Keep Calm & Polish On

This manicure is perfectly fitting to the situation... my first ever attempt at Reverse Stamping! (not the stamping decal method)

Let me just say, it was not all fun and games (for reference see my initial FAILED attempt on instagram) But I "kept calm and polished on" and eventually got a manicure I was semi-happy with. lol!

Polishes used are: OPI Do You Take Lei Away?, Suzi Shops & Island Hops, Hello Hawaii Ya?, Get Cherried Away, My Dogsled is a Hybrid. The stamps come from BM-619. My inspiration to FINALLY attempt the reverse stamping method was Marta from Chit Chat Nails when she had major success with it! And she shared a video tutorial by NailStamp4Fun on Youtube that was super helpful! 


I just realized today, the final day of March, that I have officially only posted 5 manicures per month since January and that is just not acceptable. So I already have a few more lined up for the start of April and will do my best to increase my posting frequency :)
