Not large enough, but still a win in my book!

COMMENTS: American Apparel - Hassid with stamping done in Sally Hansen Chrome - Copper Chrome. I got the new Bundlemonster plates and with all the gorgeous new full-nail patterns, I was hoping some would fit. Nope, apparently I have gargantuan nails because this pattern only fit on my pinky completely. I had to turn it sideways and double stamp on the rest of my nails.

Although you can see my sloppy  matching, I still love it because I haven't done full-nail patterns with any measure of success before, so this is progress! 





One of the things that really helped was using a stamper that has a much softer surface. The Konad stamper is too firm to handle the curve of my nails

  3. Love this! Very organic looking like traditional African garb for special occasion... I still don't own any stamping plates but this one is tempting. :)

  5. @Melissa - It came with this Nail Diva stamping machine (which was a total fail), and I threw out the machine but kept the plates, polish and stamper. I sure am glad I kept it now!

  8. You might have to cut them nails way back for it to fit. Lol! My nails curve too maybe that's my problem why the design doesn't cover sides of my nails. I need your stamper. Lol!

    You did a very good job of matching up though...looks good :)

  13. Looks great you can barely see the join! Is the stamper sticky? I saw a video on youtube which showed a stamper from a machine that had a sticky surface, so it made it easier to use any polish to stamp with.

  14. Thanks ladies!
    @NailNewbie: The stamper has a squishy gel-like consistency, so the surface does feel somewhat sticky. It attracts fuzz like a magnet, but works so much better for me.
