Jelly Stampwich Fail

I bet you can already sense how excited I am about today's manicure. Ugh. Do you ever have one of those days where everyone says it looks fine, but you hate it anyway? That's how I feel about these nails. I saw this gorgeous mani by Cazzy at SpecialGirl Nails and loved it. Of course I had to try it myself, but I didn't have a grey jelly so I went with something a little brighter. I should have just let the jelly do its thing, but I was worried about the color being too translucent so I put on a white base coat. Then didn't wait long enough for it to dry and started stamping over the whole thing. It all turned out mushy and squishy, but not in a good jelly way.

The color is quite fun and it really pops on the white but I'll have be more careful the next time I use it. I got a lot of shrinkage around the edges as you can see especially on the pink.

Two coats Sally Hansen, White Tip
Two coats Sinful Colors, Boogie Nights
Stamped with Bundle Monster plate BM-314
One more coat of SC
