Copy-Caturday! Houndstooth Stamping - copied from WorkPlayPolish - Sort of...

Nails Inc. Black Taxi and The Thames

Okay, so...I tried to copy-cat a mani I saw over at WorkPlayPolish. Hers was GORGEOUS. My attempt was a fail (which I'll show you like I promised) the first time around. My houndstooth image was larger than hers and I'm not good at stamping.

Here's a teaser photo of her lovely mani - head on over and show her some love and see the rest of the photos and the post here.

THIS is what is SHOULD look like.

Then I got the the ultimate stamper. Which one is the ultimate stamper you ask? This one.

XL Stamper - available here

Now I can no longer blame my stamping on my little stamper that came in the $10 drugstore kit. And there's still blame to be had because I haven't mastered stamping yet, which will be obvious, but the fault lies squarely on my shoulders now and not the stamper. But I'm a big girl. I can handle it. And hopefully I'll get better with practice.

So here's what I ended up doing: Nails Inc. The Thames as a base and Nails Inc. Black Taxi for the stamping. Image from Bundle Monster 322 plate.

I've ordered the large DRK-A plate with the smaller houndstooth image more like what WorkPlayPolish used. So I will be trying again because I LOVE houndstooth.

And as promised...with the larger houndstooth image and the bad stamper.

What NOT to do. LOL!

So there you have it - another installment of my adventures in stamping! It's gotta get better!
