Stamped Newspaper Nails with Flowers- AIS Stamping over a nude base. BM -311

Hello everyone!

Today I can finally show you something I made in August, when the challenge in the group Adventures In Stamping was: "Stamping over a nude base". You have seen the end result above. Now I'll show you the nude base color, and how this mani evolved from day to day, and a list of what I used.

Day 1: H&M: Lavender Frost + Seche Vite 

Here you see the nude base on it's own. I've showed you the other color in this duo nail polish last year. To see it, click here. Both colors are very opaque and have a thick formula. H&M do not test their nail polish on animals.

I'm still searching for the perfect nude cream nail polish. Do you have any suggestions? I've already bought a light peach, but haven't tried it yet. My favorite nude is Crows Toes: Birthday Suit, but that's not a cream.

Day 2: Newspaper stamping

I used BM- 311 and stamped with Konad SP Black. Sadly the top coat smeared the black a little.

Day 3: White flowers

I found these flowers on the same stamping plate, and used a dotting tool to make the black centers. But I felt that it still needed something, and added black flowers in the same way.

Day 3, a little later: Black flowers


H&M: Lavender Frost
Bundle Monster: BM- 311
Konad: SP Black
Konad: SP White
Dotting tool

I also used IsaDora #600 Clear as base coat, and Seche Vite after each step.

I hope you're all doing well, and that you had an awesome summer/ winter!

    1. Thank you! Personally I liked the final result best too. Thank you for agreeing on my choices!

  2. ahhh Lani this is very beautiful! I love complex designs like this one! everything is perfect here :))

    1. Thank you! It's easy to do, but for me who don't have that much experience with stamping, it took a lot of time. And I should have thinned the black stamping polish...

  3. Wow, the result looks so amazing! <3

  4. Absolutely adore your work! Flawless!
