Hi! I can't believe it's June already! Time to break out my neons and holos!
Today, I'm going to show you my first proper try at stamping! I have messed around with stamping before but I've never really done a full mani with stamping so I borrowed my sisters nails to try it on! I will say up front that it was a fail! I had an idea in my head of what I wanted and it looked so good! If you could see what was in my head instead of what actually appeared on my sisters nails, you'd be super impressed ;)
I used two coats of nails inc Elizabeth Street as a base, which is a gorgeous light pink polish, I love this one!
I then used models own ice neon in pukka purple.
and models own hyper gel in blue glint.
The stamping set I used is a cheap one I bought on eBay about three years ago so I will say I've read loads of blog posts and watched loads of YouTube tutorials about stamping and I think with better tools, I would get a better result so if you haven't tried stamping please don't let my attempts put you off :D
I used a 'bubble' pattern and the different polishes to stamp all over the nail.
It looks a bit more like confetti than bubbles though! (well that's how I choose to see it, colourful spaghetti might be a better description ;))
My overall experience is that I love stamping and I want to get better at it but it isn't as easy as it looks! I will get a bigger and squishier stamper and I'll also get some better plates and practise with various polishes and designs and stuff so I'll keep blogging about my stamping attempts until I finally nail it! Any tips or anything please leave them in the comments, if you have blogged about stamping or done a YouTube tutorial or anything, feel free to link to it!
