Sometimes I get really crazy ideas in my head. Like the time that, although I pretty much didn’t like neons, I decided that I absolutely had to spend over £100 on a Gelish neon collection. I did it, and look where that got me. Now I’ve got an entire drawer in the Helmer dedicated to neon and I’m obsessed with them even in the middle of winter.
This time around it was stamping. Back in 2012 when I first brought nails on to the blog I invested in a Bundle Monster set and a few Konad plates. This was fine when I was still painting on my natural nubs (and they really were back in those days) but the images weren’t big enough to work on tips and, more to the point, tips and a rock solid stamper do not work well together.
So I started thinking I might want to try stamping again. At first it was just a little thought, an idea, and not enough for me to act on. But that thought started nagging until it wouldn’t go away and I was dreaming about what I could do with specific plates. My poor girlies over in the Digit-al Dozen had to suffer with my endless questions about stampers and plate sizes and stamping polishes and other general idiocies but they put up with me while I made my first purchases.
Best of all, it worked! With a little cajoling and learning of a very strange technique, I can get my still shiny Creative Shop Stamper to stamp a half decent image on a tip. And it works beautifully on my natural nails. Be prepared to see a lot more stamping round here.
