This was inspired by @nailsbycambria although I went a little nuts with the different flower types! I wanted to test my newest clear stamper. IT IS MAGIC.
So, I have my B. Loves crystal clear stamper…and it is SUPER squishy, which I am not used to and thus have a hard time picking up images. Cathy over at More Nail Polish did a comparison of the clear stampers she owns a few months back, and recommended the piCture pOlish one. When I saw that they had it in stock at color4nails (along with the purple holo I had been meaning to buy after it appeared on EVERYONE’S ‘favorite of 2015’ list, and an on-sale A England) I just had to get it. Best. Idea. Ever.
The picture polish clear stamper is harder and more curved, but pick up just a well (if not better) than my old stamper, and picks up the same WAY. It is slightly harder to position properly due to the increased curvature, but sooo much easier for me to work with!
It comes with a plastic cover (yay) and a back-up stamping head (more yay!) in addition to the clear stamper. Sadly, the head that arrived on my stamper is slightly defective (the inner part of the squishy section looks like it got folded at one point and dried with creases). It does not at all affect the stamping ability, and really doesn’t much impact how much I can see through it, I just need to ignore the wrinkles when I place the stamp. The extra head is completely ok, so I might switch to that at some point.

ANYWAY. I wanted a mint-and-green gradient like what Cambria had done, so I put this together! I’m pretty darn happy with how this turned out…I had been wanting to do lots of flowers for a while, but I could never get them to line up how I wanted! Ta-da! Hope you enjoyed! And thanks Cathy for the recommendation 😀
