I got a new stamping plate from Born Pretty Store! It's so cute, with candy and cupcakes and coffee... Let's start with coffee (something I swear by):
I used Essence "Irresistible" as my base and stamped with (for lack of a better brown stamping polish) Essence "Caramel Brownie". Then I taped off the tips of my nails and applied more "Caramel Brownie". As a finishing touch, I applied some striping tape that Kim from OverallBeauty.com sent me. (Look in the sidebar for a discount coupon code!) It's the perfect colour!
Next up is some candy and cupcakes!
First I applied some Essie "Blanc" and then I sponged a gradient with some neons (which did not really transfer to camera): Mod Lacquer "Energize" and "Stimulate" and Dolce Ragazza neon yellow. Then I stamped over it with white. It didn't turn out perfectly, but it's a happy mani anyway.
