Sunday Stamping Challenge--Red and Black

Hi Readers!  I took a little unexpected break yesterday.  Unexpected because the neon gradient I had been working on for a long time yesterday was totally and completely ruined by the person who put the bottle of Seche Vite Base Coate in the row with the Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat! I thought something was up after I applied the Seche to my gradient, it still appeared tacky after a minute and that never happens with my Seche.  I stamped over it anyone blaming the neons.  One nail didn't work out to well so I had to remove the stamping and ug what a mess.  It was then I really looked at the others nails I had put the Seche on and realized they had all smeared.  Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat NEVER smears stamping.  So I looked at my bottle and sure enough it was just base coat ARG!  There was  A LOT of swearing in the kitchen.  I didn't have time to fix it though as I had to take my son for an eye appointment.  By the time I got back home and fixed the mani it was so late I just said forget it.  Lesson learned when you are buying Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat make sure you look at all your bottles especially when you're buying more than one lol!

So today I'm back with the RIGHT Seche Vite!  The theme for today's challenge is red and black and I don't know about you readers but usually red and black draws my minds focus to oriental design.  I was ecstatic to be using my new red Knees Up once again for this mani, and it's super simple but just uses a few stamping plates.
I do love seeing red and black together!
And really I might need to make sure I get a back up bottle of Knees Up which is ALOT easier to find and snag than a back up bottle of Vampire State Building lol!
I used plates from the second Bundle Monster set and an XL Cheeky for this design.  The Bundle Monsters are from BM202 and BM208 and the Cheeky is XL plate A.

I have SO many untried plates and polish.  I really need to get on board with doing a new plate image a day and a new polish a day especially since I have more on the way lol!

As I said before I love seeing red and black together--what are some of your favorite colors combos?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. this is sooooo pretty....I did the same thing with the Seche....I was sooo mad!!!! Now I really check the bottles since I have both LOL

  2. For the Seche issue...been there, done that. I put a dot of polish on the cap so I could tell the difference and never have that happen again :D Love the mani such a beautiful red!

  3. Red & black are the best combo! :)
    Cool stamps!

  4. Awhh bless you grabbing the base coat. I really love these nails though :]
