Nails: Inadvertent Brocade

Isn’t life interesting? I find that even when you don’t plan things, something good happens. I am quite the planning freak, so I do freak out when events cause sudden changes in my schedule. I’m trying to improve though, as this is not a really healthy reaction to life.

It’s kind of what happened to my most recent mani. I merely wanted to test drive my new Konad nail stamping set (won it from Geek Girl Manila!) and it turned out to be better than I expected! I’ll make a formal review of the stamping set soon, but I wanted to show you my first-ish attempt at nail stamping.

As base I used Dazzle Dry Morning Dew. Let me show you this color, which I just swatched recently.

For stamping, I used OMG Gold Digger. As I mentioned in my swatch post, this is one of the thickest formulas I encountered so far, which led me to decide on using this as the stamping polish. It took several tries, but I finally got the hang of the stamping process. Here’s how it turned out, after applying top coat.

Not that bad eh? I thought it looked very much like green brocade, like this.

I love how things turn out for the best. My practice stamping created a brocade-like pattern and color that I didn’t really plan on. Here are some more shots of the nails.

      1. Gold digger is surprisingly really good for stamping! I have the Konad double ended one, so I may have both? 😛 I’ll do a review of the stamping kit soon!

    1. I’m enjoying it! I see it as an avenue for expressing myself. I do wish I had all the time in the world to explore more nail art! I too was hopeless at first but I really enjoyed it and eventually became better. You can too!
