Twinsie Tuesday - Something New

I was browsing the YouTube and the Google for the inspiration a couple of days ago to decide on "something new" to try, because my bottle of creative juice was 100% empty. I came across this video tutorial, and for a floral design, surprisingly loved it so much that I needed to recreate it! I changed it up a bit to fit my style better, and produced my first ever successfully multi-stamped mani.

That is how this fits today's theme. I have tried double stamping before, but have never been able to stamp more than once and have a good outcome. Tri-stamping is something new to me.

For these nails, I started off with a two-coat base of Zoya Adel. I bought this to use as a jelly/glitter sandwich polish a year ago and still haven't used it as such. In fact, other than for that purpose, I was never really sure what I would need a sheer white for until now!

I stamped first with Revlon Metallic (rather than a gold as Miss80Million does in the video) and BM12. On top of that, I used another floral image from BM03 and stamped it with Julep Rose 2-3 times per nail. I finished it off with the first floral design, but only used the largest flower from that image, and stamped it a few times on each nail with a Born Pretty Store special stamping polish in black. Topped everything with some topcoat, and sat back to admire one of my few stamping success stories!

Check out what everyone else did for today's theme, too!
