Something I Love - We Stamp On Sundays

This week’s challenge over at Adventures In Stamping is 'Something I Love' I knew what I wanted to post for this so it was easy. Especially easy as this is a manicure I had already done. It is something I love though. I love gradients, rainbowness, stamping over gradients, and stamping images like this one.

This image is actually my favourite from the Big SpD-A Dashica plate I own. And that's quite a statement as there are so many awesome ones. But yes, images like this, that show majority of the base are one of my favourite types to use; especially over gradients or multi coloured backgrounds, this image is so detailed too.

Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Rimmel - White
Sponged Colours: Revlon - Sunshine Sparkle
                           George - Buttercup Shine
                           Clubworks Neon Orange
                           P2 - Passion
                           No7 - Poolside Blue
Stamp Colour: BYS - Black Satin
Image Plate: Dashica Big SpD-A
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1


  And a bad photo of them matte (Rimmel Matte Finish), which is actually how I wore them.

This was my first time trying the 'paint on the sponge method' for this gradient, and it turned out really beautiful as the colours worked so well together, but then I decided I wanted them more vibrant - and it went downhill from there, trying to blend each colour into the next became a little bit of a nightmare, and that's why I haven't included any photos of the gradient alone; because it looked like crap!


Bit of a dodgy scan/crop but you can see how pretty it is :]

I hope everyone's had a good weekend!

    1. Now that I think about it yeah! I thinkt the worst formula I've ever had was a nude colour that took like 4 coats and the dry time was awful! I really dislike the wobbly stems on their brushes too!
