Golden stamping on red, I feel like I'm cheating...

 
The base color is one coat of the very well pigmented Butter London Knees Up, and I had visions of painting some golden pattern on it, not flowers. But neither my brush nor my paint wanted to co-operate and after admitting defeat I got ready for a new defeat, stamping. I rarely stamp and I assumed it was one of those days...
I chose a pattern on a GCOCL plate number D01 and as my stamping polish I chose Barry M Foil Effects in gold. I started with my right hand, and lo and behold, it looked all right and wow it was quick. I continued with my left hand, and I could say that I deliberately placed the rose like that on the index to make room for the dots, but that wouldn’t be quite true LOL
I love to see stamping manis on others, but I didn’t enjoy this one on myself, I didn’t feel it was “mine”. So the next day I redid it with a freehand pattern, and now everything worked as it should. I'll show that one some day...
Grundfarven er den velpigmenterede Butter London Knees Up, og jeg havde ideer om at male et guld mønster på det, ikke blomster. Men hverken min pensel eller farven ville samarbejde, og efter at jeg havde erkendt mit nederlag, gjorde jeg mig klar til et nyt – stamping! Jeg stamper jo aldrig, og var sikker på, at det var en af de dage, hvor intet vil lykkes.
Jeg valgte et rosenmønster på en GCOCL plade, nummer D01, og jeg brugte Barry M Foil Effects i guld til at stampe med. Jeg begyndte men højre hånd, og det så da helt godt ud og gik superhurtigt. Derefter fortsatte jeg med venstre hånd, og jeg kunne jo sige at jeg med vilje placerede rosen på pegefingeren så det blev plads til prikker, men det ville ikke være helt sandt ;)
Jeg elsker at se stamping på andres negle, men jeg kunne slet ikke nyde denne mani, jeg følte ikke den var ”min”. Den næste dag lavede jeg det om med et frihånds mønster i guld, og nu ville alt samarbejde, den skal jeg nok vise en dag...

  18. aww Maria, the stamping turned out beautiful! I love Knees Up, it's just the most gorgeous red, and it pairs so well with the gold. But I admit it's rather unusual to see you stamping. I'm searching my memory, but I think this is the first time since I started following you that I have seen it. :P

    i think i know what you mean about konading vs freehand nail art.. i have konad and plates and all that stuff, but somehow freehand nail art is more interesting to me too. although i always enjoy stamping nail designs on other blogs :)
