I have stepped up my practicing with stamps. I now have the new Bundle Monster and MASH plate sets. Between the two, I have found a number of images that are not to girly. I like the geometric patterns and a bunch of others. Practicing is made easier this week by applying Sensationail Blue Yonder gel polish. As long as I use a non acetone remover I can stamp, take it off and restanp with out messing with redoing the base color. The gel polish is hard to get neat around the cuticles. Since it is a dark blue, any mistakes show up like a sore thumb.
I also received the new extra large stamper from Ninja Polish. It works as good as the YouTube video I watched on it. I can press the stamper directly down on the image without having to roll the stamper. You also press it down on the nail the same way. I was able to get more consistent full transfers without smudging. It is a bargin for $8($11 with shipping). It also cleans up real easy.
In order to create nail designs that are as gorgeous as the ones Laurie from Dressed Up Digits creates, I need to work on my polish application and learn to do gradients. Also trying to figure out stamping colors that compliment the base colors requires some experimentation.
