Eventually he'll come home and ruin this moment.
Yes, that is a pez dispenser. I was moisturizing my cuticles when a friend called and asked if I needed any of the Hello Kitty Variety. I mean, is that an actual question? I dug this one out of my stash of HK stuff and snapped a few pictures for this post with her. Eventually, I will do a HK manicure.
In any case, this is what I am really trying to show you. I did this with a stamp, but I am new to stamping and am actually rather bad at it. It probably doesn't help that I do it rarely and with polish that isn't the best for this, but this time it came out salvageable.
I put down three coats of OPI Alpine Snow for a base. I just have to say how much I hate white nail polish because I can't apply it to save my life. Alpine Snow is the best I've worked with, but I would rate my previous bottle of white, China Glaze White on White, as pretty much the same. I like the OPI brush better though. I topped my white with a layer of Poshe and let it dry.
Then I got a package full of frankening bottles and in my excitement I proceeded to ruin my nails. I only had to repaint a couple though, so we were still good! I made myself watch some Star Trek on Netflix so I wouldn't touch anything.
When my polish was finally dry, I stared at my stamping plate and tried to decide what design I wanted to butcher today. I decided something with a little less area involved would be better and went for this one. I used American Apparel's Passport Blue, which seems to be one of my go-to polishes lately. I am definitely going to need a back up bottle. I can't tell you how much I love AA polish, so I'll just tell you that I LOVE American Apparel polish.
My stamping turned out halfway decent this time, at least I think so. However, there was too much white space! Yes, that was what I originally wanted but I'm a fickle creature. I grabbed my dotting tool and some Orly Lucky Duck and added a few dots. They blended really well without being distracting, so I was pleased!
Thanks for reading!
