A New Find Adds Dimension

For quite some time I've been using various nail art paints for my nail stamper. They were cheap and worked pretty well for my nail art, but I just found a brand that I LOVE!!!

While Color Club (we all know and love them!) has an amazing line of nail polishes that are full of pigment and opacity, they also have a line of nail art paints that are just as wonderful and has brought the fun of nail stamping to a whole new level for me! So, what you see in the pic is OPI's Chapel of Love which is a GORGEOUS orangy-pink... almost a salmon and a little shimmery; two coats covered perfectly (you can click on the pic to enlarge). I then took Color Club's Art Club nail art paint in satin silver and painted random lines and squiggles. The brush is super, pin-stripe thin so it was really easy to do. I let it set up for about a minute and then stamped a beautiful asian symbol from Konad's image plate S4 with the Konad special polish in black. I added three little dots using the corner of an orange stick and viola! I am a freak for the asian theme, so I might be a little bias, but aren't these the most AMAZING nails you've ever seen?!? hahahaha! The dimension the nail art paint provided just made the stamp pop and the color combo is killer! I LOVE IT!

***Note: if you're interested in where I get my Konad from, I purchase all my supplies and image plates from http://store.ocnailart.com/. Use discount code "MENTAL" for 20% off. And as always, there's FREE shipping on orders over $20.
