2true Pro Metallica Stamping

Pink Metallic and Black Stamping


Hey all, so today I was looking forward to trying the stamping design I thought of last night, and in my head it looked good. So after doing all my normal Saturday morning chores, it was nail time!! The two nail polishes I used were 2true Pro Metallica in shade 1 - Aphrodite, a beautiful pink polish, and Pretty Black Matte polish. Although I was not going for a matte look, I love this as a polish for both painting my nails and stamping. So it was looking good when I'd painted my nails and cleaned up. On my left hand I painted my ring finger and thumb matte black, and the other fingers metallic pink, and mixed it up on my right hand by doing the opposite. Then I used Konad plate m63 for the swirly design, stamping black on the pink and pink on the black!!
Now when you see the photo it is a bit of an illusion for the eyes, as at first look they all look the same.

Plate m63



When I saw this flower in the garden this morning, I knew I wanted to use it in my photo, even though is was raining!!



Tried out the new light box I made too :)

Now this has been on my nails for a few hours, (been waiting to get on the pc....I so need a laptop!!)
I'm not to sure if I like it as much. As I said in my head yesterday it looked good, but now I don't think the same. It's not the colours, they are awesome together, I think its because it didn't come out how I thought it would. I would really like to hear your thoughts on this :)
Take care and thanks for reading x x

  1. I'd love to try nail stamping and I have a little Konad stamp I found in Poundland but just can't find the confidence in case I make a mess!

    1. if you have trouble with the normal stamper, get a XL squishy stamper, they make it much easier, especially for beginners xx

  2. I was like that first time, but nail polish remover will always clean up. Try on your little finger first, that might help. x
