Here is my entry for last week's "Patriotic" Challenge:
I began this design with the idea that I'd stamp some red stripes (partial design from Konad plate M81) on top of the blue and add some small white stars afterwards. Well, as you can see, that didn't work out as planned. The red didn't show over the blue and I don't have any stars! (Well not any stars of sufficient size... I've got designs that have teeny, tiny stars floating around but I can never get those to stick to my rubber stamp!) Anyways, I tried stamping the red stripes but since it barely showed, I took a Stripe Rite polish (red glitter) and painted over the stamping. I liked how it looked so I added white stripes to the design! And since the star idea wasn't going to work, I used "USA" from plate M14.
Speaking of plate M14... that is probably the most random collection of designs that Konad has! Seriously!? What do diamonds, starbursts, cupcakes, and the USA have in common? NOTHING! Ahaha!
Base Color - OPI "Russian Navy" (Suede)
Stripes- Stripe Rite Polish (Red Glitter & White)
USA- Konad Image Plate M14
I love how easy (and FAST) it was to work with "Russian Navy". I applied 2 coats of it and 5 minutes later I was ready to stamp! The nice thing about working with the fast drying polishes is if you mess up while stamping, there is no stress in painting your whole nail because it will be dry and ready to re-stamp in a jiffy!
It would have been so much more appropriate if the polish was named "US Navy" instead... Hope you like my nails!
