Birthstone - Peridot - We Stamp On Sundays

Hi all.

I would say happy Monday but this means I will be back at work when this posts and that means I'll be melting as the aircon is broken, and i'm almost certain the heating is actually on.

This is my first time in a long while taking part in Adventures In Stamping We Stamp On Sundays, so although I didn't have any amazing ideas I wanted to give it a shot.

This challenge was for Birthstones, and mine is Peridot, so I reached for the first green I thought of and had a think of what I could do.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Models Own - Golden Green
Flakies: Golden Rose Scale Effects - 04
Stamping Colour: Barry M - Gold Foil
Image Plate: Faunad M28 (Konad M33, and Bundle Monster BM318
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Had As Nails
I'm a little bummed the gold kind of gets lost, and if you were to see these from a distance you probably wouldn't even think there was any nail art on!

Here's what I used:

The fauxnad plate M38 is actually the copy of Konad M33 so I'm not too certain why it's named differently. But a big thank you to Susana for sending this to me in one of our swaps! And here is the base before stamping:


  1. Hi ya

    Nails look good but know what you mean about the pattern not standing out, I've had that before.

    What's stamping on Sundays?


    1. Thanks!

      Sometimes I just don't think about the stamping colour before I do it! heh.

      Stamping on Sunday is a little weekly challenge for a group on Facebook called Adventures In Stamping.

      You should check them out! It's great!

  2. Wowzer! Everything about this is stunning! <3 :)

  3. This is a perfect combo. Flakes make it look so unusual.

  4. I agree - this is very pretty and delicate due to the ever-so-subtle stamping design. Love the way to placed one piece of decorative glitter on some nails! Your ideas are great.
