China Glaze Electric Beat + Stamping


Good morning!

Now that the Black and White Challenge is over I'm back with a bright, spring mani.

I started with one coat of China Glaze Electric Beat. What I can't remember is if I added a second coat or not. I don't think so, because I remember getting really good coverage with one...Aanyway...



Electric Beat is part of China Glaze's spring collection and it's a bright blue creme that leans periwinkle at times. It has a wonderfully buttery application, it's that kind of thick formula in a good way.

Then I stamped with my Red Angel plate 109 and Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Gold Chrome.


Just look at the detail on that flower! I love this design so hard.
I took a bajillion pictures because I just liked it too much. I hope you guys enjoy it too!

    1. Hi! I use stamping plates. There's many different sets and brands, this particular design was from Red Angel (http://www.amazon.com/Nailart-Polish-Stamping-Manicure-Accessories/dp/B005VX8S4G). You'd also need a stamper and a scraper (http://www.amazon.com/Nail-Art-Double-Stamper-Scraper/dp/B002MZ8BK2/ref=sr_1_1?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1333331825&sr=1-1), although I use old gift cards for the scraper.

      If you're interested in getting into stamping you can also start with the Salon Express kit that's being sold in Walgreens and CVS. I personally started practicing with the Red Angel plates then got a different set.

      This is also a really good tutorial on stamping http://www.ooohshinies.com/2011/08/how-to-stamping.html

      Hope this helps. If there's anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask or email me!
