Love stinks and so does this mani!

Hi Everyone!!! Okay love doesn't always stink and this manicure isn't as bad as some of them I've done but holy cow this should look so much better than it does.  A few days ago over in the Adventures In Stamping group Kim B posted this amazing manicure she did with gel polish and some stamping.  All her mani's are pretty awesome but I just loved the one she did.  She used some Dashica plates and DRK-A and I was like hey I think I can pull something like this off.

Shake My Head.  This is the same moment when you watch figure skating on tv and then say hey we should go figure skating.  As if you're going to be able to throw a triple sow cow or a double axle LOL!  I mean it is just not happening!  I didn't even take a lot of pics of this mani because A I was too tired to actually even change my polish let alone stamp on it tonight and B it took me freaking forever!

Awhile back I got a wonky Milani White On. Instead of the fabulous full coverage in one coat bottle I got a watered down need a zillion layers for opacity bottle.

Just like Kim I used Sally Hansen Wined Up to stamp with but it was not easy.  I had some smearing and some dragging AND I could get all of the image on my swear to transfer.

I used BM317 on the index, DRK-A on the swear and ring and CH15 on the pinkie

If you've seen Kim's you know mine does not hold a candle to hers.

I think I'm starting to have issues with my nails being so long and curved for my beloved Konad double stamper.  I have an XL Stamper on the way let's hope it helps.

Valentine's Day is around the corner, hopefully I'll come up with some redeeming mani's before then!

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


  1. I think it looks pretty ...I am very new to stamping and it's not as easy as I thought it would be.

  2. I haven't seen the one by Kim B (who's Kim B?) but I like yours very much! It is fun, hot and so very valentines!!!
