Experimenting with Stamping Polish

I really like this dark brown polish – it looks like rich dark chocolate on my fingernails!  But I don’t know what to do with it, so this time I tried stamping it with a bright color.  I chose a Red Angel image plate – RA 120 – since they are etched a little bit deeper, and I first painted it with Konad White, scraped it, then painted it with Konad Yellow, scraped again, and stamped.  This actually worked very well, the white underneath made the yellow really pop and the pattern was crisp.  Al really liked this manicure, but me – not so much.  I like the image pattern a lot, I Love the dark brown polish, and I’m very happy with the way the 2-color stamping looks, but the final look just doesn’t thrill me.  I will definitely use the stamping technique again but with different colors.  I still don’t know what to do with the dark brown polish.  As much as I like it, I’m afraid that it will be one of my stash that just doesn’t get used very much.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
