Cheeky Spiral Stamping

Greetings All!

How is your weekend thus far? Mine got off to a great start - my Cheeky 2013 Jumbo plates finally arrived, after 3 long, long weeks. There are some amazing patterns on them (like snails, light bulbs and spanners!), very random, but a lot of fun! I'm so glad I got the whole set - I think I have a stamp for every occasion now, and I might never need to freehand again lol. Now, how do I decide which ones to use first?!

As a little tribute to the awesomeness of Cheeky (their full nail bat design is...just...I mean, tattoo that straight on my nails lol), here is a little manicure I cheekily (yay!) wore to work this week. I bought some Sally Hansen Insta Dri's recently, as I've heard such good things about their stampability, and this was just a random combination that I really loved, for some reason. They aren't my favourite colours, it isn't my favourite stamp, but something in the combination was just gorgeous! I couldn't bear to take it off!








Is it weirdly perfect? Or maybe I'm just perfectly weird. Actually looking at these pics, I'm struggling a little to see why I liked them so much, but I literally just couldn't take them off. I wore them for nearly 2 days, which is a long time for me, especially without glitter or holo in there! I think it's the simplicity, and these two colours obviously like each other quite a bit! They are Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Choco Latte, and Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Wined Up (that Sally, she really knows what she's doing!). The plate is CH16.

I'm on a real stamping kick at the moment. When I haven't stamped for a while, I get put off, mostly by the cleanup, but once I start again, it's all I want to do!

    1. Thank you!

      I have a few I've had for a while - I must have chosen the few shades that don't stamp lol. Now before buying I do a quick Google to check that they stamp!

    1. It stamped brilliantly! I got 5 in total from Fragrance Direct, this is just the first one I tried but It'll probably become a staple stamping polish for me lol
