origami nails

this is so much better than my plain red mani from yesterday. the stamping definitely toned down the red and added some really cool visual interest. plus, i'm just a fan of any kind of stamping in gold :).

gold stamping: maybelline color show metallics bold gold
image plate: cheeky xl b

the design kind of reminds me of fans, and the gold on top of the red makes me think of fancy origami paper (like this paper). so there you have it- origami nails! definitely more me :).


so- what do you think about this one? i loved it so much that i didn't want to take it off! but not to fear, there are more gold stamped nails coming soon!

  3. It's beautiful! I hope you can help me... I have problems with stamping. I don't know if I used the good nail polish, but I can't take it off the plates... I have tried with Sally Hansen InstaDri pink (petal pusher) and Silver (sweep); Sally Hansen - Xtreme wear white (on) and Mellow Yellowand Maybelline Color Show Navy (narcissist) and pink (born with it). The only color who worked is Nailtini Bloody Mary, but it wasn't really good. Do you have any advices? Thanks!

    1. Hi, Catherine. Are you using nail polish remover with gelatin or any other moisturizers? I was accidentally doing that at first, and got so frustrated because I couldn't get the image to transfer correctly to the stamp! Make sure it's just remover, or acetone is even better.

      If that doesn't fix the problem, try swiping it different ways- with different amounts of pressure, different directions, even different swipers. Sometimes just messing around with it makes it better. Hope this helps! I know how frustrating stamping can be :S.
