Stamped Stars mani

I hope everyone who celebrates it, had a wonderful holiday this July 4th!
Jas and I went to the city's fireworks display, which was excellent, on the night of the 3rd. But even more magical than that was the view from the place Jason goes to run. We had a nearly unobstructed 360 degree view of all the fireworks in the area, and we were the only ones there. We stood outside the car for nearly an hour and it was absolutely breathtaking.

Anywho - below is what I wore for the holiday. Albeit a little late, I thought I would share anyways. I used plate JQ4, MdU 1, and a GPS stamper to stamp the stars. The gradient was made with a base of Polish My Life Stripped and Essie Style Cartel. Which matched the gradient of my shirt perfectly! (linked shirt image is from cj banks catalog, not taken by me)

If you don't celebrate, I still hope your day was fantastic! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Jen, this is a super cute gradient and you used pretty colors. I like the patriotism, and the absence of red is unique for a July 4th mani! (Love the top, too. I bet you looked so cute and color-coordinated!)

  3. Hi- I'm looking into buying my first stamping plate, and I'm wondering if you could tell me any more about JQ plates? They're inexpensive, but I hope that doesn't mean cheap quality or difficult for beginners. What advice can you give me?

    1. I've had no issue stamping with JQ plates so far, the only concern may be that there's no backing. So if you get these, be careful of the edge - its sharp and I've read about people cutting their fingers on them. As long as you use care when handling, it shouldn't be an issue.
