I’m so glad it’s Spring! Even though it can still be chilly here and we’ve been having quite a few overcast days, I love that it’s starting to warm up enough to be outdoors again. I’ve always loved Summer, so I can’t wait for it to warm up even more!
Today I have some silver stamping to show you, reminiscent of an optical illusion. I started with a base of Supermoon Lacquer Knight’s Strength. Knight’s Strength has really grown on me – the subtle shift is something very special. Over that, I stamped using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L008 and Powder Perfect Silver Stamping Polish. I recently saw Dianna from Snacks on Rotation stamping with this polish and I had to have it. My own go-to silver stamping polish is running dangerously low, and I really liked the smooth chrome look of this one. I wasn’t disappointed, it’s great! I picked up the golden stamping polish as well, I’ll try to get a review of the pair up soon. The stamping image isn’t really an optical illusion – it doesn’t actually trick the eyes – but it reminds me of one. I was definitely grateful for my clear stamper while doing these, there’s no way I would have gotten the image even close to the centre of each nail without it! The macro shows you some of the shifty goodness that is Knight’s Strength! So, that’s it for today. A fairly simple yet effective nail art. That is the beauty of stamping – as much as I enjoy doing some detailed freehand nail art, I don’t always have the time or energy for it. That’s often when a little stamping is perfect! I mean, you can do some very detailed and time-consuming stamped manicures as well, but often a simple stamp is all you need 🙂
