ABC Challenge: R is for Reverse-Stamping

The ABC Challenge is back on after a month-long break! This week’s prompt is the letter R and I’m going for a reverse-stamped skittlette manicure.


On my ring and index fingers, I reverse-stamped two images from the Born Pretty aztec plate (BP-L010) using Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Re-Teal Therapy and Black to Black, and Pure Ice in Flirt Alert and Super Star, respectively. [This video shows how to reverse stamp directly onto your nails.] On the thumb, pinky and middle fingers, I sponged on a gradient using the pink & teal (Pure Ice in Flirt Alert & Sally Hansen Re-Teal Therapy) over a white base. Over that, I sponged on Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pixel Perfect, which is a super-fun mix of different-sized hexagonal, round and bar particles in black and white.

I also played with a matte top coat, because you gotta! Which do you think looks better?
