Major Stamping Fail W/ Coverup semi-success!


So I have to start by saying that not every manicure will be a great success. Half the fun is the journey and well even though this manicure sucked I had fun in the process and learned a very valuable lesson. Plus it sorta reminds me of trying to coverup a really bad tattoo with another tattoo but it never really looks that much better! So a very big factor on why I had such a hard time with the stamping? Stupid me didn't realize that about 20 mins before I started to stamp I slathered on some cuticle cream all over my cuticles and even though they seemed fine to me at the time my nails were too greasy and the stamping didn't want to stick. It was just painful. I feel a bit bad showing how badly my stamping was but I'm hoping that I can help prevent anyone from doing this since it didn't really dawn on me till I really made a mess of my nails. So at one point I just gave up I just kept stamping and re-stamping. It was so bad that I decided I needed to do a coverup. I pulled out some of the new color club polishes I bought from the wicked sweet collection and went crazy. I had to use a white nail polish under them since they are rather sheer and weren't showing up at first. I should have left the green off because it looked better without it cause you could see more stamping underneath and it looked more like flowers on a lattice. But like always i have a way of overdoing stuff. I ended up using 4 different colors from the wicked sweet collection and the scented polish didn't really bother me, i sorta liked it. Okay enough talk here's the damage I did.
