Adventures in stamping

My feelings about stamping thus far ^

I have always admired the ladies that have perfected stamping, and I've wanted to give it a go for quite some time. I got a basic konad set several months ago, along with a few plates of singular images, I wasn't blown away by them though. I decided to order two sets of pueen plates, totaling 52 plates a few weeks ago, and these are my stamping adventures thus far.

Nail fails

We all have them, most are too embarrassed to show them. Well, I've decided every nail fail that I have, I will be taking pics and posting them on here.

When I started my adventures into nail art 5 months ago I was totally clueless. I relentlessly searched Pinterest, Tumblr, and nail blogs looking for easy nail art to do. It always looks easy in the pictures! File these under: WHAT WAS I THINKING?!
