We Stamp on Sundays- French tip design!

Hello and Happy Sunday! I'm so excited to show you the mani I created for todays Stamping Challenge. I'm in a group called Adventures in Stamping and the girls in the group are so wonderful and have so many great ideas. Today's challenge is a french tip design. I went searching and searching for the plate I wanted to use, I finally decided to use one of the new cheeky plates I got in the mail. I found the plate I wanted, but now I needed to pick my color scheme. Since we are going into October, and it's pink october, what else could I choose? So I instantly grabbed my favorite pale pink in my stash. Essie- Raise Awareness. And what more fitting then a polish created for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Now for stamping colors, I chose such a delicate pink so I didn't want to go too overboard, but what I ended up doing next, was overboard. And guess what? I loved it! I used Sally Hansen- Insta-dri in presto pink and Sinful colors Snow me White to do a gradient over Raise Awareness. I did this using the sponge method that my friend Jennifer over at Little J's Nail Corner gave me the run down on. If you haven't checked her blog out, it's a must! This was the first time for me doing a gradient and I thought it came out pretty good!
On my ring finger I used Cheeky plate CH24 to do a french tip design, but I didn't want to do this on every nail. So I added polka dots with my dotting tools in the same color I stamped with, Sally Hansen- Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep, and did this on my remaining nails. But of course, I couldn't stop there. I used my XL cheeky plate b to add bows in white to the polka dotted fingers, and to finish I added rhinestones from bornprettystore into the center of the bows!

I hope you've enjoyed today's Sunday Stamping!
