China Glaze Kinetic Candy With Rose Stamping

Heeeeeeey! Today I thought I'd lighten the mood a little and go for another attempt at stamping :-)

First I used China Glaze Kinetic Candy as the base colour. This is a gorgeous minty/blue (probably not the best description) that covers in one coat and lies beautifully even. Due to my OCD I had to do two coats for the swatches but it honestly didn't need two coats.

Then I used Drikk Stamping Plate DRKA and Essence Shopping In Soho to stamp a delicate pink rose pattern over each nail. I wanted to go for a classical shabby chic kind of look.

Preeeetty roses :-)

Slightly smudged by the top coat, I must remember to go more lightly with the brush next time

The inspiration to the look

So there you have my second stamping post, I think I'm slowly getting better. I love being able to share my learning curve with you all.

Purchase information for China Glaze polishes are available at The stamping plate used here can be purchased from the lovely Leah Ann at Llarowe.
