For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion (3 coats). This is a terrible polish. The formula is chalky, the polish takes ages to dry, the polish is prone to chipping, and the colour is just awful. 😧
Nail colours like this one always look best when you see as little as possible of them. And that’s why I decided to stamp!
I used the super beautiful Sugar Bubbles 031 stamping plate. The dark blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight.
Whilst I didn’t love the mani, I think it looked alright. But I do love marine manis, and I think the sea, beach and flip flops theme fits the season. 🙂
Another thing: If you’re wondering how stamping works, I’ve done a tutorial on everything you need to know – and everything I wish I had known when I started to stamp. Don’t worry, you’ll figure out stamping in an hour, but the tutorial will answer all the questions that you will have about stampers, scrapers, polishes, stamping plates, extra stuff you might need and everything else really! The tutorial is here.
And I also did a post on how I made my own stamping polish. This post can be found here.
