Tonight, I opted for some double stamping, because I could not decide what colors I wanted to use. Usually, this results in a bunch of nonsense, because I never know when to leave well enough alone. Tonight, though, it turned out pretty okay!
Here’s what I used:
From left to right: Zoya Cynthia, Mundo de Unas Light Gray, Mundo de Unas Old Pink, Pueen Buffet 59 and 73, HK Girl, China Glaze quick dry, Essie Grow Stronger, and my Messy Mansion marshmallow stamper.
After a coat of Grow Stronger, I put down two coats of Cynthia. I was kind of disappointed:
I expected a dark blue-green color, but it just looked black. I’m hoping that if the sun is out, it will show the color more. I always get too optimistic about dark colors that are beautiful in the bottle, but let me down on the nail by looking black. If I wanted black, I would paint black. Ugh.
Anyways…I used Pueen 73 and MdU Light Gray and stamped my first layer:
I could have stopped here and I would have been happy. But, enough is never enough, so I stamped again using Pueen 59 and MdU Old Pink:
Unlike many of my double stamping manis, I like this one. It doesn’t seem overly busy. The gray is subtle enough that it does not end up looking muddled. At least, that’s what I think! Now, let’s see if these last more than a day…not too likely since I have to get some yard work done tomorrow and my gardening gloves have a hole in them!
Thanks for stopping by!
