Stamping!

I finally got a Bundle Monster set (forgive me, I can't recall which one.) and am beyond tickled with it.  I've been having so much fun that I don't even care when the look doesn't work out.  Here is a mani that did work out though using BM-224.

I used American Apparel L'Esprit as my base color.  I just love it, it's such a lovely soft lavender and it goes on like a dream. 

Once that was dry I started using Wet and Wild French White Creme for the stamping, I didn't like the look of it so I switched to Orly White Tips which although not as strong a contrast as I would have liked, came out much better.

I then added a top coat of my Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple which didn't really show up well in any of the pictures for whatever reason.  Looks great in the bottle though doesn't it.

Finally I finished it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.  I really love how girly and dainty looking it ended up, love love! 
One of the great things about shorter nails, the full images fit my entire nail.  Whoohoo!!  I just love stamping, it makes intricate nail art attainable for everyone that has the willingness to try, it just takes a little patience. 
Do you stamp?  What's your favorite, Konad, faux-nad or Bundle Monster?

  3. Hi KimsKie's Nails,
    Believe it or not I still don't own a single Konad item, crazy huh, I do want to get some of their special polishes though because most of the comparisons I've seen (especially with the white polish) they do show up a lot better.
