Hi everyone! If you follow along you know that this year I have been trying out stamping plates and really enjoying it. But I had not tried reverse stamping yet. So I decided to use Bundle Monster Color's Plate XL156 to create some simple reverse stamped plaid nails.
Above is the Bundle Monster plate I used, which was sold earlier this year with proceeded benefiting the Manchester bombing. (I was more than pleased to pick up this plate and help support the victims of such a horrific tragedy.) Next I needed to pick out some colors to create the look with. I selected:
Sinful Colors "V. I. Peach", Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black" and OPI's "Love Athletes In Cleats."
First I painted my nails with two coats of Sinful Colors "V. I. Peach" for a nice easy base. next I used Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black" to stamp with. Before stamping in my fingers I used a dotting tool (purchased on Amazon) to add the red accent with OPI's "Love Athletes In Cleats." Here how it looked before I stamped it on my nails:
Overall I learned that revers stamping is not nearly as easy as it looks and that I need a lot more practice. That being said I think this look is super cute and with a little work I could make it look cleaner. I am very excited to try out some more reverse stamping looks. (And any helpful hints are welcome!)
