these colors!  Maybe I'll go put on some classic rock.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the stamping group does, considering most of them are too young to know the 70s at all!
