I didn't plan on doing nails today, nor did I plan on doing a blog post even though I do have some mani pics lying in wait. But that all changed.
About a month ago I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy colored stamping polish. I've always only had black and white and used regular polishes for my stamping. Sometimes they would work, and sometimes they wouldn't.
After I asked around for who had the best ones at the best price, I eventually decided on Mundo de Unas. I didn't mess around, either. I bought 2 black, 2 white and 10 colors. And I've been waiting pretty impatiently for them to get here. A month is a long time.
Today they arrived. After I stared at them for awhile I decided to do something I have always wanted to do. It's not anything super exciting, but for whatever reason, I have always wanted to do plain old pink roses on a burgundy background.
You can't see it in the picture, but the Square Hue Surf Gypsy I used for the base has some very fine glitter in it. It's a beauty all on its own.
I went through all of my plates, and quite a few of them have some type of rose on them, but this BM XL07 plate from Bundle Monster has just what I wanted. A plain old rose. No leaves, just a rose.
The MDU polish is amazing. It has a really nice consistency for stamping, in my opinion much better than Konad. It also felt like I needed less of it which is awesome. In the past it seems like whatever black and white stamping polish I buy it's gone in a blink.
I think it literally took me less than 90 seconds to stamp this. Even with a large area to fill on the plate, none of the polish got scraped out of the design which I sometimes have trouble with using normal polish.
If I wasn't so afraid I'd break my nose, I'd punch myself square in the face for not buying colored stamping polish before now. I'm thinking my stamping life is changed for the better.
My day is made.
