Stripey Socks Stamping Succ... Fail
The stamping challenge for this week was announced late, and it was a free-stamping day. So, being that I've been getting into the Halloween spirit, I wanted to do something in that vein.
I started with Milani Enchanted Emerald, one of their new (I think LE) creams. It was much darker than I thought it would be, but still a gorgeous color.
I saw these stripey socks stamp and it reminded me of the Wicked Witch of the West's socks - or any witch's socks, really... or Beaker's socks (Beaky! I didn't know you wore stripey socks!) if you're a Muppet fan.
Ok, what is with that 'Natural Milk Product' stamp? First of all, I can't imagine it fitting on anyone's nails. Secondly... why? Is it just me?
I used Face Stockholm Thea, a light green holo, to stamp on the socks. The polish stamped fine, though I messed it up a little by double stamping.
What I don't get is why does it look like socks and feet on the plate, but look like tire tracks on my nails? I even tried to do a long stamp over my ring and pinky fingers, but it just doesn't come together.
Thea sure is pretty on its own, though. Really nice mirror finish and rainbow!
Tell me the secrets, o' Fireflies, of making the stamp look like it does on the plate! lol.
