Only Using Blue - We Stamp On Sundays

This weeks challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was to only use blue. For the most part I was worried about what blue to stamp with. This was after I already painted my nails with LA Colors - Static Electricity, and added glitter, so any dark blues I could stamp with would be too subtle, or look black. So I opted to see how well Essence - Speed Of Light Blue would stamp. 

Overall I'm okay with how It turned out, though the finger is a bit smooshy. I loooove the little sneaks of glitter you get through the pattern, It's just a shame I couldn't capture it better!

Base Coat: Nail RX - Stuck On You
Base Colour: LA Colors - Static Electricity
Glitter: Maybelline Colorama - Blazes Of Blue
Stamp Colour: Essence - Speed Of Light Blue
Image Plate: Bundle Monster - BM19
Top Coat: China Glaze - No Chip Top Coat
2 Coats of glitter!
 





This is the first plate I was obssessed with when I first got my set a few years back, I would try out different designs all the time, but when I had something planned I wanted dogtooth on my nails xD Which is why the plate's so scratched to hell! Damn you metal scraper! I kind of ruined the circle image a little, you can see where the top of the ring's been scraped away over time with the corner of the metal scraper. Boo.


I hope everyone's had a good weekend so far! I'm off my anti-biotics now, and I can't wait till about 6 when I can have a beer! Yum ^_^

    1. Be brave! & just make sure you have a photo before you stamp, that way if you mess up you can keep the swatch photos for a post anyways ^-^

      That's what I do haha.
