For the nail art challenge that I’m participating in via Instagram, there was a theme called Spring Time. I could have easily gone for pink and floral spring nails, but I decided to follow the season here right now and design an autumn stamping nail art!
This design was inspired by my super talented stamping mentor, Cassis from Nails by Cassis! When I first saw this design on her Instagram I fell in love with it instantly!! She has video tutorials for all of her designs and they have been marvellously helpful. Of course, everything looks so straightforward and easy to do when she demonstrates, but when a super beginner stamper with zero experience (me) tries what she does… the end result is a catastrophe.
As you can see, the stamping images are so scratchy and the flower decals are too thick! And the red and pink polish are too transparent so that you can see the black background underneath. Ugh! I’m so embarrassed, but I’m secretly loving this design, lol. 😀
Cassis used a gorgeous rose stamping image for her design, but I didn’t have any rose stamping plates yet. So instead I used the big flower images on BM 717 (Secret Garden Collection from Bundle Monster)!
