Sunday Stamping - Free for all!



This Sunday's challenge was to do whatever we wanted! Well, that's an easy one, as there was a stamp I was itching to try.

I started out with one of the summer's trends - the almost white polish.  Something about a light, light color - it gives even a porcelain child like me the inkling of a summer tan.  This is Maybelline Poolside, an almost-white blue.

As with most whitish polishes, it's streaky on the first coat, but this one filled in nicely on the second.  No topcoat in that first pix.

I ordered this jumbo plate from China.  It actually has a lot of duplicate stamps from other plates, but there was one I didn't have that I wanted to dry - this one that emulates dry marbling.

It's a technique that I haven't quite mastered, mostly because I drag too deeply and scratch all the polish.  This stamp makes it look effortless, though!

I stamped with this beautiful metallic blue from Color Club that has no name.  Well, I'm sure it has one, but when sold in packs at Ross or Marshalls, I guess they save money by eliminating the name stickers.  Or, maybe, it's just to mess with our heads a little.  Good joke, Color Club! hahahahahaha.  NO.

why doesn't Color Club slap a label on these?!

If you could have any stamp, what would you want to stamp on your mani?

    1. I think getting some stamping supplies would be cheaper, but I'd love to see you!

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
