NOTD; Nail Stamping Using the Hello Kitty Nail Art Plate from Born Pretty Store

Hello readers :) I had a really tiring day today. Not only today but since last week, and I really wish that I could rest from all this stress but I cant because I have to keep moving. Good thing I have stuffs that makes me happy and gives me strength- my beauty and nail art stuffs :)) HAHA

So yesterday I showed you swatches of Wet n Wild's Teal or No Teal. I would have opted for some 3D nail art but since I dont have any idea yet as to how to do it, I just decided to do nail stamping. I used the metal plate that I got from Born Pretty Store when they had this massive Hello Kitty Metal Plate giveaway early this year I think.

This is the template that I used, but the stamp and scraper were not part of the freebie so I bought my own. Check out the link below if you want to purchase this item too. Its only for $2.99, free shipping already :)

After painting my nails with Teal or No Teal, I left it for about 5 minutes to make sure that its already dry. I dont want to stamp on slightly wet nail polish because it will just ruin my nails, and I dont like looking at it lol.

I chose this simple floral design because I find it interesting with the leaves or petals detail on the side. Its like the leaves/petals are falling or are being blown away. Nice ^_^

I tried to add a rhinestone on the center of the flower but its too big for the flower so I took it off. I then left the design as simple as that because I think its better. Also, I dont want to do the stamping again if things go wrong with the rhinestones. Stamping can be quite hard if you're not used to it, and you have to be careful so that you'll get the right image you want and transfer it properly. Although basically its just as easy as stamp and press, it can be as difficult as putting a thread on a needle.

Anyways, here are a few more photos of my NOTD, feel free to check them out.. Although its not really that impressive hehe. I am thinking of going 3D next time, and hope that my other order from Born Pretty Store arrives because I am so excited. Err I can be patient with almost anything except on my packages so please give em to me right now! Lol :p
