My First Stamp-icure!

I finally sat down to give stamping a try. I was a little nervous at first because I didn't want to mess up and have to redo polish coats and that whole process again. Naturally I would try pink first :)  I painted my nails with OPI's La Paz-itively Hot which is an AMAZING hot pink:

It took 3 thin coats to reach opacity. The formula is easy to work with, and has minimal cleanup. Here's a different view:

I took this picture with a flash so that you could see the blue micro glitter that shimmers on the nails. LOVE IT! Next I wanted to jazz it up so I used Konad image plate M65:

I used Konad black special polish to stamp with. When stamping you have to press the stamper on the plate very firm, and roll it evenly but very firmly on your nail to get an even consistent pattern. I messed up on my thumb nail which was the first nail that I did :(  :

But after that one I learned my lesson and got the hang of it and I love it! You'll see plenty of stamping from me!

Not to shabby for my first stamp-icure!
