By far, my favorite nail art technique is stamping. It's easy, it's relatively quick (as far as nail art goes), and it's pretty cheap and easy. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment and it almost always turns out looking really cute. This manicure did not disappoint!
After applying a base coat, I used one (yup, just one) coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Grease Lightening. In this photo, it's coming off a little more navy blue than in real life. In real life, it's a blue toned dark gray creme but no matter how I tried, I couldn't get it to photograph accurately.
Next, I used Pure Ice Outrageous to stamp over it. I fell in love with the coffee images on the Cheeky Jumbo Home Sweet Home plate and I haven't used any of them yet so I knew that they were going to be making an appearance. I used the full nail image of the smiley coffee cups and just stamped the littler cup onto my pinky. My nails were all nubbins when I did this manicure so it was hard to get much more than just one cup to show up but I still think this turned out adorable! Makes me want a cup of coffee! I topped it all off with a top coat, which I was sloppy with and smeared the pinky a bit but it's all good.
