Stash update and my first adventures in stamping!

Wow, the holidays sure were busy! Honestly I'm kinda glad that's over with for another year. Love it when it's happening but I wouldn't want every day to be like that. One thing about Christmas though, it certainly added to my polish stash! First there were the Zoyas I ordered, then the Julep penny box, the Finger Paints Special Effects collection, the polishes I got in my stocking and my January Maven box from Julep.

And the best of all: my hubby got me the MASH stamping plate set! The worst of it was . . . HE DIDN'T GET THE STAMPER/SCRAPER SET! ACK! So there I was with my first stamping plates and no way to use them! My mother was kind enough to order the stamper/scraper though and it came in this thursday. Of course the first thing I had to do was try it out!

Since my January Julep Maven box had come in the day before I had Julep Blake on my nails, which, I must say, I'm really impressed with. A pastel yellow opaque in just two coats! I was going to stamp with black but my daughter saw me with the polish out and picked Zoya Kate instead so I went with it. I really like the color combination :)

What do you think? I definitely need to practice a lot more but I got lots of compliments on it at school <3

I love the stamp and color combo you chose. I'd love to see more! Maybe you'll convince me to finally get stamps :D
