The Digit-al Dozen Does Red, Green, and Gold: Stripes on Stripes
Hi guys! Sorry I got behind with my DD manis this week, but here is my 4th mani for Red, Green, and Gold week.
I wasn't super satisfied with how this turned out... I am attempting to use a rectangular squishy stamper now and though it is easy to know how to orient it, I still ended up with wobbly lines. If any pro stampers out there have a suggestion for avoiding this, please let me know!
Anyway, the details about this mani are that I used two coats of Ulta Professional Green With Envy as my base. Once that was dry I stamped vertical stripes with Bundle Monster plate BM-411, and Zoya Isla. Next, I stamped the horizontal stripes with the same design, just turned it sideways, and Color Club Gingerbread Man.
I think this would have worked better with more constrast between the red and green underneath, since you can hardly tell that there are two colors, but I don't actually have any green polishes that stamp, and I only have the one red polish that stamps. Or I didn't when I did this mani anyway, but a lovely package of stamping polishes I ordered arrived two days ago, so those should be fun to play with!
What red and green polishes do you guys have that work for stamping?
Don't forget to check in with the rest of the DD crew this week if you haven't already!
