Stamping Contest

I have a quick little post, I found a contest on one of the blogs I follow called Creative Nail Design by Sue & decided to give it a go. I hardly ever stamp, but I really do need the practice, & the first prize was the kicker...Butter London, oh my!) But it's a lovely idea & so I grabbed all my stamp plates & stared at them for a while, finally I chose one that I think is super cute & just went with it.

For my polish color I chose Orly Royal Navy, if you haven't gotten this polish it is simply the most gorgeous blue ever, I mean really...EVER! I then used the little buttons on Konad stamping plate M16 & my white Konad polish to stamp with. I added an angled french tip with white polish & accentuated with little black stitch lines using black polish & a thin art brush.

Here is my result & entry to the Stamping Contest: (please forgive the sorry state of my cuticles, I had a big clean up day & didn't wear gloves. Tsk, tsk, I know!)

This pic was taken outside, no sun today.

Here's a pic of the polish before the design, indoor soft lighting shows off the pretty  teal shimmer
