Stamping Spring Decals
Happy Sunday, Fireflies! It's Stampin' Time!
I started out with a base coat of Cult Nails Evolution, but, I must be slipping in my old age, because I forgot to get a picture of it.
And, it's not the only egregious mistake I made in this post. Oh, yes, it gets better.
Today's theme is Spring Nails, so I found this really cute stamp with flowers and bees on Dashica Big SdP-M, and thought it might be time to try making my own decals for the first time.
I layered on some topcoat onto a piece of plastic, and when it dried, I stamped the image with Milani White On The Spot over the topcoat.
I bought the stamper that Cult Nails debuted this month, but I haven't been able to stamp successfully with it yet. I'm so used to my squishy stamper, and this one is so hard. It's a bummer, too, because the stamping head is red, instead of white, and would have been great to use with this white polish.
When that dried, I painted some yellow bees and pink flowers with Cult Nails New Day and Falling Hard. When that part was dry, I applied some topcoat to my nails and applied the decal. I also painted an accent with Kelara Lacquer (now defunct) Hooray For Boobies 2.0, a Barbie-pink shimmer.
Notice anything about my thumb decal? Yep, I noticed there was something weird about it, too, but it wasn't until I was editing this post that I realized what it was.
I put the decal on backwards.
*slow clap* *bow* Yep, takes special talent to do that.
