a-England knocks it out as usual with Galahad, a ONE COAT wonder in a richly colored blue… I definitely swooned.  But here’s what I tend to forget about one-coaters: usually not so hot with the stamping.  I started a stamp on a white contrast nail in the middle and the polish was just like “meh, maybe not.”  So I stamped it again to shut it up.  And then once more because I liked all the random overlapping lines the BM-205 design made when it double-stamped.  Of course, couldn’t have just one nail stamped like crazy so I used Kleancolor White to duplicate the effect on the rest of the nails.  Interesting effect, but I sort of wish I hadn’t gone for the contrast nail and would have let Galahad just do his own thing… next time!

    Wait, what–one coaters don’t like to be stamped with? I guess I need to do more stamping since I haven’t noticed that.

    Regardless, I like the end result you got!

    Thanks Michelle, that’s so sweet!

    I guess maybe just the one-coaters I have/however I’m using ‘em — American Apparel springs to mind, that was a grand fail in stamping… I should probably should just stick to my Konad & Kleancolor wheelhouse for stamping :)

  6. That is such a fun design! It kind of makes me think of Spongebob! =P
