Stamping Saturday: Vintage Wallpaper

Purchased By Shelby Lou 

I am a fan of contrast: black & white, new & old, modern & vintage. I love putting opposite elements together for a new look. I do this in my clothing, accessorizing, home decorating, and of course my nails. There is something about awesomely ugly vintage prints used in the modern medium of nail art that just tickles me.

When I first saw A-England Fotheringhay Castle from the newest collection, I knew it was meant for some vintage stamping goodness. For this mani I started with a base of Polish My Life Birthday Suit. Birthday Suit is one of my new go-to nude cremes, I used three creamy coats for perfect coverage. For my stamping I used part of a branch image I liked from MoYou London Mother Nature 02.

I'm pretty happy that I was able to successfully use a full-image plate and place the image on my nails in a uniform way. I wish I had gotten the image down the sides of my nails better though. I used my Vivid Lacquer squishy rectangle stamper and it didn't quite smoosh enough down the sides of my crazy curved nails. I guess everything about me is curvy haha! Who else out there loves awesomely ugly vintage nails?
