Copycat + Red Angel Plates Comments

So I am finally removing my Incoco nail polish strips today, but a few days ago I decided I wanted to replicate that design on my other nails painted with Sinful Colors Nail Junkie. I found a ver similar design in my Red Angel collection which can be found on plate RA 113. It is kind of stripy and reminds me of zebras, but when paired with Nail Junkie it reminds me more of seaweed!

So here is the finished look. Now I had some issues with this design inparticular, first of all the design is engraved to deeply. What happens when the image is to deep is when to go to stamp it on your nail or smudges :( I had to be really careful with not pushing too hard on the stamper when picking up the design and gently rolling it on the nail. After a couple of tries I got the hand of it, but below is an example of when I stamped too hard (left) and just right (right).

A little messy right? I guess that is something to be aware of when stamping with new plates. I didn't realize that deeply ingrained images could be just as bad as shallow engraved images. I guess I will need some practice to get it right.

Hope you have a great weekend :)
