A Minty Double Stamp

Morning my loves! Today I've got another adventure in stamping to share with you. This time I attempted my very first double stamp. For those of you that know nothing about stamping all this means is that I stamped an image and then I stamped another image on top of that one. This requires lining up your images and actually knowing what you're doing. I was slightly terrified but I took a leap and decided to go with it.

Ok before I tell you what I stamped, I know all of you are going WHAT IS THAT HOLO GLITTER GOODNESS?! Well let me tell you my dear friends. That is the wonderful, the fabulous Harlow & Co. Misfits. Katie the creator of this awesomeness describes it as, "charcoal grey glittery goodness, splashes of silver and holographic glitter, sprinkled with black hexograms." It really is a masterpiece. The above photo is slightly blurred for holo goodness, but I wanted to start it off with a bang. This was 2 coats of Misfits.

For my other nails I started with 2 coats of one of my all time favourite polishes, Essie Mint Candy Apple. Then I stamped using Konad m78 and Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris and then stamped the same image slightly moved to the left in Konad Special Polish in White

The inspiration for these nails came as I was browsing Pinterest and saw these incredibly cute boxes! 


Aren't those gorgeous? I would love to get a gift wrapped in one of those! Plus the mint, black and white colour scheme is fabulous.

I loooovveed this combination. Its got my favourite type of accent nail. One of my all time favourite colours. And a new technique for me. I think this was an all around win for me. And I wore it for 3 days. Did not want to take these bad boys off!!

Also are you seeing how much sparkle is in Misfits?! This has jumped into the top few polishes of 2012 for me. Simply stunning.

Have you ever tried to double stamp? How did your double stamping go? What kind of combinations did you try? Are you loving this holo goodness glitter?

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!! Thanks for stopping by dears! :D
