Nail Stamping

This just in: nail stamping is hard.

Ever since my Bundle Monster set arrived I’ve been playing with stamping with mixed results. And by mixed I mean terrible. It’s hard! Lining up the stamp is a visually tricky business.

Today I decided to ditch the disappointing duochrome (more like a don’t-o-chrome, LOLZ) and give a full nail plate a shot.

This is a “La Fasta” Hot Wheels car, 2 layers of NYC “French Tip White,” 2 coats of Wet & Wild Fastdry “Silvivor,” stamped with Bundle Monster BM19 in Nina Ultra Pro “Black.”

Not as neat as I’d hoped but passable. I’ll get better with practice, I’m sure. And my clean-up skills still leave something to be desired. Oh well.

About Smapte

I crochet. I crochet a lot. My speciality is amigurumi dolls based on pop culture entertainment, such as LOST, Star Trek, Mad Men and Firefly. I also crochet beanie hats with food items on them such as pancakes, sushi, burgers, spaghetti, or whatever sounds hat-worthy. Visit me at ThatThingILike.wordpress.com or Xanadoodle.wordpress.com.
