Nail Fail: My first stamping experience!

So last week I shared a nail art tutorial using my Bundle Monster stamping plates, which you can see HERE, and I think it turned out pretty well (unlike my first stamping experience)!  Today I wanted to start something new and share any nail fails that I might have for fun and to document my progress of learning a new nail art technique!

So I decided to try out some different polishes and designs to see what type of polishes would work for stamping.

And here is the end result...
The base color on my nails is Zoya Reece.

So yea...some polishes stamped better than others but I was definitely the reason why some of the designs didn't transfer on to the nail correctly.  I'm really excited to play around with my stamping plates more and I definitely want to pick up some more sets!

What are your favorite brand of stamping plates?  Also, what are your favorite brand of polishes to use for stamping?

Thanks for reading; follow and share if you like!


  1. You did good! I just started getting into stamping. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri works great for stamping, because it's thick. I use Winstonia Store plates, but want to try Konad. And...I still suck at the full nail stamps. I'm better with the small images. I fed need more practice. :)

    1. I really want to try Konad too but they're a little too pricey for me at the moment. Thanks for the tip! I'll have to get some of the Insta-Dri polishes. I'll need to check out those Winstonia plates. I'm kind of obsessed with stamping plates at the moment. :P I'm better with larger images and absolutely suck at the small ones! I think it might be my polish though.
