The Digit-al Dozen does Recreating Your First Blog Posts - Layered Fire Stamping

Hey there!  We've come to the end of The Digit-al Dozen's week of recreating our first blog posts.  Since it's also 26 Great Nail Art Ideas day for Fire and/or Ice nails, I decided to combine them by redoing the first fire nail stamping I tried.  However I made some appropriate modifications as you'll see below...

Here's a look at the original.  They're almost the same except the first version was done with a brand that I won't touch my nails with anymore.  I don't even want to mention them but you'll likely know why if you check out the blog post...and if you don't, I'd suggest you check out my friend Ashley's post.

I again started with Zoya Dovima, a matte black.  This was the hardest part for me.  Since the base is a matte polish, I couldn't use a shiny quick dry top coat to speed it up before stamping.  And I'm not the most patient person on earth!

The stamping plate I used is Messy Mansion MM27, which has both fire and ice.  But I just used the fiery parts.  

But this time I used a super duper stamping brand that I have faith will never be shrouded in badness. The polishes used for the stamping were Hit The Bottle As Good As Gold, Drop Red Gorgeous and Calypso Gold.  I skipped the top coat to keep this kinda matte.  It probably would've looked tidier if I had top coated but I wanted to stick as close to the original as possible.  

That's all there was to it so that finishes up my re-creations week.  You can find the rest of the ladies' final manis in the links below AND the 26 Great Nail Art Ideas fire and ice manis as well.  Have a great weekend!

'Til next time...
