Adventures In Stamping: Circles (FAIL)

I recently joined a group on Facebook called Adventures in Stamping. It's a great group and I love all the gals in there. I am having so much fun! We do a new challenge every week, and this week, it was circles. Seems easy right? Just pick an image plate that has a circular design and stamp! Well, I have a few plates with circular images on them. But, I haven't done a half moon mani before. So I went with my Red Angel 110 plate. I was excited to try something new. I had already painted my nails (for another group challenge) and picked my stamping colors. SH Insta Dri "Wined UP" and Orly "Dazzle" First off, I had a hard time stamping the image in the right spot. The more I went along, the more I didn't like it :( I chose "wined up" for my ring finger to give it a little pop. It pops! I actually love this color. First time stamping with it. However, when I was all done, I didn't like it one bit as a whole. I decided to still take pics and show my failure to coordinate colors and stamp an image on the center of my nail. See for yourself:
I will be removing my mani either tonight or tomorrow. I just wanted to show you my fail so that we can all either laugh at me or you can tell me I am doing ok and keep on going :) Either way, thanks for looking!!

Basecoat:  China Glaze "Beauty and the Beach"

  1. I practiced this design & didn't like it either. I think it'd be cuter with longer nails than our length. I like your base coat though! Is that China Glaze "beauty & the beach" a current color?

  2. I actually don't know. I ordered it online at I have never checked to see it was readily available in the stores.

  3. I think you did a really good job! Especially for you first time with this design.
