Stamp Camp: Bamboo Nails featuring Frenz Nails Cybr08

Today I have another mani I did as part of the #supergorgeousblog challenge of the month of June on Instagram. The theme was green for that day.

One of the issues I have as a stamping rookie is picking the right stamping polishes. I got quite frustrated more often than I could count if I used regular polish for my stamping training. Everybody and their brother seem to be able to handle them but me. The stamps get smeared, only partially transferred and what have you. Choosing one coaters helped some but not reliably and finally I faced the fact, that I have to get my hands on some stamping polishes. Now I have no idea if Frenz Nails Cybr line is really meant to be stamping polishes but they are 1. metallic, 2. highly pigmented and creamy and 3. suggested as stamping polish by Camille from Pshiiit Boutique. Who am I to dismiss her advice? I started out with two of them and today I show you what I got out of Cybr08, a bright green metallic with more yellow than blue.

I started with applying two coats of A England Camelot on all nails (well I did rush some here because Camelot usually is a one coater). I sealed the base color with Glisten&Glow HK Girl, waited until my nails were totally dry and then stamped the Bamboo motive over all nails except my pinkie for which I used the butterflies from MoYou Suki Plate Collection 01.

Final thoughts: Frenz Nails Cybr08 is fantastic as a stamping polish, the pattern transferred easily from plate to stamp to nail, no smearing, no sheerness but clear and sharp lines - a success!!!

I ordered Frenz Nails Cybr08 with Pshiiit Boutique. MoYou plates are available with Pshiiit Boutique and can be purchased directly from their own website.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for stopping by!!!
