Newbie: Nail Stamping

Hello lovelies~ 
It's finally friday but I still have saturday classes. boo! But nevertheless this will be a looong weekend for me. There's two-days holiday next week. Woot! 

Anyway, I created a new tag for this post which is the "newbie" tag as I've said before, I've just discovered the wonders of cosmetics so there'll be a lot of first times for me so please bear with me as I share with you my thoughts about these first times :) So let's get on with this first time which is Nail Stamping!
Last week I bought the Salon Express Nail stamping kit and I finally got it yesterday! Here it is!

The kit comes with the ff:
1 scraper
1 plate holder
1 stamper
5 stamping plates

Here are the 5 stamping plates

There are lots of design to choose from and I think every kit has the same design plates from what I've seen. There's 6 full nail design, some flowers and animals, and ofcourse lots of hearts and stars too! I'm so excited about this that when I got it I immediately tried it hahaha here's my first try at nail stamping. 

HAHAHA I tried the full nail star design but varying the size on my nails. Obviously I failed at it but you can see some star patterns right? :) Friends say they look like hails or snow. I seriously fail at this but I'll practice until I get it perfectly. Oh and my base nail polish is Wish's Hot Pink :) I also ordered some really cute fimo canes for my future NOTDs!

Yay cute fimo canes <3 I'm looking forward to using these but I need to get my creative juices. Huuuu lately I've been so drained and stressed because of school but I'll do my best and look for inspiration!

Oh and I just had to post this one because this new song from Xia really hit home >.<


"She said you’re not ready baby, you're not ready for the real thing"
