Stamping Saturdays: Gold Scallops on Teal

Welcome back to the second edition of Stamping Saturdays! I'm so excited that my friends and I are making this a regular thing. Basically we have too many stamping plates and we sometimes forget about them, so by having a weekly dedicated post we are forcing ourselves to have all the fun!

Today I started off with a base of China Glaze Exotic Encounters. If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for teal in any form. This was the first true teal polish I owned, its from the On Safari fall collection, which is my all time favorite collection ever! Not kidding. I own the whole set. 




Now for a quick story! This manicure almost never made it on the blog, because I spilled nail polish all over my dining table while stamping these babies. Basically it started with me dumping my glass of water over in the middle of stamping my right hand. In my panic to clean up the water, I accidentally knocked over my polish and didn't notice till I came back with paper towels for the water. I literally had polish all over both hands, in my hair, and covering a corner of my table. Thankfully I managed to save the table and the manicure. Sadly a little chunk of hair had to get snipped, but it isn't noticeable at all. I hope. So to sum it up, it was a huge disaster.




I stamped these with China Glaze Passion using the MoYou London Suki Collection 07 plate.

What do you think of this combo?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. I liked your design! I thought it was great. Wasn't the point that we all are practicing and getting better and using our stuff?

  2. I think that these turned out really beautiful. I think the design makes me think of like like fringe-y flapper dresses which may not really make sense but then I also thought of green and I thought of The Great Gatsby. Clearly, I have ADD. That is quite a story about the making of this mani. I don't think I've had quite a messy mishap yet, but I'm sure it will happen eventually. I do have quite a few acetona mishaps on some wood furniture...so sad. And I thoroughly agree that the On Safari collection is pretty much spectacular. I think it's tied with the Jessica Gelato Mio! collection as my favorite for that year.

    1. I didn't even think of it in the Gatsby context but now that you say that, I totally see it! I don't have alot of exposure to Jessica. I wish I did.
