Oh stamping. Made to look so easy by bloggers everywhere, seemingly impossible for me to accomplish. Every time I try, the stamp doesn't transfer properly. I was reading a post on /r/redditlacqueristas and someone mentioned to ROLL the stamp on the plate rather than the pressing down I was trying. I gave it a shot and I have to say, it worked a whole lot better.
For this mani I started off with two coats of Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme as my Rimmel Black Satin is getting a little thick. It's decent, not quick as good at the Rimmel but did the job and was opaque in two coats, which is really all you can ask for. Once dry (completely dry, otherwise the base will stick to the stamp and you will be sad), I used Bundle Monster plate BM-215 and Nfu-Oh 61 to stamp on the snakeskin pattern. I've had the silver holo for a while and I'm constantly disappointed with it. It just isn't that holographic. It's reasonable thick though so does make for a good stamp. If you want a holo, Glitter Gal is soo much better.
The Verdict: The stamping here isn't perfect but it's my best effort yet and the grungy look kinda works with the pattern. I still am so sad at Nfu-Oh 61 for not being very holo though :(
