Have you had a good week so far? I really don’t even know where the first half of this week went. It’s probably a good thing :P.
I have more nail art goodies to show you from Born Pretty Store. This time it is a stamping guide. I was very excited to give this a try and when guide 002 landed in my hands…..I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. I gave it some thought and finally came up with an idea. Then another idea. So I have 2 fun designs to show you today.
I started with 2 coats of China Gaze – Pixilated on all my nails. Once that was dry I stamped on my ring finger using Mundo de Unas – Black and the lace image on BP-L020. I then used the long triangle guide and the same image to stamp on the rest of my nails. I topcoated and that was that.
Of course once I started the ideas just kept coming so I did something else too.
Here I started with 2 coats of Color Club – Silver lake on all my nails and left that to dry completely. I then used the negative space image on Lina make your mark 3 and Mundo de Unas – Dark grey combined with the circle guide to stamp the big dark grey dots and randomly placed them on my nails. I then used the stripe image on BP-L020 and Mundo de Unas – Barbie with the circle guide again and then double stamped the circle stripes on the dark grey circles. I really need to master the double stamping though so I can line them up properly. I topcoated and voila!
What do you think? Do you have any stamping guides? Do you want to try them? I have been wanting guides for the longest time but the minute I had one I was stumped with what to do. One inspiration hit though I couldn’t stop thinking of what else I could do. The stamp guides work beautifully and the images are really nice and fun too. My only real gripe is that I wish the images were a bit smaller or at least the option of smaller versions. Big images have a place but I think smaller ones are needed. I used the circle guide here and it is one of the smallest ones on my guide. It was still pretty big and if my nails were shorter I am not sure if it would’ve fit. So an option for smaller circles would be great. Otherwise, 5 stars for these guides from me.
