I am alive and well .. posts will continue to be scarce around here for the next little while. My guy and I are packing up and moving half way across the country next week. I'm hoping to have a few posts scheduled so that it's not complete radio silence on here but it all depends on just how busy things get.
Moving on - I had the opportunity to try out a stamping plate from KKCenterHK not too long ago. I chose this one, because I love all things nautical :)
I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my middle and ring finger. Once that was dry I added striping tape and covered the nail with China Glaze Hey Sailor! Pointer and pinky finger have Sinful Color Cold Leather from the new Leather collection (which is amazing!).
Then using Konad Special Polishes in White and Black I stamped 4 different images from the plate. I got a little too impatient though and ended up smearing my two skulls, boo. The images though were nice and crisp - my white polish was a bit separated and that's the reason for the missing spots in the skulls and crossbones. And the blob of black in the middle of the Ship's Wheel is simply due to the smaller & harder stamp that I used, and not due to the plate at all.
Overall this was a great plate to stamp from and a good addition to my plate collection. The only issue I have with the plate is there's no backing, making the edges super sharp!
