Fun Sunday: Adventures In Stamping

Hi. I'm back! So for this week's Fun Sunday it's all about nails! Some of you might have heard that there's a group on Facebook called Adventures In Stamping and some of you might even be in it. For those who don't know about it, it's an awesome community of ladies that are into stamping nail art and every week has a theme or a challenge. Everybody posts their themed mani on Sunday and then we can enjoy all the great photos and comment on them. If you are into stamping and are interested, you can check it out here.

This week's theme was an all-blue stamping manicure. It's my first week in this group and what better way to start it than having my favorite color as a theme. I used Essie Coat Azure as a base color and did the stamping with my trusty China Glaze First Mate. Seriously this polish is amazing! It's so pigmented and great for stamping. I used my Born Pretty plate m73 for this design. 

 I'm really happy with how this turned out. It looks much better in person and I don't know why it didn't photograph properly. One thing I've learned since I've started this blog is that nail art is so much harder to photograph than plain colored nails. Maybe some of you reading this have some tips to share. Please comment below! 

This was the first time I was able to do a full stamping mani without messing it up. It's still not perfect, but it looks pretty good to me. I also managed to stamp twice on my wide thumb nail without doing a big mess. I have to thank this amazing group on Facebook because I've learned so much from them. It's also a big motivation to have a theme and do a design every week. I'm so glad I joined! I wish you all a very fun and awesome Sunday!
