Spring Flowers

Hi everyone, so sorry for taking so long to post again.  Finals are next week so I've been cramming to get all my homework done and study.  I hope you are all enjoying the nice weather, I took my son to the park yesterday to run around and it was so nice to be out in the fresh air =)

Today I have something fun and a little nerve-wracking for me...........stamping!!  Stamping is what first got me interested in nail art but it is still difficult for me.  I'm a bit of a perfectionist yet I never seem to be able to get the stamps to look the same.  I used Sinful Colors Candy coated (from their Sugar Rush Collection) as the base color and stamped with Sinful Colors Enchanted.  I love how the combo turned out!  Candy Coated is a pastel purple that went on super easy, I only used 2 coats and had complete opaqueness.  Enchanted stamped really well, there weren't many spots that were thin.  I used Nail Art Plates stamp m60 because I thought it was really cute and appropriate for Spring!  I really hope you like how this turned out, I will be working to perfect my technique so be on the look out for more stamping posts =)

I used both with flash and without flash for the nail pictures so you can see the difference =)
