Circles Or Dots - We Stamp On Sundays

This week’s stamping challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was to use circles or dots, I was still in a blue mood after the last challenge, and I think it is because of all the bad weather that's been going on.

So in my blue mood, I wanted to try one of my new polishes, and ended up using two. I started with LA Colors - Static Electricity (to see the base go here), and layered a coat of the super sheer Radiation over that. I wanted to try stamping with Sinful Colors - See You Soon, and tried with a polka dot stamping image, but that didn't work out too well, so I used this "reverse polka dot" image from Bundle Monster BM21.
Base Coar: La Femme
Base Colour: LA Colors - Static Electricity
LA Colors - Radiation
Stamp Colour: Sinful Colors - See You Soon
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM21
Top Coat: Rimmel - Clear
 Base colour without stamping:
 Here's what I used:

For those of you that don't know there were some crazy flash floods going on recently. Thursday I went to the Metro Centre to shop for Scott's mam, and the first port of call was food. As I was tucking in; we heard a weird noise, and downstairs the Metro Centre had sprung a leak, and started flooding. Because our burgers were so good we carried on eating, laughing off the little bit of water. Even though the thunder and lightning was still going crazy, making the lights flicker like mad.

It was only when we started trying to shop, and seen that pretty much everything was closed, and areas were blocked off that we realised how bad it really was. And after Scott & his brother got their mam her birthday present we tried to leave.. Oh boy it was such a horrible journey home. Going one way; and then having to turn around cause the road was like a freaking river, no one was giving anyone any helpful information. And what would've been a 40 minute (max) car ride, it took us 4 hours odd to get home. Horrible! I feel a little worse for Andy, Scott's brother, who then had to drive home to Hartlepool. Ouch.

Story over! I hope everyone has had a good weekend :]

    1. I get them from a shop called Boyes, I think it's a northern store though as I've only ever seen them in Chester-le-street, Darlington, Northallerton, or Richmond.

  16. Do these full nail images cover your whole nail or do you have to double stamp? These turned out perfectly!

    1. Just one stamp. If my nails are a little bit longer I can usually squeeze it into one stamp, but I always have to double stamp my thumb. Thank you =]
