Sally Hansen Pacific Blue w/ Stamping

 I hadn't originally planned to stamp over this polish, but I have become quite addicted to stamping. I actually even ordered some more plates and I'm very excited to get to use those. Pacific Blue is one the most gorgeous blues I have ever seen. It's my favorite blue polish that I own, but I hardly wear it because it stains really, really bad. I always end up with smurf fingers at the time of removal. However, I just recently started wearing CND Stickey as a basecoat and can I just say WOW? CND Stickey is the best basecoat I have tried so far. My nails had no staining whatsoever once I took off my polish. That's right. No smurf fingers!

I used two coats of Pacific Blue and stamped with Wet n' Wild Black Creme using Red Angel plate RA - 113.




 This is my favorite stamping mani I have done so far, even though it was far from perfect. I was using the stamper wrong by starting in the middle. The way I was doing it is only good for perhaps smaller images. For full images it is best to start on one side then end on the other. For great stamping tips and ideas you should visit http://www.youtube.com/user/soguesswhat11. She really is awesome with the stamper and loved watching her videos even before I owned any plates. ^_^
