Black and White Floral Print Stamp

Wendy here again with another nail art look! For this one, I used nail stamping to print a floral design onto my nails.  There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube on how to do nail stamping... I'll be honest, it's not that easy, but once you get the hang of it, it definitely turns out looking awesome! (wayyy easier than trying to paint a design on by hand!!)

OPI Skulls and Glossbones, LA Color Art Deco in Black

In order to achieve this look, I used two coats of OPI Skulls and Glossbones (from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection) and used stamping plate #m73 with black polish to print on the cute floral design. Make sure the base color has completely dried before doing any stamping!  One of the tricky things with using polish plates is finding polishes and colors that will print well--- I find that using polishes that have thicker consistencies (maybe older polishes) tend to work better than ones with more watery consistencies. I love using Skulls and Glossbones as a base color, almost any color will stand out on it, and I would highly recommending using it for Newsprint manis.  Hope you enjoyed this look!
