NOTD: China Glaze Gamer Glam + m65

This was my NOTD on Friday, an awesome mani, & I loved it even though the double-stamping didn't go perfectly.  It's abstract enough that it wasn't glaringly obvious - at least, not to anyone but me LOL.
I started with a base of China Glaze Gamer Glam from the Tronica collection, then did stamping with Black special polish & Konad plate m65.  I've always wanted to use this design but couldn't quite figure out where to match it up.  I finally gave it a try doing the second stamp with just part of the design - I put the seam towards my cuticle because I thought it would show less, but I actually think it would have been easier to do it at the tip.  I know I'm being picky but the stamping that turned out best IMO was my right middle finger (shown in the 2nd sunlight pic):
Here's an example of how I cut the design - I then reversed the design & matched the "cut" end of the 2nd stamp with the part on the first stamp that I cut off, if that makes sense?  I think you can tell what I mean if you compare with how it turned out on the nail:
And the best part?  My nails looked exactly like my shirt!

Thanks for reading =)


  1. Love the part about the matching shirt, lol!

  2. so pretty! I love doing geometric stamping with this pattern!

  3. Nice!

    Do you have any suggestions on good nail polish from China Glaze to use for stamping with konad? I'm a bit tierd of konad special...

  4. That's really creative, I love the purple base :)

  5. I don't really like the design, not my style. It looks too heavy. But I LOVE the color you use! And stamping must be very hard, I can't even imagine how to do it! :)

  6. I loved this stamp on that polish! Reallyyyy nice!

  9. Wow! I love this effect! I haven't gotten into stamping but seeing your results here and on other NOTD's makes me want to. You definitely have another fan here. :D
