Adventures in Stamping - Young Hearts Run Free


The theme that won this week's adventures in stamping vote was a mani inspired by your favourite music. I did this mani inspired by one of my favourite songs, Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Statton. Not my usual pick, I'm an indie chick at heart, but this song was on the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack, which I played untikl the tape wore out (90's, darling) when I was about 15. For the mani I started with 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow, let it dry then taped off a section before using colours from the Color Club Poptastic Collection (which I picked up at TK Maxx this week) to make neon skittles. I peeled the tape off while the polish was wet and retaped it for the stamping. I used HB 29 and Wet n Wild Black creme to stamp the pattern over the coloured part only.

Before the stamping
So happy with how this came out. I had visions of a big horrible mess, and while the lines aren't perfect and the stamping leaves a bit to be desired, I love it. Now, excuse me, I'm off to a roller disco...
