I am so glad I am in "Adventures in Stamping" group on facebook. They have a Sunday challenge that we vote on each week. It gets me to try things that I might not have thought of or have never attempted. This week was silver or gold. I used BB Couture 45 Caliber for the silver. I knew it would be a good polish for stamping. It is almost a one coat polish. The black is of unknown origin. I applied 45 Caliber to the entire nail. After that dried, I took my black striping polish and drew a diagonal line freehand across each nail. Then it was easy to fill in the rest with the black polish. I learned that from the nail tech that does my toes. I always watch how she does things. I cleaned up as best I could and applied a coat of SV. Now the stamping fun starts. I picked a design that didn't require it to be oriented in a special way. I stamped the black over the silver first aligning the image along the border between colors. After all 10 were done, I did the silver over the black the same way. I cleaned up again and put a final coat of SV. Unfortunately, no mater how good I do, It will never look as good on my hands as it would on one of the ladies of the group. I use my hands a lot for work, so I have tough hands with many scars. My daughter thinks I have super powers because I can grab hot things from the stove without pot holder. I have a practice hand that I have used for other nail art stuff, but it is more fun to do it on a live hand. The next Mrs. Guy Polish will have to be a polish addict too!
I love this mani and will wear it until is starts to chip. I spent to much time to take it off.
