Cheeky Stamping

For today's design I went outside my comfort zone.  I have never really worn bright colors on my nails, especially a bright yellow.  I purchased butter LONDON's Cheeky Chops awhile ago and had only used it once with a stamp. Today I decided to base my design on this polish.  This is the first Butter London polish that I was disappointed in the application.  It was really streaky, even with 2 coats, however you can't really see it in the pictures.


Next I used Konad plate m64 and Sally Hansen Grey Area.  This polish still doesn't look grey to me, more brown. 

I was going to make my design shiny but decided that a matte might tone down the yellow.  I added 2 coats of Essie Matte About You.


I'm not really sure how I feel about this design.  I like it and I don't like it. Maybe it will grow on me. :)

  6. I'm not a huge fan of the pattern, but I'm in love with Cheeky Chops! great swatches, but it's a shame to hear about the application.

  7. I love the Yellow! The stamp is cute! I think the color you used dulls the yellow abit. But on the other side it makes it have an antiqued look!
