Peacock Stamping Decals ~ My First Go

I'm not sure if it was the fabulous Julia from Messy Mansion or someone else who invented the nail stamping decal, but they deserve lots of pretty things. I honestly don't know how some of you ladies think to do some of these creative techniques, but I'm thankful for the need to discover from all of you.
I decided to give nail stamping decals a go. I'm not a very patient person I was unsure of how long this first attempt would take. Thankfully everything worked out and I was pleasantly surprised with the time and result.
I stamped the full peacock feather image from MM14 with Sinful Snow Me White and let it dry. I then took a small brush and hand painted in the blue and green, China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses and Blue Year's Kiss. After two coats of Snow Me White I stamped the same image with Blue Year's Kiss and Zoya Ivanka.
After that dried I added a layer of fast dry top coat, let dry, pushed off with my nail and voila! Have you tried this new technique?


  1. I'm with you. I can never wrap my head around the creation of these techniques! I think I'm going to try making these this weekend :)

    1. You really should Katie! I was preparing myself with the worst and was so happy with the result!
