Stamping Sunday: Using Two Stamps In One Manicure

This is my third week participating in Stamping Sundays, and I think I finally like how my manicure turned out. First of all, I want to complain a little bit about how disgustingly hot it has been in Southern California. I spent hours in the pool yesterday which was the only way I thought I would get any relief. It doesn’t look like it’s going to get cooler any time soon so I’m going to have to just deal with it.

This is the first time I use Deborah Lippmann Dancing In The Sheets and I really like it. Orly Mysterious Curse, which I love, appears to be a very close dupe.

I finally decided to use my bottle of Max Factor Fantasy Fire, and it is all my little lacquered heart had ever hoped for. Look how gorgeous this looks with just one coat! I can’t even imagine what it will look like layered over different colors.

And lastly, I used stamp BM 310 and Wet N Wild I Can’t Stand Up Straight. We weren’t obligated to use two stamps on each nail so I decided to just alternate these two stamps. I like how this came out but it almost pained me to cover up the Fantasy Fire goodness.

What do you think of my effort today? I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by and keep cool!

    The Fire & Ice is awesome! I like this stamp. It's sweet but the color keeps a bit of edge to it!

      Thank you! I wasn't expecting it too look kind of like a quilt and I love that effect!

    This is a gorgeous combo! I think I like the stamping that shows more color instead of silver.

    1. 12 August, 2012 at 2:58 pm

      I like the one that shows the color more too but the one that has a lot of silver on it looks almost quilted which I love!!

    Oh my gosh! I need to find someone to send me the Fantasy Fire polish!!! So beautiful!

    1. 12 August, 2012 at 2:55 pm

      This is seriously worth all the pain. I got lucky because a fellow polish blogger sent it to me and OMG it's a dream polish.

    My favorite SS so far! Love the Fantasy Fire with the deep blue and I like the dual stamp. I like being able to see more of the FF goodness, also, like NailsLikeLace said.

    This looks gorgeous! I love your choice of undies for Fantasy Fire. You have also just created a lemming for me – I NEED Deborah Lippmann Dancing In The Sheets!

    1. 14 August, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      Well, if you want a cheaper alternative, definitely get Orly Mysterious Curse. It actually has more of a duochrome than DITS. :)

      I still can't believe I got my hands on FF…I had been wanting it for eons.

        I think Orly Mysterious Curse was previously released as Orly Royal Velvet, which I have. Cynthia is right…the Orly is GORGEOUS.

          Oh yes, I forgot to mention Royal Velvet. I don't like that they pulled an OPI on us with that, but I will overlook it since it's so purdy.
