Simply Fall: Golden Plaid
After a few days of stamping fail I finally have a low humidity day and look! I was able to stamp. My family and I have plans today to go to Toledo, OH for some shopping and dinner. I wasn't about to go out with a crappy Mani. So I decided that if I couldn't stamp I was going to do water decals, but I had to try first. Well low and behold the universe decided to allow me to do it.
For this look I used Orly- Mirror Mirror with China Glaze- Jingle Bells stamped over. I was trying really hard to hold off on using my Naughty or Nice polishes until after Halloween, but I was too curious to see if the metallic polish would stamp. And it does rather well. For the plaid I used Konad plate m60.
So here are my thoughts on what happened with the stamping failure. Humidity, cold and airflow. Today before even trying to stamp I checked the humidity level. Its 10% lower today than it was yesterday. I made sure all of the fans were off, and I turned the heat on in the house last night. I have been keeping the house around 70 degrees lately. When I went to stamp today it was around 76. Maybe it being too cold had something to do with it? No idea but I have a sneaky suspicion that it does effect stamping.
So hopefully everyone else is having a good weekend. Happy Polishing loves!
