Hi everyone!

I decided to play with my squishy stamper a bit more to create some 80s-themed nails. Since the 80s were all about bright colours I decided to start with a brightly-coloured distressed effect.

Chalkboard Nails has a great tutorial for this look here. base-sinful-colors-snow-me-white-distressed-nails-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-tip-top-nail-chic-as-the-beat-grows-on-walking-on-sunshine-salsa-pop-sitting-pretty-cyan-can-can

The polishes I used to create the distressed look were Essence Break Through along with Tip Top As the Beat Grows On, Walking on Sunshine, Salsa Pop, Sitting Pretty, and Cyan Can-Can. base-sinful-colors-snow-me-white-distressed-nails-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-tip-top-nail-chic-as-the-beat-grows-on-walking-on-sunshine-salsa-pop-sitting-pretty-cyan-can-can

Over this base, I decided to go even more 80s with five different images from my Moyou Time Traveler collection Back to the 80s – 02. base-sinful-colors-snow-me-white-distressed-nails-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-tip-top-nail-chic-as-the-beat-grows-on-walking-on-sunshine-salsa-pop-sitting-pretty-cyan-can-can-stamped-moyou-time-traveller-collection-back-to-the-80s-02

There are a few issues that I still need to work on with my squishy stamper, but overall I’m happy with it and I have high hopes for future stamping! base-sinful-colors-snow-me-white-distressed-nails-essence-colour-&-go-break-through-tip-top-nail-chic-as-the-beat-grows-on-walking-on-sunshine-salsa-pop-sitting-pretty-cyan-can-can-stamped-moyou-time-traveller-collection-back-to-the-80s-02

I used Essence Stamp Me! White for the stamping. I wasn’t quite sure of the distressed look on its own, but combined with the stamping, I really like it!
