I have seen such beautiful examples of stamping lately. I love stamping. I started off always using black or silver to stamp, mostly because it showed up so well. I recently saw some examples of stamping in colour almost the same as the base colour and it just looked gorgeous. It is so subtle yet striking.
I tried to attempt something similar. When I started I was just going to test it. I wasn’t even sure if the polish I used would stamp at all. The more I did the more I loved it. I made a few mistakes and didn’t correct them because I was really just playing around. In the end I regret not going back and fixing them because I loved these! I am hoping no one else notices these mistakes 😉
I used Revlon – Super Nature as a base and on my ring finger I used Sinful Colors – San Francisco as accent. I then used the Super Nature to stamp on the San Francisco and also the San Francisco to stamp on the Super Nature. Make sense? It really is quite subtle and I struggled to photograph these to look as good as they did in real life. So this will have quite a few pictures.

I will definitely be trying this again. I am already thinking of all the colours I could try. What do you think of it?
I used the Essence Stampy Set which is only available from Dischem. The Stampy Set is R39.95 and additional stamping plates are R19.95. I will do a separate post on that soon.
Thanks for reading!
