Essie Braziliant Stamped...

So maybe I'm just dreaming of warm weather, the sun, the beach... looking at my nails all day yesterday made me wish I was in Hawaii instead of home. It seemed fitting to stamp with a Hawaiian hibiscus flower pattern. Since I don't have any stamps with the traditional hibiscus flower, I settled for the closest one...





For the stamping I used Bundle Monster plate BM-221...


I was kind of disappointed in the pattern. If you click on the above photo you can zoom in to see the pattern. The flowers are aligned around the outside of the pattern and in the middle is just little leaves. When I stamped with it, most of the flowers were off my nail and I had tiny leaves front and center. Not quite what I had in mind. For the manicure I went back and filled in some of the spaces with additional leaves just so it wouldn't be bare. Next time I will try stamping individual flowers so I can place them where I want them.

Here was my inspiration and more of what I wish the pattern would look like...


Thanks for looking!

  3. it looks cute and I think you are really close to what you had in your mind (the picture you showed at the end). BM plates are sometimes a bit tricky...
