Purple Metallic Stamping

Hello readers!  Today I have some stamping to share.   Polishes used are Wet and Wild Black Creme and Klean Colors Purple Metallic.  I used Bundle Monster plate BM20.   

The Klean Colors Metallic polishes are really fantastic for stamping.  If you like to stamp then you NEED these polishes, just sayin'. 

You may have also noticed that my nails are a bit shorter than they have been :(  I had a nail catastrophe over the weekend.

It started out as just a little split right in the center, it wasn't even broken all the way through so I put some super glue on it in the hopes that I could buy some time and let it grow out.  If I had just cut it down then it wouldn't have broken so badly.  I snagged it when I was washing my hair and it ripped completely off.  Oh well, worse things could happen right?  ;)  I'll just be sporting nubbin's for a bit.  Just sucks because I had actually gotten them to a good length and shape that I liked now I'm starting over again.  :::sigh::: 



  1. Oh no! Nail catastrophes are so sad :( I hope they grow back super quickly for you!
    I love the purple mettallic stamping though, so subtle and edgy and awesome

  2. I'm so sorry about your nail! I hate it when that happens. Have you tried the Orly Nail Mender kit? It really works! I developed a vertical 'fault line' down my left pointer nail a few years ago & get breaks like you had if I don't pay attention to it. Right now it is split diagonally thru the layers under the fault. I didn't want to cut my already short nails, so I tried the Orly's kit. I applied the glue & then the powder, waited for it all to dry then buffed it smooth. It left the surface of the nail dull, but it doesn't show under opaque polish. I have had it on for over a week now & the little chip I tend to get at the tip of the fault took longer to appear & that was only after some filling. I do put on a new layer after removing old polish, but the crack hasn't popped open. I don't know how well it will work on big across the nail breaks, but it does the trick for vertical splits!

  3. Cute stamping! Sorry about your nail!

  4. Cute! That stamp design is one of my favorites. I've been trying to come up with some way to use one of my metallic purples. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. I love the Kleancolor metallics but they syain so bad! And we are in the same boat with our short nails!


Thanks for stopping by today, I would love to hear any comments or questions you may have! :)
