Stamping Fail with Gold Glitter to Make It All Better

A new year is all about trying new things and doing things that scare you and stamping is exactly one of those things for me. It still freaks me out to do and the thought of ruining a manicure with a horrific stamping job drives me insane so I rarely do it, but Julep-Olivia was looking a little plain for me so I decided to use my never-before-tried gold Konad stamping polish and m73 stamping plate from Born Pretty to try and create something more interesting.

So, I ended up double stamping each nail because I messed one up and then just decided to go with it since I didn’t feel like painting my nails again. I topped off my disaster with Sephora – It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat and things looked more “artistic”.

    1. Thank you Julie! From far away they looked pretty neat, up close was a bit blurred, but overall it turned out!

  6. I think they turned out great! I never remember to get my stamping kit out, but it's a great way to revive a polish job before it's time to remove it.

    1. Yes, that's what I was thinking! That it looked like some sort of reptilian print! I'm so glad I could salvage my stamping fail because I would have been so annoyed...

  10. I think I like the Sephora 18 gold topcoat best - I love that it's fine pieces and not too chunky.

    1. Yes, I like it a lot more than the chunky style since I can use it in a manicure like this one and not have it look too distracting.

  11. I think it ended up looking really cool! I tried the "konad" stamping once too and utterly failed so I'm hesitant to try again...it's a good thing I have like 25 plates. *eyeroll*
