China Glaze: Awakening and butterflies

Sometimes a simple nail stamping is good... like when you're making a tutorial on how to stamp! Recently my little cousin and I filmed me doing this mani for the new Manicured Monkey You Tube Channel.  Check it out, it's pretty awesome :D

This is two coats of China Glaze's Awakening.  It's a mauvey pink frost with flashes of gold and copper, it's quite pretty!

The pictures were taken under a daylight bulb and in my light box, you can see the gold flashy fun.  I stamped M15 with special white polish in hopes it would show best in the video.  It actually worked out pretty well. I didn't worry too much about centering the images because it was all about the concept of stamping and how it works.

One of the things I forgot to say in the video was that I used a top coat of SV.  For those who want to try stamping, this top coat works well and doesn't streak the special polish if you are generous and light touched with it.  It also makes your nails feel like glass :)

There are more tutorials to come, what would you like to see?

Giveaway Update: I've decided to start the 200 follower giveaway once 190 followers is reached because my followers are THAT awesome :)
