This week's challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was to use a french tip design. I'm not a super-massive fan of french tip stamping, so I decided to cheat a tiny bit heh. I think one of the main reasons I don't like french tip stamping (the typical curved images) is that they kind of get distorted when you're following your nail line, also as full images on newer plates have got larger, so have the tip designs, and this means they look stupid as heck unless my nails are at a certain length, or I use them like I have done today.
I stamped the image from Bundle Monster BM 217 twice on my nails, starting with the tip, and then rotating the tip to try and help it fit. I messed up in a few places, and my index finger is smeared, but I was too easily distracted to re-do them :]
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Color Club - Sweet Pea
Stamp Colour: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Tealy Fast
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM 217
Top Coat: Rimmel 60 Seconds - Clear
Here's what I used:
And here's the base colour: Color Club - Sweet Pea, such an easy formula on all these CC's this was two, easy coats, that leveled themselves out, and there was basically no clean up, and dry time was over before I realised! It looks slightly more dusky in the shade too.
I hope you've all had a good weekend!
