Stamping?!  Eeeeks

I've seen so many cute manis using the 2012 Bundle Monster plates I absolutely had to have them.  I probably should have practiced with my Salon Express stamping set a little more before purchasing the new bundle monster plates, but I have no patience!!  I dabbled a little with the SE stamping set as seen in Pinkin' it Up, I had a little issue with streaking and the designs are pretty boring.  My new buddy, Nicole from Polish me Please, who is the QUEEN OF STAMPING suggested the BM plates.  I hummed and hawed about getting them because I'm cheap and I hadn't mastered the SE plates, but Nicole's mani's convinced me - are you still here looking at my blog?!?!  GO there immediately, here's the link again (Polish me Please), she is amazing!!  Back?  Okay, scroll down to see the train wreck or as Nicole calls it the disasticure!

Here's my practice run on yesterday's mani - I was all "this is easy" - HA.  It's so hard to get the design straight, which I'm hoping will come with more practice!

  1. I think they look great! It takes some time and some polish works better than others, I still don't have it "nailed" yet either but it takes practice!

  2. Thank you!! I need to invest in some Konad stamping polishes, I'm just so cheap!!
