Stamping Yellow Over Black? No way!
Today's stamping challenge was to use a stamp in addition to some other technique. I'm busting out with stamping using a new technique for color mixing! Natalie Brookes Nail Art discovered that if she took any polish and mixed it with white, it would become a more opaque 'stamping' polish. You can find her tutorial on Instagram HERE.
So, if the technique is about stamping over black, I guess I'll put on my fave black, Cult Nails Nevermore. One-coat shiny black goodness.
Ever search for the just the right words, but only symbols will do? They you need this image from the DRK-C plate!
In the tutorial, you put the white and the color on the image side-by-side, and then use the scraper to quickly blend the two colors before using the stamper. I probably used a little too much white, but you can see how thin this neon yellow is. I'm sure with a little practice, I'll get the mix to look right.

I'm excited about the stamping possibilities! Maybe I can make a red that stamps over black, too! Have you tried this technique? Is there a technique you've discovered that made you more excited to use a polish, or any beauty stuffs?
