#StampingSaturday: Flamingos

Happy Saturday y'all! Today I took the hubs on his first ever trip to Ikea so we could get some closet systems for our new place. Living in NYC space is at a premium so everything has to be super organized! Needless to say, hubs was not thrilled with Ikea, and I don't think he wants to go back anytime soon. 

Today I've got a really fun look for you, that I've been obsessed over lately. I just do not want to take it off at all. I started with a base of Illyarian Polish Sand Castles. This is a beautiful beige base filled with holographic gold particles. I absolutely adore it. Sand Castles dries very quickly, so I used three thin coats for full coverage. 




I've been obsessed with flamingos lately, so I wanted to do them on my nails! They just scream summer to me, can't get enough. I used three different stamps from MoYou Tropical Collection 06 and 16. The pink is China Glaze Pool Party. For the main flamingo on my ring finger I filled in the flamingo with China Glaze Pool Party and the beak is OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-go?




So there it is. My flamingo isn't great as I managed to smear him during the application of my decal, but overall, I'm really happy with this look. Be sure to check out the other stamped looks below and feel free to join in!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. It was great, a little gritty, but nothing some top coat can't fix.
