Painted all the nails gold and applied silver with a sponge to the tips. I coated all the nails with a coat of Seche Vite and allowed to dry.
I always use a clear coat before stamping directly to the nail because if something goes wrong with the stamping all I need to do is apply and quickly remove a piece of tape and it will remove the stamping polish without damaging the polish underneath.
stamped on a tree with Fingers black (their polishes are highly pigmented and work wonderfully for stamping) on the ring fingers and added a thin line of black at the tips to "plant" the tree. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.
My nails have been a creative outlet since the minute I quit biting them in 1984! There was a time I could just put on a pretty polish and be happy for 2 weeks or so. Not anymore!
