Thanks girls Smile

Just posted the Hitman nails on my blog here.

I've got a calendar with all my posts for the rest of January planned out. I know that's only 10 days, but I'm pretty proud of myself lol.

I foolishly said I was going to attempt a stamping manicure at least once a month. Here's January's attempt:

Thanks Sarah Smile

You leave some polish out to dry, and once it's almost dry you can use a cocktail stick to pull it into strands. That's a terrible explanation lol. If you google it there's probably loads of tutorials (would have been a good idea for me to look at one of those...).

That is rather nice. Is that a technique that you devised yourself Sam? It's a cracking idea, waaaaaay too advanced for me!

Very nice - when I tried it that was most certainly not what it ended up looking like. Mine was a complete Dogs Dinner! And the cleanup was horrendous;)

I have that plate too. But your beautiful finish puts my efforts to shame! I love those colours, I would never have put these two colours together, I usually reach for the silvers if I want a metallic stamp but this is stunning. Will be fishing my golds out next time, thank you!

Thank you everyone! Smile

LoolaBeanbag, it's not a technique of my creation (very few things are...imagination is something I lack lol). I first saw it on blogs a few months ago, but I generally avoid trying out new things because I'm boring like that. I've made a list of techniques that I've thus far dodged though, and I'm trying to work my way through them all! I recommend the Barry M Gold Foil for stamping (just make sure it's the foil one and not just the gold...that one's rubbish).

Hanspan, clean up was rather a nightmare... I guess it'd be sensible to tape your fingers or something like people do for water marbling. You know, people who haven't been defeated by such techniques...

I can be pretty useless at stamping as well. I did a manicure back in September using the piano and music image and OH MY WORD it was a nightmare. Whichever way I was scraping, I just seemed to scrape half the design off. It took like four attempts for each nail. It was soul destroying.

Thanks both Smile

Ninjajane...I tried some stamping again the other night and I literally couldn't get anything on the stamper lol. So it's rather hit or miss at the moment. In that heart manicure though I used a Konad stamping polish and I guess that does make a difference!
