Tonight on the blog, I have some stamping nail art for you!
I wasn't super happy with how this came out because the stamping isn't very visible over the glitter base. The idea was good I think, but the execution was poor.
Here's what I used:
Lots of polishes! From left to right, Essie Protein Base, Zoya Tilda, Zoya Staasi, Zoya Jesi, Zoya Binx, Zoya Willa, and Seche Vite.
I started with the base coat, and once that was dry I put Zoya Tilda on my index, pinkie, and thumb. I did two coats of Tilda and then topped with Seche Vite. Moving on to the middle fingers, I sponged on Staasi, Jesi, and Binx with a makeup sponge. I went over each nail 3 times to achieve opacity. I wish I had taken a picture of how it looked before I stamped it because it was so pretty!
After my glitter based had dried most of the way, I stamped with Zoya Willa over it using Cici&Sisi plate #8. Here's a macro of the stamping. You can see the details better here:
Overall, I liked the mani, it just didn't turn out the way I had pictured in my head. I decided to share anyway because I made a promise to myself that I would share my fails as well as my wins.
