As you can see, being able to transfer a stamped image to your nail doesn't create awesomeness! Awesome requires expertise in other facets of polish. You need to develop an eye for colors to combine colors as a backdrop to your stamping. You also have to be able to polish your nails neatly (or clean up real good). The part I struggle with is the composition of the design using the right polish colors and combination of stamps to take it from ok to awesome. Even though my efforts are hit and miss, I will continue to do the weekly challenges. They help expand your skills and make you work outside of your comfort zone. My goal is to be able to create designs that wow. I was proud of last weeks challenge in my last blog post. It turned out the way I envisioned it.
