The Sky's The Limit - We Stamp On Sundays

'The Sky's The Limit' was the challenge this week over at Adventures In Stamping. At first I had no idea what to do, or where to start. But then I decided to use the rainbow image from the second set of Bundle Monster plates that I've never tried. The idea was to stamp in white, over a cloudy looking base, but I painted my nails white, and then realised :P So it was time to attack a different plan of action.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Rimmel - Tip Whitener
Sponged Colours: Essence - Speed Of Light Blue
                              George - Cloudless Sky
Stamping Colours: BYS - Black Satin
                              Konad Special White Polish
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM201
Glitter: Etos - Effect Nails 03-04
Rainbow Colours: Nail Art Pens
Top Coat: China Glaze - No Chip Top Coat
Here's the base of sponged colours before stamping, plus a coat of the little bottle of Etos glitter I won from Ingie, trying not to get the big pieces of glitter on the nail (which was extremely hard!)
Because my black stamping polish is starting to get a bit goopy it wouldn't pick up the image properly :( So I decided to mix a bit of black in with a stripe of white on the plate so the image would pick up. Then I decided to fill inthe rainbow =]
Then because it was feeling a tiny bit bumpy after top coat I decided to do a matte coat, which I am really loving. Looks so powdery and magical xD
Here's what I used:

    1. :D wow thanks! & the stripers I got from eBay, they were really cheap, I got a small set for myself, and then my cousin also bought me a set. They're a bit hit and miss with the brushes, but most of them are really good.

    1. :D Thank you! & The only nail art pens I have are really cheap ones from ebay, from Hong Kong. I think I paid about £10 for 24 a couple years back, and for christmas my cousin bought me more ^_^ The brushes are a little bit hit and miss, but nothing super bad, and the glitter sometimes gets stuck in the nib of the dotter, but overall they're pretty good :]
